Hey, ha ha the El Camino was me, does anyone happen to have any pictures or video of it? If you do can you please post them or send them to me, thanks!

This was my very first time at an autoslalom, all my track time so far has been drag racing but this was Way more fun! Perfect weather and a lot of great cars, and a well put together event, it was awesome!

I have no idea to be honest, I haven't seen the results yet.

No crazy drifts, apparently slip angle decreases with age. Maybe I was just being timid because it's the first event in a while but the ass of the car was in line most of the time.

Here's some video from my GoPro V2.

The GoPro got wacked by a tall cone http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cm5v6LeLUbM

Here's some other runs. I was trying to capture the tire dynamics to see what was happening. Not suprisingly, lack of camber up front equals tons of rolling onto the shoulder and understeer.

I only have the raw times as we didn't get competitor's "car profile sheets" to calculate PAX factors. We'll have to wait until they return in future events to get a proper score for this one. Sorry.

Hey Marc, thanks for getting an action shot of my El Camino, I had a blast! Do you happen to have any more of it?

Jabela, ha ha thanks. Considering that the car is massive, heavy, no rear sway bar, 4 wheel drum brakes and that I have never autocrossed before, I dont think that I embarassed myself too bad

It doesn't matter what you drive, as long as you have fun
Hope to see you out again, hopefully the coursed will be more wide open.

Major amounts of fun were had! I will definitely be back out, maybe bring the Neon, but I figure that I will be slow no matter what I drive so I may as well enjoy it. Lol. I was actually really surprised with how "well" the car did in the tight sections.
