driving smooth/no crashing is fast.....some guys never grasp that "simple to understand" concept.

As for top speed in 1/8 gascar with optimum tune, NOT that impressive.....1/8EP however is rediculous fast.

You definately get around the track faster on your wheels than on your lid

My 10yr old son got first place in pro 2 sct doing the same thing, he rolled the jumps while everyone else was trying to jump and crashed. he learned then that faster is not always better... It's staying on your wheels....
