Sunday Funday turned into a monsoon

Nothing ends an autocross faster than lightning. Got 4 runs in the morning and then after lunch we got enough rain to stage a regatta in the parking lot. It was a biblical raining sideways in curtains sort of affair.

Unfortunate, I generally don’t start pushing until the afternoon when I’ve done enough recon to be comfortable with the layout.

The plus is that I did get to play with my new toys.

OBD Link is a neat tool. Pulls a ludicrous amount of real-time data off the ECU. Ties into TrackAddict app perfectly for logging some additional data.

With the Ram Mount I wanted to see if an old phone could work as a gopro and data logger. The mount is pretty solid. People use it on motorcycles at highway speeds so I figured it would stay in the car. Works flawlessly with the included safety tether. No complaints.

TrackAddict for some reason didn’t record my last and fastest run so here’s an earlier one to see the video quality and course layout. (Phone is a Nexus 6P, so nothing too special for the camera). Didn’t turn out as shaky as I was expecting, not a bad experiment. Probably should still get a gopro though.
