actually you dont need jard tebo or adam drake to go there n kick his ass all you need is practice try to visit the track like 2-3 times a week , practice w/ the guys that you think that faster than you................honestly when i start on this hobby i like to watch those fast guys practice i try to watch & remember there driving style ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY APPLY THE GAS/ THROTTLE or blipping the gas lol on every corner ,every section see how they approach the jumps always ,& if its the race day remember your line always sometimes we commit driving error or mechanical prob. but its really part of it even pro-drivers they struggle too they flip they roll period , ..............who knows by tomorrow you can kick him

More Decals on your car should do it!

I have been told that practicing with electric offroad (or even onroad) can be huge for making you a faster driver. I'm probably going to do it for the offseason to try to sharpen my skills.

Modified 2wd buggy is a great class to teach you how to drive offroad really well.

I would assume so, since the power is so instantaneous and only in the rear wheels. That's what I'm thinking of doing in the winter.

concentrate on your driving line and your braking points. drive whatever speed you need to stay on that line, even if it is slower. with time the speed will come. races are won by driving a clean line period.

tell that greek mallacca to stay home next race and all will be well

Make sure you video tape this strategy, and post it on here!

I'd like to see the outcome.

I also have to agree with a couple of points already given. Learning to drive smooth with your throttle can make a big difference in fuel economy and corner speed. A local racer who is very fast can get much longer runs for each of his tanks because he's smooth on the throttle even while being fast on the track. Alot of people pick up throttle blipping hard acceleration as a bad habbit that eats up extra fuel and sometimes can add time to your laps. All this can add up to less fuel stops and faster lap times.

In addition, 1/12 on road also teaches you to drive fast and smooth on the throttle to keep up and last with only 4 cells. It also quickens your reflexes to a point and can make you a faster driver.
2wd off road can also make you faster due to what others had mentioned. Learning to drive with more power than you need can always help you to drive better, faster and more smoothly.

Another thing is learning to use brakes and when to use them. Alot of drivers also had issues with using brakes and when to use them. Also, how to setup your brake bias to suit your driving style and track.

Good luck.
