    Well, I'm right, who actually drives their car to an event like this anyway? I would be too afraid that if something breaks I would be screwed. I usually trailer my cars to track events that are an hour away. I guess I do not understand people making a big deal about shipping their car or hauling it across the country to an event, I do it all the timeand so do a lot of people.
    It's a matter of understanding the economic climate and that not everyone has the means to ship their car across the country to play around. It's a luxury.

    I agree, a lot of people do it.

    Maybe renting out Go Pros might be a good idea as well?

    I will have my laptop so anyone is welcome to give me their SD card at the event to edit the vids and put them up.

    Going to hit up Famoso drags Feb 9th. If the trans survives I'll race the white 135i. If trans dies then I'll just runway race our F30 335 and help customers with their tuning, etc.

    I understand not everyone has the means but for a treat once a year, kind of like a little vacation. I have a lot of friends that are not loaded with cash but they're car guys and manage to get their cars to events and shows all over the country. A group of my friends do M fest in Vegas, thats 1700 miles away. If there is a will there is a way, and the guy that I responded to has a E60 M5 in his sig so he can't be hurting financially I would guess.

    Live stream would be epic. You just gotta have like two guys recording on a tripod each run. One from the beggining of the roll cones to see if if anyone got a jump or started first etc. and another at the end of the cones to see who finishes if it's close. Obviously both will be recording the race the whole time as well.

    Yes, two guys definitely. Start, and finish. Maybe middle?

    Livestream (http://new.livestream.com/) is becoming the internet news blogger's best friend, if you buy their broadcaster module (http://store.livestream.com/products...am-broadcaster), you'd be able to stream video for anyone who wants to watch using GoPros or handheld cams.

    The logistics of a livestream could get difficult tho

    In all seriousness sorry I won't be there. I have a small sailing yacht in Sardina which needs some TLC.

    joe - keep me up dated on the east coast events if you manage to pull off.

    So I use my phone as the tether, that's fine. But then the problem arises of having two of those plus two tethers.
