  1. thanks for sharing very helpful!
  2. there's one out of the way. Thanks.
  3. I have driven a number of laps at MSRH in both directions. Unfortunately, I think it's ingrained into me a "fixed" way of driving the track. I wonder if folks would chime in with their approach to some very specific corners. I'll be using this track map as my reference. https://speedsecrets.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/MSR-Houston.pdf I've also attached a link to one of my sessions. Turn 2 Carousel - I've always tried to start enter on outside and work my way to inside by midpoint and then inside and track all the way out 4 wheels outside of the exit. The carousel has two inside curbstones. I touch the first one, but displace the second one by a car width. Question: Is it faster to stay outside on the carousel a bit longer to be able to touch both curbstones and not fully track out so wide? Turn 3 and 4 Entry to Diamonds Edge - I brake relatively hard before 3 and then can get back on throttle on the short run between 3 and 4. Question: Would it be better to brake very lightly all the way past 4 (similar to Oak Tree at VIR if you've run that) vs Off and On throttle and carry more speed through that section? Turn 7 Sweeper - I try to just lift and turn and then apply a bit of throttle to braking point before bus stop. Question: Can this turn be taken flat in an 300 hp car? Turn 14 Gut Check - I brake or lift then turn then full throttle trying to make it past 15 before braking again and then maintenance throttle through sugar and spice. Question: Can 14 be taken flat? Would it be better to trail brake from 15 to middle of sugar and spice (i.e. no maintenance throttle)? I am open to pointers any other part of the laps, but these are the ones I have been wrestling with in my mind as I get ready for NASA season opener. Thanks in advance.
  4. Get 4 days of coaching Break 2:00 at WGI Break 1:33 at Road Atlanta Break TT3 track record at Mid Ohio Podium in NASA Mid Atlantic Region
  5. That'd be great. I'll DM you my contact information.
  6. My bad, I thought we were bench racing. Talley has a TT1/2 car in terms of weight to horsepower and referenced NASA lap times. I am just stating the correct target time for that class of car. I have no idea what his car his actually capable of.
  7. Try 1:36. My car only makes 330 whp and I've done a 1:38. You've done one DE so far? I think you just need more track time and less keyboard time.
  8. weird - last time I was at NOLA, my started died. Time before that my throttle actuator fell off. Congrats on the wins
  9. I weigh 3000 lbs and make 330 hp. I get a credit for tires so run at about 9.4:1 raw wt to hp. Car will run 1:38's at MSRH in either direction. I felt that you overstated the weight difference in being huge in terms of performance. At best, 400 lbs by itself would only translate into a 1-2 second difference in my experience. You seem to have the right attitude - you need to work on driver mods. Your car is plenty capable wt and hp wise to run quick laps. Just get out there, get instructed seat time and we'll see you in TT2 next year.
