Thanks Manti, I still learning to take those corners effectively..currently i always slide into corner and I know it is not that effective way to do it. And always wonder how good driver can take that sharp corner after long most straight line. If me i always end up with very big corner or I will push brake and get trouble to accelerate after that!.. Need practise.

Manticore: Those cars you were practicing with on your video; were they electric cars cause I can only hear another nitro car other than yours. There was a lot of cars on the track and it was too quite for me

That car on the straight was practically standing still when you passed him up. He probably had a stock motor on his ride.

No,this is a wrong observation.

Everything looks like it's standing still when you have MTO power!
