And that visual skill will allow you to time your turn-in and hand motion and speed right to allow you to manually maximize grip all around. But none of this can be read and understood, from my experience. This stuff needs to be experienced, because without actually doing it RIGHT, you will never if you're doing it RIGHT.
hah you know... I finally learned that I wasn't looking far ahead enough on my last trackday and it definately affects your line a lot!
