Sometimes true, sometimes not...

Last race I was pretty much hitting a wall, I felt like I had the line but my times were stagnant.

Last run I said screw it and went balls out. Tires yelling, engine screaming, and whaddya know, 2 seconds came off my time....

You're right though, smoother is faster, but it's all about finding the line, keeping the engine in the sweet spot and LOOKING AHEAD!!!


-To the CAI question, yes, I would just swap back to the stock airbox before each race, now I just leave the thing modded and run in DSP...
