Very Cool camera mount location. I like the fact that there is none of the typical wind buffeting noise either.

alot of people use hoosiers. r6 i think. i know that red boxster infront of me was running kuhmo 710s and he was solid as a rock.

the best part about the quality is that it wasnt even in 1080P!!! ill save that for next time (or my parade lap at laguna seca for lemans )

The Gopro is a great camera for this. I like the wheel view too.

I just got a GoPro Hero and use it for when I go quading: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NO0fts11E3g

When I'm autocrossing, I use MaxQData. Here's a run from 2009 SCCA Nationals:

I use the MaxQData because it has useful information, check out a video with data overlay: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ys78llwQnA

Launch hard-you can cover the first 100 feet half a second quicker than most other cars if you can get a good launch. On a grippy surface I can launch at up to 5000 rpm without much wheelspin. I experimented with launch and shift rpms and the higher you can launch without the tires going up in smoke, the quicker you will be. Shifting just before redline is quicker, too. I have a base 2004 Boxster so things may be different for an S.

i have a base 01. so i think ill be able to use your advice for sure. what do you think about shifting. usually i keep it in second... should i downshift into first? cuz that can be really tricky.
