    This is my project, I am going to be taking a variety of video's using my Go Pro driving my FiST on mountain roads. The goal is to do this every week but it may be every other week depending on my school work from college. This is my first Video and dealing with editing. I do all my editing from my phone and just refuse to buy a computer since my phone is supposed to replace everything. The drivers side wheel cam is my GoPro while the passenger side is my friends $100 camera. Found out while editing the wind noise was much less on the GoPro but still there.

    If you have any advice on audio recording that would be great. Or even how to reduce the wind noise from my GoPro. I even used the sealed cover and still got a ton on wind noise. Hope you enjoy!



    P.S. What is the code to make it play on the forums instead of posting a link?
    Edit: Cancel that last thought I guess it does it by itself :)

    What intake is that? Spool sounds amazing! Is this stage 3?

    I have an Injen intake that has been routed to the fender under the driver light. Still on a stock tune but I have changed the intercooler for a mishimoto z line and deleted the muffler. Still stock tires. Although I need to get a new set (10,000 miles) after my trip to octane academy on Monday.

    I'm jealous! Octane sounds sweet. I need a full intake...sounds amazing. The Cobb Accessport is great for removing the limiters on 1st and second. Love it. I'm just missing the intake.

    In front of the intercooler right in the middle. Attached to the bumper of course using the 3m curved attachment.

    I really cant wait for octane I am so excited! I decided I am going to wait on tuning the car till after I go through 36,000 miles. Which shouldnt be very long at all.

    On my way to Octane Academy. Should get some great video and I cant wait to test my new camera equipment out. Then when I get back I get to test out my new tires (hankooks rs3 215/45/17), sway bars (eibach), and go get a strut bar and underbrace from pierce motorsports.

    Rs3s are a good tire. Let me know when your heading up. If I'm free ID like to cruise with and see what they got.I was looking at the new Cobb sway bars as well.

    I recognize that Lyons Valley Rd. in the first video. That's close to where I live. It's a really, really twisty road that is a peg dragger even on a medium size motorcycle, and cruiser type bikes don't really like it all that much because of that twistyness. Go left, right, or straight from that intersection where you stopped are equally great driving roads and it's where I like to drive on my way home from work sometimes. Great to drive it vicariously!

    Thank you, Nice to meet another member that in the San Diego area! I like that road for testing my suspension as there are slow turns, humps, one jump, and a few high speed corners. I need to finish editing all the video from the Octane Academy (I have over 6 hours of video!) I will also say since my tire and sway bar upgrade, going on Lyons valley, I can do turns about 10 miles an hour faster with no issues of losing grip. Again I do these drives either late at night or during the week day around 11 when there is less of a chance of people being around I also have a friend ahead of me to scout if there are any hazards to deal.

    Another really twisty road to drive nearby is Lawson Valley Rd., with about 100 turns in five miles. I used to live down there and commonly wore out three sets of tires a year on my motorcycle, with the sides of the tires going bald while the middle had plenty of rubber. Great fun!

    If you drive that road, be sure to stay on your side of the center. Most of the turns are blind, and there are a lot of wanna-be racers and just plain incompetent fools who drive over the centerline around corners. I've seen a fair number of cars over the side and down the canyons.

    Just got some chassis bracing from Pierce Motorsports. 6 point for the win! This should increase the handling feel and fun factor of our ST's! Translation, more exciting videos!

    Awesome! Looks great. How much did it end up costing you?

    Aftter October the 6 point will be $350ish with shipping. Also the strut bar will be $165ish with shipping. Speaking of that here are some pics of that too!

    Update: I just got my new computer to help make these videos in better quality and faster. Expect to see some new videos popping up in a week. I have a 2 part video that includes both asphalt and dirt. Woot! Progress is being made.

    Well things are moving faster than I anticipated as it is much easier to edit video's with a proper computer rather then using a phone. Hope everyone enjoys this Video :)

    So how do those street tires feel on the dirt? Pretty lack luster in the grip department I imagine.
