So it was yours and Jim's 1st time at TWS (Texas World Speedway). That's one of the draw backs for the price we gladly paid. No instructors to tell you when your off line.

Next time ya'll go, even if I don't ride I'll bring my computer and critique your lines from the video. I only had 2 days of riding on this course with ridesmart, but after watching the video of Whoop and Cdill. I remember a lot about what the instructors taught. And I how I tweeked there lines to fit my style. Which is I usually have a little wider/later entry than the really fast people or what the instructors teach. And I definitely recalled my lines after a couple of sessions. And it felt good.

I'll get you within a couple of feet in most places anyway. Then it'll be up to you to stay there.

Edit:
Scratch all that .......... do a search on utube for Ty Howard line building at TWS (Texas World Speedway). He video'd the classroom time with Ride Smart.

i love the videos with whoop, cdill, ty, and some other fast guys on youtube. I started paying attention to where they are downshiting and what not as well so i really want to try some things the next track day. those videos do help out a lot if you want to get faster.
