I remember the days when lipo was new and guys would run 4+oz under their...

If the car is jumping nose high on a particular jump, you can jab the brake just after takeoff. The rear wheels should still be spinning quickly enough to bring the nose down. 4wd cars are more...

Time lost is time lost, whether that’s through crashing or slower tires. One does not negate the other. Prepped tires / more traction can also mean less crashing if you’re not getting wheel spin off...
