So you are saying that after the initial threshold brake I should immediately begin picking up some throttle (until max throttle at the apex)?Once you have turned in yes you should be getting after the throttle. Depending on the corner you often will be at WFO throttle before the apex.
Regarding braking, My style (Cool in, Hot out) doesn’t include a lot of threshold type braking. I prefer to concentrate on getting through the middle and exit of the corner as fast as possible in order to maximize speed down the following straight. Very hard braking can unsettle the kart badly and result in poor mid corner performance.
Lazy on the brakes? I didn’t say that.
