Default High Speed Runs

Just looking for suggestions to help with keeping the car straight and on the ground. Have a High Speed Challenge this weekend.

Ground effects, diffusers, and balanced tires.

EDIT: Make sure NOTHING is bent. At high speed, one bent part can create more bent parts.

Turn you Steering rate down to about 5% probly elen down to 3% you will only need to make fine adjustments to keep it streight too much steering at high speed = bad things keep your CG as low as posible. make the car as light as posible. use thin tires instead of wide. I been around other racing besides Rc

Hi Rockstar,

Email me, and I'll send you "Speed Running 101".

I wrote it for www.rc-isc.com with 201 and 301 coming soon. Lots of "must know" info for going really fast.

I can help you personally as well - just shoot me a mail and I'll tell you anything you need to know :-)
