I usually stay in 2nd in most of courses... sometime I downshift in 1st in really tight hairpin otherwise I stay in 2nd. Last course I did had a very fast quatermile long stretch with distanced slalom, I put it in third on my last run, arrived at the hairpin maybe 10-12mph faster than the other runs and entered the hairpin wayyy to fast.. lost all the gains I did with understeer! I miss RWD in these situations!
