I did a lot of what Rife suggested in his post. I went a little wider going into the slalom section than I had before. I stayed a little tighter in the sweeper coming out of the Chicago box and I went a little wider on the sweeper at the exit. I think by doing those I was able to pick up more throttle on the exits of those elements than I had before.

Enjoyed the course; I feel like I've been struggling recently in both car placement and execution. I was over a second off Steve's pace in a similar car (as I have been all year), and I was off Corey's pace as well in the mazdaspeed.

Any feedback on my fastest run above (43.092)? Compared to my other runs, I was a little bit slow/timid through the back slalom, maybe a little slow through the first two turns at the start, and perhaps too far off the cones for the left hand sweeper following the Chicago box? Would those add up to at least a second of lost time? Or am I losing time elsewhere?

Thanks!

No data, but I feel like I was in the throttle more. I was pretty aggressive up to the first slalom. I also held limit a lot longer going into the Chicago Box and was more aggressive in that element and on exit. I was NOT able to be tight in the sweeper exiting the box.
