all that and sticker on a vette is quite a bit more than a neon...

ya my coasting is what hurt me for sure. I entered corners way too fast for how slick the track was and while the car rotated ok it would have been even better had i been braking.

which is why brad beat my best time by 1.8 seconds...

zactly.

its hard to define that balance between when a corner is better of coasted. (mostly corners that lead right into another corner) so that the car has time to "take a set" before changing direction. and corners where you're better off pushing to the last instant then throwing the car into the corner.

this track definitely seemed more suited to brake stabs before/during and maximum velocity to the last second.

also we really need a data logger so all of us can compare driving styles/techniques.

it'd be awesome to have 2 identically prepped cars with 2 drivers each and a data logger to compare inputs of all 4 people.

I think our driving would improve rapidly in a situation like that.

Just downloaded a new app for next race that timmeh showed me. There is a droid equivilant but I forget the name.. Will record GPS locations as well as all the G forces and yaw and stuff of that nature. And then we can use that and a video from the go-pro and sync up overlays of the data to the video.


Will try it out with the BMW at Grattan

Lol.. no. Plan is to buy car to drive.. and drive it.. not race it... But I could be convinced to mod it to limits of DS..... since that's like sway bar and shocks

I thought the 328 was slighly larger.. hence the 28 > 25.. but I'm also kinda dumb on that note
