This is only for Advance people who really know how to roll on and balance.
I've done this many times in the rain but always check the draws during pit stops. Not easy!

ok, time for squid question of the day. how do u do it?
is it done by applying the rear brake while u r turning so that rear slides OUT a bit. OR, is it done McCoy's "burnout" style, getting on throttle while applying front brakes so that rear tire spins more than the front. i used to think the first one but then I sw McCoy in Faster and that too looks like backing in:confused1

and while I am at it, in Faster, they refer to something about that it only warms up the surface and not the whole carcass(or was it other way round) wat r the advantages/disadvantages of this surface VS carcass thing?


and last, wat is needed to get a better grip? warming only surface, or warming the WHOLE tire?

thanks!

Either, depends on if you're doing it entering the turn or exiting the turn.

nah, I m not A quality yet. Henry s told me he will lend me his lap timer next time ..but I dont even know if I m even in sub 2s yet at TWS (Texas World Speedway). looking at the number of turns in which I suck, I doubt hahhahaa!!!

I feel encouraged to do it (inspite of Racer X's "u ll be the back marker" comment:icon_bigg ) bcos I have had a couple of CMRA experts say good things, and I happen to respect their judgement more than RacerX's (sorry Ed )
