I have no idea why, but I've never managed to maintain a consitent line this section of the NDH. I almost quite literally use a different approach on each of them.

Here's a few of the methods I end up using:
1:
Slow in. Hug the guardrail. Power out & while easily preparing for the next apex.
This is the most straight-forward method as I'll have an identical approach on all the hairpins.
Easy & worthwhile,but I feel like it's not the fastest method IMO

2:
Fast in. Brake + a hint of handbrake to powerslide right before & into the apex. Grip & power out while fighting to maintain composure/traction & some difficulty preparing for the next apex.
Idk if anybody else has done it like this, but I use the handbrake thing the moment before the apex on a few tight corners in my Z. I can only do it perfectly in my Z. When executed right, it actually works. I've used it to put some distance on people while being chased(works AWESOME on the "almost"-hairpin by the waterfall). Problem is though, it's not very easy to do(you're right on the limit of the tires on corner exit) & it's more-so instinctual than actually being thought out. When done right though, my butt timer/dyno tells me that I was moving faster than method 1

3:
Just wing it lol.
Fast in. Brake hard, & hope for the best. If I'm really having a close race with someone & I'm chasing, this is the method that usually gets used lol



What kind of methods do you guys use? I'm curious to see what else is being done. & also if you have any tips/suggestions, I'm all ears!

Brake, at the apex or right before it I handbrake and power shift on the exit, works like a glove dude

I personally use what you described in your first method for nearly all RWD cars. I think the more acceleration a car has the better it can do with that kind of line though.

The lines thru those sections should be based upon your car.
Cars with a high rated acceleration(ae86/mx5/mrs/etc) are able to hug the corners.
Heavy weight cars with a slower acceleration or the ones hard to fit into B class need to carry the weight thru by taking a slightly wider line to maintain speed instead of slowing down, hugging the corner then sluggishly accelerating out.

Konasumi Clift Notes
Konasumi hugs the guard rail...

BTW You cant merge in to oncoming traffic when its a two lane road going opposite directions the center yellow line isnt dotted.
