Default Video Series Suggestion


I believe it would be helpfull if an experienced driver or group of drivers create a video series of a setup guide at vaious styles tracks. For example they can show us what do they look first when going at a track, tires lets say, then they be gin with a standard setup and from there they change certain aspects of the car to reach their driving style.

Of course this could go both for 1/8 buggies and truggies and even further there could be guides for different buggies and different tracks.

If there was suck a DVD series I would definately buy one

This would be an awesome idea. There really isn't a comprehensive "tutorial" for folks just starting out, or for those who have some experience, but are trying to take their game to the next level. A video like this would almost be like an RC "coach" of sorts.

If some enterprising individual got ambitious, it would be great to see this as a group discussion led by a few of the more experienced drivers (Drake, Lutz, Tebo, Saxon), so that as each one was talking, the others could build on what was being said.

I paid for the Worlds DVD, and that was just for a fun to watch video....I wouldn't hesitate to buy a video like this if one was made!

Yes but to sell, the videos need to be from Well known Factory Drivers or Engine designers.

These are something like what your talking about. Adam Drake is using his Losi buggy as the example but he explains each set up point and that is the same for all buggies. May not be exactly what your looking for but there free!
