So the general wisdom on this site seems to be that braking in corners/rolling off the gas is a bad idea that will only result in chaos and carnage(possible slight exaggeration)
However, I have read in several different articles that Rossi et al. will brake relatively hard right to the apex of a corner even on a wet track.
Is this trail braking the fastest way around a corner or is this done to take a more parabolic line and keep people from ducking inside for a pass?
ie. do they qualify this way as well?
I have personally rolled off the throttle or tapped the front brakes well leaned quite heavily (for me) and i believe it has saved me from running wide. maybe not?
I also read somewhere that you can somehow use your rear brake to tighten your line in a corner. Didn't want to try that one. Seems like the consequence for failure may be dire.
No offence, but i don't want to hear about contact patches and weight transfer. i have read a bit on single track vehicle dynamics and all i figured out is that it's some complicated shit that u (probably) don't fully understand.
I want to hear from the racer boys and the wannabes who have actually tried this stuff on the track and/or the street.
