In Reply to: when should U and when shouldnt U shift on corners posted by bardarse on August 02, 2001 at 13:04:15:
At the AutoX San Diego BMWCCA this weekend, there was one corner that was a LONG right hand sweeper, decreasing radius, that started uphill and finished downhill, QUICKLY followed by an off-camber 2nd gear left hairpin. My best way around that corner was to enter hot in 3rd gear, and while a bit before mid-way through the corner, downshift in 2nd without applying too much brake, to keep the revs up, and not to have to fumble downshifting to 2nd when approaching the hairpin.
Hope this helps
say you are slowing down as you aproach a corner and you want to come out of the corner without being in a high gear. Should one down shift before taking the corner, after or during. Thanks
