PostSubject: Questions on hairpins   Sun Apr 07, 2013 12:38 am

What is the fastest way to get around them generally?
How do different drivetrain configurations and centre of mass affect the line?
Is it benifitial to get into a slight powerslide in an AWD?

1) Do not drift, ever. Try taking a tight line on the inside lane (no out-in-out line). Should be in 1st or 2nd gear.
2) FWDs are usually quickest around them.
3) Ken Blocking the hairpins with an AWD will not work.

1. Depends on car
2. Not sure
3. Depends on driving style

The hairpins are a bit special, a little slide can actually work well but its only to line yourself straight for the next apex, allowing you to slam the gas quicker. Just stick to the inside, hug the wall. This is my personal way of doing it, other methods may be better for you


Edit: Hah, I break the rules, I drift to be fast

I see, thanks for the input guys
Now if I'm going uphill, should I take a slightly wider entry, to carry more momentum through the turn?

Nice and tight on the inside works best for uphill too IMO.

I believe that (you should test this) you should try and go as wide as you feel comfortable and cut it in really tight, essentially the 'wide-in-tight-out' technique you would usually do, this will set your car up for the next hairpin. (I'm not amazing but I've been told I do that section flawlessly) like others on here say, It can be based on I'd say about 3 things: driving style, the car and drivetrain.

I hope this helps, OhhLove.

Yeah I do a little slide depending on the car, but nowhere near a drift and doesn't require countersteer
