Have you ever tried the cones?

Just watched the video. Boy, that sure was an open course! Nice big venue. If you don't mind a little bit of constructive criticism...

You're turning in pretty late. You need to be turning in before you hit the cone, not as you pass it. You didn't really do much slaloming, but to get the idea of when to turn in, you should be starting to turn for cone #2 just as you pass cone #1.

With all the speed that that track had, there were a couple spots where you could have really used all that energy to get some more rotation, especially at the 180. With a well-placed squeeze of the brakes and some provocation with the wheel while carrying speed, you could have retained more momentum while signifigantly reducing the real estate you covered.

Looked like a lot of fun man! Just trying to pass on a couple things I learned this year...

So Barts, is the cracked windshield some sort of family signature? Both you and you're brother's SI have quite similar cracks. Maybe some sort of iniation you guys do before you let a new car go on track?

"Hey bro, stop!"
"What is it, I have to get in line for my run!"
"Look at your windshield..."
"Holy crap, you're right! Quick, throw a brick at it!"

Thanks. I'll definately keep that in mind. Wiregrass Region (Dothan, AL) is done for the year, but I will be headed to Dixie Region (Bainbridge/Cecil, GA) December 4th. There they are alot more thorough with tech inspection and slaloms, etc. I'll be sure to remember that.

Just for future reference - I NEVER mind constructive criticism. It only makes me better.
