By happenstance I ended up shooting video of an MG Red betting punished at 150F track temp.
Odenthal Racing GoPro mount wasn’t in the budget, so a plain ole GoPro mount (with tether) suck the top of the 206 was the next best option.
Next time around I’ll do a more focused effort.
For the data overlay, I used:
A Gopro Hero 8 (Stuck to the 206)
RaceBox.Pro mini for the data acquisition (25Hz GPS + G Sensor, velcro’d on floor tray)
RaceChrono’s iPhone app in my pocket to bring it all together.
Around 90 with a “feels like” in the 100’s. We were under a head (Heat!!!) advisory.
Seems like mediums. How did they feel? Greasy?
Also, your ice karts sounded strong in that video. I would be happy for rentals with grunt like that.
460cc will do that. They don’t feel far off a KA to be honest.
206 on pavement last weekend top speed was 47/48. Rental speed on ice was 43. I’d say we could touch 50 with some changes, but that’s a tad spicy for the public.
On the MG tires, more grip than my body was happy with, they did grease up a good bit towards the end of that race but alas the camera started pointing down.
I swapped out the Tillet MS seat for a used deep seat. It looks noobish and ridiculous, it’s a pain to get in and out of. But damn It’s supportive.
Is that because they just legalized recreational marijuana in Minnesota?
Ah if only we were in the 90s here. It’s actually going to be a cool week here being under 90 at 4am. Ignoring the complaining, cool shot! I really want to build a DIY thermal sensor for tire testing. I think a couple people here have posted a project or two doing so.
Yeah they are heavenly. The fact that it wraps around is kind of a game changer.
Yay for Minnesota stoners!
Hey, be careful out there!
For the heat I bought a couple of 1gal water jugs, chugged a few oz then added this powder and some ice. It’s sugar free and has 10g of protein per 12oz.
I used about 10 scoops. It’s a bit messy, but worked a treat.
Bonus: It’s blue, so people will think you’re drinking washer fluid.
This isn’t fully mixed but you get the idea
