Well all have pet peeves and different levels of them. A lot of us spend time at the track and see lots of things that just aren’t right. I go to the track every chance I get to run some laps with my RC cars and trucks and have and have a good time while doing it. But every time I go to the track there’s always something going on there that makes me ask myself why. Here are just some of the thinks that make me crazy when I see them at the track. Do you have any to add to the list?
Starter box guy
There’s no need to run your nitro car on the starter box all day. You have to tune it on the track, not on your box. As much as I love nitro I don’t like to hear an engine running all day.
Yelling at the turn marshal guy
You put yourself there, so don’t get mad at the turn marshal when he doesn’t get to your vehicle as fast as you think he should.
The guy who won’t move out of the way
If you’re slower than the other guys on the track move over so they can get by. You may catch them and even pass them in a lap or two when they crash.
The guy who runs his car or truck while standing on the track.
Uh… yeah, you block the track for the rest of the guys who are using the driver’s stand and make it harder to get around the track. And you may even get hit because of it.
The guy who complains about everything
There’s one at every track. Things are never run the way he wants them to be run. Well, you can leave. It’s not a world championship and we’re not winning a million dollars to win at the local race track. Take it easy!
