  1. These aren't quite as good as the 4.10's post but it should give you an idea for RPM and MPH. These videos focus on the speedometer the entire time. I didn't see the 4.10 videos until after I got to Iraq so I couldn't so any videos similiar to that for comparison.

  2. Havent watched (need to go to church, like NOW) but here is my vote for a STICKY. It will cut down on alot of questions.
  3. Possibly. It really shows the acceleration on some and shows the RPM at steady MPH rates. Still no me vs. other car comparisons you can see though.
  4. Watched videos. Looked good! But what's up with the music? Not my cup of tea. But good vids none the less. :nice:

    That first one looks real good for a daily driver. If you can get any others where you are passing cars or other scenery that would be awesome.
  5. I dunno, just left the radio on.

    It's going to be a while before I am able to get some passing cars or scenery :)
  6. good vid.
  7. We gonna make this sticky like the 4.10's?
  8. Here's a video of my 2000 GT with 3.73 gears I took recently. It is in Germany, btw.

    >> WMV9, 10MB, 02:43min <<

    It includes a small burnout and a donut, too.


  9. Very nice. :nice:
  10. Get some video with other cars around, such as a cruise on the interstate, like Spreadman did and this could definitely be sticky.
  11. Well, it's gonna take me a year since I'm in Iraq. If it stays around that long (the thread) I guess I can post it then.
  12. Any luck with getting the format's fixed and reloaded? I really want to watch the 3rd video. When I try to watch it it says the format is invalid.

  13. We will wait. :flag:
  14. good Sticky! Good Videos!
  15. Yeah, I've been trying to upload them since the first the first time post. It's taking me some time though. They're big files and the network here in Iraq is sketchy.

  16. Hmmmmm....wonder why? :rolleyes:
  17. All videos are uploaded.
  18. Videos 2 3 and 6 don't download completely :(
