quite a bit...but mainly just go for fun. don't worry to much about getting the most out of the car. ask lots of questions too...people at tracks are there to help.

best tip i can tell you for lining up though...creep up to the light. when the first one turns on stop...then let it roll forward until the second light flips and stop.

Thanks and yeah some people say street tires don't need to be warmed up since the track is already sticky as hell, they say avoid the water box
