Default Why am I so good and fast? I cant find worthy competition without giving handicap!

I am having a little problem here. I run a xxxt mf2, promatch 3600 1.2v, GTB 5.5 and M8 with spektrum.

When I race at my local track my truck is so fast i must offer handicaps to the other drivers such as:

1. I pit stop EVERY lap to dust off my body and clean the wheels.
2. I drive all straights with my eyes shut and do not open them till i hear my
truck crash into the wall
3. I interlace my receiver wires with the esc wires to induce maximum
glitching and radio interferance
4. I only run foam slicks on the rear wheels (which i also dunk in crisco
cooking oil pre-race so i cannot hookup)
5. Control my car and use my M8 radio using my feet!

Even with all these handicaps i still usually place first place except when someone gets really lucky. Anyone out there having this same problem?

It helps when the competition isn't make believe or other members of the nut house.

Come on, guys. He's obviously asking for some input, right? Let's help him out....I'll go first.

Turn around (on the drivers stand) and look into a mirror while driving. You could even make it multiple, smaller mirrors...kinda like a bee-eye. That should help your competition a bit.

LOL. well some of you guys got my humor. Liked the input. I havent tried driving upside down. You know what would be really funny though if you really did it. Get on the drivers stand for your race with a full face helmet on and gloves! That would be hilarious!
