MSR Cresson track Day – Apex Driving Academy – 7/09/2011


A good day.  Since I ran this direction a month ago, it was a chance to look for improvements in driving skill.

Basic setup:

  • 2.8* camber front
  • 2.5* camber rear
  • 0 toe all around
  • Fuzion ZRi street tires
  • Rear bar: min-stiffness
  • Front bar: medium stiffness
  • 50.5% cross weight


  • Cool suit test day, and new firesuit: Sparco Pro-X.
  • Improve on lap times from last month.
  • Evaluate front sway bar change

Vimeo setup


So, most other SM folks seem to use vimeo for posting race videos.  It seems a little more race-video friendly, so I opted to follow the herd.  I went with the PLUS account which means I can upload 5GB per week.  Since, so far the videos seem to be about 1GB per 20 minute session…the extra $60 / year seemed worth it.

I’ve only uploaded a couple videos at this point, but here is my channel:

There will be some upcoming posts that show videos from my recent track day, along with some explanations.  I’ve also added a vimeo embedded plugin to this site, so that I can put a vimeo player directly in the posts that will link to, and play the videos from vimeo.
