Second Autox experience coming up.
This Sunday, I will be participating in my second AutoX. Regular mz3 in the STF class. During my first experience, my riders noted that I tend to hand over hand, which is slow on the wheel and a bad habit, and that I try to hold the car in corners too much. I realize I have braking issues as well.
On that particular course, there was a series of 3 almost 180 degree corners, which is where I was going hand over hand. How am I supposed to turn the wheel in these instances? Is it a matter of switching the hand to a different position on the steering wheel and throwing it further? Some good feedback on this would be appreciated.
With me holding the car in the turns, is this a matter of entering the turn too early therefore causing me to try and hold it in tight to get the line out I want, or a matter of speed? I realize that this is hard to determine without being there.
Finally, we didn't have a tight slalom, but the loose slalom felt quick enough. what do you experienced guys use as a reference as far as getting the car turning quick enough to clear the cone immediate to you, and setting up well for the next one. I realize its a rythem thing, but do you have a sight point or anything you can share?
My set up is STF because of the SRI, MS front and rear sways, eibach pro kit, a rmm and pass mm.
