I just purchased a Team Associated SC10. I bought an extra lipo battery. I really want to go to the tracks that are in my area. Any tips or advice for a new guy? I haven't driven an rc car since I was 9, which was 30 years ago.


Thanks,
RD

Put one hand on the steering wheel and one finger on the throttle trigger and have fun

Sounds good. I guess just going to the track and doing it is where I am going to learn.

the best thing to do is to get regular practice, work on your racing line, but the thing that usually gets me is not judging a corner right, and i end up wasting so much time!

don't worry about speed too much yet, but more handling.

For the SC10, you'd be better off asking for help in the Off-Road forum, instead of the On-Road section.

Far too obvious for Sean Penn..... Isn't there some secret surfer wisdom available for this situation?

What Jefferson was saying was, Hey! You know, we left this England place 'cause it was bogus; so if we don't get some cool rules ourselves - pronto - we'll just be bogus too! Get it?

All I need are some tasty waves, a cool buzz, and I'm fine.
