thats what i was saying in my post #57. if you have good suspension and you can hold the gas all the way through the trasiton off the banking into 1. if you brake you fk the whole thing up. you can get on the gas sooner in 2 and have the bike stood up early for a faster exit drive out of the turn. if its done right. it has a sling shot feel to it.

so yeah, i'm gonna have to agree with Tom and say the fastest line would be to dive down and fly smooth.
+1...

i cornerworked for cmra two years ago in t1 & t1a...

i remember watching him come around everytime like this:

his line off the banking is very high and deep...

is anybody reading my posts??? yall r repeating the same stuff over an over. the trick to the whole turn to be REAL fast is (carry as much speed as possible, dive in at the last second, and unless your on a motogp machine....hold the frickin throttle through the transition.) that keeps your speed way up and with the throttle on too, your suspension doesnt lurch near as bad which can upset the bike. then let off right after everything settles and start setting up ypur line for turn 2. i almost neeeever get past in turn 1 or 2. i think there are only 20 guys that can do it in CMRA if even that many. And they are top experts. Patrick will tell you the same thing. go ask him about the turn. i learned that turn from being towed by mike sanchez

im very sure this thread is a rerun. but i feel like the whole key is to handle the transition properly. and nobody seems to stress that enough. sorry i just didnt think anybody was paying attention to me

im with u. though i drop to 5 right after the transition so i have more power at the wheel for a better drive outta 2. then i drop to 4 for turn 3 and wrap that out till i hit turn 6. then i up 1 gear and never let off the throttle till i come over the hill.

ps depending on what line i take through 6..... i get the bike stood up fast as possible and fan the clutch to get everybit of power for a strong drive outta the turn.

if you ever let off the throttle on the back side or turn seven... you never going to be fast. dont try it unless you have good life insurance.

if i get really comfortable on my rear brake. im going to pratice sliding the rear at high speeds. so i can slide into turn 3. i want to get the bike stood up earlier comming out, and use all the power in 4 gear as i fan the clutch...and tap the rear break to keep the nose down as i go over wheelie hill. a good example would be john hanner's myspace vid on his page. except he waves to the camera while he does it. :notworthy
