Day 1 of qualifying saw a morning 2 minute practice, 2 rounds of qualifying, and then 2.5 hours of open practice afterwards.
Buggy is up first. Q1 for me was a rough heat with me having a few crashes. Dakota ran really fast, but I still managed 2nd in the round. I felt ok, better than practice, but still not the speed I need.
Truggy Q1 was pretty good. I had decent speed and was close to Dakota all race. I lead for a little, but then I missed the right side double to chicane. I over jumped it a little 2 laps in a row. Ended up 2nd in that race too.
2nd was my number in Q1 and Q2. Buggy I had better pace than Q1, but I had a few goon moments. I dropped way back, but then got in a good groove and finished strong. Took another 2nd. Truggy was similar. Got another 2nd.
In the practice I tried a few little things and got pretty comfortable on the track. In hoping that Q3 and Q4 I can have more speed and pressure Dakota. Should be good.
Thanks for checking in and God Bless.
How’s running electric compare to nitro?
Kinda similar. The power is just different. Electric is more aggressive throttle and much more torque.
How’s running electric compared to nitro on a pro level?
