Speed Secrets: Why Not Going Slow Is More Important Than Going Fast

#hashtags: #Randy Beikmann #Randy

If you had to guess, how many compromises do you make in just one lap? You know, trading off speed in one part of the track to gain in another? Or compromising braking for cornering, and cornering for acceleration? Or? I don't know, either, but reading Randy Beikmann's (author of Physics for Gearheads) article this week got me thinking about this, and I bet you will, too, when you read this week's feature. And Randy's main message is one that you need to take to heart, and use (it has to do with not going slow).
