How about when the marshall steps on & breaks your car trying to help another vehicle

How about when you do a great qualifier and either pole or 2nd and you just know on the start of the main some idiot will crash you by the second corner and you will start up in last.

rcracenut, that's what happened to me this past weekend at the Super Regionals, but to add to it my radio was glitching. Won all the qualifiers & blew the main!

As for plain wrong can't agree with that, must be different in other countries then. Here if they are good enough to lap you then they are good enough to pass without the one being past having to give up their racing line.

In heats for sure but in finals time is unimportant and only placings really matter after all.

Mabuchi 540, I am sorry but you have no idea what you are talking about. It is not like that at all in New Zealand. When someone is lapping you, you are expected to move of line for them and people will get very angry if you don't. The people that are doing the lapping even call out "LAPPING"

This is fair enough, because if you are being lapped you are obiously alot slower.

WHAT SCARES ME?

Finishing 10th in the A-Main.

Having the car handling go away for the A-main.

Having a brush hang-up.

Having no marshals.

Taken out by a lapped car.

Somebody turning their radio during my race.

Burning myself out from this Awesome Hobby!

WHAT DOESN't SCARE ME?
Hacks don't;
I just get mad at them.

Novice drivers don't;
I understand where they are at.
I usually work around them which probably makes me a better driver.

B-main or lower, well..... at least I can still race to win.

The scary thing for me at the moment is having to leave onroad as turnouts are gettin smaller these days. This season race participants are barely less than 5 racers, sometime only two racers duke it out in the final !
