Sharing HPDE Pics from October at Motorsport Ranch

Thought I would share a few pictures fo the last HPDE I drove and instructed in at Mortorsport Ranch in Cresson, Texas on October 20-21, 2012.
I am the driver in the Stilo helmet, the guy in the passenger seat is a good friend that is trying to find an Interlagos Blue Z4 M Coupe also. I thought I would give him a few trips around the track. Great weekend at the track!

Cool!

Here's what DSC_OFF did to mount his Iphone. This, plus Harry's Lap Timer, yields a really great combo. Take a look at the first post in the thread--it shows what can be done with the HLT and Iphone combo.

It would be awesome to have video of the new track Austin.

Car looks great TexasZ4MC; it's been a while since I saw one with stock wheels on track

I use the TomTom Car Kit mount with HLT and it works great and has the added benefit of the external GPS receiver's accuracy. I have HLT set to record at 720p. Some of my videos are here:

Umm, sorry if this is a dumb question, but what's wrong with the stock wheels at the track?

Beautiful car, btw.

DSCHULTZ, the front tires are not capable of handling a wide enough tire to get the majority of understeer out of the car. Per TC Kline the best for this car is 18.9.5 et35 fronts with 255/35/18 and 18x10 et22 rears and 275/35/18's

Ugh, I told myself I'd find a way to drive on Austin. I've been checking your chapter's site to see if there was any mention. Question is whose car do I drive down there? But I'd seriously make a trip out there just to get DE weekend in... I wonder if I can rent a car for the weekend but take out Lockton policy on a rental lol.
