This is a pretty cool short article on how data acquisition and video taping can help drastically in being able to perfect your chassis for any motorsport. The example is drifting, but this will work for everything! It will also help find driver errors that can be improved. Definitely a good read.

It would make for some sweet youtube videos too! Ha ha

That's badass for sure. Just wish it was a little more informative as pertaining to "how I can improve my own setup to better suit my needs". Definitely sweet though. :)

Yeah, I run a MaxQData...

PS: We hit 1.48G Lat per side w/ a truck... Drifting still isn't motorsport. It's like olympic figure skating with a car.

Hoosier's tend to help do that :)
