And trust me about tire pressures. This is what happens when you screw that part up and drive like a lunatic. haha

...

You can see the white cloud of air escaping from the tire at the exact moment of impact. Lost two tires that day. Luckily TravesD20 is a super stud and loaned me his other spare. I bought an extra set of wheels and tires after that event. haha

Just remember, first and foremost. Have fun.

Learn how the car behaves. It may sound cheesy, but try to sense what the car is doing. That way the next time you feel that exact same thing, you'll remember what you need to do to correct it before you spin.

But have fun. And throw some learning and experimentation in there.

You can check this out, too. Vid is kinda long and the music is lame, but it was my first attempt at a vid. haha First three runs are one course, and the second three runs are a different version of the course. First course is more technical, second is more fast and sweepy.
