Parallax Racing 7/1/12 CCS BHF GTU Expert Race Video

Check out the Parallax Racing Facebook page to watch the video from the Expert GTU race. Got a 2nd place finish with Ricky in my sights at the end (though the video had to be cut short so I could upload it to YouTube).

You got me with lapped riders in front coming into T1. Nice Job! It's good to watch myself in there. I seldom see the that perspective. Ortaga was riding erratically... after he got around me he held me up and I coulnt get around him. I wouldn't mind getting the full rez video at some point in the future. You took all the lapped riders and me in one pass! Oh.. and I have the same race on video. didnt that race get cut short due to all the crashes?

Atta Boy Man - What kind of mount were you running for the Cam? - I like that angle

I'm using a Contour Roam camera with a regular stick-on mount near the front right of my fairing. In my opinion, these cameras are WAY better than the Go Pros. Because of their design and rotating camera lens, you can put them in a lot of different places without looking hideous like the boxy Go Pros. Also I'm pretty happy with the video and sound quality. Maybe not as good as the GP's, but unless you demand professional-quality HD filming, these Contours deliver.

LOL...still not going as fast as I'd like but we're making progress...LOL

All the R6 guys out there crack me up...They think removing the baffle/funnel on the airfilter will give them an advantage and or more power....
It makes less power when you remove the funnel...(we tested it). so if you take it off, not only are you making less power, you're illegal, and run the risk of being DQ'd....LOL

Anyways, nice job yourself. Talk to you soon and I gotta check out my crash video....(that crash was brake related)
