i>: I have been autocrossing for awhile. I have had good results and a my share of first place victories.
: Lately, my times are off by about one to one and a half seconds. Guys that I used to beat are now beatig me. Yes, I must admit that the competition is getting to me and making me push it to the limit. It seems like I'm trying to hard. I go into corners to hot, brake late and get into oversteer, which trashes my exit speed. Basicly, my driving is not smooth anymore. I now do dumb stuff that I learned not to do years ago. I know how to drive, I just can't seem to put it togeather anymore. I think it's a mental thing!
: Any ideas on how to get past this mental block? At my last autocross I tried to be smooth over fast and I seemed to do a little better. They say racing is more mental then physical and I now belive it! So, what can I do to mentaly prepare for my next autocross?
