I get them but haven't figured out how to contain them yet. I drive great in practice nice and relaxed but once the jitters set in it tends to make me worse. I plan on trying ear buds sunday. Seems like that would help.

I agree with those who have said if you didn't get the jitters it wouldn't be fun. I too love the sound and smell of all those nitros clearing out right before the start. I get them worse when in the lead, if I'm catching the leader I'm fine, but once I pass them I get nervous. I'm really bad about looking at the other guys car too. If I hear the caller say 2nd place just crashed I try to sneek a peek to see how I'm going to benifit from it. lol If I keep that under control and focus on my laps then I do pretty good, if not sometimes it's not pretty. lol

Oh hellz yea ! Alcohol is big no no for racing won't even drink the day or two before big race. I can feel the effects from it on the track.


The faster and more experienced you get that shake starts going away.

I am able to control some of my Jitters racing 1/8 buggy but I started racing 2wd mod this winter and the jitters are killing me I'm fine in practice but once the qualifier starts I start shaking like a leaf?? I have tried chewing gum taking deep breaths ..Listing to music was too distracting I couldn't considerate on my lines.. I don't drink beer so maybe I'll start
