I’m always trying to maximize efficiencies when I’m in the truck. Rolling into the throttle using only what traction is available with limited wheel slip followed by braking at the last available moment. Then it’s corner entry which is where control comes into play. Rotation before the corner and making the inside of the truck as light as possible which creates more pressure on the side that is getting the most grip. The outside is generally responsible for changing direction. Then as early as possible, start to apply throttle as needed. The idea here is creating a longer straightaway between corners. Just a few feet more than everyone else will drastically increase your average speed over a 20 hour time frame.
It’s impossible to create or maintain efficiency during stress. And if you’re stressed, fatigue will come sooner and be harder to deal with. Ivan Stewart has always told me to relax and stay calm. Larry Ragland always told me to stay calm but alert. Those words alone have helped me improve my endurance a great deal. Stay calm, stay focused, be efficient. It will improve your performance no matter what you are trying to accomplish in life.
Stay in school, continue your education both academic and social, rid yourself of parasitic relationships both romantic and otherwise, surround yourself with smarter people than you that share a common goal and never ever give up.
Happy Tuesday people.
