I am not an American citizen, and I respect peoples' opinions, but I am amazed at some contributors continuous efforts at putting your own country's excellent products down.

The United States was once a proud nation, unless my history books too have it wrong. But you guys are not doing it much proud continually belittling your own products.
Welcome to the US. We can do nothing but complain...it's our "right."

I was just glad to see an 'old dude' (older than 21!!) be competitive AND win the Invitational class!!!

Cheers to Drescher!!!

Totally agreed, on all points. The problem is they're gonna need another topnotch mod driver here in the U.S. imo. Toso is an awesome driver, but I don't think he can singlehandedly win every race in the U.S. Another excellent mod driver could really help out through additional testing and information sharing. The car is, no doubt, an excellent design, and works very well,(a few of my friends are Corally Team Drivers), I just feel they need a bit more depth in their "Pro" Team.

Corally is a perfect example of the fact that big name drivers do sell cars. The Corally is a good car. But out here, it was pretty much non existent. I had only seen maybe two or three of them, back to the Assassin. As soon as Chris signed with them and the RDX came out, they're everywhere! Everyone dismissed the Corally cars as second rate. When Chris signed with them and there was a thread on here about it, I remember someone saying something to the effect of, Chris just signed himself into the C main now that he's running Corally. But look at his results and what it's done for their sales here in the States. When there are good drivers behind the wheel of almost all of the current cars, they're going to do well.

Chris has brought the Corally to many markets that had never even seen them before. Also the establishing of a very solid Stock and 19t level drivers have also been huge for Corally here in the US. Chris was the top Pro guy in the US for Yokomo for years and much of the time on his own at many top level events. I get the vibe that the Corally is more of a team situation with many people helping each other out. Team Corally is doing things the right way to get its foot in the door and has established itself as a big player in the US sedan scene.

I think Chris has far exceeded most peoples expectations for his change to Corally. Good to see him doing well.

Jeff- You hit the nail on the head! Before the snowbirds I had only seen one RDX! After talking to Rob, and watching the Stk. and 19t performance of the guys running the RDX. I again went and talked to Rob.... I had 12 hrs. to think about buying the car on my way home. Mon. Morning I odered the car. I had issuses with the Thrust bearings. I called up Rob. First thing he says is I am sending out the updated thrust right now..... Guys I got it next day! After a few mins on the phone he started asking the important stuff, How do YOU like the car, How has it worked for YOU. We talked a few more mins. about the car. You just get that feeling that Corally is trying to get the most feed back from EVERY customer! Well with good showing at the carpet regional. I was picked up by the Corally.

So with that said (I maybe bias in this) I am glad to see what Corally has done in just over 6 months of building a VERY COMPETITIVE TEAM!

I am one of the ppl that looks at the Stk. and 19t results before I look at Mod. or invite classes..... Why you ask... Give anyone of the 30 something guys in the invite class any of the chassis that were ran and you will see that after a few packs they will be pretty close to how fast they were with the other chassis.

Now do that in Stk. or 19t..... I don't think it will happen.

Am I bummed that Corally only has ONE "BIG NAME FACTORY" guy in Invite, sure, he is carrying the whole deal on his shoulders. But look at Spec. 6 out of 10 in the A!

So with all of that said CONGRATS to all OF TEAM CORALLY for the great race results!

Oh, that's right TJ. I had forgotten that Mc$ is now rolling an RDX. That fact alone has rendered my previous point moot.
