WHEN IT COMES TO RAC­ING,

there are gen­er­ally two classes you can com­pete in: Mod­i­fied and Stock. In the Mod­i­fied class, the doors are ba­si­cally open and you can do what you have to do to win, but in the Stock class, the play­ing field is “lev­eled” by the mo­tor that you run. A 17.5-turn mo­tor has been cho­sen as the stock mo­tor of the brush­less-mo­tor world that we live in, and it is sup­posed to pro­vide every­one with the same level of per­for­mance. So that means that you have to fo­cus on your driv­ing and setup skills to be a step above the rest. All you have to do is drive the right line and make sure you fol­low a setup sheet, right? Well, that’s part of it. But there’s more that you can do to make your stock ve­hi­cle get around the track, and I’m here to show you how. Let’s get to work and speed up that stock racer.
