Again, I say PRACTICE! And have patience.
Yea we haven't been racing long. And agree slow is better but slow enough to where she can barely get over the jumps by just driving up and down I think is a little to slow. But maybe that's just me.
I think I just need to take her to the track more to practice would help her more.
I don't know maybe I just hate the fact that I can't help her more.

Put her in a 10th scale SC.Relatively cheap and you can buy a bag of parts for less than you'd pay for a pinion for a truggy. I bought my 7yrold son a SC 10. It's a growing class here, even novice for him to race with.

Sounds like practice is the key here.

However, even if she drives like a grandma.. Does it really matter?

You have two excellent things going for you

1) Your spending quality time with your daughter.
2) This quality time is FUN time for both of you.


Sounds like your a really lucky man in my books.

Yes I am very lucky that my daughter wants to race with me. That's why I'm trying to find ways to help her. She wants to do better but gets frustrated. I tell her only time to settle down but she takes after me LOL!!
