Yes.

My opinion is that anyone who thinks watching video before running is an unfair advantage doesn't know how to course walk. If new people need video as a crutch to help them along, i'm all for it.

There should be a huge big screen tv , mounted on the timing vehicle,with vid of course runs, going on during the race,so everyone in grid can watch.

I think the biggest advantage to watching a video would be getting the cadence of inputs through a slalom, Chicago box, etc. So hard to tell on a course walk, so much easier to see in "real time" on video.

you'd be surprised. If you count paces for every slalom you walk, within a year you'll know how fast you'll be going through every slalom and chicago box after your first walk.

Agreed, I can tell you how much throttle we'll be able to use in a slalom in Toby's car after walking the slalom once.

Yeah, but to me, paces don't equate to how quickly you move your hands in succession. Maybe that comes with more experience, or it may vary per individual.

keeping track of slalom paces will allow you to know what you can get away with speed wise IMO. For example when I drive the civic.

22 paces = steady speed slalom
23-24 paces = lift entry accelerate out slalom
25-more = flat entry, flat exit :lol:

keep in mind paces are like tire pressures... go based on your own gauge. My paces are tiny asian steps compared to wide stride course walkers.

3 extra sets of tires..


Even the richest and ultimate race series, F1, limits how many tires a competitor has available for each event. :?

Before reading this thread, I never gave any thought to the topic.

After reading this thread, I will never give any further thought to the topic :D

I'm sure if we were running your cheater Ho Ho's, that would be true. However, on the M&S bricks we are forced to run with, that is not the case!

You shouldn't ever have to lift with an ST (Stand on Throttle) Civic! :mrgreen:
