1) Be patient
2) Race yourself and the clock....not the other guys
3) Attitude...be happy even if your last in the Z main
4) Get as much track time as you can
5) Ask lots of questions and remember the answers


Hope this helps......

It helps to turn your car on and your radio on before trying to race. Also if nothing happens after you turn it on try connecting the battery.

the best kept secret in racing is.........well if I told you it would no longer be a secret, jk
matainence and practice, two things you can't win without. save the money you would use for useless hopups and use it to buy some good batteries and good tools.

i think keeping your car nice and tidy would be a good thing. have every led wire all strapped up or coiled up, dont just shove them inside slots in your car, think before you wire up your batteries and motor, which way would look the tidest. usually looking at adds and pro drivers, you could know whats the best way of wiring!

as for upgrades, get stuff that would improve the cars handling, not to make your car looks good, Al arms and C hubs are overkill, not only they bend when you crash and its a bitch to straighten, its 10 times heavier as plastic.

what did i miss?
