totally agree, after spending the whole summer running 1/10 electric with 4T motors and lipo in a tight track, 10 sec laps and cars are running back to back, it helped me alot control my nerves and keep it mistakes free

i cant do what you do, i have to really focus on my driving till i get into the zone where i see and hear nothing but my car and my pit man. when in the zone, i drive my best and manage to pull tons of laps without mistakes.

I get so zoned out sometimes that my pit man breaks my concentration At least I don't have to worry about that oval racing

I'm not super experienced but I drive my best when I just forget about being in a race and just zone in on driving like it's a practice. If I hype myself up to do well, that's when I do my worst. I try to race like it's practice day and I'm just having fun... That's what it's all about to me. It's not till after the race that my competitiveness kicks in and I really think about how good or bad I did. If you can get in that state of mind you never really get nervous, or I don't...

Move real close to the guy next to you, look at him and say "you have really pretty eyes!" The laugh will calm you down, and it will mess with him and make him mess up.
