keep the great pictures coming good to see them for sure.
Less power is not necessarily slower.
5 cells have the same or faster lap times than 6 cells on most tracks.
5 cells and a lighter car also saves the tires from burning up, very important in hot conditions!
6 cells will only be good for a huge 1:8th scale track.

Default Aussies

Good to see some excellant Aussie drivers ,Goodluck Kirby ,Andrew Abbott ,Andy Cooke , Simon Fiegel and the Javonovic Brothers

That shine on the track surface is the Sugar type fluid that gives unbelievable grip apparantly it is coated every day.

Will be interesting to see how 5 cell goes in a big competition as here in Oz we are finding it to be equal on most tracks to 6cell and alot easier on car drive trains .

There is a gentlemans agreement for all top drivers to use 5 cell cars in line with most likely will be used at the Worlds later in the year. This was posted on the notice board at the track

I just spoke someone who is at the track. Teemu Leino is the fastest. Than Hara Surikarn, Alexander Hagberg and Masami. It is verry close together, but also diffucult to practise because there are so much drivers.

The tires are not so good, but they work for more than 1 run so thats ok.

Good luck to all!

Thanks for the Sweet Pictures, and all the great Information. I'm checking this thread anytime I have a free minute. So wish I would have gone.... Oh Well, Next time.

I got a call and few emails from SE last night actually. Some minor issues, but it's all sorted now. Scotty wasn't permitted to run both Mod and Stock so he decided to stick with stock. I would too probably. That mod field is pretty massive. We didn't talk for long, but I'm gonna try to call Tanit tonight and get some updates. If I hear anything I'll come on and post.

Thanks again for the Coverage Guys, Please Please Please keep it coming!
