A gift from Montreal...

While NOT racing in Montreal, I decided I'd finally put the two video angles from Laguna together. So I don't have to write it again, here's the youtube description:

"Video taken during practice from two cameras in the Stevenson Motorsports Camaro GS.R at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. We were experimenting with some setups that gave the car some unexpected rhythmic bouncing, which is ultimately what caused the spin at the end. A modified version of this setup is what qualified us on pole and won the race!"

Enjoy!!!

Hey Matt !! Who sez you can't teach an old dog new tricks?? GRRrrrreat post!! Montreal's loss, my gain!! Far as I'm concerned you and young Edwards put on a "driving clinic" during Saturday's race!! Couple of times I thought you guys were going to end up like the 15!! Wowzers!!

In any event from your video, I've learned that 4 is faster than what I've been thinking, learned a different approach to 6 and how to get through 8 ( I hope) and into 9!! As for 5, still up for grabs!!

As for the "bouncing" I couldn't imagine it would have anything to do with the rumble strips, would it??

Thanks again Matt!! Now how's about Sears Point?? Help!!Help!!

Haha, thanks. The bouncing was from a damper issue we were having at extreme adjustments. It was sort of rhythmic in the sense that it would oscillate from oversteer to understeer depending on which end was bouncing at the time. If you timed it incorrectly (as I did) and had the rear light on turn in, it would come around pretty quick.

I coach at Infineon, come take a course or PM me for some private coaching!

Matt, awesome stuff! Thanks so much for taking the time to put this together and post it. One of my best days as a 2010 Camaro SS owner was last year at Mid-Ohio where I met you and the rest of the Stevenson team and got any up close tour of the pits and the Stevenson Camaros. Its so cool to know that the heart of my car and your race car are practically the same ( engine and drive train) especially as you consistently beat up on those Mustangs and BMWs. Its priceless!
