Default Facts and Figures...

Gidday Guys

Just a thought , when i ofter read a thread related to a new car or modded motor i wonder just how much better it is.. I would like to see some on track comparisions detailing why something is better. It surprises me especially in relation to a new car that nobody quotes that they are getting consistently better lap times and same goes for modded motors we never see facts only claims...

Anyway something to think about.....

cheers Paul......

Cars: Some cars suit an individual's driving style better than others...

I was unhappy with the way my Mugen turned, got a Losi, and got faster. Was unhappy with how hard that was to drive and with the wear, got a Jammin and got faster. Note that all 3 of the cars I mentioned are GREAT cars...

It is all about having a car that suits your style (and in my case with the Losi, skill level. It was too much for me.)

Will a modded motor make you faster? Some people MAYBE. Not me... I have more power than I can use already. I've never said "I wish it had just a hair more power" unless there was something wrong. Now a fuel mileage mod... hmmm...
