It would not surprise me if the 2010 Final had the same exact drivers as the 2008 final. There wasn't one person from it that I would leave out, except for maybe Amezcua. He has all the ability, just has been quiet this year, the Worlds is an event that I think driver's need to carry momentum and confidence.

Would love to see an AE car win, but Tebo is a hard guy to bet against.

Apart from the wall riding straightaways Pretty sure I am the only one that finds the layout kinda lame. are those lanes regulation width? It looks awfully narrow out there. jump landings short and peaky.... i don't know, gonna make for some rough qualifiers.

I preferred the warm up layout for sure! But maybe it feels better driving it. I hope so.....

That track is not as I would have thought. You need alot of motor, it looks like. that front straight looks like its 300 ft of full wood. Lots of sections you could clear if you have the low end.... I think fits the US drivers better... Just my opinion.

With a track like that, look for a lot of drivers to be switching to their big guns, I think Tebo and his 7port Orions will love this track. I wander about the AE guys running the Reedy motor, I seen them top out 2/3s of the way down the straight at nationals.. none the less, will make a very interesting final

Prior layout was more interest i think ... anyway its a world championship, easy, hard, bumpy or not its the same track for everybody so lets wait for the best driver/car combo to win ...

its a technical track, you have to have your line set, its not lame at all. the landings are fine. you have to know how to use your throttle and breaks, the track is set to IFMAR standards, these are pros, the track dont need to be 34 feet wide. It will be plenty of action, cant wait.
