    Driving styles from East to West.

    I know what is missing in my repertoire that makes me miss A-main.
    Have to say I been studying Gorsky and Jay and Haruki, and I had a chance to watch this motion in action that was a pleasure.

    Samples:











    Don't try this at home this has been preformed by PROS. Bling please don't even try you might get a hernia

    Once I'm done with the SWC race report I will dig up some other great shoots of the fast ones.
    Please post some pics of other great dancers while they race slots.

    Kinda like the way Duran, Bryan and Alex go about it. Pretty calm, usually on the podium. Nothin' fancy, just gettin' the racing taken care of.
    Certainly no offense to other racers. Just my observation.

    I have always gotten a kick out of watching the body language of various driving styles, and I have often been mocked for my own "crouch mode" driving style, when I get real serious.

    But the most extreme case I always remember was back in the 1970's Seattle USRA. One of the top racers and track record holder at most tracks was Tom Matz. He's a tall, thin, bass player - who back then had looooong red hair. Tom swayed rhythmically, girating from side to side as if in time to the music in his head when he drove. You not only had to either try to match his moves or move to avoid him, while also avoiding getting slapped in the face with his flowing red hair.

    Then the other extreme was the late Chuck "Bigfoot" or "Sasquatch" Ballenger. At around 6' 7" and at least 350-400+ lbs, Chuck BOUNCED when he drove... and believe me, neither his bouncing nor his driving did not seem to follow any discernible sort of rhythm. More like Reggae dancing without the rhythm. It was NOT pretty. You would be in constant fear of him landing on and crushing your toes, while at the same time straining to avoid any eye-contact with his ginormous bouncing man-boobs.

    If you were the unfortunate soul who got stuck with the lane choice between these two (and believe me - it would invariably be the LAST lane choice), then you would soon dread the fate that awaits you. Keep in mind... this was also before the inception of "European" or staggered lane rotation, so you were stuck between them for all but the gutter lanes.

    By the end of the race, you would feel as if you just survived a lively game of Dodge Ball.

    At our recent "Summer Classic" -- I was racing next to Haruki, Jay, and Hegadus---- someone said it looked like I was the lead singer for the "4 Tops'!! It was very funny seeing the three of them dancing next to me!! To each his own!!
