Default Backup car

Do most of the top drivers have 2 cars one to run practice laps before the race and one for actual competition.

I find myself not using all the practice time available before the race starts because I do not want to risk damaging something or puting extra wear on components.

Default The Pros

The Pros have a team .....one guy on motors, one on batteries and one on chasssis and setup. Average Joes usually run two identical cars with a ton of extra parts.

Most of the time if a pro has two cars it's not neccessarily for having one for practice and one for racing... most of the time it's because they are setup drastically differently and it's better to have two cars with different setups on them instead of having only one car and having to make drastic setup changes while at the track...

It's true wear becomes an issue...but most of the time the cars get thouroughly rebuilt between practice and racing.

Steve - I'm applying for a Team Steve sponsorship, please check your PM's (if there any space left on the team ).

You going to have any more Team Steve stickers at the nats? I think I would have done better at Vegas if I had those stickers on my car .
