Are you freaking kidding me? You never crash? You never misjudge? You never make an innocent mistake?

Making mistakes and attempting stuff is how you learn and get better. If you are making around the track during practice without ever crashing during your session, then you have reached your full potential or you aren't progressing your skill level any further.

Please point yourself out to everyone next time you are driving so we can be sure not to marshal your car/truck. You deserve to walk down and flip it over yourself. Retarded....

I guess some aren't that smart either. Go back a couple more posts. I made a simple comment about no one ever marshalling the big track. Didn't place judgement on anyone.

Someone else decided to let me know it was my fault for crashing, even though I really didn't say anything about having a problem crashing a lot.

Then he expanded on the topic with his 2 cents, and exaggerated things further.

Both of their posts added no value and were smart ass in context.

Oh, then you tell me to cool my jets, which would have been good advice. But you couldn't resist yourself and had to throw in the wiping ass comment.

Pathetic.

P.S. I still suckle my moms teet too...lame.

Can't wait to see this, going to be awesome. Hopefully it doesn't result in an overwhelming desire to get yet another RC. LOL

Sure getting around the track with out crashing is good.
But if you are scared to try new stuff in practice, then you have reached your potential.

My Zen theory on "The RC practice Circle of balance"

I crash over and over and over and over again. But I don't sweat it. Cause I know it's my fault for going too far and I've upset the "RC practice Circle of Balance". This ever so elusive balance involves pushing, crashing AND marshalling yourself WHEN you crash. These 3 items complete the "Circle of balance" of the RC ecosystem. :
- Tracks can't afford to have a paid marshall during practice. It's a business, so they want to make money not lose money. It's just a bonus if someone is gracious enough to marshall you for your own mishap.
- Drivers can't afford to push too hard or else they don't get to practice, they are just flipping their cars over every corner.
- But you gotta push or else you've reached your potential.

The best drivers have crashed 1000s of times more than any of us. So they have paid their dues. And have reached RC nirvana by embracing the circle instead of fighting it.

It's a simple but yet ever so delicate balance. If you disrupt this balance the future of RC practice will be destroyed forever.

Respect the balance...
