Default b's

As bad as the B2's were last year at least everyone had the same tire. I agree being able to find a set of b's should not be the holy grail. Open it up for all tires, not just tamiya, or make a control tire thats available to everyone.

I think he is.....

The million dollar question for Surikarn.. do you still think that 414M is still a better car? otherwise, why not?

Other question.. What do you think about Reedy Krypton?, the reason I ask is simply because you recently jump to Peak.

It has nothing to do with the quality of the Krypton´s. Also there always is a difference betwen teammotors and productionmotors. I know a little why he changed to Peak as I know some people from the Tamiya team here who spoke to him. They say Surikarn got not so good Reedymotors as soon as he was faster than the TC3 guys to ensure a TC3 is winning and not the Tamiya. From what I have heard this could be seen very good at the Reedy Race UK. After this they offered him an Team Orion/ Peak deal. For those who don´t know Team Orion and Peak are the same motors.
So if you want a Krypton get it. Whatever motorbrand you chose there always is the chance for getting a very good or a bad one but you never will have one of those teammotors.

Yes at the UK reedy race some people with reedy powered TC3's were able to pass him down the straight and they also seemed to have more horse out of the corners. Rick

that sucks! Why would Reedy do that? regardless if he runs Tamiya or Associated. He should be given the same opportunity as all other Reedy sponsored drivers and battle it out on the track. I hope he kicks *** with peak.

I'm playing the mind game and hoping that if I'm rested I'll do better tomorrow rather than spend time worrying about it.
