Default Bacdrafts on the track

Several members of the Houston Cobra Club visited Texas World Speedways performance driving event this past weekend. The weather was good on Saturday and perfect on Sunday (50* and low humidity). Here are a couple of videos.
First is James in his Backdraft>>>

Pep boys have them. They are made by K source, part #RM010. It clips on to your existing mirror and really helps you see the blind spots on your rear quarters.

Bill, thanks for sharing the video links! We had a great time. I look forward to the next one. For those of you that asked, it is a very fast track. It is 2.9 miles with 15 turns. The driving school there is great to work with.

Good times...

James

Thanks MT, I'm sure the snap on mirror is a great improvement over the standard issue model. It will sure help the old neck not from not having to constantly turn around. I had been looking for a night darkening mirror (I do a fair amount of night driving) that looked close to the original but haven been successful in finding one yet.

Default Night Driving

If you drive at night do yourself a favor, get H.I.D. headlights. One of the best upgrades you'll ever do.

Default Camera and mount

Camera is a Canon ZR 900, external mic is the key. Run the mic down behind the passenger seat/door panel area. Picks up the sound without the wind. Mount is from Ioport racing.

Great vid, love the part where you follow the coupe. Was the camera mount the same for both cars?

Brent, I've been looking at the various H.I.D. bulbs out there. From your experience any suggestions as to where to buy?

These are the ones I just put in my dad's cobra: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=270622692131. They're almost identical to what I put in mine about 3 years ago and love them. You'll want to make sure the ones you get are both high & low beam HID. I opted for the 6000k
