Thats a great idea Puddin!

Even having a Pro there for Q&A would be a huge help to most everyone.

While I am not sure If I would pay for pro tips, I am not opposed to the idea. I have been at many races recently with some top pros, and while they are very helpful, sometimes Joe Racer may feel like he doesnt wanna bother The Drake to take a look at his shocks. It would be nice if some Pros just took the weekend off from the race held by their big time sponsor and just hung out and helped people. I know this may be less than ideal, cause who can be at the track and just not race. My addiction wouldnt let that happen..

I'm not so sure I'd be into a group seminar type ordeal. But one on one, I would seriously consider payin a day for.

If it was a one on one deal I'd pay but with the group seminar prob not cuz u may not get to pick the pros brain as much as you'd like n he may not be able to give you tips on setting up your car to your driving style. But the one thing I can say is if your new or even have experience n u get a chance to be at a race wit some of the big guns don't be afraid to approach em when u see em standin around or jus hangin out. I raced at the horizon shootout jus a few weeks back n I had the best time ever. N alot of it had to do with how helpful Drake, Truhe, n Fischer were. Them guys helped out everyone as much as they could on there down time.

I think the sponsors should hold seminar type events. Have all their drivers there showing the tips of the trade. No charge needed, as the sponsors would be hoping to make revenue from the items sold because of the seminar.

You can have Pro's teach you all you want, but at the end of the day they can only help you understand the concepts. The practical side is up to you, YOU need to go out and experiment with that knowledge because everyone drives differently.

I've asked Pro's for advice before and have done the work myself. I can tell you now that I try to race most Sunday's, plus get out to the track at least once a week for a practice run to trial set ups. Since doing this I've become a world faster, first hand experience offers much more than someone pulling the strings for you.

Of course it's good to have the big guns racing with you as you can follow their lines and stuff though.

Cheers

WOW! You guys make me feel bad for paying some top Pro road racers (Nick Ianatch, Kent Kunitsugu & Lance Holst) to teach me and 17 others how to go fast at Willow Springs.

Those bastards only helped me shave 3 seconds off my laps out there, gave me more confidence, fed me lunch and gave me a full day of track time!!

DAAAAAANNNGG IT!!!


I feel,

I feel,

I feel so...... so.... much faster!!

I would do it. I would say a PRO is going to give those tips and fundamentals that many of us miss.

Every BIG race that I attend w Pro's around I am able to take in so much from just watching them, so I could only Imagine a 1 on 1.
