Submit whatcha got!

Here is Team Phoenix's #86 K-car passing TBR's E36 BMW.

I only did this because Stigdad told me I had to pass your car at least once this weekend.

So I did. :lol:

*Referencing the 2000 version of Gone In 60 Seconds

Hey Tubby! You alright? You ok? Just sit back. You alright? Are you sure? 'Cause...your E36 got out accelerated by a K-car.

*awaits round of applause from Jason :lol:

Seriously though, Tubby, you and your team are class acts. We loved what racing we did manage against you. I still remember you diving below me into 1 and coming out and pulling up behind you and thinking "I might pass Tubby!" but I had to shift into 3rd and we developed a miss between 4100 and 5000rpms and guess where the tach lands when you hit 3rd? :lol:

(P.S. That video was dedicated to the Leinies)

Hilarious!! I love the video! We just need to see more so please post more! Would love the see some video of the deer eyes lighting up under braking in front of a corner.

Enjoyed meeting you, your dad and the Team Phoenix guys. Was a blast and sorry to see your problems with the steering develop into "back on the trailer" status. Congrats on the award today and it was well deserved. Some more development and your car will be fast!

I was using a samsung S85 digital camera monted to a GPS/satelite radio dash mount.

Nothing fancy, set to low res in order to capture 2.75 hours on one 16gb SD card

Will have more video up soon.

I take back everything I've said about the E36... man they're slow. :D

Now I'm going to have to look into these K-cars. Ban them, they're not $500 cars, they have too much power..............

:lol::lol:

Out of slower corners in high rpms in 2nd gear, I could gain on just about any car out there. Pulled on Tubby, almost rear-ended that 5.0L Fox Body, me and the Elemonators split the V8 Bimmer out of turn 3. But when the car hits 3rd gear and falls into the rev-range with the miss, everybody just drives away...

...except Mutt Cutts :lol:

I know what that feels like. We had absolutely no shifting and were stuck in third (maybe 4th) gear. I started to laugh at how many times corner workers would wave blue flags while we rocketed into a corner and passed with amazing brakes, only to immediately loose the position back with no acceleration on exit. It was frustrating to say the least. The workers at 6 and at the start of the main straight (with hills) actually learned and stopped waving the flag.

What happens when you break all sorts of stuff on the car? well take a listen to how awful it sounds limping through the paddock at the end.

Oooh, ouch. So, what broke in that third video? It sounded/looked nasty.

oh, ya know, nohing important. Just the rear Panhard bar that keeps the back suspension in place... Its supposed to be NOT bent!

(it didnt get fixed until after we took the checkered, thats why it was limped in the last video)
