Technical help

OK, OK, I'm a caveman. I still use a flip phone. Recently a friend sent me a file of me doing a burnout at cars and coffee, but it's on instagram... So I'm SOL.

Is there anyway to convert this file:

https://www.instagram.com/p/BA-dZOoDBl_/

to something I can see on a PC?

And yes, I'm still a troglodyte, I'm using Windows Vista.

None...yet. I sold the track tires/wheels, those in the vid are Michelin Super Sports, for the street. I bought a pair of 19x12" reproduction wheels and Nitto NT05R's for the dragstrip.

At the rate I'm racking up miles (4,500 a year, because of multiple vehicles) these should last a good while.

Smart man to buy an extra set. I figured those stock tires would be gone by now with the couple of track days plus your *cough* aggressive *cough* driving...

Hey Vince how's it going?



It's interesting to compare this car with my C6Z. At the dragstrip I went quicker in the quarter mile, but with a slower 60', and 3 less mph, and it weighs 300 pounds heavier.

There are so many torque management issues, presumably to protect the clutch. When you go full throttle at the launch, the ECM doesn't give the engine full throttle for over a half second. Makes it hard to get a good 60'.

Doing good Wayne. Wish I got to see you in person at the track. I'm sure you are giving it hell. You went from a car with brute power to a computer controlled and managed ecosystem there, I'm sure it will take a while to figure out how to get the best out of it. Sure is a good looking car.
