everything has its advantages and disadvantages, question is which one outweighs the other. we can debate about this for 10 pages and everyone can make great points but i think it would be nice if a cavalieri/mayfield/tebo/c.king/jesse robbers/ someone on that level could respond.

Blipping sucks You save more fuel by being smooth and have less clutch wear saving you even more money

Yes - he does it all the time, check out last year japan's nats vid, there are some long shooting times of his throttle finger. Can't figure out how he can be so quick. He does it on EP DTM too, and I know a few VERY fast guys who do it too in this category. I haven't figured out how they can be so fast that way in that category. but they are.

It looks like it can be done both ways...

I like the smoother one better though - it's so easy to mess up and mash the throttle at the wrong time when the car is off-balance for instance...

blipping is good if you need extra speed on jumps

i started in electric touring onroad, and i had a "nitro finger" then too

i think i might do it to help steer with the throttle

if you run a high gear ratio with less acceleratio, you should be smoother. With more acceleracion you can blip more

That is actually kind of true. Guys at that level understand why they are blipping the throttle, and they do it as a way of being faster in certain sections. Problem is that most people you see blipping the throttle all the time don't understand why or when to do it. I still stand by the smooth is fast idea.

Its driving style and its personal, its all in how you DRIVE. I have 5 or 6 FAST guys here and one is just full F'in wood on the track, and does stuff with a buggy that is just nuts. theres a drivers that you wouldnt know where is is on the track cause he is just that smooth, dont even look like he is going that fast, and we have one that blips all around the track, and they are all FASTER than us.... Dont worry about it, its just you need to find your groove.

i havent driven my buggy at a track yet but ive run it on a plowed field where i setup a small track before it was plowed again. ive only run my min electric buggy on a track but i noticed that with a leaner tune i was able to drive smoother without blipping. a rich tune requires blipping out of corners and ove jumps
