Alright, first off excuse my ignorance as I've only done a handful of track days. My question deals with braking. From what I've read and seen I know you have to be smooth with the brakes and not just slam on them. At my last outing my instructor recommended that when I get into the braking zone that I immediately (but still smoothly) get on the brakes to where I'm threshold braking and then get a little off the brakes so that I'll still have some in reserve if I need it. Prior to this there were a few times I would ease into the brakes but by the end of the zone I'd be maxed out (got me a couple of times where I just had to go straight since I had cooked it going into the turn). Anyways I was just wondering what you guys think. As a caveat I'm not trying to set any records, I just like having fun with my car and would like to refine my techniques. Thanks guys.
