Today’s Tip – Standing Starts: Open Differential

Race starts are a great time to make up positions. Being good off the line gives you a distinct advantage.

If your car has an open differential you need to manage wheelspin so balance relatively low revs with clutch slip until you have the momentum to close the clutch completely. If you are too aggressive you will start one wheel spinning and you will loose all your speed and momentum as all the power is spun away through that one wheel.
