    I figured out why it gets so washed out, it's because I have been putting it through two editing programs from the original footage.

    Not sure what camera you're using, but if it's a gopro and it has spot metering option it will give you MUCH better lighting both in the car and out the window (at the same time).

    I make a lot of videos and social media posts in order to gain google adsense revenue. So, I know I have a bit of a different style than most competitors but there is method to my madness.

    Anyways here is my first video of the season. Round 1 & 2 from my seat.

    The best way to handle it is to think of it as the OTAO complimenting your fantastic car preparation methods, because they aren't ready to admit that you out-drove them fair and square.

    Submitted race weight includes your weight, the 10% weight loss subtracts your weight and compares it to the weight of the base car. Doesn't change the math, just clarifying how the calculation works based on what numbers are entered.

    As long as you stay above 2942.1 + your weight as the race weight, you're good

    That's good. I would do what it took to make sure I didn't get hit with that rule. I have never actually weighed the car with full fuel, it's only been weighed empty, so that is one thing I am going to get done by a shop before I send in my final classification spreadsheet. I am assuming a full tank of gas weighs about 120 lbs. 80L tank in my current rough draft classification.

    Well its one year late but I signed up this year for every single event.
    I haven't been to most of the tracks on the schedule so that will be an adventure.
    My car again this past summer.


    Come say hello in the pits.

    Well 50% of the season came and went without me being able to attend a single event.

    I will miss Mosport too with other commitments.

    Maybe I will make the last event at GBR which is very close to me. Tires are the main concern but I will probably just run on some well used "non premium R comps".

I got an OTA banner on my windshield and sometimes I find myself having to explain why this, and why that.. I do my best, but this isn't helping.


    In an attempt to get this thread turned around.. Mike, can you share some photos and build related material - there are a few 350Z owners competing in OTA and I am sure they would love to see it.
    Uh, well the best place to follow from my beginnings in March of last year would be my "track car conversion" thread.

    You have to take me with a grain of salt. I'm a total rookie and I have a weird sense of humour that usually results in me doing things for my own entertainment.

    More recently I created a Facebook page. A) to copy a "rival" of mine who did so as well. B) to limit my constant posts about cars and racing to my Facebook friends who really want to hear about it. The others don't have to like the page and won't be bothered. C) I noticed people who reached out to social media as well as doing well were more easily able to gain at least partial sponsorship. D) feed traffic to my YouTube page which actually makes me some money now.

    It's so easy to update Facebook and everyone who was interested has kinda gathered there so it's now becoming the most up to date.
    "Michael Gardner Motorsports" on Facebook is the public page. I know sounds uh, self absorbed. But that's not the intent at least.

    I'm 2THPWR on YouTube as well. slowestfastcar on Instagram.

    Look forward to seeing you guys on the 22nd. Except for riann. I want to hold the SSR record over the winter please.
