Motor Trend's Arthur St. Antoine heartily recommends that you enroll in a quality performance driving or racing course if you ever have the opportunity to do so. As you're all aware, that kind of instruction doesn't come cheap, so while you keep plugging that spare change into your piggy bank, he has four basic free tips that can improve your ability behind the wheel. They are:

  • Be Smooth
  • Turn Later
  • Look Ahead
  • Brake like...uh, well...suffice to say it's something you experience regularly. And by "regularly," we mean in the Metamucil sense.
Arthur goes into detail for each tip in his latest editorial. Straightforward, good-practice stuff. As for that braking thing, once you read his explanation, it kinda sounds like a stealth plea for print subscribers if you ask us.
