My point about hitting the cone in a way is sort of a backwards way of saying what I was trying to... it's difficult to explain but a catchy way to remember the advice. I guess what I was trying to say is, if you are fretting over having a perfect run and devote your racing strictly to not hitting any cones, then you will not be as creative and flexible on your lines as you should be, therefore costing you a lot in experience and quite possibly lap time. Step out of the comfort zone a little and push past the limit to see where the limit actually is.

I can see where you would disagree with this WeeAsp because that's usually a very bad situation in road racing, but for the most part it's a freebie in auto-x and worst thing that will happen is you come out with a little cone smudge as a battle scar.
Yes, that is a banana in my pocket.
