corvette95 Posted June 14, 2004 Report Share Posted June 14, 2004 After finishing Twist two for about the tenth time, I noticed there wasnt much covered in the area of shifting...specifically, do you recommend NEVER shifting in a turn while leaned over, and when you do, is there a "Code" way to do it? I am having problems smoothly downshifting coming into turns (even when I slow down to try to practice) I have the tendency to left off the brake when I blip the throttle and let out the clutch (clutch comes out brake goes off), it is worse when I have two or more gears to downshift. I also am scared to downshift in transition turns when there isnt much rooom between a left and a right because if I blow the shift I will hop the rear tire. I have been trying to practice at track days but I cant seem to make progress. Any words of wisdom? BTW...When should I let the clutch out all the way after the final shift, I think all shifting should be done (clutch fully engaged) before you enter (start) a turn, but I have been trying to watch the Pro AMA guys let out the clutch and they mostly seem to feed the clutch AND brake all the way to the APEX of the turn...this seems to go against other principles of cornering?Is this how the pro guys make the rear end come around to square up a entrance to a corner? I am signed up for level two and three at Barber (2 day camp) but would like to work on this before the school so time isnt wasted. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
