oh **** god damn I was early apexing #1 and I needed to hold tighter on the exit of the second chicane on the back. It looks like I screwed up the entire back-half of that track. I really don't understand his entry into diamond's edge. I must get out there again this year. Preferably tomorrow.

If you were hitting 140mph out there, you'd brake early too...well, I would.

Hustler,

I need to take your *** to the kart track. Cars seem slow compared to a 125 shifter.

I'm buying a datalogger, and I have data from one session with bad driving and bad braking.

me too. they weigh more, but they have twice the rubber we do, and they're on hoosier r6's. oh, and on early braking, in time trial, if put all four off the track, that entire session is dq'ed. it's easy to critique yourself or anyone else from behind your keyboard.

everything "looks" fast when your 1" off the pavement. your not touching these vettes without anything less than a 250 super kart and pro driver.

+1

Perspective changes when ears start popping from pressure differentials in the car over 110mph...and loading up 1.2g's on turn in at 92mph in the sweeper in a street car with no cage. Mortality suddenly becomes a significant factor.

If you can drive a kart fast, you can drive a car fast. Karting teaches so much more than car driving. The reflexes involved are much quicker with such a short wheel base and no suspension. I was hitting 100mph at msr-c in my 80cc with a draft, and it felt WAY faster than 140mph in a car.

Could I push that corvette faster than that driver...probably not. But I can critize him while I sit at home in my own stool with pneumonia.

MYLAPS

This was 2006, so I assume they have gotten quicker.

Point and case why I don't kart anymore, these guys up front (running faster than the vette) have about 20k in the karts, and they are all cheaters, and damn fast.

Hustler is just scarred that if I brought him karting, he would be changing hobbies lol.

This summer I will.

I need a chain and thats it. I want a little aluminum trailer I can tow with my miata to put the kart on and just leave it in my sisters garage. I mean the track is 10 minutes from her house FFS.

Shifter karts are like track days except you're doing everything at 4x normal speed. If you can learn to pilot one of these quickly, you can learn to drive just about anything.
