Default Gopro video of my autox runs from the weekend!

just to give everyone an idea of the size of the course I put this video together.. I was one of the slower cars there because the OEM sachs clutch doesn't like boost.. anyways.. ENJOY!

The course was huge! I hit about 65 in 2nd on the AW71 in my wagon on the first straight stretch.

Best time was in the 42-second range, average was 48-ish.

it was a pretty large setup. less than 50mph except for the first straight. Didn't tach out the 1.99 2nd gear with a 3.73 rear end.

Cool video bud, it was good to see another grand'pa series out there flogging it.

I wonder if anyone got any footage of the Gold car out on the track?

I hope Kyle will post results some place. I want to see how I did.

You still gotta cut down some body roll Toby. You ALMOST scraped the bumper again, WAY more roll than mine had even. Still looked and sounded damn nice!

I know I know. 400# coilovers are in the garage waiting for the welder. That should take care of that roll. Still got a 45.34 bumper scraping and all.
I still feel like there is way more car than driver at this stage.

That was certainly the issue with mine. Kyle ripped off a 45.2 or so in mine having never driven it before, vs. my 47.4 after several runs and knowing the car. A faster spooling turbo and it woulda been awesome!

Even though I didn't make it, at leastI got to see the view over my color hood with the same wheels, thanks for that.
