Sometime I think a well setting chassis is much more important than a super power engine. What is well setting chassis?

There is only one perfect line in any track. You can separate it to two parts. Accelerating line and decelerating line. Everyone all have to slow down on decelerating line for turn in,all you can do is slide or break. So I usual ignore this part because it is not the key point to win or lose except you have traction roll problem.

The accelerating line part is very important. Your car have to set very stable when you just pass apex and you can full open the throttle. I usual start to open the throttle slowly before apex. The on-power steering is very important. If your reaction not that fast,you have to let you car a little push when you leave the corner. When your car push out,all that you need to do is half-close your throttle,your cars head will turn in then full open the throttle again.

Top guy will set their car a bit oversteer because their finger is very smooth. They know how to control the second steering(throttle). And their steering always very smooth and small angle. Normal guys use steering to make a turn,top guys use weight transfer to make a turn. That is the different place. What engine or chassis they using sometime is not very important to top racers. Those top guys still can win except mechanical problem. It is all about business.

just my $0.02

If you win,that is because the driver is YOU. Not your engine or your kit. Study your car's advantageous position; know your engine's terminal setting and power band; plus your skillful fingers. You can easy beat any engine out there.

When I said beat, I meant have more power. I know driver skill is the biggest thing. More power = more speed and more skill required to control the power, this can result in more bad lines/crashes. Then less powerful engine wins race.

Run mod engine on practice day but use stock engine on raceday.You will get best result.
