Only a man who could hustle a minivan around WGI with such poetry and grace could be the one who coaches Rob Wilson.

I rest my case. <mike drop>

You guys are killing me. By the way, is Denise Richards on PornHub?

youve been in the same hotel room with Dave? I mean not that there’s anything wrong with that.

You're a prospective RennSpoon candidate, for sure!

zzyzx, while Rob certainly was fast in his day, it's not a "technique" that he teaches, hence it cannot be "explained."

The information that he shares with his clients is not particularly unique to him nor proprietary in nature, hence it's not even "IP" to be protected.

Instead, it's an approach.

It's a way, after careful assessment and evaluation, of looking at things that are within the driver's control.

Things that, if optimized, better understood, or looked at from a more macro level, can infuse the driver with the ability to exceed their own internal "limits," hence improve their own performance.

It's extraordinary, refreshing and incredibly effective.

But it's not a "technique" or specific skill execution, but instead understanding deeply the ripple effect of driver inputs and car response.

It's not a "line," but an approach to defining the line as one that allows the car to do and go better than it might using the driver's present approach.

It's a very clear methodology, and a clean, unflustered and utterly simple approach to inculcating this into a very high functioning level driver. It's refreshing, invigorating and infects the driver with new enthusiasm.

Because just like everyone here, they just want to improve. And Rob's approach is different than the "can't see the forest for the trees" approach of conventional coaching, or people's idea of what that is...

Thanks for the laughs.
Now I just need to make sure Rob doesn’t see this thread.
