But on the bright side, I worked a trip to run the Ridge July 11th for Pumpkin and I to spend some quality time together into the labour budget. On the down side my sweat equity was probably only a few $$$ and hour

Done my share of roofing. I"m with Mike.

UGH....... I hate it. Down here in the heat and humidity it's really bad. Roofed my house in December though.

Hey Mike - quick question - I notice that my Corsa sticks out about 3/4" too much for my liking - looking at the video of yours though and I can see that you don't have that issue and its perfect - did you have trouble with that when installing at all and have to shorten?

Mine is really annoying me - looks like a wheelbarrow haha!

I too don't like them sticking out very far either. LMR did the install and it was setup perfectly. Pretty sure yours can be adjusted.

Now, this weekend at the track I had some issues with exhaust stretch. When it got hot the tips stuck out a couple more inches and even got so bad that the right side came off the rear hanger. Once it cooled down we got it back on correctly and everything was as before, but it was pretty crazy seeing it expand that much. The rubber hanger probably wasn't fully on, because it's really hard to see it come completely off like that.

Here's a track video from Saturday.

I tried to capture the sound a bit better by putting the GoPro on my license plate but it was way too loud and sounded like crap but I'm uploading it anyway, since the video is pretty good.

I can't wait for yours to be back on the road again too.

The sound is not right at all but that's just the lame GoPro (not a fan of GoPro)

When you get that Z you'll have to come down for one of these. Looks like our next track rental will be in October. We did have one guy come from Austin on this one

Thanks I'll have to check it out again

Unrelated question - how did you mount the go pro back where you had it behind the drivers seat? I'd love a video like that at the strip in mine

I put one of the flat sticky mounts at the top of the rear window and then snap the GoPro in and out.

One of my main reasons for doing this is I can keep it plugged up all the time so when the battery goes dead your video doesn't stop. However, there is a MAJOR problem with that. The GoPro uses up the full battery charge before it uses the wired source so when you turn the car off and the battery is dead the GoPro shuts off as well (unless you keep the key turned to on). Then the next time you fire back up for a run there's not enough power to even turn the damn thing on so you have to charge the battery long enough for power on.

I missed what would have been the best video ever because it wouldn't turn on. I went off track doing 360's in both directions and grass flying in the windows. No video. GoPro fails me every time.
