Well age does make a difference. Older players catch on to the techniques faster for every course. The little kids I see around here just bang every wall they see. I think it's how long you've played that matters, not your age.

Age makes no real difference at all. Many things factor into how skillful a player is.

1. Access to videos
2. Atmosphere - any good players around them? Or are they the best they know?
3. How often they play
4. What cars they drive when they play

That's all I can think of right now.

There are older AND younger players where I play that unintentionally use the wall tech on every course outside Iro. And as for older players catching onto techs faster... well, my younger friend "rice." here learned long before I did. wink2.gif

^ I agree. As long as you're tall enough to reach the pedals comfortably all it really takes is time and effort.

Sorry, but I don't agree.

It's like learning tennis. Yeah if you start at 6 you will be better when you are 15 compared to someone who just started at 13. But are you better at 7 than they are at 14?

I just think age determines how fast you pick up things, how fast you LEARN to be good. You know?

@hellspare: Okay... what you're saying is with age comes experience. I'll take that. Just know that there are exceptions to everything. I've got a friend who's been playing ID since Ver1. I've only been playing since Ver3 and already I'm better than him. Keep in mind my playtime is MUCH shorter than his. He started when he was what... 17? I started when I was 19. We're both 20 and I'm better than him now.

Also... I've got a time question for you guys:

How's a 2'59"906 Iro DHD Evo4 without eraser? Average? Bad? biggrin.gif

@touch86: 2'25" Happo Out with a GDB? That's pretty good in my book. biggrin.gif

Guys... I've got more TA's for you to judge.

~190k EK9: Tsuchi OBD 2'44"406 (2 tries)

~290k EK9: Happo OBD 2'21"216

Any good? grin2.gif

Oh no no no... I definitely used techs for those runs!

At FT... I wanna hit 18. But chances are it'll be 19 at FT.

46 ob wet r32? I asked before but nobody answered me.

Err and it'd be cool if you guys can give me pointers on where to improve as well. I run the whole course about the same, just a couple kph slower than dry.

The key for now is to just work on clean exits, that alone will get you to the 44 range.
