My best run < 1,000 points by a lot. First time with the camera mount I made. I wanted to see what I was doing, but can't see the course at all. Going to have to move it up.

...Damn. Dude, Ed - that was some bloody fantastic smooth steering! I'm nowhere *NEAR* that smooth - seriously, after watching your video and then looking at mine, it looks like I'm jerking the wheel like a madman! Fantastic car control, sir.

And Chris: Congrats, man! Well done. Helluva run. By the way - it looked like you guys were getting an awful lot of rear-right tire-rub - just happened to spot it with every run as you went through the final sector, since I was working there. Other than that, though, kick ass.

Chris, I love timelapse videos. When you get a chance can you post your run in real time though? Thanks!

You simply must search for YouTube videos from the year Chris won Nationals in the EoD. I like to look at videos to see what the courses looked like, and I am not exagerrating here, you would swear it was a different course between Chris's videos and the guy who won DP's videos. D stinkin' Prepared! Not H stock backmarker or something, the DP champion! And it doesn't even look like the same course! Nuts.

Nice driving, Chris! Duh...

Thanks Devin. Hands working better than brain and feet, I'm afraid.

Not to take anything away from Chris's driving, but it's probably just a result of my shaky camera mount and the difference in the camera's height/perspective:
