Corner speed is king, especially when you don't have the motor and space to make up for scrubbing off speed in the corners.

It also took a 1-2 at Bedworth's BRCA Clubmans in the 17.5 blinky class. I think there will be more people running the car next year though, as it is now distributed through one of the main distributors in the UK, which only happened late on in the year. Ben Cosgrove was also running the Durango in 13.5 boosted at the same meeting

If he were racing against and beat guys like Hara, Groskamp, Rheinhard, Volker, etc. then that truly would be something else. But fair to say we all know that's not going to happen. As good as a racer he is, his "A game" is only a C or B game to the guys above. He's not at the same tier.

Elliot is a fantastic driver, also very friendly and has given me some good tips for my 417. Personally I was gutted when he went from Tamiya to Durango as he is a future worlds winner in my opinion. (Plus it was good to have an onroad works Tamiya driver in the UK)

Man on Elliots C game he would lap you 10 times with a tt01 Tamiya..

His A game has put him in 2 or 3 of the last worlds a mains if memory serves me correct so im not exactly sure what your talking about.

There were some very good drivers there, however the key is to see how he does at ETS meetings as the creme dela creme of drivers will be there.
