I read ya, I'd like to get there this year but we'll see. I will be branching out a bit more and trying new tracks. I've done TWS (Texas World Speedway) like 8 times so I want to do some more. I did Cresson last year clockwise and want to try it counter clockwise this year. I'll also be doing Oak Hill next week. I really want to do MSR Houston but I'm hesitant to go outside of LSTD.

I was talking to Scott D and he was telling me about footage he saw of me and it looked like I was overloading my suspension through the chicane. Which sucks cause I think I need to upgrade my suspension now. It's already been set up by Pat and that made a huge difference... so I'm not sure if he can work on the stock suspension anymore. I can't imagine I'm pushing it to it limits yet.

I have watched your footage as well. I can comment on a couple of your line choices and I would not be suprised about the suspension as well. You will be suprised how easy a little bump will bottom you out, stand you up and send you to the dirt. Happened 2 me twice last year. Once at Cresson and once at TWS (Texas World Speedway). Luckily I was able to back off and recover before going off.

Oh, you working out and putting on some size will chance up all your suspension dynamics too. Don't forget about that this season.

GSXR-750 is what he set the lap record on I believe. He has a school you can take with RideSmart or you can take private lessons for a little more. It is well worth it. I dropped 7 seconds during his class.

You will want to get to know the track before you jump into one of those classes though.
