Default nice driving

...by Ryan Lutz. Looks Amazing the way he just takes these turns and stuff

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlWkm...e=channel_page

I have yet to find my driving style which is usually on-off stuff.
Looks like a lot of on power steering mid corner?

My driving is closer to that then the normal 1/8 driver.Problem is I'm not as consistent to make it worth that muchExample the top 15 drivers at my local track averages 33 sec i can pull a 32-34 with a minor crash lolIm working on it but i don't get as much time to practice or lately race for that matter.I would love to find IT tho (next step)

Honestly, I wish I had Ryan Lutz's driving style. I can't think of any other driver that can carry that much speed in and out of turns. If only he ran an Xray!
But I can't complain too much, my driving style has been pretty consistent lately. these last 3 weekends of racing, I'm the only Nitro buggy to get 12 laps, everyone else only got 11. the only other to get 12 was an electric 1/8th scale.

about this type of driving style, I would think that since your on throttle more would this make your drive times less?
How about tires? Since he drifts alot it looks like if there was a hour main the tyres might over heat or they might even wear faster. I'm sure its fast but maybe I'm over thinking this.

What sort of approach does he take into the corner to drift around it that easily?

Has it got to do with his diff oils or tires or brake bias or just how he takes the corner?

Thanks
