I've had my WRX to 4 SCCA Solo events. (This is my 3rd season...used front drive cars 1st 2) I'm doing OK in Solo, but need to learn how to shave a few more tenths of a second of my times.
I've been given a couple of suggestions; 1) Left foot breaking, 2) hand break use. After doing some reading, I don't think that using the hand break is too smart, due to the speed difference between the front and rear wheels and the differential...as some one put "makes bad juju". So, I'm trying to learn how to use my left foot to "lightly" touch the break and keep my right foot on the peddle to keep the rpms up...It's tough...break peddle is light and my foot heavy
BTW my PAX time beat a STI this last event...I know in D Stock, I will never have fast time, but I do want to maintain respectable times.
Does anyone who does Solo have any ideas?
PS: I had 1000 mile on my WRX before I did Solo.
Getting 25 mpg
4700 miles on od.
And it keeps feeling better every day!
