In Topic: WoO World Finals Finale This Afternoon/Evening at Charlotte: 11-5-22

Donny Schantz was absolutely an amazing master of his craft in winning the final sprint race.

 

Mid corner out and on down the straight he literally controlled his car by manually reducing front end grip to let it move up the track as needed.

While at the same time it gave him maximum grip and acceleration at the back because of the reduction of grip up front.  

 

I got to watch a perfect example of driver reducing the conflict for control of direction between the front and rear tires to gain track position while maximizing rear grip for acceleration.

Well Ds2 I'm suprised by your first question. Today's supers have down force but they are not a sprint car. The right rear, the stagger, the LR shock that locks them down and the 25 Sq ft wing. That sprint car reacts in milliseconds compared to the super.

 

There's a lot of ways to do this to do that and do that to do this.

After reading your reply and thinking about where your coming from with the reply, I think helped me make a connection between my first post and:

Driver Preference.  

 

What is done to a car be it sprint or late to put in the ultimate setup by the setup decision maker, ends up when they've done all they can to be tweaked by "Driver Preference".

 

"Driver Preference" in the pits is all about tweaking the perfect setup for the car per how the driver is going to use it. 

 

How a driver uses the car on the cushion is what makes them either fast or not as fast as they could be.

After writing this follow up I going back to my original thought about what I hoped I would get for replies.

What is it you see a fast car up on the cushion do for different track conditions that make them fast or not as fast as they could be?

 

And what marvels me and makes it magic is how often or how sometimes what looks to not be fast is the fastest thing out there.

Makes me think it's not about the old saying of "go slow to be fast", it's about "looking slow when your fast".

 

Don't know if I made any sense or or not with this but it was total FUN to think about and write about.  ... :)
