LMK Speed Secret – Seating Position. Seating position is fundamental to consistent lap times. Adjust your pedal length (via a combo of seat cushion and pedal adjustment) so your knees are bent slightly; hands always at the 3-9 position w/ thumbs loosely hooked over the wheel spokes. RELAX! Let the centrifugal force generated in the turns naturally lean your body OUTWARDS. This will free up the inside-rear tire from dragging in the corners… thus, dropping your lap times.
