The Fat Track Mountain style of tracks have become all the rage, with them springing up all over the place on YouTube channels. Tracks like 3DBotMaker's Race Mountain Speedway are super fun to watch, but when it comes to making cars to race, I'm at somewhat of a loss.
I haven't really dipped my toes into the fat track racing because I don't have a good grasp on what makes a car good or bad. The open track racing just seems to boil down to luck, at which point, what's it matter what I do to a car? I might as well just grab some rando and hope for the best.
Is it all just luck?
Assuming there is some skill to building a winning fat track racer...what are your strategies and build methods to make such a car?
Do the old ground rules of good, heavy weight in the back and smooth wheels still matter? Or is open track a bit more forgiving when it comes to those things?
Should you build a car like a tank so it can just bash its way through to the end?
I never thought there would be an "old school" method of diecast racing but it seems like I'm stuck in it, and now I'm looking to spread my wings a bit.
Do you enjoy the open track racing? If so, what's your approach for building cars?
