Re: (MARRS-RX7) couple questions

The cheap ?HD? cam?s aren?t really HD. 
They might record in 720p resolution but they are doing it will about 480p of
data (it?s a hack).


I got the Motosports Hero camera (google
it) for $180.  It has lots of mounting options and records 1 hour Cable/TV (not
HD) quality on a 2GB SD card (which are like $10 each now).  You could get a
cheap digital ?still? camera that has a decent movie mode but they are hard to
aim right and turn on/off since you can?t see the screen.


If you want something ?good? get an
application specific race cam setup, OG racing has a new one that looks really


My, 2 (or 3) cents.

I'll be towing to the track, I just
think it would be fun to rive it around other than the track. well i hope it
doesn't rain since i realy don't thave the time to get a set of RA1 I had
considered just getting a good det of street tires just to beat on till i get
used to the car and then switch to the spec tires once i get a better idea what
i'm doing.  plus i can use them for just running around town when I feel
like driving it. As for the cam how important is having one with image
stablizing? i found a cool little hd cam that is 170 bucks.

Hi Danny,

   FATT's are run rain or shine.  For the rain we run unshaved
Toyo RA1's.  They offer good grip in the wet and wick water away
nicely.  But if you don't have any, the shaved toyos still offer very good
grip on a moderately wet track compared to street rubber with more tread. 
At least until it starts raining heavily, then full treads are the ticket.

   As for driving to the track, many of us have over the years but
not so much any more.  I stopped when I started doing the away races and
bought a trailer.  But prior to that I did the 40 mile drive to Summit many times and
used my spec 7 as a street car when my daily driver was broken.

   I always run a camera for races, but I'm running an old High 8
Sony.  Useful, but the quality of the analog video isn't very good. 
I realized this when Kevin Bailey was kind enough to share his MARRS 9 video
with me.  Very good quality.  Whatever Kevin is using, get one of
those.  -Al G

I'm a little behind in getting things moving  but I am making so
progress.  My first friday at the track is coming up and theres a few
things I've been thinking about.  I guess they will run it rin or shine
and right now I have no decent tires other than the spec tires. is ther a good
tire that most use for a rain tire? Also Do es anyone actually keep thier cars
street leagal and drive it on the street? also I am looking at getting a
camcorder to mount inside so I can record everything and hopefully learn a
little more, what modle seems to do the best and hold up. theres so many
choices such as minidvd, hard drive and flash, I know flash works great most of
the time but will the hard drive have issuses with the usage?
