My Z in the wet

I had nooo traction. My supersports were beaten to hell from some track weekends. Rears had little tread and outer front edges were worn down.

Apologies for the crappy video...does anybody know a good (and easy) program to use to edit gopro videos in a youtube friendly format?



I'm trying to arrange for me to get on my buddy's lot behind his building when it's vacant so I can get some good dry slides. It would be a private lot so I won't get into any trouble

Car sounds great!!!!!

I've had pretty good luck using windows movie maker, and that should already be on your system.. IF all you want to do is "trim" the movie clips and maybe add captions or music, I've had good luck with that.

Arqray! Love it dearly.

Quiet at idle and putzing around town but throaty/racey when you get on it.

Garage List
I found iMovie much easier than Windows Movie Maker. WMM takes long because it converts the GoPro format to a WMM format and reconverts it to something else. After getting tired of ridiculous export times, I now record all my sessions with my iPhone. I can trim as necessary on the phone, and then upload HD vids over wifi. See my link, most of the recent track vids are all done with iPhone.

Wow- I like that exhaust and found it is available in titanium which would be cool, BUT the cans alone are $2250 for SS and $4425 for titanium. No thanks...

Arqray is made in japan, in a little shop in yokohama. How interesting! I wish I could afford it. I call dibs on the first one that shows up in classifieds!

zero complaints. I'm very happy with the feel, and in fact, they're more comfortable than what i was anticipating based on an email echange with Phil.

i thought things would be unscrewing themselves with the vibration lol. so while i don't notice them in that sense, i do notice how much more connected my throttle to motor response is. almost instantaneous.

im soo lad you saying this.. i just have had no seat time with the car since the comp mounts when in, were under serious snow right now......from the runs i did manage... honestly.....??? the feel difference was huge but the downside were very few and far between, its such a mild downside its barely worth noting, its definitely their however, like a shimmy through the structure of the car.... but again very mild and almost kinda adds to the feel of things....

The difference in terms of the feel of things is massive.... with all the slop out of the mounts, the feeling is very noticeable.... i cant wait to get some proper seat time like you have done.....
