I've got about 4k pictures going up right now. I got all of A and B. But only some shots to C from grid. Thanks to the 2 spotters who successfully kept me from bodily injury.

There are almost 1k up there now. I'll post again when they are all up there.

The A and B shots were down the long slalom favoring the passenger side so you could see how close you are getting in the slalom and knowing getting close on the passenger side is a lot harder than being close on the driver side. There are a few shots of each car in the sweeper before the slalom. Only because I was already there. I could get some nice close ups on drivers which was nice. If you took the wrong (or in my opinion the correct line) you got the port a potty in the back ground. I tried to avoid that as much as possible. smile.gif

Awesome shots, I really look like a gorilla driving the Fiat.

Too much fun (first TO run of the day... not sure what the time was, but I was playing around with the handbrake and sliding around a lot, so I'm sure it was slow)

Thanks Brad!
544-555 is a perfect example of how not to slalom.

All the pictures I took are uploaded. I haven't had a chance to look at them. If you spot a good one post it up!

Great pics Brad. There is some interesting analysis to be done here for being ahead vs. behind in the slalom (and the resulting cone count). Here's how to NOT enter a slalom: while countersteering.

Stupid Prius tires. I should quit autocross and become a mad tyte drifter.

Unfortunately they plaster all the facebook, twitter, etc. sharing buttons on the page but make it hard to share a photo on a forum. To get the url to a photo, start at the thumbnail view, click share in the top right corner, then click Get Link, then click on the photo you want a link to, then select the size, medium or large is about the right size for the forum.

Your goal this week, is to get that big two sticker off your car before the paint fades around it and you have it permanently there.

It's already gone, just gotta scrub the glue residue off. I've been told that wax works, but I have none. Also been told that WD-40 works, but again I have none (I use PB Blaster when I need something to get slippery).

Didn't you tell me to "just turn, and trust your tires"?

Well, that's a start. I would say come over and borrow some (or I'll do it, even the sticker goo on the roof from the protective wrap stuff), but it would cost you more gas than a bottle of wax would cost (well most typically available waxes).

The spray bottle stuff is ok? Will try to pick some up tonight...

Well, yeah. Once you took my advice you dropped your times below mine. wink.gif

All kidding aside, I'd say your tires are "trustworthy." Mine on the other hand...read my signature below.

Yeah i would just try some detail spray first and and nice towel ( i like microfiber). Mothers makes showtime and meguiars makes qwik detailer, all reasonable price and performance.
