In car Racing video DRIFTING IS FAAAAAST TOO!!!

Here is a in car shot of my best run at the last autocross in Austin, TX. The tire setup I have makes the car oversteer really bad, so dont make fun of the "cowboy up" fish tails.

I still lost to an RX-8 because my setup, I have 340 treadwear, he had 30. But I still got .3 seconds away on STREET TIRES!

From that video you missed the Apex 43 seconds into it which would have cost you time going into the very short straight.

yeah, Ive been having trouble with the front bushings on my car. When I go for any heavy braking zone, the whole chassis skips ahead of where I want to be..... It pisses me off (never get a 350z towed from the front without towhook)

I guess you gotta get the suspension laser aligned to make sure the geometry is correct and that the camber/castor/KPI is set right. Either that or focus on how you can turn the car in on hard braking corners, learn to trail brake and ease off on the brake when steering in. Also get someone filming you so you can see how the car behaves during the run and what you could be doing wrong. I might be talking BS but it may help you.
