Jason Branham is a local here and I try to watch him drive whenever I can. He doesn't really look like he's going that fast because he is so smooth but he clicks off lap after lap in control and FAST.

He's the current RC Pro buggy nat'l champ.

bashers ok were just guys haveing fun racing not bashers

yea, it was dry the lack of rain dint help at all during the summer time in 2010 when it rains a lot though there its not bad dusty wise and when its cooler out also.

the reason why i think the track doesnt get water down is because theres no water pipe and hose around.

its just dust it will kill you lol .

and hey its close to my where i live and gas is expensive lol.

I always remembered thinking how certain guys got so fast or so smooth. It just takes practice. I also learned that it just can't be you out there turning laps, making bad practice. In that case you are just practicing bad habits. So I guess it's the old saying that "it's not Practice that makes perfect...it's perfect practice that makes perfect".

Try to slow down and hit your lines, etc. You may be going slower for now but once you get the basics you start picking it up a little at a time until you are feeling good about pulling trigger and going fast.

Here are a few of my personal vids from this past year. Most of the fast guys will always look smooth and in control. The best of the best can hang it out and blow your mind But the world does not have many of those guys!

As long as you're having fun, that's the main thing; but some of the guys racing were getting hacked hard.

We water our track to keep the dust settled not for breathing purposes but for vision. That's why I asked.

its, good man yea most clubs tracks with truggy classes theres a lot of hacking im not really one of them though i run in the sportsman truggy class there.

yea, it can be hard to see with the dust but i am going to talk to the race directers about watering the track or better dirt.

i, noticed its a rough track lol im telling them about that to to just sweep the ruts out of the way insend of using a blower all that does it take away the dirt from the track.

or do some track matience some people dont like the way it is.

but, they run the program good and the jumps are good i just hated that big triple in the video i just double it not worth it done tried it .

I forsure see wiggle wheels as being more bubba scrubish than goon riding... to me its a sign if comfort and tossing the car/bike around like no biggie
