Ed next time I make it up I see what I can think of to make your car better for you. Alot of times you can shave seconds of your car with the line you run and how close you can get to the corners without hitting them. Another thing is to make sure the car don't slide sideways too much as it bogs down the motor and you loose a few tenths.

I also use the videos to scout out the competition and contemplate what its going to take the next week. I've concluded after watching your car that I need another lap or two. I'm just not sure how to get there!

One thing for sure, speed is contagious. The more fast guys we can compete with, the faster we will all go.
ed,

It will be if you keep running that Losi car. In all seriousness I'm running 30 laps because I'm getting about perfectly clean runs and guys are letting me get by so some of it is also the drivers that I'm racing with that help to make that happen. If guys wouldn't help me out some it would be very difficult for me to run like that so alot goes to the others racers being courtious.

The Pit man made all the difference D4manJ/K that was a real good race HotRod was coming hard but you didn't panic and kept your cool sort of (the wheely down the straight was cool).

CR, just a note to let you know your buggy is dialed inside too all I did was take the front swaybar off and it was hooked up.

morris I thought your car had pretty good rip in the straight and actually more than I had but you need tighter lines in the infield and a little more consistant. I don't think your car is far off at all.

yea i do drive it hard as hell.but when i try to look up the tighter way around the infeild it feels as if a loose rather than gain speed.
plus my car feels pretty pushy in the infeild.

im going to be putting the one-way in the car and make alot of different changes to see how it will work then....if it does work better good for me.if it dousnt i will just go back to square one.

Cool keep trying stuff as it is the only way to figure stuff out. Take notes of what you tried if you can so you know what works and what don't.

Whos in for more touring car this weekend? Looks like I might be able to make it up once again to run. Bad thing is I will get home by 2AM and I have a 8AM appointment for my real job and then work all day at my buddies hobbyshop since they are going out of town. Damn I feel tired thinking about it.
