                I've seen this before, and what always strikes me is the way he "patters" the accelerator pedal in corners. I dig the loafers, too.

                  Thought that was interesting too. A driving instructor on Rennlist said this isn't to modulate the throttle to control wheelspin, but to induce reduce understeer and get the car to rotate.

                    Anything a "driving instructor" says on the internet must be true.

                      Award for most constructive post of the year. I left out details, but I trust the guy.

                      Since you actually own one of those things, do you agree?

                        I wasn't trying to be constructive, just funny. And I don't doubt what your instructor says, it's just that I have been to so many HPDE events, where the "instructors" are just "red group" drivers who help out in exchange for free track time, and you can find one of these "instructors" who will say ANYTHING.

                          Agreed. I don't expect good instruction at cheap HPDE's (the typical $125/day events). The driver instructor I'm talking about is not mine, but he answers a lot of questions on the forum there, and his tips seem solid, but who knows.

                              There's been a lot of debate over the years about his technique. I suspect the secret is that he isn't fighting the traction, he's working with the system reaction times.
