RC Circuit Oahu is a small circuit, but what it lacks in speed, it makes up for in character. I met up with Allen Lorenzo for a look at some of Kanagawa's tracks.
Allen is still an RC beginner, but he is not a beginner with an SLR. 5 seconds after picking up my camera, these images came out.
In this shot, you can see the mini-dv camera I am trying.
It's USB port slightly visible through the window but it was pointed in the wrong direction... more experimentation required.
The 86 has ground clearance like you wouldn't believe. Got Stance? I love it.
Some people want that crisp image... I don't. I love these slow shutter speed shots.
I noticed some of my wing is missing in this shot. The 86 overhang is so short, you always hit the wing on something. "crack-a-lackin"
Typical posed shot. Awesome!
This next sequence is in the small sweeper, there's all sorts of cool in this section of the track.
Foliage, barriers, siding, drink machines, semi-naked women ...
WTF? Semi-Naked Women! better put on a show!
Two laps, Two Shots.
I love these shots at 1/20 second exposure. with focus on the OK! Okamoto Logo!
But these at 1/10 sec will be desktops.
Cross the line.
I picked up some company in the early morning too. It was fun!
Front or Back, I don't care these days.
But at a new circuit I prefer to follow for a while.
It's pretty hard to get serious side by side time at Oahu. The longer of the short sections are very tight.
Thanks to the guys here. This 180SX runs a DIB chassis with about 1.8 CS.
Oahu is definitely NOT a circuit for the beginner though. You'd want to be on your game to come here or in need of some tight practice.
Yes we do. Thanks for the hospitality.
