In my defense, I typically drive mod truck, mod buggy, mod tc, mod 12th; with novak 4.5/6.5/8.5 power, and 1/8th nitro buggy. I can handle power, I just wasn't ready for it this time. The car had more speed and acceleration, and lots more drag brake. The drag brake is what really threw me, all the awesome lines I could set up with the slower motor were blown and inconsistent. Better luck next time.

well, i guess with that car you're used to smooth, clean lines, and with something a bit more powerful it does throw you, and you're all over the place. most people just use that extra power to floor it round the straights and basically drift the technical bits.
