Slow Is Fast

RC Car Action - - PERFORMANCE TEST -

The fastest car on the track will put in the slow­est lap times if the driver can’t keep it off its roof and away from the pipes. Driv­ing faster than your abil­ity to con­trol the car pre­cisely will re­sult in longer lap times, even if it feels faster. Try this ex­per­i­ment: Time your­self for 10 laps, driv­ing as fast as you can from turn to turn; then time 10 more laps, go­ing only as fast as you can man­age with­out mak­ing mis­takes, whether a “mis­take” means hit­ting the boards or just over­shoot­ing the turns. Dol­lars to donuts, your “slow” laps will be faster over­all.

Driv­ing faster than your abil­ity to con­trol the car pre­cisely will slow you down, not speed you up.
