Re: EX500 Wins WERA National V5 Championship!
My home track was Loudon NH A nascar oval with a few wiggly bits added to call it a road course. Now one race weekend they were re surfacing the infield bit that was turns 1,2,3 and re directed us to use the nascar oval turns 1,2 Now on the EX you hit this thing at 100 mph and set the lean in the first few feet, then had to hold that angle for a week until you got round this thing.
It was boring at first, but then I started to experiment with throttle and steering inputs. I learned how to control front and rear sliding ,how to back it in and even to push the front at will.
In normal road corners you are only at full lean for a few seconds. the rest is turning in to powering out. so you don't get much practice at full lean.
This new found skill improved my lap times considerably due to my corner entry speeds being much higher because I was able to control front push out to the apex.
Scary but fast.
