I totally understand your explanation, that said this hobby as well as industry is all about wins. I remember when I had my Axis Pro, it seemed to be on of if not the most exotic car of it's time. I remember the SST and Axis series winning race after race. I have tracked most of the big races over the last year and it seems like other then Teemu, shuie drivers dont do well. It now seems like eons since Shuies have been upper echelon. Do you attribute this to a perceived lack of top drivers or possibly being behind the times.

By the way, I would love to get an Axis Pro if any of you guys have one. I won my 1st club championship with that car.

yeah, though we also had a car in both stock and factory 19 mains at the novak. i think that's a pretty good start for '06, since that was 8 days into the new year.

I just wanted to stop in to announce that Isaak K., Andy V., and I, along with a few others from Axxis will soon be running the new Mi2 EC. I am sure it will be a pleasure being part of the team, and we hope that we can contribute towards future development. Isaac recieved his car a few weeks ago and has raved about it ever since.

Ok so based on the list above Shumacher had only 1 major win last year. Or am I missing something. And again this was at the hands of Teemu, where is everyone else.

Top drivers drive for top teams wouldnt you agree. These guys get free stuff regardless of who the race for, and right now Tamiya and Xray are attracting most the top drivers.

I think Top drivers drive for Top Dollars period......the car is secondary. A company like Tamiya, X-ray, or HB can afford to spend what ever it takes to get top drivers into their cars. A company like Schumacher doesn’t have unlimited funds to buy 3 or 4 of the top drivers in the world....they have 1 top gun. Just because they don’t have a million dollar team does that make the car that they produce lesser then the rest? I don’t think so. If Schumacher was to get another 2 or 3 top drivers then you would see the same car that is out there now in the top ten if not winning in the hands of these drivers. The guys that are always in the top 10 or top 20 at International events will be there regardless of what car they drive....give them any car and they can do it with any car. The MI2EC is a great car....driving it and seeing just what it can get done you get the feeling its going to be a great car and more people will take notice. If you are the type of person that is going to buy a car just because it won some race or some top driver races it that would be a poor decision on your part with out seeing which one works the best in your own hands....it might be a MI2EC or T2 or a RDX etc.... but if you don’t try them then you will never know.
