I recently got me a little camcorder(Flip Ultra HD) and a window mount and thought I would do a few in-cab video clips and post them up. It kinda gives a different perspective so I thought some might find them intersting. I did some at the dragstrip sorta showing the issues I've been having getting launched. The problem I have is I either bog when the rpms are low or spin bad when the rpms go up. Thats when I start getting into to my power band. This is using MT ET streets and I'm not dumping it, just a slight pop get moving, then slip it the rest of the way. Obviously I'm not doing it right since I'm still in the low 14's. Unfortunately my crappy limited slip doesn't allow me more aggressive launches. That will change by this summer. Anyway, also did a montage of normal takeoffs and then a montage of aggressive takes offs, afterwards driving through some twisty roads. This little camera takes pretty good HD quality videos, unfortunately it doesn't have image stabilization, so some of the clips get jittery at times. I have a few ideas to improve that later. They don't look as good on Youtube, but they are ok, plus its gives you options for desired video size. Here they are---
Video 1-This is a recent clip of me at the strip trying to get a good run. On this one I launched about 1800rpms. I hooked good, but bogged bad. Only got like a 14.4 on this run.---

Video 2-This one done on the same night. However I launched about 2500rpms. I spun all the way to 45-50mph. And this is WITH new ET Streets. And yes I warmed them up before. Only posted the first half of this run.---

Video 3-Just a little montage of me driving around heading out to the country. A few takeffs(and accidental tire chips) just to show the way my engine/exhaust sounds putting around with my cams---

Video 4-This is a montage I did out in the country with some aggressive take offs and playing on some country roads. Also, I tried to keep the speeds moderate by staying in third gear and always slowed down when other cars neared. Tried to keep it as safe and legal as possible but still have a little fun. I also didn't push it too hard in the corners, knowing that even though our trucks handle pretty good for trucks, but they still weigh 4000+lbs and sit fairly high.

Just the factory SE one-3.54 with electonic(brake applying) anti-slip. Plans are to upgrade this summer with Trutrac and 4.10 gears.
