OK what's the trick

I've been to several trackdays and have yet to drag a knee.
I'm just starting to feel comfortable with my body positioning and still no scuffs.
Do I need to pick up more speed?
Do I need to hang my a$$ competely off the seat?

The only time I drug a knee was at lunch in slacks.
Maybe I'm gun shy like David Carr now :eh:

It will happen when it needs to. The fact is, you drag your knee less as you get faster. Strange but true.

He is already getting faster. After Saturday his body position was on point. Now he just needs to trust his tires and start bring up the pace.
