Not vintage but a good vid on an auto Crosser.

This guy must fly around interviewing people.

LS powered autocrosser. Some serious skills to make metal flares in 40 hours. Same interviewer as the Detroit Speed vid above.

2100 lbs, makes C1ís look like they have a significant advantage. No padding on those hoops makes me cringe.

I had considered buying a visor-cam. Now, its off my list. Maybe an Oculus Q2 and sim-rig for same price point.
[Just did a quick review - and it might not be there just yet either...I'll spend money on car instead.}
Lots of power in that one though.

Thanks for bringing it onboard. Cheers - Jim

Yes this is the sound, really hard to capture it with a Gopro, I tried a lot of expensive remote microphones but not much success , Yet ! And I don't have the money to go to a professional system. Sad....

I was actually looking for info on mounting a fuel cell like the vintage c3ís, and this guy had a video that showed some detail. He has a bunch of videos on fixing up this old widebody and racing another 69. I will link one here.

I didnít realize kirkey made an adjustable 62 series seat. I tried the pro street kirkey seat a few years ago and not enough lay-back.

Somebody gave him a bunch of parts, it is in one video. Always looks like he was out partying the night before.


This is kind of neat, from Australia.
