  1. Looked up “the guy” you keep mentioning and then saw it was McCallion, he’s no spring chicken - old school pointy end 🤣 I remember flagging for that crew back in the day, probably 07-09 era. http://timingscoring.drivenasa.com/NASA_Texas_Region/2013 - Official Results/3 TWS_April/April 20 Cyclone Race 1 SM SSM.pdf
  2. Said goodbye to her last week. I don’t think I’ve ever felt as mixed about letting go of a car as I did with her. Definitely a few head turns before finally leaving it behind. It was a great car and anyone that buys one will be happy with the purchase. It had a personality and character. It is flawed, and lovable, and all things that make a great hatchback. Ultimately I realized that I am not a hatchback person. On to new things.
  3. It’ll be worth it, cleans up the cockpit so much.
  4. Without seeing direct pedal inputs (since this is all accelerometer based) and ignoring the other contributing variables like line selection, here's what I know: The vehicle crested the elevation change and there was a lift of the throttle. Combine both of those and you have an extremely light rear end while under lateral load upon entry. Driver made correction too late/slow for it. The rear had begun rotating by 22.98 but the correction came roughly a second later, regrettably after the rear had inertia. This was not a chained event from T2 other than it placing him off line for a minimal input/load corner entry. You mention "G's" multiple times in your original post and I think that's the important thing to address here: there is no absolute rule with G's, they are just one variable among many to analyze (1.6 does not equal spin, etc). The accelerometer (especially the one used in this video) is only telling one minor part of this story. It's the line and subsequent steering input, throttle input, and elevation change working in conjunction with/for the friction circle that caused this. Here's some great material on the subjects if you want to dive deeper: https://driver61.com/uni/weight-transfer/ https://www.jonathangoring.com/understanding-friction-circles/
  5. I think you need to get on track more, and perhaps more specifically on track at CoTA 🤠 Theres two major variables at play here: time and weight transfer. Your assessment grasps at those straws but doesn’t quite get it. IMO if you’re super new to all this, spend your time watching people do it right - not wrong. These are good teachable moments but don’t unpack this if you’re still wrapping your head around the sport in general, it’ll build more barriers than it breaks down for you. Welcome!
  6. that SM race... that SM finish... wow
