Default Road course fun

A couple of weeks ago I spent the day at Portland international Raceway for a performance driving class. Including 4 20min lapping sessions with one on one instructor.

It was loads of fun. I would recomend it to all here.

Here is a short vid of one lap near the end of the day.

I don't remember his brand, but it'* what inspired me to fab mine up.

Mike, we need to see your speedo and tach! Get that camera farther back or put a wide-angle lens on!

The mount is from ECS tuning and clamps to the head rest posts.

I have tries to get the cluster in the view with out much sucsess. The instruments are in a bit of a cave and have been too dark to see on camera. I still have one other camera position to try.

Temporarily add a white neon tube above the gauges for daylight.

Mike is a co-worker of mine.

He drives a VW Jetta. 4-banger. With a Neuspeed Eaton M45 conversion. Got boost?
He'* got headers, custom heads, PCM, and a few other goodies. Including water/methanol injection.
