When do you guys get back in the throttle after apex or before. I was watching the races this weekend a these guy were squareing the rearends and looked like they were flat footing this cars way before the middle of the corner i must be waiting way too long with my car i wait till i feel the right rear catch should you square the rear quicker i hope you guys understand what i am trying to say

Every track is different. Try to get right behind one of the front-runners in hot laps and see what he does. Even better, sit out hot laps and watch the good guys and what they do.

So do you back all the way off on the throttle before entering the corner

It depends on if you are driving a 4bar or a 2link. With a 4bar u cant wait on the car like you can on a 2link, I drove a 2link for 2 years and a 4link until now. In a 2link you need to let the car roll through the corner as strait and as fast as you can. Keeping momentum is the key to being fast. With a 4bar you cant really drive the car totally strait through the corner because they have roll steer when u get back into the gas. It also depends on how much left rear u have in the car. Sometimes when u get in the gas with a lot of left rear it will push u up the track, so u will have to wait on it more. Another thing is if the track is big small tacky or dry. I hope u can kinda understand the way i worded it.
