I think the issue at hand is everyone is trying to get YouTube rich. In order to generate revenue, not only do you have to get the clicks, but you also have to have certain lengths to drive ads.

You have to get A LOT of views to even make it worthwhile and I think many fall off quickly, realizing it's not worth the time. But, there's another "waiting in line" to try their turn. Vicious cycle.

Question Nick. I've noticed more and more lately, about 30 sec +- into a video it will shut off and you have to click to restart. Is that a built in feature from the creator to double up on clicks/views or just a glitch?
Anyone else noticing this?

Dude in the Z was doing hella short pulls
He's cutting the race short because the A8 in the ZR1/Z06 sucks when it shifts into 5th gear @125mph!. So he starts the run at a slower speed then runs to the top of 4th the lets out!! You can hear the ZR1 tranny act up when it shifts into 5th gear. all the C7s have the tragic 4/5 shift that gets worse as you add power....any car youre racing will start to pull back you after get into 5th gear...

His 5th gear is actually shot, that is what you are hearing. It is going in to get rebuilt by LMR once he gets his C6 ZR1 back from them.

What was up with the GT500 shifting into that last gear before the end runs and then within like a half a second shifting up again and you can hear the revs drop off entirely. Unless that is the ZR1 I'm hearing but it sounded like it was the GT500.

That was the ZR1. Fifth gear is shot.

Wow, that's crazy. Is that like a torque management thing or something different?
The '18+ Mustangs with the 10R80 transmission have that 6-7 shift @123 mph. Only in paddle shift mode. I think it Normal mode it does not happen.

I keep hearing that...not sure how youtube expects to stay relevant when you have 20 minute videos that could literally be less than a minute long. I know it's all about AD revenue but when people get tired of that OR another Youtube site pops up, it will be too late in the game to fix anything. I would prefer to have great content and pay a small fee to youtube every month, than have a bunch of guys in tank tops and sunglasses acting like models...and then making a car video.
Agreed, but I'm cheap and would pay for the service either. I'd just do without. I spend very little time on YT.

A couple buddies and I have a channel. I don't shoot much, but I know my one buddy makes them decently long to get the ads in. I just shot one that will wind up being 5 minutes or so. Had to rip out the fuel tank on my Deere.

Honestly, I have no idea. I haven't noticed it on any of our videos and that's all I really watch. My guess is glitch or your hillbilly internet.
.....and I bet you you know one of those individuals desperately trying to work his way up the ladder.
I know a few. It's a time consuming effort and a lot of work. Then, you get stupid videos with minimal effort get millions of views.

Doing it for the fun and passion is one thing. Doing it to make money is another. The biggest thing we would really like to get out of ours is product sponsors. Companies that see we get traffic, so they send us their gizmo to review and market. We'll never be able to quit our day job, but some free tractor stuff is a win!
