Crew Chief Notes: "The key to driving the Pro 4 well is to maintain as much momentum through the corner. It's very easy to spin your wheels and over rev the car. Just because you can run full throttle without spinning doesn't mean you should. The biggest time killer is getting on the throttle way too hard and shifting way too late. The key to being fast is to slowly roll onto the throttle to reduce wheel spin and to shift as soon as the red light turns on.
***Track Guide*** The lap starts with a quick jump off of the top of the table top. You want to take this jump as straight as possible as this will set you up nicely going into T1. Make sure you lift off the throttle while in the air to prevent the nose from coming up too much.
Going into T1 you want to give some brake to get the truck to turn. Once you have an angle that you're satisfied with, start applying some throttle. You want to slowly roll onto the throttle to make sure you don't waste time spinning your tires on exit.
After a few quick jumps, you enter T2.T2 is a tight hairpin that you can take multiple different ways. The way I prefer to take the corner is to hit the brakes hard to get the truck to rotate and enter relatively wide. Once the truck is pointing towards the inside of the corner, I'll start adding some throttle to allow me to exit the corner as shallow as possible. The goal is to hit the jump directly after the corner with as much speed as possible.
After the large sky away jump, you end up at a smaller roller jump followed by the tight right hander that is T3. You want to get on the brakes before the roller jump to all you to set up for T3. As with T2, I like to enter wide and exit shallow by letting the truck rotate a lot. You can also take this corner by staying to the inside the entire time.
After T3, there is a pretty complex rhythm section. The safe way to take this section is to stay as far right as possible as the bumps aren't as large here. However, the quick way to take this section is to carry as much speed through T3 and attack the rhythm section by entering in the center. The last bump can be quite dangerous, so you really need to attack the beginning part of the rhythm section to (hopefully) allow you to jump over the last bump.
After the rhythm section, you have a sweeping T4. T4 is all about maintaining a constant angle throughout the corner, and exiting the corner as straight as possible. I find that entering wide and the exiting narrow allows you to hit the next jump with no issues. It's also important that you don't take T4 completely full throttle. It's easy to spin your tires here, so you need to modulate the throttle (especially on entry)."
