I agree on that advice. Try to drive at a pace where you can get around the track without crashing even if that means not taking the full jumps like a triple. Just take the double and get a lap in without crashing. When I did this I had the fastest lap times,. When I tried to push the limits I crashed more and had overall slower lap times.
At the track that I race they ask drivers to marshal the track at least one race when you're not racing and this puts a lot of stress on the amount of set up time between races. For this reason I prefer to have a separate pack for each race. If I expect 3 races then I bring 3 batteries.

2 packs minimum. 3 is better. A dual Port charger is an even bigger win.

Well thanks to the order from the governor basically closing the track for 30 days my debut will have to wait until April or May before I go under the knife for ankle surgery this summer. Maybe I can get VRC on my laptop in the meanwhile...
