Jaybird180 Posted May 18, 2017 Report Share Posted May 18, 2017 In Twist 2, Chapter 6 it says "Throttle control rule number two: in any fast-entry turn, calculate the roll-off as carefully as you would a roll-on." IIRC there's also a reference in Twist 1 about a smooth roll-off, but I don't have it available to me at the moment. With new information being presented in L2 about braking, does this change anything regarding this rule? In the class, we were presented with graphs of rider input on the brakes, showing that it spiked to near maximum input nearly instantaneously, Dylan said it was about 0.3s. If it's the case that riders are instantly getting to maximum braking and then trailing them off at a rate of about 1.5 - 3s it would also seem to make sense that being diligent with throttle roll off would be less critical. I have observed that many racers nearly instantly shut off the throttle at the initiation of the braking zone before getting hard on the binders. I've also observed myself doing this with no overt ill-effects. Is there anything that can be considered about this rule? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
