By the tracking number, I should be receiving mine today. Can not wait for the mailman to get here to begin watching it. If it is all that you guys say, then I will order future DVDs from LiveRC.

Brandon, what happened to liverc? I paid yesterday, was watching up until about 5 minutes ago and now I get system errors and can't even get on the site. This really blows.

I finally got to watch mine last night, The wife and I sat down and watched both DVDs... I like it overall

I give it 5 stars on the actual main coverage, that was flawless. I'm guessing the commentary was the recorded live commentary?

I give it 3 stars on everything else.... There was a ton of stuff at the track going on, new parts, cars, horsing around in the pits that would have been entertaining to get on film. Absolutely nothing on the banquet.

The irrelevant fuel mileage questions over and over again got old, Noone was going to make 10 minutes at the farm, so that question was answered long before the race even began. I like some of the interviews, the huge contravercy's that developed with tech, all but one kyosho car failing tech inspections the first day would have been a key point to add, but I guess being in bed with them, thats not going to happen. Prolines dominance for the last 5 worlds, everytime with a brand new tire release is pretty remarkable... once again AKA's heavy affiliation with Liverc might have influenced that.

The opening ceremonies with each countries introductions of teams I missed, Film of buggies running on the track in the early rounds with 4" of water would have been awesome. Lots of stuff on the MP9 and AKA, No coverage of the new Mugen, SH car, Losi 2.0, Ishima, Crono, Hyper 9, Jammin, TQ SX8, Prolines stable of secret weapons never seen before. It appeared heavily influenced. Just my opinion of course, as everyone will have theyre own.

Making a good point with Aigion's marshal flameout was excellent, what a disappointment for Yannick.... He was understandably very upset with the marshal after the race. So many marshals cost teams and racers theyre results. IMO that was a terrible planning decision on the directors part to have completely un-experienced marshals for the semi's of the worlds.

Osaka's complete domination through the 1/16 and 1/8 finals and surprisingly loosing concentration and ended up watching another car and breaking his, ending the weekend, Jay Halseys butthead stunts trying to get people thrown out of the race, Cavaleri cooking his brakes down taking him out of the final, Jesse Robbers getting flamed by a marshal a few times taking him out of the running in the final. Savoyas multiple warnings for un-sportsman like driving almost disqualifying him from the event, him running the MBX5 in the final rather than the MBX6...Tebo's last second thrash wrenching session that delayed his introduction before the final and barely making the start in time.........

Lots of stories not covered that had huge impacts on the overall results.


4 out of 5 stars for me.
