DwD 0287: Increasing Grip – By the Driver – Part 1
On this issue of Dominating with Dawson, we start to try to go into a topic we heard on the (tremendous) Track Walking podcast. On this particular episode, they had Paul Gerrard on as a guest. They were discussing several factors that a driver can influence the limit of grip on track. The information, and especially the discussion, was so valuable we try to go into the topic and discuss it here.
We did not do a great job on this first attempt but the discussion is a good one. Hopefully the discussion serve to help you to think about the limit and how it can be affected by many factors that the driver influences. Grip is influenced just by external factors and car/setup factors. Also, Vicki’s definition of being on the limit may be a simple yet descriptive evaluation of being at the limit for some of you. It would probably help if Bill knew how to ask the actual question that would lead to the desired discussion. This podcast thing isn’t as easy as we had hoped, lol. Still in training.
