I run a metric and the car enters good, but is loose at apex(middle 1/3 of corner). Exit is pretty good also except I think I'm sitting there thinking I've lost a lot of time in corner and may get a little to hard on gas sometime and cause it to be loose. Where would you first look to make car a little tighter at apex. I'm afraid to start making changes on my own because it might cause a problem on entry and/or exit. Any ideas?

Hey Donavan dont know if i mentioned it last week but when we got to watch you we thought you should be higher on the track. You need to enter with a higher line and then slowly try to come down. I think you are entering to low and you loose your mumintum darn spelling its early though lol Just leave the car alone and try a higher line and you will be fine. I still think you have not got that pavement driving out of your system let that car work and adjust turning with the speed you enter the corner. If you want i will get the wife to tape you so we can look at it together that helps alot. What you think the car is doing is usually not what it is doing. The other nite in the main i thought my car was really loose before i broke the axel but really it wasnt i just didnt have the right set up for as dry as the track went. See ya Fri. maybe Sat.

Thanks Steve. 17J, I'm already back in the gas some-not real hard though.

think steve may have hit it there sounds like you are tring to diamond the turn instead of floating it in and driving it off. you may accully have a push from carring to much speed and then it is getting loose when it does bite. put her up on the top side and see what it does before you change anything.if it is still loose then try dropping some pressure in the rr or take stagger out of the rear
