    So I wasn't just saying simply "I need to go faster", as I went on to explain the components of that goal after my "go faster" comment. If I'm not using all my tires grip on a smooth line I have speed that I can still utilize. Just "going faster" without having a plan of how to do it obviously not smart. But understanding where and how to shave seconds is going to include knowing where you can go faster and growing a pair to push yourself to later brake markers, use more aggressive trail braking and gassing out of exits harder and sooner. Finding an ideal line can be done simultaneously, but if you already have good lines and are not seeing the times you like, it's only going to be pushing harder and faster that will lower times. Is there anything different from that approach than "working one segment at a time"? How do you work one segment at a time? You work on getting the fastest time through that segment by finding the right line, braking later, powering out of exits as soon as possible, etc. To make this happen, for me, and I'm guessing most people, is trusting tires to stick and knowing where the limits are. It's a hard limit to become familiar with enough to push yourself there corner after corner without going over, but to shave the time, it's necessary. This all makes sense to me and is not that different from what you're all saying. I think my words describe what goes on within your 'one segment at a time' approach. Help me out here if you see a flaw in my thinking. I'm trying to make sure my heads on straight and I'm always open to suggestion.

    Honestly man, it's probably just how I read what you wrote. You're saying similar things in a different way. As always, I'm more than happy for anyone to bounce ideas off of me or work with them to figure out where they're struggling so anyone can come find me on race weekend and there's a good chance we can find a decent chunk of time in you.

    Going faster without a plan is planning for disaster. Just going out with the mindset of going quicker isn't going to help you, it'll hurt you. If you have a plan of exactly what you are going to try to go faster then try that in one corner and evaluate it like Shane said. I've had many breakthroughs in my riding and none of them happened by accident. Identify an area that you think you are weak in and try to evaluate what you can be doing differently in that area, then try it on track.
