    a setup suspension? looks an awful lot like he was breaking traction to me. hell of a good "setup". :screwy:

    i got into a group of these ricer "drifters" once, and they were talking about modding the engine for more power, regearing, suspension setup, and all kinds of other bs. the idea of a good suspension setup is to put the power to the ground, not smoke the tires every time you take a curve.

    obvioulsy thje idea of a good suspension setup is to get the power to the ground but its all in context. in this case its a good suspension for letting the tires break loose...controllably...:rolleyes:

    Mayhap for a road racing car that is true Beater, but having said that the Sprint Car drivers of the world as well as the Rally Car drivers (who do drive on asphalt pretty often) of the world might differ with you.

    The car control of that guy is awesome. How anyone can do that repeatedly without having g-forces effecting them is beyond me.

    Wow, I've always wanted to buy a gas powered RC car, never could afford one though. I guess I'll have to stick with jekguistk5 and my Nikko! :)

    I meant that he must have the suspension set up for it to get loose like that, I would say that he had a drag brake on it, but that would cause it to get loose off the gas and he was definatly on it when it was gettin all loosey goosey
