RC TIPS

Slippery Track
Detune your car. For example, 2005 2wd off-road champ
Neil Cragg used 5-cell packs.

Battery Choice
For high speed tracks, look for batteries with higher voltage.
For technical tracks, look for batteries with low internal
resistance (IR).

Digital Calipers
1 or 2 millimeters difference in shock length makes a big
difference on track performance. If you're serious about
racing, buy digital calipers to make sure you're car is
properly set up.
