Your 180 technique is about what I found to be the fastest way around.I will try to come in wider and go out narrow. Yea,that 360 is a toughy.It's actually more like a 400 as you enter at 6 oclock,pivot around and depart at 9 oclock toward the next gate.I read the article and will try it more like a decreasing radius rather than a 180.I hope to have my Torsen in and some Hoosier A6's on before the next event.What is your feeling on running a little bit wider tire up front?I'm thinking 245/35/18's in front and 225/40/18" out back,as there does not seem to be much going on back there anyway.Kind of like a big rudder....
