ANY kind of competition is stressful. And especially when your paying thousands of dollars on the equipment. I think you are the only one that takes it like that. Get around some SERIOUS racers and see what they say about it.

Maybe they will give you a refund, or I'll buy the D8T from you for a fair price?

I am like everyone else. I don't think there is "cure" for it. However, the very best thing I ever found to do was block everything else out. (it took me some time before I could do this) Get in your head that you are out there to just drive the track and nothing else....you are not racing anyone etc. Concentrate on your car and your line, and let everyone else do whatever. You are just there to get your car around the track without wrecking etc. And try not to get caught in any meaningless battles with someone. At first this will make you a little slower but as you do it more you will get faster and faster

Hope this helps
