Tip #1: To get better, you need to practice a lot. Run lots of battery packs and put in the time. Thereís no substitute.

Tip #2: Always run your tires in the same spot. As they wear out, they will develop a natural wear to them and break in specific to the direction they run in. Donít rotate them. Clean them after a run and put them back in their appropriate location. Mark the tires to make identifying them easier.

Tip #3: Make sure you have the right tires for the track. To speed up this process, reach out to some of the fast local drivers.

Tip #4: Itís a common mistake to use too much motor. When starting out, go with something like a stock motor until you learn to drive with consistency and throttle control.

Tip #5: To get you in the ballpark at a particular track, look at set-ups on the internet and download the set-up sheets so you can put it on your car. This will get you up to speed quicker.

Tip #6: To get a good bond when gluing tires, I start with motor spray and then use Simple Green to ensure the area Iím gluing is nice and clean.
