There is no anticipation or really totally mind blowing flash of cosmic insight involved. The first insight was to transcend the idea of driving a car and start thinking about what is really happening, which is driving a computer. This was a flash of insight that did indeed occur when cresting the ridge on Nurburgring, and I remember it very distinctly. It instantly changed how I looked at everything. Since then, my assumption has been that creating a pretense of driving a Lotus or Ferrari interferes with the real experience, as any witness can confirm, which is we are driving computers. This brought me to drastically changing my driver view, all my setups, and how I thought about what I am doing when driving. As I recall, this was a pretty rapid and linear progression coincident with major drops in laptimes on all tracks. So I don't know for sure which of these changes were more the cause of what I consider getting way better much faster than before. An interest in finding out is part of the reason for opening this discussion.
Nope, John, no mirrors, not trappdoors, no trick questions.
While understanding exactly what you say, eg : """ This brought me to drastically changing my driver view, all my setups""""" So, how did you actually changed a driver setup, and a driver view ???
Heck , anything that makes me go from positive to negative is welcome.
Actually i'd go as far as pretending i was driving a sausage or a banana if this helps me out of my current drivings style which really "BLOWS"
Eg. in Watglen, 65 mode my best laptime with the fer512 is 1.11: 45 thats is about 3 lightyears away from the lap record of about 55 seconds......................
