well I got my site back up but no video. looking for someone to host the video. I'll make one for the stock 12th main if I can get someone to host it. I pulled the video on my site. I might wait till it calms down. people want to see the results also and it won't happen with the video up. another thing I have which is cool and I will scan in is the sponsor sheets as filled out by the racers themselves mostly. I may post them here in a few days but I'll let the site die down a little first.

here is a good shot of the line and how far back it really is. notice the wire on the floor going to the timing platform.

Either way, to have a whole week's worth of racing come down to a few inches is absolutely amazing. Great show. Massive props to both winners in 12th Mod.

So if we went by the video footage wouldn't the guy with the "computer" win have a valid arguement? This just makes no sense the video doesn't show anything, from what I see Orr is in the lead at where I think the line is.

On the topic of triple As, they are exciting most of the time. the last Off Road nats had pavidis win in the last main in the last corner. Doesn't get more exciting than that.

There is one thing more exciting.... Winning it in the last main, on the last lap, in the last turn... after bumping up from the B main.

I like the idea of running bump ups.. it does add time to the total event, but not THAT much comparatively.

I think Nash's pic of the line pretty much settles the controversy. The line was way back on the straight and to me both cars were much to close together at that point to use ANY visual means of determination... it makes sense why the difference was only .04 secs.

I will be there, and the level/amount/accuracy of the coverage should be our best yet. Full round-by-round listings, results from the club races, photos, and A-heat videos for R/C Tech subscribers.

Found a home for the video? Dying to see the 1/12 and sedan mains. Are you going to do a DVD for this year?

as I sit here on dial up. yep I said dial up. at the rents for the weekend my sis came into town. I have a place for them and will upload them as soon as I get home. just bare with me. I will have the stock 12th main. but I have to record it to digi off my hi8 should take but a sec. as for windows media or quicktime I don't like the way they work and most of the time the updates don't work seamless for the codec. hence the problems some of you guys had downloading smalls video. real 9 had no problem getting the right codec running on the stuff I have. plus I can stream it on real. quicktime if you have the free version has the upgrade now crap that you have to click on each time you use it. plus real helix converts it to different sizes with no glitches. I will offer a downloadable version of it soon. but for now. it's streaming I think. still working on the site. as for the dvd it's in the works also. the cool thing is I have two views for the touring car stock and mod and mod 12th might try to get them into a two camera switch deal. we'll see.

love to but I don't have the fundage to do it. heck for that race I would go just to watch and report. cleveland is my big race for the year cuz I buy all the stuff that lasts me the rest of the season. although I will be at the norcca nats in knoxville march 13-14 and I'll be at the region 3 onroad race january 17-18 also in knoxville. I can get the time off but it's the money for a week. plus the gas down there. someone wanted to pay my way I'm there!

Anders, greetings from Malta.

Sorry I couldn't answer before but I have been away from my office for a week.

Pity your logic isn't as great as your driving. Whilst I have alot of respect for the latter, I'm afraid the former leaves alot to be desired. So pray, why ask about Corally. What about Yokomo, HPI, Losi, Schumacher, so many?

What is it that still haunts X Ray people so much about Corally?

But to give you an answer, yes, Corally had 2 works cars and European drivers there, very low key, like they always are, no fuss, no "hulabaloo", no hype and no bull shit, and they landed both cars in the B, a very good effort for the amount of mouthing, don't you think?

The point is that I consider your team mate Gilles Groskamp certainly one of Europe's top 3 drivers, dare I say on a parr with David? So why was he in the B? Might I be so bold as to suggest it was for the same reason poor Josh Cyrul wasn't able to thrash it out with the leaders as he is so used to doing?

Congrats on recent good results by the way.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.
