    I came across this and thought it was interesting

    “You don’t get benefits from mechanical repetition, but by adjusting your execution over and over to get closer to your goal.” - Anders Ericsson (the Florida State University psychologist whose research on expertise spawned the ten-thousand-hour rule-of-thumb)

    I wonder how that relates to getting better at GT. If you keep doing the same thing each lap will you see improvement?Or is it better to take that brave pill and turn in sooner than feels natural, brake less and earlier than you can and any other advice that you have heard but not tried?

    I am of the notion of, there's a time and a place. If you are in a position that allows for you to experiment, then by all means. If however, you are in a pack, perhaps it would be a better idea to use the technique you are consistent with.

    On a sidebar. Does anyone else feel shame when they log in and see their bonus is only at 110%?

    I need some help in the GTR. What's the best shift point and brake bias? I didn't race Sunday so I only have experience from last Thursday.

    Just so that you know you should always read at the very least the last two pages of the thread it'll take you about five minutes at least that way you know what's going on in this case the combos happen to be on the last page otherwise you will end up getting a lot of smarta$$ answers from these guys also the combos are posted very soon after being announced on the first and second post of the thread if they are not updated try and read a few pages back from the last post you will find it or at least some talk about it so you will know what everyone else knows

    I would have to argue that at this point, asking that questions is a bit smartassish. However, I have grown senile and am not sure if dcallnight joined in the last week. Because otherwise, I find it hard that any one who has been on the thread surely has to have seen all the fish slappin goin on here.

    Going back one page, skimming fast, is easy, even on a phone.

    I agree but I feel someone also has to be there to guide people the right direction I looked at his profile he only has 19 posts so he is fairly new if we all made them feel stupid because we think they asked a stupid question they may think we don't like them and we don't want to lose people because we are just razzing them

    New question for sign-up questionnaire:

    Which should you not do to find the current combo listing? Pick two.
    A. Post in the thread and ask
    B. Read Post #2 on the first page of the thread
    C. Read the last few pages of the thread
    D. PM @JLBowler and ask for the current combo list

    I think it's too short. Should be two hours.

    @zer05ive the Mystic Racing series last Friday was a great event, the concept is good and it'd be cool to do it regularly, nice idea!

    Okay everyone, the 24 hour period is up and PM's have been sent. Thank you to the five or six people that responded and hopefully we can create a good enough idea to make a possibly Friday Drift Event. :)

    If someone wants to PM me and wait for an answer, I'm fine with that. They could find it much faster by reading the thread in that case but if they're willing to wait for an answer, I will give them one without a fish slap. Asking in the thread is just plain lazy and wanting instant gratification.

    For future reference, this video exists: https://(Youtube)/watch?v=qbdg6o8Z11I#t=01m26s

    I'm sure someone will find a use for it. ;)

    Sorry, had to remove the domain from the URL to keep the dumb as :censored: forum software from automatically embedding it -- at the wrong timestamp. Uggh. Just replace (Youtube) with "www.youtube.com". If I find the time tomorrow I'll extract just the relevant bit :)
