    I am gonna approach this differently.....

    your heel and toe..... ummm, not very good.... you are upsetting the car every time you down shift.

    Now that I'm watching this on something bigger than a phone screen, I'm seeing a trend. It seems like things get frisky on entry, then the car sticks, then things get boring before you reach corner exit.

    That's... different. Could it be a push problem? Or maybe a shock valving issue? Or getting into the stops too hard?

    Put another way, it seems like the limits are way low on entry, then you're suddenly way under the limit.

    What shocks are you on? Looks like you have a fair amount of front sway...


    Or maybe it's just tires that are really wide.

    See if you can sit closer to the wheel. Tilt the wheel up and telescope it toward you if it does that. The steering column should point to your sternum.

    T1: Killer, taking it nice and deep. I don't know how/if you can go any deeper. There's only increments left to gain here.
    T2: Take it in deeper, bigger lift, but not all the way off, then gradually back to full power in one motion. Let it track out at the top of T2. You don't need to keep it tight to the right to hit a second apex at the corner worker station. Looks really good though.
    T3: Turning in a wee bit too early. That's why you had to counter steer on entry and mid corner.
    T4: Ya man.
    T5: What Rob said, in baby steps. Use the end of the red/white curbing on the right as a peripheral-vision marker to initiate turn-in to the left. You turn in a little late, and this is probably the only turn on any racetrack on earth where that isn't advised. Good luck.
    T6-7: I do a straight line from the outside of T6 to the inside of T8. Shortens the track "un poquito."
    T8: Giggety.
    T9: I think you can go back to full throttle earlier if you stay 2/3 left a bit longer. Nice, deep approach and fast entry , but maybe a little too tight throughout. Ballsy, though. Well done.

    I had that in mind the whole day actually but I believe I approached it wrong. I should have focus more on mid and exit than corner entry alone. Looking back at it now, I prolly dont have to down shift to third and just stay in 4th all the way through.

    Went back to big willow over the weekend and ended up with a new pb of a 1:34.7 during my 1st session. It was pretty windy throughout the whole day and i couldn't get faster as the day progress. Still having trouble with turn 5 as I feel Im either overspeeding or underspeeding into the entry.

    1: missed apex, but good use of the tire's potential otherwise. Track out even if you don't need to.
    2a: you can probably scare yourself on entry a little more
    2b: track out even if you don't need to
    3: turnin is way early, downshift ugly, all wrong, but hey the exit turned out ok-ish
    4b: you generally want to apply the gas just once, but I like that you're playing around at the limit of adhesion.
    5: loose on entry probably isn't gonna get you a fast lap time. The braking and downshift could use tidying up. You need to be FLUNG to the outside of 5 and wondering if you'll stay on asphalt.
    6, 7, 8 not corners. You may be able to brave the bumps on the inside of 8, I think the resurfacing may have cleaned those up some.
    9 not bad, but you can probably turn in earlier and scare yourself more on entry, middle, and exit.

    I did big willow for the first time in a rwd car. The lap provided is from the 1st session of the day but it also turned out to also be my ftd. I dont have any data overlay or tire pyrometer readings but any help with the lines will be greatly appreciated! Flame suit on.
