Anyone who's been on RCTech a reasonable amount of time knows that bert spews out a lot of BS.

Just like I said; My $30 is better spent on more practice. Pushing gearing doesn't help much if you are pushing into the boards and not driving clean.

Yeah, I'm working out a methodology for this. It involves running each fan and checking how high each one rates on the pain scale once i stick my finger in before it breaks

In all seriousness, a durability test would be great, but I can't afford to destroy all my stuff haha.

This is a bogus argument, no matter how good a driver you are, stuff happens.

Just this last weekend I was the cause of just such an incident. Coming around a corner I cut it a little too close and tapped a corner dot (plow disc) and rolled my USGT car, due to speed and angle the car rolled across the lane, tapped the timing loop, and ended up on the main straight as the pack was coming. Needless to say mayhem ensued. I was the driver at fault but others paid the penalty.

No one is perfect and that is why we have marshals. However you should marshal how you would LIKE TO BE marshaled. Common sense goes a long way and an attentive marshal can save your bacon as well (who's had a body tuck fixed during a race/qual?)
