A bit of In Car footage from my most recent track session. I messed around with the camera to get some driver footage. Apologies if you don't like Metallica but I had both windows down which played havoc with the sound. Feel free to hit mute!

Haha, yeah I don't like the music either but it was a hot Aussie day and I kept forgetting to wind the passengers window up.
I'll remember next time ;)

Thanks, and in HD:rock:

Nice little track, all by your self:rock: Was it sundown or sunup?

I struggle with different mics to get the recording sound that is best. Wind noise haunts me. When I instruct I use tire noise as a main input into how much control that a driver has. Hard to judge without it.

I'll use your footage for students who don't step-step-step there hands on the steering wheel and just cross there arms.

Us USDM bloks will do a doubletake when viewing the shiftpattern:huh:

Again thanks, your hitting the marks. Keep on trucking!

Yeah the noise is usually ok but it was a hot day and waiting to go out I had both windows down.
when I first got into tracking my car every instructor had different opinions regarding crossing the arms or not. I find it easier this way, especially finding staight ahead coming out of tight corners.
The footage is at sundown. We end up going for a few hours at night as the track is pretty well lit. Its nice for turbos and if its been a hot day the track stays pretty warm for grip.
Cheers for the comments.:icon_biggrin:

I've seen crossing an not crossing argued both ways.

For those that argue to not cross, watch F1 footage some time.

For those that argue to cross, watch WRC some time.

I think it's a preference thing and also a vehicle specific method. Cars that have a quick enough rack that you can cover all of the steering input you have w/ a cross, that'd be ideal. If you're having to utilize more than 270 degrees of wheel input, than shuffle steer is the way to go.

Different strokes for different folks.
