    You are right Noel,I dont brake hard,most of the fast guys doesnt press 100% ever,maybe if you are going 280kmh with higher wing and then only on initial brake input.In iracing it seems 80% is 100%,at least I found that.More than that ABS kick in and that is not really good.Now im using 11 or 10 ABS and car is stopping better,on Monza with low wing I used 8 ABS just because car couldnt stop,low wing,no downforce so ABS was working to much

    So I need to learn myself to brake initially harder,just a little bit harder,80% in iRacing, then it will be ok but I found I brake less and less harder when I'm driving a long time,more than 2h,maybe HE Pros are to hard and no power in my legs after 2h :)

    Driving stile is hard to change but not impossible.
    For example Volker,when we meet he was really slow,slower than now but he watched replays,telemetry,VRS videos,he evaluates every crash,he ask for help etc and now he has so good driving technique,better than me.He is slower just because he still didnt learn racecraft and things like that,time is needed,just time. When you check his telemetry its spot on,trail braking,perfect on telemetry and Im sure with that technique he will go faster and faster

    So my problem is that and over slowing car in corners.I mastered slow in fast out,so much faster than fast in slow out,now I need to learn fast in fast out,that is hardest to learn,missing time from VRS for mi is here,on entry and mid corner speed,when I learn that,if ever I learn that I will be on VTS laptimes but like I said,that is hardest to learn

    From what I saw slower drivers are doing opposite,they enter fast and slow out but if they try slow in fast out it would be so much better and faster.I noticed that when Im behind slower driver,in most cases they overshoot corner,its easy to pass them like that BUT if they enter slow or slowly I need to brake early and if they exit fast It would be much harder for me to pass.
    This is just advice from me,I would be so happy if somebody faster would help me to go faster but its hard to find that on level where I am,in the middle of slow and fast guys

    Thanks guys, I agree, in a real car, generally initial very hard braking into the corner. Perhaps for iRacing it is different so messes with what you are taught on the real track. I am working on trying to read telemetry better. The Nord is hard since there are so many corners, what you do in each corner becomes automatic, like you don't think about it and when you try to change one corner, it throws off the rhythm. So when changing, I try to work on only a couple of changes in particular slower corners and get that before I move to the next.

    I totally agree on slow in fast out is better and later develop fast in fast out. Otherwise, you overdrive the car. I don't think I am dragging the brake as much as I am bleeding the throttle, but I will keep reviewing the telemetry. I want to look at Daytona as well, since that is such a short track, it might be easier to fix issues, or at least there will be less to fix :)

    Oooops - thanks for mentioning that. I'll check my pedals. Now, it would be great if that would translate to a 1-2% faster lap times once I got this fixed, but I doubt it is gonna work that way.
