At a big offroad race my buddy was using a 14 turn in his 2wd buggy, he had our other buddy rebuild his motor for him, but he rebuilt it with a 6 turn with a lot of timing, when he went to race, he couldnt control it.

Ive seen the CA'ing drivers feet to drivers stand done before....thats great, until the driver wrenches his back....

Another thing done at the local track: two guys sprayed the pavement under each others pits with traction compound. Their shoes were sticking to the blacktop all day long.

Default Solder motor wires on backwards

Solder motor wires on backwards. Reverse throttle servo direction on radio. May only work with reversible ESC. Not good on ESC or motor. Runs slow and things get hot. A guy I know at our track did something like this to himself by mistake !

I think I might have been at that race. I was wondering if that would come off !!!

Another one I think would work is loosening some chassis screws. When this happens "naturally" it causes some weird handling stuff to happen.

Yeah you were there. There are pictures somewhere that luckily havent been made public. I had to remind the photography that I had control of their business's website and I think they found it in their best interest not to share them

Ouch! One of our local guys is sponsored by Surge. He was pretty angry the day he saw me using a Surge motor to power my lathe.

Tagging someone's car with funny vinyl is always good fun.
