A Few More Important Things you Should Know
Before you ever go racing with someone check your battries. Get the kind you can check with your fingers like Duracell Ultra. Cause here is my story...My car goes very fast this is true, I have been working on my nitro sport making it good and such. But one day i was in a huge empty parking lot in Florida *Visiting my Granny* and i was going half speed which is very fast for me i have a good HPI engine and my car stopped responding. Now this is right next to the highway so cars are going by when the cars batteries went bad it was in a slow turn and Luckily when I was running out there to get it it hit a pole going good speed but I never messed anything up and i always check my battries from now on.
Another thing i recommend doing is if you lose body clips alot put fishing string on them and tie it to the car and the other end to the body clip.. You will never lose it again except for the few times you do...
I hope this helps guys. Also another thing, when you do jumps hit the brakes when your in mid air.. it helps not strip tranmission/spur/clutch bell gears ...

Kevin: you don't have to get duracell batteries to "see" how much voltage you have left. get a multimeter(starts at $10) and you can check your voltage that way. It is better and you can see if you want to chance it or replace the batteries. Another thing let go of the thorotle in mid air do not use the brakes or gas unless you need to adjust how you are going to land. Happy offroading.
