That thing is wicked, so much torque, killer breaks however i did have problems upshifting, i had to reposition my foot all the time after the chicane and into the front straight but i am a noob and after 10 months of not riding at all i gotta start saving for one lol. After i pay ALLLLLL the freaking hospital bills, many months to come.

You are not kidding

I observed nothing of real importance to comment on, and nothing really in the video that was too bad at all for someone of your experience. I'd say you were right on track and making good progress

Thank you, I'm looking forward to my 5th TD!

Now, a faster way around the track- we can work on that, here's some observations:

You could brake a lot later and less- you were early apexing almost every time in turn three, you can also carry a lot more speed in three, four, six, especially seven, and the "kink" before the chicane (I call that a mid-corner adjustment, because it really doesn't warrant rolling off the throttle at all, it's a deceiving looking corner with the pavement on camber then flat). Each of those corners you broke too much and too early to get through there really fast, it seemed like it ruined your rythym, and you tried to fix that by shot-gunning out and on the straights.

Your body position was decent, you could put your "chin over fist" a bit more, but that will come with time. Try not to fidget or adjust yourself on the seat either- when you commit to the corner, you should be set.

As I observed, you did quite well, and the things I mentioned will come pretty naturally as you get more seat time. Instruction doesn't hurt either!

Good vid btw...
That is very helpful information. THANK YOU!
