I remember Buck taught me this at the track, and he is correct!

I'm exactly the same way CerealKiller and I dont know why.. I'm getting better on my left so the wear is about a cm from the edge on the right and 2 on the left but the difference used to be real noticeable. I have always been way more comfortable turning in on rights vs. lefts.. good and interesting post.
