More importantly, how did you feel about those runs? Did you leave feeling like you left time on the table, or feeling pretty good about it?
yeah I did have some heavy understear... I was trying to go a little tooo fast for that turn. My third run was the smoothest, I let off in one or two spots where in the other runs I was still in the throttle so I think that is why I kept hitting the second cone of the center slalom. I"m still trying to decide whether to stay in first or continue shifting into second on a lot of these courses.

What do you recommend?

I would shift into second for the last 2.5 sets of cones in the first and last slaloms b/c I'd be hitting the limiter before I reached the 3rd to last, and I have a raised limiter at 7600rpms with Waynes tune...
