I’Ve. Never done rc car racing i’ve, the only driving i’ve ever done is basically ruining all of winston’s equipment, but mr jamie farrell, jammer fpv has gone completely overboard on rc car race and he’s expressed willingness to take me under his wing and teach me how to race. In the rc car world, he’s got equipment for me that i can borrow and we’re going to get there and attempt to to compete in rc car racing with no practice. No pre planning so it’s going to be interesting to see how that goes. Muziek Applaus, Muziek, Muziek Applaus, Muziek, Applaus, Muziek, so it’ll be interesting to see how how fast he progresses because it’s all about hand, eye coordination with anything and he’s. Uiteraard, a world champion with hand eye coordination, so two dimensional turning versus sticks. I think he’ll he’ll get it really quick. Tonight, i’m gon na put him in the novice classic and i’m, not worried if it’s just a wednesday night club race. So if he breaks it and i can’t go out and embrace it, no big deal Music Music. Dus, first of all really fun exactly as long as i thought it was going to be exactly as hard as i thought i was going to be i having some trouble with some of the depth perception stuff so like especially on the big back uh long wide Open throttle section like i feel, like i’m gon na clip the rail at any given moment.
Jb sorry it’s hard it’s, Alsof ik., not trying to keep up i’m trying to go slow. Do my own thing and i’m still just every other turn just go right into the wall. I’M uh strategically marshaling for a bit so that people have more patience with me. As i completely ruined their night of racing Applause, oh my gosh just keep flipping over i’m trying to get it nice and smooth dialed like just trying to get that consistency in there. Where, like i know, i can hit us i’m, not i don’t like know what my lap times are i’m trying to just like try not to rush try to take advantage of straights, where i cannot do stuff like that. A couple times, i’ve found where i have some rear end instability, where i actually like make it spin out for the most part, it’d just be like undershooting or overshooting corners and then not quite getting the jump or just like clipping something and flipping it over. Like even on the big sweeper, i feel like i’m still messing it up, see like that, like i just run into something for no reason. Bedankt. Oke. That works big shortcut there. We gaan.. Oke, let’s just get some good clean laps here it always ends up having more searing ability than i think, and i keep messing it up because of that. Goed, you can see just how awkward i am like trying to get it around corners and stuff like that.
Every once in a while, i hit a good rhythm but it’s, not consistent that i am hitting rhythm yeah. Look at that trick. Nope definitely nervous definitely still crashing, even though it’s just warm up, which is not good yeah. I need to not crash. Oh, ik ben.. Sorry this is exciting: p3 lando give me strength, is that’s. My first crash Music i’m, so focused dude Music. I know it’s so long to think to keep focused i’m pretty sure, i’m running p2 behind that white car and i keep kind of getting a little bit closer when he crashes but i’m, not catching him on my own merit. Nee, oh Muziek! Nee, Ik weet het niet. I think that was p2 it’s funny to see how nervous you are because at one point like i saw you kind of shake a little bit like you just seem to go from a world champ to being nervous up there with a bunch of novice guys. Het is geweldig., Muziek, no matter what so that was the end of my first run. I think p2. Maybe yeah definitely as hard as i thought it was gon na be uh. There was one guy that was just out front like crushing it, and i was trying to kind of i wasn’t even trying to keep up with him. I was on his lead left for a while, eventually had a crash and spun around and he caught up with me, but that was really fun i wanted.
I wish there was like a closer battle because, like i think i was, i was in third for a bit and i went back into p2 so, like i wanted to see what was going on, i know you’re in second the whole time. I think i i heard third for a bit, but i think i got him. I think he wrecked. He was first the whole time yeah, but you could have caught him. I know i know no. I saw him wreck and i started panicking i’m, like there’s a chance that i’d. Ah, i wanted a wind, but p2 is good enough. Music well jump in the gun there. Oh there you go shoot shoot shoot shoot! Oh, Nee! Nee! Nee! Nee! Nee! Ik ben.! So badly! In third now i’m about to get lap by first and then i flip again, this is like four times one left. Okay focus focus, focus focus i almost made a lap. I just got eaten that’s right what in the world every time on that spot i’m. In second now because the first place is out, but i don’t think i’m gon na catch, so i pulled in second place, but uh only because first place crashed and broke their car and uh yeah. It was way less consistent than even the first one. I think i felt like i could go faster tried and then just was all over the place. It was a miserable failure, but it was fun and i like there were a couple of good laughs where i was like.
Oke, i got into this rhythm and then i fall out of my rhythm and i get back in my rhythm, um gosh it’s hard it’s so hard to just be consistent with everything from across the room. I got a marshall, so see you guys, i’m thinking, Ik ben. Already crashing in practice and the pressure’s not on yet yeah so we’re heading into the final round. Apparently i qualified in the a main there’s only one main but i’ll take it. I got a shot at second place, maybe third good podium on my first race here who knows trying to keep it smooth, that’s my rival right there, oh yep see that’s what happens when i overthink it all right go for the pokemon. Oh, my gosh didn’t even make it through the first turn. Sorry about that, i can’t see no come on come on, Oh, Kom nou, Kom nou, keep it clean, no dude. My knees are shaking just trying to keep it together, keep it together. Oh dat is., not together. Oh, Nee, sorry, i will not get lapped, i will not get laughed, i will not get left. Oh, i got laughed second place my standard position. Ah, i i was in first for like a solid few seconds, yeah no like like like for two minutes or something like that, and i just kept making little mistakes and the guy that got first deserves it like he is so much faster than me, Maar, like I was just like there’s a chance that i just like slowly watch that lead disappears over each level, but come on.
Please go faster, go faster, like my knees were like, like i kept like locking my knees like they were like they’re like i was trying to hyper, extend them backwards like i was so like focused and in the zone. Het was alsof., oh and then i hear jamie go. You got a 13 second lead just be nice and smooth bam crash into the wall like right here, Zie. Look they had it all prepared for me, oh like but like when he started coming back for me to like take that place. For me i was just like no we’re holding in there getting it i’m pulling in, and oh that was fun. That was so good. Freshening up the shocks after nerd drove it. Did he break anything? Nee, he didn’t break anything i’m. Uh i’m, proud of him for not breaking nothing, because i got to go right back out and running Music. OK, second place in my first ever rc car race. I uh didn’t really expect that to have i like, because we we do a little bit of rc cars like i’d steal, winston’s controller and like break his stuff all the time, and i did not really think that i would be able to pull that off. But it was really fun. I got super lucky. I think there was a guy who was running like a white traxxas that i think it broke on him in the race, and so i kind of got a little bit lucky there, because he was definitely faster than me, and i was in first for a bit.
But i wasn’t quite able to hold on to it, but dude how much fun was that it was so like when i was. I was talking to george uh, one of the guy, who was running basically second place the whole night to jamie and the amaze. And what i said to him was: it was so hard to get into the flow and then once you’re into the flow. If you get bumped out of your flow it’s really hard to recover and get kind of consistent again and so like there was a lap in heat too, where i literally crashed like four or five times in the same lap, and it was all because i was Just so far out of my just i got so messed up by how each flow booting pushed me out of my comfort zone. I need to work on consistency. I need to get comfortable with the controls right because i’m, trying to you know, do this and it’s. Third person view and all this stuff, the depth perception is a little bit harder, but oh my gosh, it was fun. I really want to get one of those tracks to slash like the stock racing that they had there, because that looked like fun. It just looked like bumper cars and then a little bit of racing, so it was fun, but thanks so much to indie rc for letting us come and crash the place, bring a bunch of cameras and all that good stuff.
We flew city whoops. It was an amazing time.
