Screw passing on the outside..... especially with noobs.... you will get to know the dirt real good that way.

I agree... I'd do B. You'll get to see faster riders, you'll learn from their lines and you're already doing 2:12's so that's a normal B group pace.

It's going to be a fairly quick group because it's right before a race... but think of it as a learning experience.

I think it's better to be the 'slow' guy around better riders than to be the 'fast' guy around slow riders... besides, I'm not pushing anymore so I'll just be doing 2:08 - 2:10's probably.

Re: July 29th at TWS (Texas World Speedway)...

as steve said.. the 29th is right before race weekend so it will be a fast paced group. I dont yet know if I am gonna run A or B group but if you're caught being the slow one around the track they may consider moving you to C. I am saying this because I have seen it happen. If you think you'd feel good in B then go for it, otherwise C would be your bet. just my opinion. :dontknow:

as long as you don't panic mid corner and can adjust your lines you should be ok...

no matter what you hear... if you're riding in 'b' group on a friday before cmra weekend and your times are > 2:05's you will get stuffed... i fricken guarantee it... the pace is seriously raised...

and you will hear people say a bazillion times, 'just hold your line'... but i can tell you... PLENTY of times out there - if i would have held my line BAMO!...

so you also have to be able to change your line - MID CORNER... if you can do both safely... sure... step on up man...

i'm sure you'll like the faster pace... :
