Re: Cracquisition

The reason for brake pressure on me is mainly because of me.... The brake goes on a lot when I'm driving. Often with the throttle position is 100%. I've always done it. You do it in drag racing, you do it in stunt driving. You do it when you're scaring yourself on an autocross course. So, people chi...

Re: Cracquisition

Some of the modern cars like the Evo have a lot of factory sensors you can monitor. But even on the old cars, aftermarket wheel sensors and such are pretty cheap. I'd like to figure out my brake applications. I know you can monitor the brake lights like Stephen and Jason do, but since I rest on the ...

Cracquisition

Spent lunch with Will Kalman today reviewing our DL1 laps in fun runs in the SameSexMarriageBleuCivie.

I'm fully a Data Cracquisition addict now.

I was thinking we could charge Ron for the workout? We're getting him into good shape!

Who thought that a right wing wacko could be such a great guy???? Somebody let Ann Coulter know her dream man autocrosses with us! ;) ;)

Re: Photos, CASOC Weekend

Thanks for chiming in Kurtis.... Relief!!!

Even its not competitive, autocrossing a hot rod truck can be a lot of fun. I loved watching the corner workers scramble backward every lap I ran in my V8 Dakota Club cab.

Hey uber geek.

What data acq is that in Nancy's car? I'd like to combine video and data. I see you can do that with the DL1 software I've been playing with.

54mph is painful. Gesh.

Re: 05/25/08 Casoc Event (results are up)

Will and I did a comparison in fun runs in the civie. We both ran in the 66's within a tenth or two. But the laps were very different with us blowing different parts. Gave us a theoretical lap of 64.7. Given 68.1 won the competition runs, I guess we all leave time out there. I wonder if an STS 64 se...

Re: 05/25/08 Casoc Event (results are up)

The CASOC event did show one thing very clearly. We couldn't have pulled it off without the huge step up of Aaron Goldsmith and Christine Berry (and Marshall too, but he's quieter). It so cool to have young smart hard working types stepping into event leadership roles. You're going to make our event...

Bummer Kurt! You bumped out my little brother in his first event by 27 hundredths. There is no SK factor in novice classes so you run off the full DS index of .815. Kurt Rahn 73.245 .815 59.695 Tadd Ekstrand 73.487 .816 59.965 Lil bro ran 69 in fun runs! Does that count for something? I'm pretty pro...
