So in my last post, I admitted how having to worry about my engine exploding was making karting less fun, so while I’m working on that, I’ve been focusing on also how to improve my approach to my driving.

I’ll admit, though no surprise to anyone, that I am not the fastest driver in the world. Therefore, I always want to work to improve my driving skills, and my understanding of how to setup my kart. After a few years of racing, I’ve gotten to a point where “just getting seat time” isn’t becoming as beneficial. I need a more focused approach in how I practice and test, so I can work on developing specific skills with my racing, setup and racecraft. Continue reading

Again, it’s been a while since I’ve posted on here. There is a good reason for it though.

However, honestly, I haven’t had that much fun lately. Like really haven’t been having fun. It’s been frustrating, and I couldn’t figure out why. So I decided to write a post about it to see if it would help me clear my head. (This post might not even stay up long…or it’ll stay up forever. Who knows.) Continue reading

Documentary of Porsche 919 in LeMans – 2015

I’m liking that we’re entering an era of automotive technology development, where hybrid power is being focused as much towards performance as it is towards gas mileage.

The Mclaren P1, LaFerrari and Porsche 919 are just a few examples off the top of my head where manufactures are embracing hybrid technology towards the aim of greater performance. This documentary is of the development of the Porsche 919, heading towards it’s 2015 LeMans win.

These are just one of those videos that I like posting, because it’s cool. Nerdy, awesome and cool. Hybrid tech isn’t just for the Prius anymore.

Everyone has nerves.

Nerves. Everyone has them at some point in their lives. Those anxious butterflies in their stomach. That pounding heartbeat in their chest that seems to want to burst out thier head. That overwhelming voice that echos when it asks “Can I do this?”
