Don't forget about Pavidis. Talk about smooth driving.....

Whether a pro drives strapped or smooth matters less than some may think. Either way, the top guys are hitting lines consistently and carrying a ton of corner speed. I see some guys use the idea of driving strapped as a good rationale for being all over the track. fail.

this is what happened to josh hill from watching video of trey. Just go to your local track and turn laps and when you think your done turn more laps. Have someone video tape you and learn from your mistakes remember nose comes up you hit the brakes nose goes down you hit the gas!!
Haha I forgot about Josh Hills goon riding skills. Great to watch. But yeah it would be nice to scrub speed comfortably with the RC car,Like the MXers do. and not just wigglin the wheels to look cool. I do see some guys do that too, And yes Ive tried to with not much success.

I thought it looked pretty good, my bad

Jesse Robbers is smooth. He doesn't look extremely fast but his lap times are like

not smooth:

tebo always hits his marks, pay attention to how slow he goes in the off camber. mayfield makes the car fast out of sheer will.

Default This is THE video...

All the other videos are great, but this one is by far the BEST example of SMOOTH driving. Enjoy!

Wow! If that's smooth I need to come race at the Hut sometime. Wow. That looks like a beginner hack fest to me. Not even close to smooth.

dude its offroad not onroad but i am talking to the track directers about using diffrent dirt though.

like i said none of us are pros theres gone to be hacking truggy or buggy.

you dint see the guy in first place with the mugen truggy he was smooth for a club driver.

if you come during the spring time you will like it the program is run good and tight !

IMO, if Maifield went to another chassis and engine, he would easily win the worlds. Face it, AE RC8 chassis is outdated tech/geometry and doesnt work. I tried it and its pitiful how bad it jumps. The truggy is pretty good though, and you can see it inhis results. The buggy SUCKS.
