He who counts out MR in a WC season, is very foolish

Someone once told me "MR could put a TT02" in the amain.

And it is probably true. The guy is very, very talented.

The difference for Volker this year is timing/luck/consistency.

He has dominated ETS for a while now and was pretty close to WC in 2012 don't forget. He hasn't just all of a sudden appeared on the scene.

The difference isn't necessarily the fact that volkler is any better. I was told by one of the best American factory mod drivers at a race recently that at the top level (ETS, worlds, etc) that all of the guys Iin the A main have the same amount of talent. He said the only thing that matters at that level is your mind state and mentality. And that is absolutely 100% true. I you don't have the mind state of going into a race feeling like your going to win and don't have the confidence In your car (MR calling his car maximum shit) then at that level you're going in already behind the cue ball. All it will take is him to win one big race over Volker and the whole team will rise up.

do not count any of the Tamiya drivers out at world's this year

Hell no.

And you've seen a distinct shift in attitude since there has been a mechanic (Kiyo no less) and set up guru groskamp at the meets.

That will help a little....!

Elliot Harper! I wonder what position he would be in if he stayed with Tamiya? No mechanic or full team support for this lad.

Chris G is making a statement with the Schumacher Mi5Evo. It's nice to see him in the mix and definitely a confidence booster for him and the Schumacher team.

Three Tamiya's in the top 10 isn't bad, but 2 out of the 3 are world champions. They should be positioned higher than that.

And don't forget he has Umino as his mechanic, Volker isn't even allowed to touch his cars

So, what cars are the Tamiya team drivers using at the race, a 418, 419 or a hybrid?

If they drive something like the new 419.....I stick with my 418
