Default WHINE envy? Video with Audio!

Excuse the videograpy, but I was sober, driving, and it was dark. The sound, however, should speak for itself.

Startup bells and whistles.

Onto the bridge going out of town over the river.

http://home.comcast.net/~bonnevilleclub/3.MPG
Throttle play on the way out of town.....hard to see the boost gauge, but it'* hitting 12 or so. Maybe 13.

http://home.comcast.net/~bonnevilleclub/4.MPG
Tried to launch. Camera on top of car out the sunroof. Wind noise.

http://home.comcast.net/~bonnevilleclub/5.MPG
Hit triple digits, but video stopped at 90.

http://home.comcast.net/~bonnevilleclub/6.MPG
More throttle play.

Over the bridge back into town.

Looks slow, but this is a 25mph zone, and the BUMP you see is crossing railroad tracks.

That Eaton is spinning at 13,600 rpm'* at redline. Gotta love it while it still works. My apologies for the bad launch in #4, I think. I was trying to hold the cam, watch the road, and get a clean launch.......sober. And #4 was shot with the camera outside the car.......through the sunroof. That'* wind noise.

That sure sounds familiar to me. Your 0-60 time looks like around 6.5 sec now.
Sure you didn't have a few swiggs.

I wanted to hear some more screeching of tires.

How about doing that in the daytime so we can at least see something.
I know, the HUD shows up better in the dark.

Mine doesn't sound like that. You have a smaller pully and an intake, though. As for the screeching of tires, that wasn't that bad of a launch for doing all you were doing. I am still trying to eliminate the tire spinning on my launches. Not easy to do in these torquey machines--but gratifying just the same.

That sound is inside the car. Sounds the same (maybe a LITTLE louder) with the windows down rather than up, but I suppose it'* even louder as you go screaming by. Most of the noise is directed out through the headlight and fender by my heat shield.

The smaller pulley won't change the volume, but it does make it a higher pitch, and the boost comes on a bit quicker. Very snappy throttle and Eaton response.

Hi sweetie. You should just click on the links, and they should play in media player.

Or just right click on them, and click 'save target as'. Save them to the computer, then play them from the hard drive.

I thought I taught you better than that

caught the Dave Matthews in the first clip! Good choice. Were you trying to jump the railroad tracks in the other clip?

Jump tracks? I don't do that. Tell 'em pooky.

If I DID jump those tracks, it would be perfect. The approach and landing slopes are ideal......if I DID.

I wasn't that time, though. There was a car ahead of me, didn't know who it was if you know what I mean.
