What do you mean Carlton? That was a quick pit stop... for the Special Olympics.

Savoya now resides in Aus., correct? I'm sure he will log some time on the local dirt between now & then.

However, my "money" is on Ryan either way.
think back to the last worlds at the farm, and he only had the new mbx6 a couple of weeks before the race. savoya = fast but i do like ryan on the track and in the pits, real nice guy

Lutz for the win! Hands down! Lutz has his Tamiya cars really good right now and he just keeps getting better! Savoya is ok. The Shark will be a top 5 car for sure.....Maybe we will see a preview of this race at the 2010 Nitro Challenge at the Nitro Pit????? I am a little biased though as Ryan is a good friend and I have seen him race at my home track. Savoya has never showed up yet......This topic is kinda off the wall though as any race here in SoCal is like a world's. Last race at Thunder Alley had alot of heavy hitters! Hara,Maifield,Kortz,Truhe,Pavidis and many many others that made for pure excitement everytime they hit the track!

I don't think so. I believe he lives in France.

Moved to Australia late last year, he wont turn a wheel at our track until the day this event starts so both will start on a level playing field

lutz for the win. i've seen him drive, MANY times, at different tracks, and he is always way fast, and VERY impressive to work. and he is a very nice guy to talk to in person, and he's helped me out on the track a time or two.

If I remember right Savoya wasn't running the new 6'er. He was running a 5 with some 6 parts on it.
