fast in the straight is for show!!!!!!!!!!!
fast in the corners is the way to go!!!!!!!!!

if you notice, both mod and stock motors has almost the same speed when going to a corner.

so faster corner speed is the way to go!!!!

That is a good point, & it's why at a number of tracks, the best stock racers are doing runs almost as fast as the best mod guys. The extra speed is nice, but most of the time, you end up with more than you can carry through corners(& the extra momentum frequently makes you overshoot apexes), so it can actually mess up your timing. With stocks, though, it's MUCH easier to settle into a rhythm & take just the right line EVERY time, so runs are MUCH more consistent. Also, stocks force you to become a more precise driver, because if you don't, you'll lose momentum in most corners, & with a limited powertrain, it's nearly imposible to get it all back without losing a LOT of time to your competitors. It's a matter of who makes the fewest mistakes, not who has the monster motor & batteries(though having good batteries & motors always helps, regardless of the class you run).....

That is very true. When I first started racing I thought that since I was running 2400's that I would come in last every time due to the power loss you feel at the end of a race. I soon found this not to be true. Granted I'm not winning mains or TQ'ing but it's because I need to work on my driving(lines, consistency), setup and clean racing not because of my equipment.

I don't know what you guys are running in stock over there, but here, the guys are running matched 3300's in stock as well as mod.

Sounds like your beef is with your track owner / race organizer. Don't knock an entire class of racing because it's not what you want to do. If what you say is true, and lots of guys want to run mod, then ask the organizer to run a stock class in addition to, and not in place of mod.
