Don’t Chase the Per­fect Setup

RC Car Action - - PERFORMANCE TEST -

If you’re one of the guys who runs two laps, tweaks his setup, runs two more laps, tweaks it again, and so on all the way up to the first heat, stop. Once your car is work­ing well and doesn’t have any ob­vi­ous han­dling is­sues that need fix­ing, fo­cus on learn­ing the track. A driver with an 80 per­cent setup that has put in tons of prac­tice laps and can see the track with his eyes closed will be faster than an equally skilled driver with a 100 per­cent setup who doesn’t have the track wired.

A good setup and lots of track time will win more races than a per­fect setup and not enough track time.
