Yeah... practice and race. If you can go to your local track and see if they have a novice class. That way you can learn to drive your car with other ppl that are learning also.

Biggest mistake I made was too much steering. Meaning I jerked the wheel from lock to lick to much Learn a little finesse and like mentioned not too much throttle and you will do fine. We all had to start somewhere! When you get to a race and run a few laps ask a local racer for advice on what you should look at to help improve your driving.

Good Luck!

Set your max throttle to 50% on the car until you have figured out the left/right bit! and remember...the controls are proportional not digital ON/OFF, LEFT/RIGHT......one last thing.....although you are 'remote' from the car if you crash and break it, it still hurts......your pocket!!!

Good Luck....and make sure you are having FUN!!!!! If not get out of RC cars!!
