Sweeet! Sounds like you had an awesome time - Grattan is a WONDERFUL track!
I never went too fast in #3 because I'm not good at left hand turns, but if you take the inside line you can hold a lot of speed in there. Besides, there's no time to be gained in turn 3. You can always made it up in the esses or comming into the hairpin. The key to a fastlap is the bowl and the sweepers because they lead onto nthe main straight. These were the 2 I struggled with the most.Blade Runner said:
BTW, I'm surprized you are not talking about #3. Talk about needing to know where you are going.
I disagree. While outright cornerspeed in 3 isn't most critical your LINE through Turn 3 and your EXIT speed are pretty important IMHO. Your exit from 3 sets you up for turn4 which is a WIDE OPEN THROTTLE turn leading to the backstraight.cherrypicker said:

I was comming down that hill about 30+ mph faster than that guy so I was like hmmm.... slam on the brakes or try for the pass, well, he slowed down less than I though he would and turned in earlier. SO I just stood it up and laid on the brakes to keep from stuffing him. I should have just waitied, but I had so much momentum coimming into the esses which is my favorite part of the track.Doc said:One more of Cherrypicker... pre-asshole stuff job attempt
Yeah, but you should have saw them before I cropped them and I can never seem to upload the pics when they are larger than 250 x 250.Michael said:pics small enough? :twofinger
