The good news, based on averages, is that other guys are doing the same thing.
We're running a 12th novice at our track with the silver cans. I think it's one of the best things we've done. Guys can go out with a car that's not too fast, not too darty, and easy to maintain. Weekly, we have at least three guys in the mix. The competition is close, the guys are learning about their cars, and not having to worry about a lot of time in the boards or repetitively being passed by the fast guys. Lastly, because it is about consistency, guys are improving their driving accuracy, while the "errors" in driving line aren't all about scraping the car off the board.
