As long as people aren't doing drugs in front of the kids, I don't care what they are doing. This would include smelling like alcohol at the track. I've seen plenty of people toking up in the parking lot outside in their car, they aren't bothering me one bit.

I know there are some kids at our track that need to be on some a.d.d. Drugs though lol

Doesn't affect me in the slightest, never has. I can drink a full sized monster, and fall asleep like a baby 20 minutes later.

I've found the best is Viagra. I don't think the Viagra itself gives an advantage but combined with some sweatpants and a frequency clip it can be fairly distracting to the competition. Is that FM you're running or are you just happy to see me?

The best drug for Rc Racing is : Wrist and Forearm EXERCISE!
If done regularly, you will be able to control your nerves, and not have to take substances to do the job for you. Furthermore, taking drugs is never a good idea, even when the doctors prescribe them: there is always a better natural way to solve your issues !!!

There is no way any healthy person would need O2 to race rc cars.
If somebody had some oxygen deficiency, such as chronic lung disease then yes, but they'd be using it in every day life anyway.
A healthy person will have a blood oxygen saturation of 98-100%, breathing more oxygen does.... nothing.

Breathing bottled O2 on the sideline of a NFL field is understandable as it is intense physical exercise with a high drain on the respiratory system and will help bring sats back up faster, rc is not so physically demanding.

Easy there, I'm sure you mean well but holistic medicine is a farce

Listen to your doctor and your mechanic and your lawyer and your accountant, you hired them because you don't know as much as them

i am the EXACT same. caffeine has no affect on me either.

i wonder what it would be like to race after taking adderall. i would occasionally take one in college to help those light night cram sessions before test. the first time i took one, i couldn't believe how much it helped me concentrate.
