Video: AMG Driving Academy Performance Series Episode 2

Mercedes USA is out to teach us all a little something through their AMG Driving Academy Performance series, and their second episode highlights the need to learn how to brake, AMG style.

In this episode, AMG Driving Academy instructor, Tommy Kendall, explains the apparent contradiction that to go fast, you must first learn how to go slow. The video will show Tommy as he demonstrates the fundamentals of braking, including threshold braking and trail braking.

Most drivers feel the need to speed at some point or another, so learning how to keep control of your car through braking is an absolute must in order to have your thrills and still be able to walk away from the experience. In our opinion, every automaker that produces high performance vehicle - such as the AMG models by Mercedes - should offer these same type of training course for their customers.

I was would say that I truly like the figure performance of the AMG vehicle! Learning from Tommy Kendall the technique on how to boost the speed of the AMG is great opportunity. I learn a lot on this four minute video.

Know what? I really love this show for everytime I watch it, I got to learn something new technique in driving! BTW, I never thought that braking could make my driving even faster. 

Nice, I thought hitting the accelerator pad is the key to success in the race. Tommy Kendall has clearly explain the whole course of the race. Learning the braking needs practice and focus as well.

hmm. According to Inforgraphics here at TopSpeed, driving the car too fast then sudden break will cost for a high fuel consumption. Is it applicable here?

I wasn’t impressed with the speed of the AMG for it doesn’t have an amazing performance. The gull wing have increased the weight of the car. However, its a good thing that Mercedes had work out on that problem. And here it is the high speed performing vehicle!

I really love the modern and sporty styling of the car. The speed performance of the car is quite impressive as well. I guess this is one of the high speed performing vehicle from the Mercedes.
