Warbird Racing August 2006

This isn't really a race report. The race was 2 weeks ago or so. It was fun, and uneventful. My laptimes are more consistent, but not really improving. I need to find about 4 secs a lap to be dicing w/ the next fastest group. As it is I'm leading the "slow group" and am pretty lonely most of the time.

Nice shots

I agree. My slowest laptimes are getting faster, but my faster laptimes are not. So yea, I call that improvement.

You don't get faster until you get consistent enought to start working on things. Once you have your consistent baseline, then you start working one corner at a time to raise your corner speed by laying off the brakes more and/or get on the power earlier. One of these days you will likely find that 4 seconds and not even realize it until later. keep up the good work

While my wife would agree w/ you, be aware that it's easy to appear to be good/smart/knowlegable over the Internats.

But thanks for the compliment. I'm working really hard to balance everything.

I understand your pain... I had a new born, working full time while going to school full time and did it none stop for 3 years. Oh, and I also had a teenager going to the "attitude behavior" crap at the same time.

All turned out pretty good. Even working on getting my master.
