Default Racing skills question.

I was just wondering what everyone thought about what type of racing really improves your onroad driving skills? My goal is to improve my sedan racing, but if there was something else that would improve my skills faster, I would come back to sedan later. Any thoughts on this?

Electric 2wd mod buggies are great for fine-tuning your skills as well.

12th scale! It really builds up the skills IMO. Doesn't matter what you run in it, just run it

The other thing that builds DA SKILLZ is when you race against people in the same boat as you (skill wise) or a bit better. This way you are always being pushed

1/12th scale, 2wd buggy and 4wd buggy since the layouts of the cars are usually similar, but now you are going 3d.

1/12 racing for sure. Especially mod, takes alot of skill and control to get these around the track at a fast pace and still make runtime.

I find 12th scale stock really boring. 12th scale mod on the other hand is hella fun

Default 12 scales

Yehp I gotta agree here. 12th scale will help you alot. If you can drive one hard clean and fast u can drive nething fast. That and just pay attention to what ure doing(racing) and concentrate.
