i've done that sorta thing in street racing, just bashing around with my old car.

I had stopped to realign the steering a bit better, and my mate comes tearing around, t-bones me squaer, and i watch my car go straight up, and straight down, landed on its wheels and all, and then i kept going,
(Mind u it was an electric car)
so yeah, it was as if it was just lifted straight up.

Default Driving Etiquette - Read & Learn

Guys;

From the RTO School of Driving:

1) If you can't be fast, Hack-em to last!
2) The only good Hack is one that breaks the other guy's car.
3) Keep as many cars on their lids as possible.
4) If there's going to be a first corner pile-up, make sure you caused it.
5) Never drive around someone, drive through them.
6) If you have no chance of winning the race, make sure no one else does either.
7) The best looking paint jobs are from hitting the other cars.

Now imagine racing agaist a Whole team of these Guys.

Default A really good question!

Why is it that none of the popular R/C Nitro magazines, including RC Nitro and R/C Car Action (at least here in the States) ever review Serpent cars? I'm finding reviews of the Mugen MTX-3 all over the place, with track tests, performance ratings, etc. only to 'note' that the Serpent 705 is in it's same class. I'd love an answer...

It may well be that Serpent has not submitted a car to be reviewed. The magazines don't purchase the cars and then put them together and review them (with some exceptions, sometimes they do but for special articles, etc.).

It may also be that they did submit a car but did it too late for the issues that are out. They usually want the car a couple of months before the issue - this gives them a week or so for driving and feeling out the car, a week to write the review and then to the layout dept for setting which takes time and then to the printer.

Wasn't the Mugen released before the new Serpent line? It was only reviewed last month (right?) and if it came out before the Serpent, we might expect to see it any time. . .

what about the guys that never seem be able to run a real line, (im all for using all the track that you need, but the pipes are not to be used to straighting out your car) you work and work them and finally able to get along side them and they drive you into the board and there the ones screaming hack.....

maybe Serpent just doesn't submit their cars for these magazines to review, since I also couldn't find one single review in back issues for the Impulse Pro or Street Spec.
