Driving Race Car – Do's and Don'ts
Posted On March 3, 2017
Most of the contestants on the Saturday night short track racing is a trial-and-error trial sport. Most drivers do not have large budgets and leisure time during the week to test new ideas. So knowledge is usually derived from two sources: advice from more experienced competitors and trying new things race by yourself at night. If you're lucky, you can confirm that a new setup works in the limited practice you get before the qualifying session. But it just can not be sure until you consider that the installation of the heat of the competition.
Like the testing, many drivers learn how to drive a race car simply going out and doing it. Driving a race car is a technique that can only be developed in their own leaders. If you have a good night, take what you learned from the incident and try to duplicate that in the next week. But mistakes can be very costly. The error can mean the track bent sheetmetal, broken parts, tempers grow, hurt feelings, and spending late hours of the store are not options for making the track next week. For this reason, it is much easier to avoid bad driving habits before they begin. After all, learning the mistakes of the track sounds like a good theory, but it's not the best idea if the cost of those mistakes is cold, hard cash.
In order to avoid mistakes on the course, pay great attention to what is happening in front of you and behind you at all times. Do not take risky chances. Races never won in the first round. In order to earn respect more experienced drivers, you respect. Always keep other drivers to drive the way you want. Do not forget expensive sport of racing.
always have to lead the line and the line just
The biggest thing I try not to do is follow the guy in front of me. In other words, if you chase the car in front of you and what you are doing, you can go to the same mistakes as he did. This sounds like a very simple thing to do, but this habit is easier than you think. When the next one car is always looking for ways to make around it, and it's easy to start on the same line as him. In order to be around her, you have to change your driving line mix it and get around. So try a different line, change to a peak or do something to make him an issue, then take advantage of it.
Along the same lines, I think a lot of riders stick to your old habits and THA too long because what most of us know where we are as a race car driver driving very, very difficult. Most athletes want to push their cars at the border and too much engine as the car and the tires can handle. The people running the equipment of each series is very hard for a few laps. But the next thing you know, the tires start to go, but the engine is still there, and suddenly everything changes the way the car drives. In this situation, just overdriving the car. You will need to set the car during the race and not overdrive the car early. You need to find out that the car does not like to be made a full tank of fuel, the partial load of fuel, and the fuel cell is nearly empty. What is required to adjust the driving style, as opposed to when the tires are worn if they are new? Being able to do so the difference between winning loser.
Do not overdrive your car
is important not to develop a habit of overdriving the race car. Override is when you push the car too it is possible. As a rule, it is not a good idea to have the brakes and gas at the same time. That rarely works out well.
If the brakes and gas at the same time, the brake to overheat quickly. It is difficult to get a car to rotate and turn it on when the brakes. It's always best to brake before a turn, and let the car roll. Which allows you to set the suspension so the car can rotate. You may feel slower, but you can turn better, easier to drive and faster than you jumpsuit.
Do not abuse your tires
One of the biggest problems I see is a tendency for inexperienced drivers to hammer the throttle coming out of the turns. This is what separates the men the boys. The available power from these engines, it's easy to have too much gas in the engine, and spin the tires. This is especially easy to do short track, flat tracks or tight bends. If you do that, you end up doing what we call "cooking" of the rear wheels. This makes the excessive heat in the tires and burn what they call the "goodie" out of the tire. They're in the best circles, even if the goodie of the tire.
at the back takes a while, but once you start to rotate them for maximum grip goes away pretty quickly. The tires are the first thing to abuse in a race car. If you can keep the momentum in the race car down to the corner and get into the throttle smoothly, it can increase the speed. It takes a lot of contact, to be able to add all the gas in the car can manage without having to rotate the tires, but once you're able to do that, they will be more faster laps.
It gets really tricky when the car starts to loose. At this point less adhesion is available, and the car wants to spin. If you loose, it is very difficult not to spin the tires. Come a little earlier on the throttle and the engine power to control the wheel spin. The idea is that the tires of the motor blasting by providing a more uniform gas than before.
After a secret police
After a good observer, that will work for you is very important, especially restart. When everyone is lined up on one or two lines, it can be hard to see what's going on 3-5 cars in front of you. This is when you need a good observer to know when the leading car takes the green flag, or clean, if he controls it at the last minute to stack on the field before boarding. If the observer is in the game, you can tell if the band is good on the outside, or if you need to avoid trouble forming in front of you.
Finally, I think the most important thing to remember is that you have to compete with people as you want to be raced. Respect other people and equipment. If not, then this kind of thing will come right back later. It can be difficult to see what is going on in three or five cars lined up in front of you. This is when you need a good observer to let them know what's going on in front of you and behind you. He is also a extra pair of eyes, so no need to multi-task and break levels, we are waiting for you. If the observer is on his feet and tells you around and keep you out of trouble.
