and at 1:07 it seems you abrupty straightened out (maybe there was a cone i couldnt see) but a more gradual straitening of the wheel earlier allows a driver to get on the gas sooner. this is accomplished by looking way ahead. as you enter a sweeper like that, you have to already be looking at your exit cone, so that your set up to go on the next straight away.
Thank you, I'll try and work on that.. next event is the 16th so hopefully I can improve on looking further ahead and using more of the track like EH6TunerDaniel said...
