Good work. During HnT, try not to lose brake pedal pressure.

Thanks! Yes getting HnT down perfectly will take a lot more practice. I've been told by a few instructors that my pedals are just too far apart at the moment.

The stock pedals? I can maintain brake pressure during heel and toe but it took a lot of practice and I guess the fact that my last four cars have been BMWs with identical pedals has helped a lot. Pay close attention to the Gs you feel during braking and aim for a consistent feeling of deceleration through the downshift, you'll get it in no time.

I've only been around Laguna Seca once but I liked treating turn 2 as a single apex better than trying to double-apex, you just lose too much time trying to cut a clean line through both apexes and you have to slow down more coming off of the straight / turn 1.

It's very upsetting to me about the sound limits at the track. Bunch of BS. It's like people buying a house under the air strip at LAX then asking them to reduce the noise of planes.

My bitterness comes from my track vehicle being a corvette and in no way being able to properly attack that track without getting kicked off. Stupid stupid stupid.

I think most of us had suspension upgrades, but the suspension compresses a lot right after the cork screw which makes them look slammed.
