Default How to tell if you have enough power???

How you can tell when you have enough power is that When you can come out of a corner and lay black streaks until you need to break for the next corner then you have enough power!!!

Thats cause your gearing is way off. I'ed run a 88/22. Your puting to much torque in the motor. I coked my 15T motor ones but i was running 72/15.
