  1. An original meme. 😁

    I should have done a search first.

    Costco has the QuickJack BL-5000SLX on sale for $1,000. Does anyone have any experience with QuickJacks?
  4. I have an AiM Solo DL picking up the OBDII data from the car (e.g., steering angle, throttle, brake) and I use a custom Race Render template I created to do the overlay. An earlier version of the template is available here: https://github.com/atadams/racerender-audi-r18. I need to clean the current version up before I share — but it's pretty complicated and I'm doing some things that aren't easy in Race Render. I've actually created a Python script to make modifying some of the display object easier. I'll let you know when I post the current template.
  5. Date: March 31st, 2019 Car: 2016 Cayman S Track: COTA Lap time: 2:42.85 Weight with driver: 3300lbs BHP: 330 Tires: P Zeros First time at COTA and I never got a rhythm for this track. It may be the length meant there were fewer laps per session making it more difficult to figure out the different sections. I'm also relatively new at this and I'm still pretty slow! I hit the wall the session after this — shoulda quit while I was ahead!
  6. Looking at track insurance, the ones I've looked have a minimum deductible of 10% of the car's value, which is more than I'm paying. So it wouldn't have helped me in this particular situation. That said, I'll get it next time in case I have a situation where the damage is greater.
  7. Honestly, it's a little embarrassing and my first inclination was to keep the video to myself. You don't want to be one of those guys they show at DE classes as an example of what not to do, but I think the data makes it a pretty good teaching video. If others can see it and learn from my screw up then maybe they can avoid the same fate.
  8. It’s a GoPro Hero6 Black with an adhesive mount to the windshield. What you are seeing is the software image stabilization. It’s really good.

  10. If they charge me, I'm going to ask for the barrier. 😁
  11. Wish I had track insurance. Filed with my insurance to see what they say. It's USAA, so I probably have a small chance they'll pay. The estimate is $4,800. I'm sure there's another $1,000 in there. That won't break me.
  12. They dropped my car off at my garage and that's the last I've heard from COTA. I was hanging around expecting a visit but it never happened. PCA had me fill out an incident report.
  13. Plastic from the barrier melted to my tailpipe. The worst of it. Clear bra on the front so most of this will come off with it.
  14. I was turning in from mid track in earlier sessions but was trying some different lines this session and did go wider than usual at two. What tipped you off?
  15. I made a rookie mistake (i.e., I’m a rookie and I made a mistake) and lifted/coasted trying to take Turn 3 at COTA and spun off into the barrier. I didn’t correct quickly enough or near the right amount No injuries and it appears to be only cosmetic damage. Thanks to PCA, COTA, and the safety crews for being so professional.
