What were you running consistently on your lap times? The lap time gives you an average right? Anyhow way to to go on the 49! You will be haulin in no time! Your a born racer?

its cool dawg, i got a good view of it... you see what you get when you try to go faster than me now.....

you were looking good out there until that. i heard today from a little bird "you have to go slow before you can go fast, but when you start going fast, you will go alot faster... but first you have to go slow." made no sense to me, but i'm sure someone can chime in.

That only applies to us mere mortals. Would be hard for anyone with a big a ego as yours.

It's pretty simple really. Slow down, learn the track, brake markers, racing line to where it's second nature then start to increase speed in small increments. If your riding past your comfort level, then your skills will likely not improve because your too focused on trying to keep from wrecking.

I did 4 track days in C group when I started out. Why? Because I took my time learning and left my EGO at the door.
4 years later, no crashes. Not even a run off and I can keep up with the front runners in B group.
