Default any tips before my first comp on sunday

I think I'm off to a good start on my build. This is what I have going so far in my truck.
Axial crawler with;
-Losi rock claws
-RC crawler comp2 set up
-mamba 25 speed control
-eflite 400 outrunner brushless
-1320 lipo
-home made DIG setup
-castle bec
-mg995 steering servo

Not really looking for any last minute upgrades. Just looking for some good advise or a good game plan. I have never been to a comp before. This Sunday will be my first. thanks

Look at your next gate and before you take a line make sure you will have a good setup for the next gate. Make sure everything is tight battries are charged. And most inportant HAVE FUN.

Look 2 gates ahead and take your time. Plan the course in your head especially if you get to watch others run before you.

You've got a sound rig and the advise you've aready recieved is spot on. If your in it for fun you can't loose. If your one of those people who has to be number one to be happy good luck.
