The speed deltas between me and the drivers in the top run group with Chin aren't really that different. Here's me going 100 miles per hour and the nascar cup car just barely gets past me:

WOW! He did really struggle to get by. :roll: Properly constructed there is seldom a substitute for cubic inches.

It was really nip and tuck going into that corner with him just barely giving me room. I talked to him in the paddock and he apologized for squeezing me.

Is it good or bad when you turn the wheel left and the car just kind of goes straight? Asking for a friend.

I know a guy named Slakker that this happened to shortly before his car jumped a tire barrier. So I vote: Not Good.

I thought that in racin', you turn right to go left? Not sure where I picked that up, I just remember some old guy saying that once.

So not only do you not know which end of a car is supposed to face up, you don't know how to steer either? And I gave you a good instructor review? :?

:lol:

Glad you are OK enough to post about it.

Now you got it even if that was from the movie Cars. I like my pic better, of course I'm biased.
