How was the throttle/brake response? what about coasting? did they seem to "freewheel" forever and just roll or did they have artificial drag braking?

also wonder if the motors/batteries are being overworked and starting to heatsoak. RC cars do that, you can still have full battery charge but if the motor gets hot performance goes down.

Brakes worked well but I found out very quickly that they are basically useless cuz you don't need them. I never really let it coast too much so I don't remember how much drag they had but letting of for a split second to help rotate the car was all I needed. They seemed to slow down pretty well on their own because like I said the brake isn't really needed. They seem pretty torquey coming out of the corner cuz electric but then once the motors are super warm like you said they kinda fall flat and have no top end.

The first 5 laps felt QUICK.. coming around the right sweeper they have I felt like I was getting thrown to the left but then the motors would lose that little bit of power and the sweeper felt like a sunday drive and it was whack.

I've love to take a k2k kart on that track.

Also it's weird as shit to be racing and not hear any motors

No actual job offers but a whole bunch of "Hey I'm a recruiter and we have openings at insert location" Most of which where in this general area, but there was one guy I talked to who I told I was looking in GR and he forwarded my info this his co-worker who deals in that area and he sent me an email back in November. I just responded explaining my failure at email and asked him to send me any information he has on gr openings
