Racer’s View:

In full size, racing trucks are top-heavy bruisers doing a job that they were really not designed to do. Their slot racing siblings are accurate in every way! Corner entry speed is critical because with so much weight so high up the guide can very easily be overwhelmed trying to pull all that mass into a turn. It’s quite common to see trucks simply sail straight on at the end of a straight, but the satisfaction of completing 10 laps is worth the expenditure of nervous energy!
