The drag strip is like sniffing glue, it's cheap, it's a decent buzz, it doesn't last long and they are all the same.
Road racing is like China White Heroin, the buzz is stronger, the high lasts for hours, it's extremely addictive and they are all different.
I can't wait for my next
Track fix.

The more the merrier. The only way the practice the line without being on the track is to watch videos of others on track. I am sure you have a few with some really good drivers you could share with us.

Find Your Line at Gingerman









John Buttermore has the best line and is roboticly precise in hitting it. In the Mustang Camaro shoot out for Hot Rod John ran 30 hot laps in each car, if my memory is correct. The difference in the Mustang between his fastest and slowest lap was 1/100th of a second. He was terrible in the Camaro with a full 1/10th of a second difference.

If you do what you are supposed to & people complain, then I guess they should have signed up for a racing school, which non of this is.

DON'T WORRY ABOUT ANYONE OR ANYTHING BUT WHAT THE INSTRUCTOR TELLS YOU. learn your your abilities, the track lines, braking points, etc. SMOOTH IS FAST.
THIS!

You will be among friends, jroc! Nobody's getting in anyone's way.
