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
They don't all have the same amount of talent. They are all very good, but there is definitely a difference between them.

Jilles car looked good in Q2 but the rest of the team not so much. I am sure Jilles is still running the 418 !

Ronald has overall TQ so far with a 1st and 3rd, Jilles is somewhere around 15th or 16 since he didn't run Q1. They aren't using Rocket Round for determining qualifying positions.

Yep my mistake, Jilles got the fastest overall time in round 2 not overall TQ

Carrying over the c-hub discussion from the other thread, here's some pictures of the new Square 5 degrees c-hubs vs the 3 Racing aluminum c-hubs (that bend easily). The Square bits look like they can stand up to some abuse!

Nope, he and the rest of the team are running the 419. He's not satisfied with the way the car is handling at the moment. Yes,he TQ'd the second round because he was a new tires, whereas Ronald was either running on used tires or conserving the tires throughout each round. Also, it didn't help Ronald when he flipped his car.
