    Well, that was fun!

    You get the impression that, what with the Roadster last time, the 510, this time, and the BMW next, Adam enjoys the challenge of driving somethng that he is unfamiliar with, just for the edgy tension that adds to the mix.

    Maybe it would be too boring if we weren’t watching for him to come out of a corner with the wheel in his hands, as the car careened off the track?

    Great stuff guys. I love these racing shows and the footage is so cool! What car do you use in your intro? The one that is starting up.

    I cant believe how good the camera footage is. Watching it in HD is amazing.
    Get rid of that f”n transmission !

    Awesome Ace!!! You didn’t even drop any tire pressure guages on the track this time..:)

    You still owe us a rant on decibal meters.. I’m keep’n track..

    A few ideas for wheel quick disconnects: spa technique makes a good one with a connector in the boss for a racing dash type wheel so you only have one set of gauges (not sure if this is acceptable in the historics). I used it on my FSAE car in college.

    Also OMP makes a release that is impossible to F-Up. the wheel is either right or upside down, that’s it. Just measure the rack side to side and fix it before welding the bung on and you are good to go.

    SPEND money on this item, it is worth it. The last thing you want is to get DQ’d from tech due to escape time or be traped in a fire by a shitty disconnect.

    About your not knowing the track; get one of your pc buddies to set up a sim.
    1. decent pc with a decent vidio card
    2. wheel and pedal set – ~ $300
    3. the game rfactor – $20 (almost every car and track in the world, downloadable free)

    Better yet, get this guy in for an interview:
    (he won a sim racing contest and is now a real life driver sponsored in the
    GrandAm gs series and have him set it up!

    Excellent podcast and video from the historic races. I realize it was a different time back in the ’60’s and ’70’s but no driver’s side window net or HANS device? Was that your wife’s idea?

    If you guys were any tougher you’d rust!

    Keep up the excellent work.
