Hey guys,

I'm going to be in a NASA HPDE at TWS this weekend and once again, I'm looking for any advice you all can give. Lines, places to watch out for, other stuff that might not be obvious, etc.

I'm actually going to start making a 'book' of track notes for various tracks.

Thanks,
~Jeremy K.

EDIT: configuration is going to be the 2.9 CCW

Watch some of RichS and ChiliRed's videos.

Don't go off in 1 or 7, and watch out for the 13/14/15 combo as they can mess up your exit onto the straight or possibly send you into a wall. 6 can be bad too if the ground is muddy.

Wow that was fast. I forgot to add in that the configuration is going to be the 2.9 CCW

That's all I have ran. You can view my videos, but I'm not very consistant yet on that track...

Turn 4 has a bad rap if it's wet. Sometime back a Porsche dropped a load off oil on the inside of turn 4. Was a long time ago, but when it's wet the stuff comes to the surface and you have to go off line to clear the corner.

Coming off the long main straight in turn 1 can be a bit unsettling if you catch it wrong because of a change in pavement. Start your turn in when the dashed lines become solid. You'll see it.

Coming down the hill into the carosel is also a pavement change. Most noticeable on the inside, where you really don't need to be, but in traffic could end up. Just be aware so that if you do go there the sudden bottoming out does not catch you by surprise.

Take your time in the first lap or two to get the tires up to temp. Too many go out of the pits blazing, only to end up sideways.

Have fun and enjoy the ride!

I always forget about turn 12, mainly because I take it so slow. But yes, don't want to go off there either.

Actually you don't want to go off anywhere on TWS. That track just scares me, so I just don't go off. :)

TWS is not my best track, but I believe my line is decent. RichS is going to be the guy to talk to about TWS as I believe he holds the quickest time out of any of us. Actually I think Jefferson has done 1:57, but he doesn't seem to post here much any more.

I will be racign in the Enduro, SM Turbo 79. If you catch me in the pits between stints, I'll be happy to visit with you. Be careful, though, we might put you to work!
