Out of curiosity, are the drivers at the WC invite only? Or is there some points system you have to achieve throughout the year to even attend?

I think they are just doing you a favor no guessing at what parts to buy or whats going to break. They dont add anything unnecessary that would be bad

You must qualify to attend the worlds. In the USA you must run ROAR and finish in the top 4 or 5 I'm not sure, to qualify to represent the USA in the Worlds.

its not the just the top 5 because there are several mains, but last worlds there were about 15ish USA Drivers + the support staff from each manufacturer.

Im in the process of getting another mp9 soon,i kicked myself in the butt for selling that buggy because every other buggy i have tried has never felt so planted on the track,The kyosho drivers over here when you watch there cars on the track they looked glued to the track and always have the cleanest laps,faster laptimes,and the smoothest driving.Im driving a hara d8 right now and it really drives nothing like my mp9 i had,im getting the tki2 very soon.
