Got down to some RC racing over the weekend, first in a long time but hey it came back to me pretty quickly
. One thing I started thinking about is the style I drive with... I like to run lines that are "fun" to me. Problem is, I know they are not the most efficient or fastest lines. I can nail them over and over, issue is I'm so set in my ways sometimes it's hard to change it up.
I like to run into corners, especially after a long straight, fast and wide- I also like to get the car a tad loose and square it off. Basically waiting 'till the last minute and scrubbing off the excess speed by drifting a tad. It's a blast to put some "style" on it and get a little loose, but I know it's not making for the absolute fastest laps.
Part of the reason, I think, is from running 2wd mod buggy in the past on less-than-perfect tracks...another is the number of times I've been hacked by guys that have a ton of HP but lack skills... I found over time sometimes you have to run a bit wide, let the hacker take the inside, and wait for them to crash so that progress can be made without being taken out.
I'm trying to learn the "slow is fast" method, keeping it efficient. Problem is I get bored
. How about you?
