People like to say it's 20% car, 80% driver, and I agree that if you give a good car to a bad driver you'll lose, where a good driver with a second-rate car can pull off a win, but depending on the quality of your competitors, if you're lacking in either car or driver, you won't get far.


What he said.

Races are won in the infield section so $$$$+noskill= no win

Skill+cheap gear ( at club level )= probably will win or at least finish a lot higher than the chequebook racer with no ability

that's odd, I raced for the first time in months a few weeks ago and qualified 5th in the A main. 61 entries in my class (1/8 buggy) and finished 3rd. on top of all that, I'm running a Mayhem!!!! Did I mention the current region 2 champion was there and, he wasn't infront of me. Oh yeah, I was using a $80 Omega sport engine with the stock SportWerks 053 pipe/manifold.
