Line locked well. Started out at the parking lot at work doing donut's...Then left a some strategic stripes on a few local roads...Then went home.

I had tried to burn out my drive and make a left hand turn on my road without stopping spinning then continuing to spin for another hundred feet or so.

I chickened out and gave up after three attempts. It felt too slippery on the curve at the end of my drive and was afraid of my Vette having a close encounter with a tree.

If you want to watch a few of the donuts you either need to stand on your head or turn your computer upside down. I can't figure it out.

Cool stuff Norm, I'd say those tires are definitely finished!

BTW, if you download and install Windows Live Movie Maker you can probably load that mp4 into it and rotate it 180.

Cool Norm...
That's what I call "toastin' em"

FYI: The GoPro camera has a setting in the camera to flip the picture upside down.
After you turn the camera on
Press the silver button on the front of the camera until you see SEt in the LCD window.
Then hit the Shutter button (top button) to toggle through the different settings. Stop when you see either UP or UPd in the window. This is where you tell the camera to shoot rightside up (UP) or upside down (UPd). To switch between UP & UPd, hit the front Silver button to toggle back and forth.
SO, when hanging the camera as we were at VIR you want it to be in the UPd mode. Apparently when you did your burnout video the camera was still in the UPd mode we used at VIR but you must have mounted it rightside up, OR, it went back to UP when you swapped batteries.

Once you've shot the video in the wrong mode, then you have to flip it after the fact as Dan mentioned above.

Your funny, My wife "bitched" about the same thing.... I told her it would acutally help the driveway by filling in the cracks with rubber and would level out the rough spots....Was I correct or fibbing?

My fun is over....The replacement Pilot Sports arrived and are mounted.

Got 32,000 miles out of the old Pilot Sports which included two days at Pocono, two days at NJMP and two days at VIR plus some occasional spirited driving. I did the math and it comes out to .0179 cents per mile per tire. I think that is pretty good for what they went through. They are great looking tires and tower over a twelve ounce can.

Tires look nice !!

For future reference if you let Val, Glenn and me talk you into going to track more often and you're willing to keep a set of track-day wheels around.... before you burn 'em off run 'em down to the cords! At the track you just need rubber on them, not tread.
