Savoya will bag it. He almost got it last time, and he's been practicing on that track like if there was no tomorrow. Heck, he even moved to Australia to practice even more. Plus he drives the most reliable car around (ie the Moog). Go Renaud!!! Aygoin will make a good showing again for sure but, as usual since he won the euros in 96 ( i think) there will be some kind of misshap that will kill his chances.

I put my money on Savoya or Hara.

USA TO WIN WORLDS 2010 I think the mains will look more like the ROAR Nats than a international race. Just my opinion

From watching European races and US races I have come to two solid conclusions that I believe are fairly concrete.

1. US tracks are much more difficult in terms of technicality. The surfaces are often lower traction, whether they be hard packed or a loamy surface. The jumps and technical sections on some tracks are very tedious and require patience to realize the fastest line. Whereas the europeans often race on the beginners surface, wait I mean astro turf. Most if not all of the european tracks have zero jumps/elevation changes, I guess you could call those lumps in the middle of the track jumps?

2. This is America, we do everything bigger and better than everyone else. Thats why everyone is jealous of us.

If sportsbook had a section for betting on RC races, I would bet insane amounts on US drivers at the Worlds.

1- i agree about the US vs EU tracks comparison.

2- i dont agree on your second point. first, you haven't seen the jumps that we have in our track second, you havent seen the track in Pattaya, its THE best track you will ever find. people who went there will support my opinion

3- 2008 WC, 8 US drivers in the Amain, and just one on the podium

last thing, since you went waaaay out of subject.... who's jealous of you??? not everyone, i know i aint, i pay zero taxes my entire life, gas is water cheap and almost everything is Free in Kuwait (education, health care...etc etc $hit you even get payed when you get married in here (14000 dollars) 50% is a gift and 50% is a zero interest loan from the gov.

back to subject, Shesha for the win (go Nawaf) team Kuwait in your dreams Bro

cheers

Ali

My vote goes to Maifield. The guy is an amazing driver from the videos I watched and the latest video on Neobuggy which had most of the top drivers participating.

he was super fast during the Pre Worlds, a big favorite for the WC. i have the impression that Hot Boddies drivers are super fast when they all team up together!!!

2008 WC.

8 drivers in the A main is high %. To be on the podium. Required some luck. Hara had no problems and done great. Nobody can take that away.

Jumps:- To make one or double big jump is pretty easy.............jumps in sequence are the hardest and require good timing.

Pattaya jumps are 2nd to America. American/Canadian did well there.
The Pre-world qualifying already shown the results. The Pre-world had only 50+ drivers..............those on podium always require some luck though good driving and strategy is always an element and it is not a result should be considered.

The rest are not there.

WC in Pattaya, high % will be American again. The winners would be hard to predict.

Tebo, Hara, Drake, Truhe, Teesman, Maifield, Robbers, Aigion, Savoya will be in the final should nothing goes wrong. The rest just make up the numbers in the A final and will not much be in contention to be WC 2010.
