In the Main the motor was a reedy and had no power, even if he landed the double before the triple perfect he still could not make the triple every lap.

Let me guess... All you guys complaining about Maifield's actions are big Kyle Busch fans or Jeff Gordan fans??? 2 of the biggest cry babies ever...

I'm sick of hearing the thing about kids hearing this and this being pethetic b/c of all the kids gonna hear curse words... But somthing funny is the guy that posted this thread... the main title has a curse word in it... or is it since you said that the F-bomb is the only curse word now???

dude i'm sure everyone of you are a role model to someone, rather it be someone at the track if you a big shot driver or a family member(your kids,nephews, cousins, whatever) and you gonna tell me you've never slipped up and cursed infront of them???

grow up and leave Ryan alone...

thats a reedy, period
The head and button fit the Vspec block. Just because it has the reedy head doesnt make it a reedy. It is very likely it was a reedy, i dont know.

The internals are almost an exact copy. I kept hearing that the AE guys have Speed cranks, but i can see the P/S/R being used as well.

Again, it was just the talk at the track. No proof it wasnt a stock reedy.

The OS block is black, the block in the picture is silver. I looked at the motor after the A-Main and it was a Reedy with a reedy carb. THE MOTOR SAID REEDY if it was a OS he might of won

No, but the fact that it was slow indicates that there was nothing OS about that engine.

Yea too have heard of a few Pro's UK and US running what I like to call the REOS! Reedy-External and O.S. Internal.. -And to make it more truthfull hearing the so called Reedy and a speed down the straight-Couldn't tell the difference in speed or sound.. But this is what a little birdy tweeted to me

Yeah... let's just use common sense to kill this debate, dude wouldn't be b*tching his guts out if he was running the engine he wanted to run end of discussion.
It was a Reedy or at least mostly Reedy
In any case, i can't see how his sponsor will be happy about this... he used to do the cooling head switch when he ran the GRP as well why didn't he get an O.S sponsorship from great planes/hobbico?? sponsor conflict? or the dude just follows the money??
don't know him or anything but he seems to have made some bad choices no matter what motivated them.

There are a few people on the same stand beside him and I bet they are disturbed in their concentration.

And come on...he is a pro, he should act like one. As a sponsored and paid driver you are supposed to be a rolemodel and somebody to whom little kids should look up to. Yelling like this and disrespecting a sponsor who pays you to run their engines, very mature, I'm sure new sponsors will stand in line.

As to the camera being right next to him and that it should be forbidden... be serious.... this whole game and industry is kept in business because of internet and magazines.... publicity sells products....and products need good ambassadors.

But hey, he had a bad day, got lapped, hacked and didn't do well. Shit happens and people get upset. But don't defend him on his bad behavoir, this isn't the way you want your kids to act do you?
+1 How anyone could think other than what you have posted is beyond me. If my kid acted out like that in public, I would beat him senseless, I don't care how old he was. I have lost my cool on a few occasions at the track, and regretted it every time..I'm surprised to see a guy with that kind of race experience lose his cool like that....Not a smart move on his part for his wallet's sake. FWIW, I haven't ever heard or seen the likes of Adam Drake do that sort of stuff.

im staying out of the actual if maifield was wrong or not, but maifield is one of the fastest rc racers in the world, he chooses who he wants on his car, but thats usually who pays the most to, im sure how he acts isnt just at this race, he prob acts the same at any race and i dont see it hurting him at all, like him or hate him, he has extreme talent
