And at least a decent motor.

And a good pit crew.

And the right tire.

And a little luck never hurts.

We watched round 3 of qualifying and Drake had trouble keeping his car upright. You could see him frustrated on the driver's stand after the first couple flips. I think he was 28th in that round. I believe he did much better in the very next round. I think he was top 5 but I didn't get to watch that round.

AE is most common in the top 16!!!
While we were at the track the announcer mentioned the Associated RC8 was the oldest buggy in the field and it was less than a year old.

Just for the guy who cant figure value for money cars.

Any car in the right hands can perform even Skoda have won a WC.
But you need to spend a fortune doing it.
Or just buy the right car in the first place and save many hours of rebuilding and fixing breakages and upgrading poor quality parts.

Go buy yourself a skoda and i wlll give you a race in my ferrari. DA

Questions?? the "peanut" with nija engines

hey all: Can someone tell me how travis amezcua's switch from grp to the new mugen nija engine came about. Could his switch to the nija engine been based on performance and or being offered more $$$? Seams like a bold move to make so close to the event. Thanks

The Pro drivers run earn a living so part of there use of a product is $$$ based but performance would be the clincher for the edeal.

Take those top 16 drivers and hand them one of those top 16 cars that they are not currently running, then give them a little tuning time and make them go back out there and run through qualifying again.
I would bet anything in the world that, with luck aside, the results would be almost identical!!

All of those cars are very good now and all of the manufacturers should be complimented!
