In the past couple months I have attended a few bigger $$ bracket races like many of you. While trying to run at tracks unknown to me I have found tracks with bumps/dips in lanes and need to make adjustments on the fly including lowering tire pressures, loosening shocks, etc to get over irregular track surfaces. I'm not alone in this challenge as I watch many of my competitors fighting for the "good lane" only to get kicked into the "bad lane" and dial up and pray. Any thoughts on how to better get over these situations appreciated.

Originally posted by aaron: Hoosiers are new. Tracks are CFR and Byron. Left lane.
I ran both of those events with a Box door car.
I ran CFP left lane all 3 days because they do not have dial in boards and I race alone.
At Byron I started in the right, but when the majority moved to this lane in staging lanes and was being pulled out nose to tail I moved to the left lane.
My Hoosiers were at 181 runs after Byron event with .030 depth of tread hole left and I’m replacing with MT. I had sent my rear wheels to Neil + Parks for beadlocks on Monday after Byron and they will be back this Monday. They installed the beadlocks the same day they received them and shipped back the next day…. incredible!!!

I was told many years ago to find the worst track possible and set up the car to run there. You will going forward never find a bad track. My car never complains so I always go to the lane with the shortest line.
