    First real auto cross since I bought the car in '07

    No offense meant to Levi and the crew, but the NG auto crosses lack a lot to me when compared to the local fair that I am used to. Our autox club acquired huge pavement that used to be the main parking lot for a Six Flags amusement park. Just a guess, but I'd bet that today's course was a mile and a half in length, it was like a medium sized road course minus a long straight and a big sweeper. I have some vids from my new GOPRO that I'll post up when I get them uploaded to youtube.

    Sorry, been working OT this week and need to edit the Vids to just the runs, then upload to the 'tube. Hopefully I'll have time this weekend.

    NG was the first AutoX I've ever seen so it would be cool to see some different track setups

    2nd place NG13 - Drags FWD 3S. 18.862 @ 75.62mph (with spun bearing)

    Read post #3. I'm waiting for the upload to finish to youtube now, the vid should be up sometime Sunday morning. Hi Def uploads to the 'tube suck.
    Here's the video:


    The courses on this huge lot are around 1.5 miles in length and speeds get up to around 75 mph in some cars. I was battling overheating all day. Each run had the car hotter than the run before and by run #3, I had to skip a run to let the car cool down a bit. The last run started at 100C and was up over 115C by the end. I didn't push it on the last video and was watching the temp. gauge instead of the cones.

    '99 front end, GT PRO FMIC and ducting, twin flex-a-lite puller fans, another set of fans on the A/C condenser. A/C fans run only when system is on, but they free spin just as fast from the other ones to help guide air through the cores. I am going to change out the thermostat today to see if it might be deffective.
    Oh, and the radiator is a 3SX dual pass.
