Looks like NASA is going to use the CCW direction. Last weekend we raced the CW direction and I think it is much better flow and enjoyed it more. I'll probably skip this event, give my wallet a rest for a few weeks. Have fun and stay safe out there! (Here's hoping you have great weather too!!) :thumbsup:

I just knew you were going to eat this stuff up!!!
I think this hobby is a great fit for you!

I know it fits me like a glove... so well in fact... that it's causing some minor wallet issues!!! LOL!

Speaking of fitting...
"Does this track make me look slow?".... LOL!

Here is a nice little video of my last session at MSR Cresson. Had a great time and I really love that track, not sure it loved me back though.

Lol, you are definitely improving the driving skills :thumbsup: I pulled a similar maneuver as the ending at TWS turn 3. Didn't get on the gas quick enough to get weight to the back. :eek:

Looking good Barry!!

The best way to learn car control is to lose it(or almost lose it) and try to catch it.

It's just a matter of practice.

The weight transferred to the front wheels when you got off the gas going into the turn and it looks like you need to let the car track out more on the exit of that turn. Your car rotates early and on that turn stay in the gas (before, during and after the turn) and do not let up.
