Default Smooth Driving Videos WANTED

I am looking to improve my 1/8 driving and i am wondering if any one can point me in the direction of a good smooth driver that i could learn from watching. I feel as if the top pros, are just TOO fast to learn from for a normal guy. Does anyone have any links?

regards,

Christopher

Any video of the pros like maifield, tebo, king, drake, etc. are the definition of smooth driving.

I am the pink buggy, clutch shoe (broken spring) got hung up causing a flame out during pitting (or whenever the buggy came to a complete stop)

I am not a pro but I do drive "smooth" slow is fast , this was just a small club race.

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!!
