Going into this weekend's race I'm looking at more than just the mechanics of the car but focusing on my driving. I have been doing a good bit of research on how to make the most of the car through driving and came upon a few realizations:
- transfer weight evenly and smoothly to prevent tire overheat/loss of traction and to also maximize the traction in the tire
- slow in, fast out! Make lines that set me up to get out of the corner fast but also setup for the next turn
- smooth is fast, without being too slow
Car is working well and I will be testing the Spec-R gear diff this weekend with 1K oil.
Last weekend was my first experience with modified and it was super fun! I ran a Trinity/Epic Duo3 10.5 with tons of timing in my Tekin speed control but I still feel like a lower wind motor without all the crazy timing is best. The boost from the Tekin makes it feel unnatural and edgy while I think a 5.5 or 5.0 without boost will be much smoother.
