I wonder if it could have accidentally happened in tech? That might explain how it got jammed in a fuel line during tank check.

Hey Welcome to marketing 101 my freind. I am surely not accusing anyone but think it is possible. It happens in all forms of racing wy not RC? The stupid commercial everyone remembers, same stuff. Do you think Celebrities are really always doing stupid stuff (with great exception!)It puts them in the news and makes them more marketable.

And by the way your post kept the thread and the buzz going for there company/sponsors. I am sure they thankyou for more free exposure

Talking The Worlds

Many people have been concerned with winning.

I don't believe winning this event is the total issue here.

At an event like this, anything can happen. The leaders could have caused a major pile up due to one driver screw up. The drivers behinid could catch up and positions could change. Look what happened in the beginning of the main prior. Adam Drake was a contender but, due to issues, he didn't get a first place hole shot nor was he able to maintain the pace. Things happen.

That being said. He was there.

He could have won.

The point is, something happened to his car that normally should not have happened. Sure it was fixed prior to the mains, but, the issue was I am sure still on the drivers mind.

He blew a servo and of course that took him out. If he didn't break, who know the outcome.

Wasn't he in 12th and had made his way up to 7th before his servo blew?

This tells me he was on a mission to get backup with the leaders. In this kind of race, I don't think a person goes from 12th to 7th and not be good.

Talking Hmmm

Mann. You two confused me.

I thought I was on another site. I didn't get it.

Man you two threw me a curve ball.

Anyway. Now that this has happened, I want a New RB Shark 9 in my Mugen MBX6.

Hold the metal shaving in the tank please..
