On Flow (Psychology).

Zen (n.)

1. In Forza Motorsport 2, taking 26 test laps with the #23 Viper Competition Coupe, to the point that one is not consciously operating the controls but apparently has wired their optical response directly to their fingers.

Laguna Seca is a great track. Between the Andretti Hairpin and the Corkscrew you need to be paying attention. The hairpin needs to be taken conservatively - there's a strong temptation to power out of the first apex, but that'll fuck you up on the second apex. And the corkscrew is a 40mph turn at the end of a 150mph straight, so it's easy to get cocky and slam on the brakes too late, tossing you over the 'screw and into the dirt (if you're lucky) or the wall (if you're not).
