    "********** Track Guide **********
    Welcome to Wild West! The key to this track is to reduce oversteer and wheel spin coming out of each corner. The majority of the corners on this track are tight hairpins that lead onto a long straight. Any time lost coming out of the corner will be amplified as you go down the straight.

    To start the lap, you immediately go over a stupid large jump. This jump can easily damage your truck if you take it wrong. However, you can also gain a ton of time here over your competitors who take the jump too cautiously. The safe way to take this jump is to let off of the gas early and potentially brake slightly just leaving the jump. Doing this will guarantee that you land correctly and that you can carry on with your race. The quick way to take this jump, however, is to go off of it full throttle. I’ve found the ‘safest’ way to take the jump full throttle is to completely lift off of the throttle the second your rear tires leave the jump. Doing so will bring the nose down just enough so that you land on the front tires rather than landing completely flat. If you land on all four tires, you run the risk of bottoming out and damaging the motor. Landing on the front tires will damage your nose, but won’t hurt your speed much.

    After the jump, you come to your first hairpin. Coming to the corner, I look at the banners on the catch fence on the right side of the track. There is a black and yellow banner about a second after you land the large jump (if you take it full throttle). I brake the second I pass this banner. The key for this corner is to take it as tight to the inside wall as possible without hitting it. You almost want to take this corner as if you were driving on asphalt; you don’t want to rotate too much or to go wide. As you exit the corner, you want to be extremely slow and precise with your throttle. SInce there is a long straight after this corner, you want to reduce wheel spin as much as possible. A good exit to this corner will be one where you don’t have to countersteer much due to wheel spin.

    After the hairpin and long straight, you come up to a tabletop jump and a small roller jump. The tabletop is pretty straight forward- just make sure you take it on the left side of the track. Since there is an extremely tight hairpin after the tabletop and small roller, you’ll want to brake the second you land the tabletop. You’ll see a lot of people try to brake after the small roller jump, but this will almost certainly cause them to go wide through the hairpin. Braking before the roller jump gives you much more control in how you take the hairpin, and also reduces any risk of hitting the roller jump wrong.

    Now that you’ve braked before the roller jump, you should be perfectly set up for the tight hairpin. As with the first corner, you want to get as close to the inside wall as possible, without hitting it. For this corner, it’s much quicker to go in slow and make sure you run as tight of a line as possible. After the apex of the corner, you’ll want to be very slow with your throttle input. It’s extremely easy to get wheel spin here, so make sure not to rush it too much. I like to let the truck drift to the left side of the track on exit so that I can keep the wheel relatively straight while applying more throttle.

    After the hairpin and a small jump, you come to a sweeping left hander. This corner is important because it leads to an up-hill straight. Luckily, this corner is relatively easy to hit consistently. You’ll want to put the left front tire as close to the inside wall as early as possible and stick it there through the entire corner. Slowly modulate the throttle so that you don’t over or under rotate too much. Once you get the rhythm down for this corner, it’s pretty easy to replicate.

    After the long straight, you come to a small jump and two roller jumps. The first jump is pretty straight forward, so you don’t have to worry too much about it. However, the next two roller jumps are quite important as they lead into the final corner. I like to brake just as I’m going over the first roller jump and then hold the brake as I’m going over the second. Doing this will bring the nose down coming over the first roller and will help scrub speed as you hit the second roller. As you’re going over the second roller, flick the wheel to the left. This will bring the rear of the truck around and set you up correctly for the next left hander.

    If you hit the two roller jumps correctly, you should now be pointed towards the final left hander. As with all of the other corners on this track, you want to bring the truck as close to the inside berm as possible and then slowly apply throttle on exit to reduce wheel spin. As long as you don’t overshoot the corner, you should be able to get through it relatively easily. If you’re struggling with this corner, you’re more than likely going too fast through the two roller jumps.

    After this final corner, it’s a straight shot to the line. There are a few small jumps that shouldn’t be too much of an issue as long as you lift off the throttle so that you don’t rev the motor too much.
