    Thank you. That was something that I was feeling pretty good about after a little bit. I found that envisioning putting my outside armpit on my gascap and splitting my asscheeks with the edge of the seat gave me nice hangoff and a parallel-to-the-bike body position. Is that a good way to think about it? Here's another shot of me, this is in turn 11 from the 18th I think...:

    Not much lean angle in that shot... the lower speed turns I had to consciously think about keeping myself loose, where in the higher speed ones, it was more natural. This was especially true the next session or two after I went down in 3 (which is when this photo was taken), but that makes sense. I think I nicked my puck down on the 19th in that turn once, but I never felt too comfortable going fast through there in general. It will come with time and laps, I'm sure. Any tips on the whole 11 area and getting my speed up? I felt much more comfortable in 1, 1a, 2, 6, 7, 9... those were where I was dragging knee consistently mostly. Felt great
    Any answers to these q's? Or just more haggling and trashtalking?

    from what i remember, your body position looked pretty good, but it did look like you could relax a lot more. It might not be the case, but you looked pretty tense.

    as far as turns 11 through 12, check out some of the videos on Tony's website and take note of the line Ken (the usual pilot) is taking... keep an eye out for any potential reference points.
