Alright, first of all sorry for a bit of a clickbait title, it is not really true, you'll certainly speed up your mind, reflexes, will become more precise. However, I think there really is true side to such statement. Let me explain. So you drive modern most recent race cars, probably mostly newest S397 cars. You probably do it a lot and put great efforts to get closer to those guys in competitions. Maybe some of you would also enjoy different kinds of cars, maybe something like 90s street car, or maybe some oldie historic racecar, but when you try it - you don't enjoy it. Or do you ? If you do, then you probably are driving it frequently and keeping in touch with it. What happens ? You probably get so custom to speed, grip levels, braking distances and cornering speeds, it just becomes so normal to you. You switch to car that is less modern, or has lesser performance - suddenly it has no grip at all, brakes are terrible, it can't stop, you can't put the power down - keep spinning out, in turns car wouldn't hold the line you expect - it is disaster, it is super unenjoyable and undrivable ! There is of course a chance that car is configured to handle worse than it should, it is possible. But even more possible and even more likely is that ten minutes you gave for a drive wasn't enough for you to get used to different extremes, and tell your mind new different limits of different car. Because of driving one or a few types of cars that aren't that different you might lost flexibility of perception and anticipation, which maybe is ultimate sense to have. The same could be applied to driving in the rain. Suddenly limits of tires reduces extremely, and for a driver it is necessary to get into new way of thinking, differently perceiving and anticipating car. Everyone should frequently drive something else to stay flexible, also frequenlty drive in the rain, do not always drive only with fully rubbered surface settings most grippy car you can choose. Same goes to guys who never drives modern cars, I do it way too little, I wish I have driven modern race cars a little more often to get more familiar with crazy performance they have. Little storry: once I was working with 1954, I drove them continuously for few weeks maybe, then suddenly jumped into Radical it seemed so pitched up, I pressed ctrl+x to disable acceleration, and then learned that it was actually true speed. It took some time to adjust to new "normal" speeds and to quicker responses. The older cars and street cars requires gentle and respectful approach, less of a rush while at the same time asking more work to do from a driver with steering and pedals and gears, but not that much requiring jet fighter pilot reactions and perfect precision. Technically if you are over 40 you most likely still could be competitive with those. Do you agree ? Do you disagree ? Subscribe, leave a like, comment.
