GGR AX#7 (Sep 8 2018) Photos

Re: GGR #6 at Marina...

Thanks for the preliminary results. Careful throttle feathering was key in this track, even in my relatively tame 987 Boxster. Took me a while to get a run where everything came together.

I'm very haply to have variety in layouts throughout the season and really enjoyed the nuances of the design.

Re: GGR #6 at Marina...

Traffic was pretty bad on the way back. About two hours to Redwood City.

I enjoyed the course, though one slalom would have been nice. Seems like it was an exercise in picking good lines.

Not conducive to high HP. Lots of gear changes would have been ideal though, so a PDK could have been nice.

I was in the Blue group, so these are of the second group (I think Green).

Re: AX 4 - Videos

Here's my best run: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_xvKmblnWI. I can see where I left some time on the table during/after the slalom. I should start looking at these the day-of instead of afterwards.

Here's a playlist of all my runs if you're interested.

I tried out my Hero 6 for the first time. Would love to hear your thoughts on image stabilization.
Feels slightly artificial but not distracting to me. Why did you mount the GoPro like a dashcam instead of outside or pointing to the steering wheel though?

Re: GGR AX#04 Prelim Results

I noticed for ax#4 I was reclassified from ss06 to ax10, however my car goes on ax11. Can you change my results from ax#4 to that class?

Bought a "refurbished" GoPro 5. Now I need to figure out how to mount it :-)
The suction cup mount that GoPro sells directly is really good. I'd give that a shot if you want to mount it outside your vehicle.

Re: One Little Cone

Sorry to hear about your radiator. :(

Not sure if there are prefab options, but some wire mesh might work pretty well for objects that are not thin and still be relatively lightweight.
