Having actually been at the race I can say that Cody definitely deserved the win and surely surprised and impressed me with his driving. Along with Ryan Maifield he was the most confident looking and cleanest throughout the main.

The two main things that happened that helped him to his victory were Maifield flaming out, he looked to have things under control, and Hara getting a stop and go, even after waiting on the track for the other guy.

Preperation + Opportunity = Luck

I strongly believe you make your own luck most of the time.

You cant compare the worlds to a clubrace in USA, its very different, in so many ways.

I think everyone sensed that Kyosho would make a strong statement at the worlds. Cody has always been ballistic fast everywhere he goes, and Jared coming off his Roar Nats sweep. The people at Kyosho are making the racing aspect of the hobby more true and professional, which is a good thing that benefits all of us into competitive racing for the long run. These two guys have raised the standard for professional racing and I strongly think that Kyosho will be dominant and red hot going into 2011.

Thanks JQ!! I am just happy to do well for my sponsors. If i remember correctly I crashed with a couple laps left and Hara took the lead and I got it back. I got a little lucky when he crashed at the end. 808gx7r Didn't someone ever tell you if you dont have anything nice to say then don't say anything? I worked very hard to win and I don't appreciate you coming on this thread and running me down!!! Thanks everyone for your nice comments

I don't see how luck is an issue. It's all about prepping your car and controlling that throttle! All the best drivers had a chance to win. The most consistant driver won!! If your engine is tuned properly you won't flame out! Plain and simple. Driving you car in a safe manner will keep you from breaking! What's with all the hate??

I guess the interview was too sureal for Cody. After winning the worlds, I doubt this wasnt even close for him to being nervous.
