a lot of cars were still drag starting it and just whipping around it was pretty sweet how percise they were.. must take years. makes sense what you're saying.

Sometimes you can get an instructor-type to ride along to get one-on-one input. It also says a lot that you realize seat-time is the most important thing now. Good luck!
sweet! my first run was a prime example of over-exuberance but i calmed down and tried to get perfect lines. i really need to work on looking ahead. i can only look 2 cones ahead haha. it will get better.
