Learn how to heel-and-toe downshift. You'll take that turn faster and won't lock the tires. Not to mention it's much easier on your clutch..

Hey guys get this....my stock clutch is really worn out (78,000 miles on it with 25+ runs at the track) so I can't even chirp the 1st to 2nd redline shift....I haven't been able to for about 3 months. But last night while going through the gears I chirped the 2nd to 3rd shift?
??? Friggin' weird!!

your probably one run away from failure
there is probably no friction material left on the clutch disk FAILURE IS NOT FAR AWAY

No no no...well at least I don't think so. I was ripping on the car last night after that, no problems. It doesn't slip either.

Ahh ok then
Did you flat spot the tires? My friend did that autocrossing my car once, kept trailbraking into turns but the inside rear was getting so light he was just locking up the brakes instead. When it was my turn he told me that tire was up in the air around the same turns.. GCs going in this week, no more three wheeling
