I dont have any other jump vids but It jumps very well and flat :( Im still waiting for pics of a dune "launch" I did at sand mountain. The crowd said I was about 15ft high and I counted 73 normal walking steps far. I paid dearly for it but it was awesome. :lol:

If anyone is bored, I've added the the last races from Rolling Ranch to my youtube page. We're running at Smithton hole 7/23 if anyone is interested, South of Pittsburgh PA. Running at Line mtn next weekend and big als (wheel to wheel) July 30, 31. Both of those are an hr north of Harrisburgh PA.

First Race, managed to lead pole to pole :D


Second race, started last due to inverting the field, finished second. I was more than happy with my day.



I'd encourage anyone in the area to come out and play or just spectate. It's always a great time!!!

You have got to get a in-car camera. Looks like a blast..

I've got in car from the old car but the camera won't work in the new car. It works right up until I rev the engine, then it shuts down. I'm fairly certain the rf interference from the ign sysem is kicking it off. I want to get a go pro or something similar for it but buying parts to keep the car moving keeps getting in the way :( If someone wants to donate one, I'll get you lots of video :D Some day.... I'd love to get a contour plus or a contour gps but I've heard they're having some video issues. The ability to overlay a gps image on the video would be cool!

Tom

PS if you find yourself on the right coast, come on out and see for yourself. It is a blast!

give a man a watch and he'll allways know what time it is. give him two and he can never be sure again.

Things are rarely just crazy enough to work, but they're frequently just crazy enough to fail hilariously.

There is Southwick in Connecticut. www.cc4w.org
I've never raced there because they race on sundays and it's a fairly long ride home after the race to work on Monday.
A lot of the guys from New York liked racing there.
I'm told it's a bit of a tight track, passing is a bit difficult. It certainly looks like fun though.

They were doing some races in NJ but didn't do any this year.

Rolling ranch would be a hike for you http://www.nooraoffroadracing.com. It's north of Pittsburgh but it's currently probably the most active track for Superbuggies short of traveling out to Indiana to the Maora series, http://www.maoraracing.us Rolling Ranch is a fast track, nice people.

Big Als is about an hour north of Harrisburg here in PA. It's a small flat track, no jumps. It's a lot of fun though. Most people come friday and camp for the weekend. Most times they have a party Sat night, many times the track owner will have his band come and play. They run 2 races Sat, 2 Sunday. They have a kids race after the regular races on Sat.

If you look at my post http://www.shoptalkforums.com/viewtopic ... 8&t=136155 you'll see this year's schedule. Most of the time racing starts in May.

Hot, humid air is less dense than cooler, drier air. This can allow a golf ball to fly through the air with greater ease, as there won't be as much resistance on the ball.
