Racing Theory 101 - Braking and Accelerating
Breaking and accelerating is a vital element in car control. Applying different pressures
and or at different times of both the bake or the throttle will render wide range of
effects on the car. In general they are used to get the car accelerated
or slowed to the proper speed range the car needs to perform a desired affect. When going
to full braking or acceleration,
refrain from slamming the pedal to the floor mat as fast as possible. This will abruptly upset the weight distribution making it harder to control your car.
Fast application from 0 pressure to full pressure should not be obtained faster that 0.5 to 0.75 sec. The thought to keep in mind, is to quickly squeeze it all the way to the floor. Full braking of Imprezas should not go beyond engaging the ABS. If you have do not have ABS or have disengaged it you should keep your braking under the limit of wheel lock-up. Having stronger upgrade bakes postpone bake fading under hard and repetitive use and allow later braking points
