Technique and settings (MDM or DSC off) will depend on airstrip conditions. If it's full of sand/debris you will spin badly with on the initial hit with DSC off and basically you will have to abort your run. In those conditions, you will need MDM on...which will save you from spinning violently but unfortunately causes a slight delay in your upshifts. Took me a few runs before I learned to "roll on" to the throttle to avoid wheel spin (even with MDM on) at the Coalinga event. Definitely keep the "power" button off.

The BK airstrip may be in better shape given that it's protected from the desert with some farmland to the west.

See you there.
