Aside from all the motor problems i'm having, next next week is a autocross event and i've decided to go. I'm searched the forums and the best article I found close to my answers was Flat Foot Shifting, but this is not my complete case. Story: Now in my city there is a place where every friday/saturday night all the tuners, muscles, euros, and every other car comes out to park, have a coffee and just talk to each other. So I see a teg and just started random conversation. He said he was gonna go up there as well. I checked out his car, asked him if I could go for a spin and he said sure. (Stock GSR w/ I/H/E thats it). So as i'm giving her some gas he asks me "why I drive like that?" I'm confused, and here is the lecture I got from him in short. "Dude, when you race, you should have your pedal to the floor at all times except when you shift! That way the engine gets the most gas and can produce the most power at all times!" My dilemma starts here. From all the cars i've red-light raced, I have barely EVER EVER threw my foot to the floor. I consider my acceleration technique to be curved; My foot goes down gradually as I 'feel' the car needs it to be father. Is this correct? On the way home I tried driving WOT but it just made alot of noise and didn't go anywhere. Maybe it has an effect on higher power-producing cars, but it doesn't seem to make a diff for me. Any feedback?
