I did 12 sessions over this past weekend on two different tracks (8 yesterday, 4 today). Gotta get ready for that cold milwaukee winter.

I've finally got the 3 C's down...I think its control, cadence, consistency. I could never really get beyond the control. Anyway, I did feel pretty tired at the end of today but I posted my best lap. Ross' advice really helped. I practiced resetting myself and I found that I'd screw something up, reset and breathe deeply and then I'm back on the horse. I ran most of my laps in a session within 1-2 seconds whereas I would range from 3-5 seconds a session before, and those were good sessions. Since I was able to be consistent, I tried not braking as hard, adding a little more throttle sooner, and really maintain a decent slip angle for some of the longer, faster turns. I know this was the stumbling block to really fine tuning my technique and getting those extra .1 of a seconds out of certain turns.

I think I've got this...just need to keep working on it.

@Ross...that's exactly the advice I needed! Big thanks!
