    Mego Race footage?

    I know several vids were shot, but have not seen any uploaded. Was it too dark to see or are the being edited down? This was, without doubt, the funniest moment of the weekend.
    I almost had a psychic girlfriend but she dumped me before we met.

    If anyone here believes in psychokinesis, please raise my hand.

    I tried to shoot a couple, particularly the one I was in, but it was so dark, there wasn't much to see.
    Expectation is the death of discovery.

      I have one but I did it with my phone and didn't follow the cars, so you can't see much.

        I took video from the starting line. It's about 30 min but it moves pretty fast between heats. Kind of dark but you can see the cars move down the track and hear the action called by Hulk.

        Thing is my camara records in quicktime format. I had to download the software before watch stuff. Not srue if it needs to be converted to something like windows media or not.

        Other thing is I don't have the abiltiy to upload it.
        Better late than never.....

          I know GarageSale James took a bunch of video again, so I am guessing he will have something to show. It's near impossible to get everything organized and enough contestants to show up before the sun has set, so unless we get lights for the "track", it'll probably never be a good video event, but the live viewers can see pretty well.

            The races were amazing this year. Paul and Rose really organized it well. I'm gonna try to get it up this weekend, I think the footage is pretty good.

              Sorry for the long wait... I've been slammed since I got back. The real delay, though, was with me thinking I'd sit down and do some editing of the footage and whatnot. I decided raw footage was better than waiting, like, 6 months to get something out to the community.

              So, go over to my youtube channel and take a look at the interviews and the Mego Racers stuff (right now the racers are still loading, but they should be finished within the hour).

              Once again, my apologies!

                  Mike - I think I blocked you on my Youtube channel... do you have th WH Women website? I saw that on there and suddenly thought it was some kinda p*rn* deal or something, but figured out it wasn't... hope I didn't block you from seeing the videos!

                    Nope, I can see 'em. Yeah, that's mine. I only used that because everytime I get a notification about something, it goes right to my phone. So it's easier
                    for me to keep up with things. Sorry I should have mentioned the account. Edit: I'll have stay closer to next time instad of being in the balcony. I didn't even know I won that initial race. Whoops!

                      Nice job James. I think the night time video worked fine.

                            Now there's an idea. In addition to the drag race, we should get two remote controlled cars and run a Nascar race - one lap around the parking lot. Then each participant can test their skill at remotely controlling the car with their figure in it.
