If a slower guy wants to race with the faster guys and it is possible then it is his choice even if the faster guys don't want it.
I hate it if faster guys outrule others.

I do. I stand no chance Iíve getting better then 4rh. Unless they all crash and break. Donít care. At one point there were 4 fast guys and 5 of us new to racing. The 5 of us had our own battles. Then one by one they stopped racing. Wasnít from motor expenses or even losing. Regular life got in the way. Couple changed jobs, kids had a Saturday activity. So I race against my previous times. The others encourage me to not just get out the way any more. Make them work for their pass. Except the final. Then I let them go.

You are supposed to get out of the way just enough to follow the faster guys closely in order to record their racing line and racing pace, then go setup your car to keep that same recorded pace: it's all in your mind....You'll be much closer to these fast guys if you run with them rather then running with the slower guys, but the most important thing is to keep getting informed about the latest and greatest ideas here on Rctech with "moi", and then you'll beat most of the fast guys.......

oh I try to follow them as close as can. Itís a experience thing. They have 20 years of racing, I have 20 racedays. I could trade cars with them and theyíd still be ahead of me. Watched one do laps with my F1. Car heís never driven and controller heíd never used, in 5 laps he did laps that 2 years later I still havenít caught up with.

Unfortunately Iím the only ďnew racerĒ left in the group. Maybe next summer that will change, but that long way off.

Hopefully I wonít go 30+ weeks without racing. Like last winter. Though thatís already not looking good.

Ouch. Iíve given up for this year. Iíll try again after the new year. Unfortunately itís a health situation that I have no control over. Heading towards the end, unfortunately thereís only one outcome.
