i don't go by the cones or the x's either... i use the track itself... my position... and my speed... then adjust to where i want to be at the exit... (typically i like to go in deep, flick it and cut it in tight...)

Or where your tires let you exit........ that was at the edge of the track out of T2 last time I was there and pushed a little to hard on my shitty D208 tires.

"Oh please let this tire hook up... oh please let this tire hook up..." I swear somebody was screaming htis in my head.

Re: How are you getting to the track?

That is strange.... I don't remember getting headshake all that bad.... once on wheelie hill and also coming down in a bad spot into T1. Have you checked you bearings and all that good stuff? everything is nice and snug?

LOL! Syd has only been on the track but like 3 times... I think he needs a little more drilling himself. As for the Xs... USE THEM!!! they were set out there by Ty howard and for those who know who he is he's one fast . They are set in spots where your would use them if you were really haulin . I have talked to CMRA people that say they use them themselves and after a while u kinda get into rhythm and know where they are and dont really have to look at them, but that doesnt mean you're not using them. You can even ask the instuctors form the school, they will all tell u to use them. That and the cones, they are out there for a reason, not just for beginners. I run in the A group and I still use them myself, even though I already know where they are, they come handy sometimes... If I was runnin in group 2 w/u guys I wouldn't mind showin u guys that want some lines and giving u some tips. Andy (coonassme) followed me through the track a while back when he first started and he said he made improvement when he followed me and saw what I was doing. Following someone that knows what they're doin definitely helps! right:
