Prac­tice with Pur­pose

RC Car Action - - PERFORMANCE TEST -

Don’t just mind­lessly turn laps dur­ing prac­tice time. Have a plan. Do you need to mas­ter a cer­tain sec­tion? Do you want to try dif­fer­ent lines to see if they’re faster? Do you sim­ply need to learn the track lay­out so that your in­puts be­come re­flex­ive? When you take the stand, you should be work­ing to­ward a goal. And re­mem­ber, prac­tice is not a race. While chas­ing down the guy ahead of you can some­times be good prac­tice, it can also be a dis­trac­tion from what you’re ac­tu­ally try­ing to achieve with your prac­tice time.

It can get hec­tic in the pits! Put all your at­ten­tion on your car, and if you need help, don’t be afraid to ask a sea­soned racer. 36

With a good plan in hand and tak­ing care of car setup and tire needs, your un­di­vided at­ten­tion can be left solely for driv­ing.
