I appreciate the compliments on my driving Paul. I’ve spent a lot of time reading and trying to apply things with driving and tuning over the past 11 years of racing.

If we’re going to discuss about driving dynamics, we’d have to start a different topic because there’s a lot more that goes into it other than what line you’re taking. In sprint karting we have to worry about how much we are loading the outside rear and keeping the inside rear unloaded, working with steering inputs as well as throttle and brake modulation.
