Default Osamu's In Car Video in the Orange Mustang in SCCA Wheel to Wheel

Here's a clip (52 MB by the way so hope you have a fast connection) of the in car cam on the last race, the April 2006 SCCA Wheel to Wheel.

http://racing.localbattery.com/1997m...strace2006.wmv

BTW, the car in front, the whole time unfortunately, is Ed Kemper's Sports 2000.

I really miss running the car at HRP, but hope that we can find another alternative for a bigger, better and safer track. Hopefully then, I can build an even faster car. Thinking maybe a Z06 or even totall gutting my G35 and putting in twin turbo, etc.

Anyway, looking forward to at least doing some cone dodging on Sunday. Not as exciting, but better than nothing.

See now Osamus car sounds WAY faster than the other stuff that was posted. Is your car just really quiet inside, Rick? I mean... I'm assuming that Osamu's car (was it the orange mustang?) is pretty much just a race car whereas your Impala looks all nice and "street" comfy.

Default FH Car...Wow!

That thing looks like you are flying, since it is so low to the ground and all the wind noises and stuff.

My car just was really loud because it had no interior or carpet, no cats and straight exhaust. Wasn't a super fast car but sounded fast anyway.

Watching the videos makes me miss HRP. Hope we can come up with a solution soon.

LOL!! My car is just that quiet... sadly. Full interior, Dynamat in the trunk, rear windows up w/ camera in the back seat, leather, etc... plus Osamu has a slightly higher hp motor... LOL. I am doing suspension mods for now, but eventually I'll tackle the motor. It won't be the tame ***** she is now for very long... LOL

I'd say Rick's Impala is a straight up cruiser...comfy and quiet. He likes to race in style.

Actually, it was either an Impala or a full size truck. Those are all I fit in - LOL. The Impala won hands down.
