I use to have a lot of problems with the RHanders too. I low-sided back in 2005 at approx. 85 MPH and for a long time, the RH's just didn't work very well for me. I think I had myself psyched out because of it. Last year, while doing a trackday at Nashville, I decided to try and figure it out on T3 as to what was wrong and why I couldn't do RH's very well. So, on every LHer, I paid particular attention to what I was doing.....where were my feet....where was my butt....where was my upper body.....where was I looking!!!! Basically, my RH setup was identical to my LH setup........with ONE MAJOR difference..............where I was looking! On my LHers, I was looking all the way through the corners as far as I need to. On my RHers, I was looking maybe 30 or 40 feet in front of me. As soon as I realized that I was doing that, I started working real hard on making myself look through the corners on the Right side! It was like someone threw a switch on..........day and night difference. I still catch myself not looking through the RHers once in a while, but now I know what to do and it's kind of funny.........when I'm not looking through the corner correctly, the entire RHers feels wrong. When I'm doing it correctly, the RHer feels just like my Lefties.
