    "********** Track Guide **********
    Welcome to Wild Horse! This track is very tight and technical, so being very smooth and precise will be the key to quick laps.

    To start the lap, you jump off of the table top into a medium speed left hander. Jumping off of the tabletop straight with no wheel input is crucial here, as landing weird will cause you to miss the corner and dump a lot of time. The second you land, give a little but if steering input to the left and give a small tap the brakes. This will set the truck into the corner and allow you to have more control of oversteer on exit. Once the truck is set into the corner, slowly apply the throttle. Focus on how much countersteer you have, and make sure to modulate the throttle to control it. Allow the truck to track all the way out towards the outside wall.

    After turn one, you come to two quick jumps and a left hand hairpin. The first jump is no big deal with these trucks, so just make sure you hit it straight. The second jump leads directly into the hairpin, so it’s quite important. As with the tabletop, you want to hit it straight with no unnecessary steering inputs. The second the truck lands, give a quick turn to the left and tap the brakes. You want to be as close to the inside berm here, as anything wider will cause you to lose time. This corner is very tricky to get out of without a ton of wheel spin, so make sure you’re especially smooth with the throttle here. As with turn one, allow the truck to track out towards the outside wall on exit.

    Directly after the hairpin you come to a large jump. This jump can cause issues if you land it wrong, so it’s important to make sure you’re taking it right. Assuming you exited the hairpin by the outside wall, you’ll want to angle the truck towards the left side of the track before you hit the jump. This will make sure you’re set up for the next hairpin after you land. Before you leave the face of the jump make sure the truck is balanced and that your steering wheel is straight. Once in the air, shift into 3rd to bring the RPMs down. Don’t rev the motor too much while in the air as it’ll cause instant wheel spin once you land. Feel free to get back to full throttle a split second before you land.

    Assuming you landed the large jump correctly, you’re now set up for the small roller jump and the right hand hairpin. You’ll see a lot of people miss this corner because they entered too fast, so focusing on a good entry will allow you to gain a lot of time on competitors. What I like to do is brake just before the roller jump and turn my wheel to the right while in the air. Braking before the roller will make sure that I’m able to control where my truck is in the corner, and turning the wheel while in the air will make sure the truck rotates the second I land. This corner leads directly into a tricky rhythm section, so it’s important you exit on the right side of the track. To accomplish this, enter the hairpin wide and then use the throttle to rotate the truck until you exit on the right side of the track. It’s really easy to use too much throttle and spin here, so side towards using too little throttle rather than too much.

    After the hairpin you enter a rhythm section. In this truck this section isn’t too difficult. You can hit the first jump pretty much anywhere you want and will be able to get through the section relatively clean as long as you keep full throttle. I tend to like to hit the first jump in the center to the track or slightly to the right so that I can set myself up for the next left hander. No matter where you enter the section, make sure your wheel is straight and that you enter with as much speed as possible.

    After the rhythm section, you enter a long, sweeping left hander. Assuming you exited the rhythm section on the right side of the track, you should be perfectly set up for this corner. This corner has a ton of banking and also gets tighter towards the end of the corner. Because of this you’ll want to enter the corner relatively high, and then allow the truck to move down the banking towards the inside of the track on exit. While you can take this corner full throttle in most cases, it’s usually better to lift a little bit as you go through the corner to reduce how much countersteer you have. The straighter your wheel is here, the quicker you’ll be.

    After the sweeping left hander, you finally come back to the table top to then the lap. Going onto the tabletop can be tricky as there is a wall that comes out as you go past the flag stand. I like to take the jump in the middle of the track to make sure I don’t run the risk of hitting the wall. You’ll also want to make absolutely sure that your wheel is straight before you even get to the face of the jump. As you go up the jump, your front tires will have a lot of load put on them. This will cause them to find a lot of grip and will immediately turn the truck in whatever direction you have your wheels pointed. There is a split second where the sweeping left hander ends and the jump starts. In this time period, you want to get the wheel as straight as possible. Since the front tires don’t have a ton of weight on them due to the banking, you can move the wheel pretty quickly back to straight without upsetting the balance of the truck.

    And with that, you have completed a lap of Wild Horse. It’s very easy to get complacent here and to drop off a decent amount of time from the beginning of the race to the end. Make sure you’re actively thinking of what you need to do each lap, and maintaining focus on throttle control and smooth inputs. Once you find a rhythm, make sure you don’t rely on it.
