Braking on LRP is a bit of a personal preference maybe. I managed a couple of very low 1.04's before hitting 1.03, and all I did to get into 1.03's was not using the brake for T2 (or is it T3?) - the left-hander.
I'll try to fraps a 1.03 in practice today with the throttle and brake input visible, but so far I've only dipped into it 3 times, so it might not happen ;D
Oh, and Hyperactive, does what you said mean that you drive absolutely 100% pedal-to-the-metal during races? imo that's not the way to go if you have to be competitive for 20 laps - I usually keep a safety margin of 3 tenths or so, more if I have a healthy lead and/or no chance to catch up to the leader. If I drive during races like I do during practice - in the low 1.04, high 1.03 zone then there's a good chance of a few nasty offs when I take chances. There are times when I go into a corner (especially the last 2 on LRP) thinking to myself "well, if I floor it now there's about a 50% chance I'll go over the kerbs and spin on exit" - during practice I'll go for it, during races I definitely won't.
Perhaps you mistunderstood me though, when I say don't drive at 100% pace in races, I don't mean drive like an old lady on Sunday-morning - it just means take less chances and don't try to go PB-hunting ;>
Cuz once you're in 1.03 territory in the rookie solstice you're definitely taking major chances unless you're very experienced with that kind of speed - some people can drive 1.03's comfortably, so their error margin is different during races as well. Anyway, if you're driving faster than you're comfortable with during the entire
race you're doing it wrong imo
Like I said, it's alright to push when it has purpose, but if your own pb is 1.04 and the guy in the lead is driving 1.03.5 average then it's silly to try to give chase and risk your race on an impossible feat.
