sidewinder22-
does any of the problems you describe in the follow through (going over front foot) stem from me over running the tee pad? I see some long throwers have a long run up and go past the pad (James Conrad) and others where they generate distance without so much forward movement after the throw. When I try the later, I get much less distance. I will try the hip rotation (clearing the hip) and work on the elbow in the early part of the drive as well. Does my release stance look too narrow?

To me, it looks like you aren't bracing hard on the front leg and redirecting the momentum into the disc. The way you are throwing now, your distance is 100% tied to the speed of your run-up.

You are wasting a lot of your energy, and hard to tell from your camera angles, but I think you are hugging yourself with the upper arm. When you say that going slower results in much less distance that's a pretty clear indicator your swing is not efficient. Most people that finally get their swing efficient from a standstill, realize how little their extra speed into the x-step results in more distance as they will end throwing similar distance from standstill and x-step.

When you properly brace in dynamic balance the hip will clear/rotate. When you are running that fast, you need to angle your plant leg more to match your speed. It's like a skier in slalom, they turn back and forth faster by bracing their posture harder to stand back upagainst the G-forces turning them, but in disc golf you bring your trailing arm into the body and let your torso rotate with the G-forces and whip the arm/disc away from your braced center.

Left arm still way out behind you and you are trying to push your pelvis forward way too late after you plant instead of before planting.
