Secrets to Driving an R/C Car Faster
Here are some items I
picked up while reading "Inner Speed Secrets: Mental Strategies to
Maximize Your Racing Performance" book by Ross Bentley. Hope this helps
in our quest to drive faster.
- The real key to
winning races is not the race car, but you, the driver.
- And the key to your
performance, whether you win or lose, is your mind.
- Prime overall factor
determining you performance level in and out of the race car is mental.
- Race drivers work on
strategies for the mind.
- Visual processing
skills, psychomotor response times, dynamic awareness, muscle response
and control are no less critical components than the engineering and
set-up of a race car.
- Mind is the cause of
our performance in a race car.
- Concentration, focus,
consistency, control emotions.
- The goal is to get
100% out of yourself.
- Car Performance Level
(0 - 100%), Your SKill Level (0 - 100%), Your Performance
Level (0 - 100%).
And here are tips from
"Speed Secrets 4: Engineering the
Driver" by Ross Bentley.
- A confident driver in
a less than perfect race car will be
faster than an unconfident driver in a perfect race car.
From "Speed Secrets 2":
- If your car is not
handling well during a race, adapt your
driving to best suit the way it is handling.
- Car control skills,
speed sensing, traction sensing,
consistency, strength and endurance.
