The problem is, a stock motor and gp3300 batteries is too fast for most newbies. One way to slow the car without de-tuning it is to adjust the current limiter on your esc, provided you have a decient esc. The current limiter will reduce punch and you'll have to drive smoother to keep up. Once you can wheel the car, set the CL to 100% and although some of your throttle control may be off at least you'll be able to wheel your car.
The aim of the game is not just to finish a race without hitting anything, you also need to finish the race without blowing any lines. Now if only I could do that...
