Guys, you're missing the most important one...




A haircut is going to save AT LEAST 3/10ths on your way to the rostrum when you're late for your race...

Aerodynamics....

Most important how you hold the controller, it should look racey and better get that perfect spot on the stand so you can upset the person next to you who complains about the controller in their face cause your standing in their spot and the comment of why didnt you get a spectrum that antenna nearly hit me 3 times!!!!!!

Blue, gold, purple or black anodized screws, each depends on the right track temperature, but the right combo will put you in front!

Tuck your Elbows!!!

Just as if you were shooting a rifle standing, tuck your elbows for better steeriing support not to mention that mean-clean low drag look.

On a serious note, a nice new slab of lexan on your car can quicken your pace because you don't won't to crash as bad.

I strongly recommend sanding a flat spot on your foam tires, then placing that side face down on the carpet. Increased tire patch, guaranteed holeshot.

The easiest way to improve your lap times is to make sure your car is consistant. Take all the proper maintanance measures to insure that the car is running the right setup & is as slop free as possible. This will allow you to better tune & race your car. The other way to get faster is to try to keep up with the Jones' on the track. If your car is properly setup then it will be capable of doing everything their car is doing.

If you are having trouble at a certain corner or section of the track, marshal that section. It will give you a different perspective on how to complete that part and that always helps to shave a little bit of time off.

It's always going to be a good day when you show up to the track with your car in a pile of parts. Something about that mad thrash to get done and still have minute to check your endpoints before your qualifier. That adrenaline rush really get the juices flowing.
