I seriously doubt it, Monster builds a mean car, but he is no Loeb!

I'll just guess you've never raced slot cars because they go off track all the time?!

Nope.. I was having too good of a time. There were so many paid photographers running around that I figured I would just enjoy theirs when thet hit the net instead of me worrying. I just kicked back and enjoyed the noise and show!

Here you go.





This is a masters course in driving. Very smooth, the car is never upset, never strained, just making speed.
It never seems to lose traction. It has traction control and probably yaw control. I think a couple of chatters but amazed at the lack of push or oversteer.

My favorite steer wheel. Straight bar 14 inch. Thumbs at 9 and 3. Nice crossovers. I think he pulled a hand off once

He is still blazing fast at the top. Normal turbo car would lose 1/3 hp and yet his shifts seem just as quick between gears. As I said once...I'm curious if this car has energy recapture technology, to use at high altitude.

The speed is deceptive, because of the smoothness.
