Braking

Braking

A car can brake faster than it can steer or accelerate. Therefore, in theory, the impact of a proper braking technique should be superior to a proper manner of accelerating or turning. Unfortunately, the braking techniques are also quite hard to acquire. Braking is so critical, we have divided in into sections to help with clarity.

Techniques:

  1. Threshold Braking: How to brake to maximal efficiency and how to brake when taken by surprise.
  2. Left Foot Braking: How to brake with your left foot, with or without the right foot on the gas.
  3. Trail Braking: How to brake into a corner or in a corner.
  4. ABS Brakes: How does the system that prevents the wheels from locking up works.
