Congratulations to Marc to finally win his "missing title", he definitely drove very well on Sunday and had a very competitive package.
Sad that Ronald didn't have the impressive pace he had in qualifying, something was wrong on his car on Sunday which we couldn't find. Otherwise it would have for sure been an even better better battle for the win between Marc and Ronald.
It was a nice event in Spain, friendly atmosphere, great track and obviously fantastic weather. Btw, the beach was also nice on Monday...
As for the batteries:
definitely there should be action by manufacturers and/or federations. Because right now the drivers are suffering because certain cell manufacturers go to close to the limit which results in a formerly legal pack to suddenly become illegal during use! This seems what appaearently happened to Marc in the 2nd final when his pack failed tech.
As far as I could see he ran EP4600 cells for most of the weekend (matched by a small swiss company) and this is also the pack with which he failed in 2nd A-main.
For the 3rd A-main the Tamiya boys in the A (Marc, Jilles, Viktor) opted to borrow packs from their teammate Hupo (he uses our VTEC4600 cells) to be sure to pass tech...
I'm assuming they didn't run EnerG cells because those were too close to the limit already and the drivers were most likely to fail tech with those.
As for the 2.4GHz by Sanwa:
Ronald can not feel a difference between FM and 2.4GHz in the M11 (this is with Sanwa products, not Spectrum DSM). So I think it's pretty good and fast enough...
