It has got to be a lot easier to go from 1/12th to nitro than the other way around. The guys at the 1/12th track told me they had never seen a 1/12th jerk through a corner - due to blipping. I am slowly getting the hang of rolling in and out of the throttle, but it has taken some work and conscious thought while driving. "Conscious thought" is very hard for me while driving.

Yeah 12th is good for 8th, the track time and the tire and battery management (was a bigger issue before) train you to think about the whole race. Throttle control is a crucial part of that.

Im kinda the other way around. I started with 1/10 truck (xxx-t). then I moved to 1/8 with an 8ight. With my truck, I had to ease on the throttle to not loose traction. With the buggy, I could just gas it and know it wnt spin out. So I was on-off the first practice day with my 8ight. Now I put a foam behind the trigger. Should smooth it out alot. Plus, I dont have the money for an on-off throttle finger! I almost balded a set of tires in about 15 runs because of excess wheelspin.

after reading the post i realized that not bliping explaned alot. i get carbon shoes to last 3 or 4 gallons, get longer run time and my tires last a very long time. so rolling off and on to the throttle was something that running electric 2wd mod tought me, and it really helped me in more ways than i thought possible. i never did it in 2wd or 4wd mod electric, so why do it in nitro?

thanks guys

It is all in the driver, some of us blip and the others roll into the gas. I tend to blip the gas, couldnt tell you why it just feels natural. I can be smooth on the gas when I need to though ie slick tracks, fuel mileage, etc.

As we all no an electric motor is instant power. No clutch to engage or spool up of the motor to hit power band. I personally feel thats why quite a few tend to blip. As I said it will vary per driver, but there are some very fast and experienced drivers that still blip the gas even having a tremendous background in electric rc. Here is a really good example in this video which features two of the best the rc world has to offer. It sounds to me as if both of these guys blip the gas.

Yes that would be what I consider blipping. Nice video to by the way.

I think it ultimately is a combination. There is certain parts of the track that there is a lot of blipping and some that require smooth throttle control.

I see a lot of excessive blipping in poorly set up cars to help control traction & rotation in corners.I also see it in poorly tuned motors.I just thought about it & I'm not sure why I do it also, but I cant do it in my electric conversion even though it has a nitro clutch on the electric motor. It only took 4-5 laps to eliminate it from my driving style & then I now switch back & forth depending on if I'm drive nitro of elec.I think even if chassis,motor,& clutch are all setup well it has more to do with how a nitro spools up power or possably the gyro effect of the pistin & rod. Like I said I dont do it in 1/8 elec but do in 1/8 nitro & as far as I see pretty much all drivers do it reguardless of driving & setup abillity.I was just watching Hara at the worlds race today & he was doing it in places too & you pretty much dont get better onroad racers than him in buggy so it cant be that wrong if used for its intended purpose,whatever that purpose is.

the funniest thing for me is when nitro blippers try to run electric and you see their car jerking through the corners as they're blipping the throttle
