My first 1/12 experience:
A turn marshal crippled my car on the first run becuase he came out suddenly when i was at full speed at broke my hockey bar.
I was crippled in the next 2 heats and 2 finals. Haha...
Thus the car was badly tweaked.

However, the good news is that the car was still driveable and within 0.4 of the fastest lap. The car was very consistant and if I did not have the broken hockey bar, it might be a different story.

Anyway, when you think the car is really handling, what more can you do to increase your pace. Maybe cos its my first time out with 1/12, I found the handling awesome but I just could not make my car that 0.4 per lap faster. Maybe it was that broken bar, maybe it was something else. I just dunno.

It's all about corner speed. If you are running stock, that is extremely important because you cannot bolt in a bigger motor to make up for a not-so-fast set up. If your car is handling very well, you can use a bigger pinion and get some more overall top-end speed (such as on the straight). However, your car needs to carry really good corner speed so that the motor isn't bogging down and overheating trying to get the car going out of the corner.

Besides changing the pinion what you do at this point is start making changes to the suspension. Start with changing caster (increase, decrease) and making changes with the center shock (stiffer spring/shock oil to try and free up the car, increase/decrease preload to play with droop, etc).

Oh, and tire selection can make a big difference in lap times, too.
