OK, finally got the video compressed (a lot) to fit on here, it was 40M!

Looks like drag season is over for me- On my last lap at the rallycross I blew the seals out of the turbo and now the intercooler fills with oil until the BOV opens and sprays it all over the engine compartment! Then I blew a radiator hose while doing a hill climb at the dunes and didn't let off the gas until the engine sputtered out with no water in the coolant system. I'm sure the heads are toast, if not more.

I'm just about done with my replacement engine but no time left in the season to drag it. It has stage 2 delta cams, spider intake, stainless header, T3 turbo, water-to-air intercooler and I'll be seting up megasquirt for it as well. Next season should be a good one.

Enjoy the video!

I have my autocross videos but there's no way I could compress them down to 1M. I want to find somewhere that I can upload them for cheap or free.

Nice video! Great sound! What rpm do you shift at going from 2nd to 3rd gear? 2nd gear seems mighty short.

that isn't all that loud. 2.5 open exhaust and a little glass pack will give you that. Almost all our race/rally cars sound identical.

I don't really watch the tach when I shift, I just wait for what feels like the end of the power band, it's probably around 6500. I would have shifted into second much quicker like I did the 2-3 shift but something was slipping. A friend of mine said the front wheels made a little smoke leaving the line but I had it locked in 4wd???

My trap speed was 93. Did you notice the cut-out that happened twice at the end of the track? Not sure what that was but megasquirt should fix it!

I'll see about posting the other hi-res videos on that site. Thanks!!!

I noticed that. I thought maybe you were blipping the throttle to avoid breaking out, but I guess not.

Yes, I had to replace the front axle assembly in my Jeep after that jump and the second Jeep video is one I took on the way to the dealer to trade it in! Haha, I still see it driving around from time to time, I wish I could show the new owner these vids!

The V8 muscle car one was against a small block Nova if memory serves me right.

You can't really see what's going in in the rally cross vid but you can see what the XT6 swaybars did for me. Looks like hardly any body roll, a lot of it is the low tire pressure too.

ENJOY!
