  •  Sliding is not the problem (0+ / 0-)

    if you're not sliding (drifiting) in corners you're not going fast enough. But on a given track (let's say TWS College station ) where the sports car course is (was) half infield, half banked, you can't possibly adjust the suspension the right way, so you cope with the other half. and when It rains (like the last time a I raced there) it's totally crazy. but you cope. At least everyone else in your class is probably in the same boat (boat=useful if it rains in south Texas).

    I hated, but liked rain, because it caused most other drivers to slow down, whereas I could just accept being out of control on slicks most of the time (out of control means being able to make it thru each corner gracelessly somehow, but faster than the guy behind me... which wasn't always a guy...I've raced against, and taught some very talented women).

    But yes, F1 crashes are awesome. I wish I had 1m$ for crash security as opposed to 1k for a roll cage and $450 for a fuel cell, but there you are... Marketing....

    Without geometry, life is pointless. And blues harmonica players suck.
