They will have to run production cars at the Worlds correct? I'd bet HB releases the version of the car that gives them the best shot at winning. Besides the majority of the trick parts they are using are being duplicated by other racers anyway. It's not much of a secret really.

Absolutely.. Heeck, there have been parts made just for a selected few TLR Team Drivers in the past. Parts that WE STILL DON'T HAVE and most have never seen.

The kid is a factory pro, probably the fastest right now. He will always run stuff we don't have.

v6shooter - Not hatin, it's reality..

Not all prototypes make it to the factory.. There's some business that goes on that drive these decisions..

Looks smooth and the track looks really cool! I didn't know what car he drove either so I googled his name, and noticed he had a website.

Besides they could have parts that are slightly different and you wouldn't be able to tell unless you lined things up.

Factory based is a loose term. They could probably run a HB body on a
Hyper7 if they wanted.

well it would not make any sence to put out a car
"No One Can Get" would it...??? think about it...???????
manufactures want there cars to sell..!!!!
if rumors go around that there are cars not the same
as what is run ...and think about it for a second???
ok for some a few hours maybe days...????

but if it's not the same what would be the point...?????
no really what would be the point?.....
well it is no secret most will run and
try different things to find what works with the "Platform there Working with"
to say there is never room for Improvment to anything would be dark....
we might as well all throw away our computers? cell phones pretty much
"Electronics".......the world moves forward !!

now for the hobby those that can drive will be able to drive.......
those that envy and cant drive will hate........kinda simple?

for the other drivers that have parts we see but cant have?
well lets look at the cost part of that !!!!!!!
ok, say someone who "Can Not Drive" sees a part no one has?
but in his or her "MIND" that part will "Instantly make them faster" (yea right?)
lets say they decide to make this "Part" instantly Available !!!
drop 80 to 120k in temp molds to make sure they get it right !
then another 320k for the final production molds "NOT THE Machines" !!
just the molds !!! yes they are expensive !!!!!
and yes they do wear out !!! and tolerances need to be kept !!!!!!!!

then release it to a "World Market" not just 20 or 30 people !!!!!!
but a world market !!! (and for a sec think of those costs !!)
then Hundres of thousands in the cardboard headers
the plastic bags distrabution "COST" for shipping and having enough for replacements.....!!!!!!!! guess what more "COSTS"........LOL

and then.........



the part "Does Not Work"................


DUH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!


(yea can see it now some Joker going to say well i work here and we do this)
yea well you aren't the staff doing the work for the company making what ever it is so it's a different company !!...LOL........DUH !!!!!
besides staff from the companies wont be around here talking bout what is done......again......Duh !!!!!!!!
but as someone with money it takes a considerable amount in
"Production Costs" that 5.00 to 20.00 part takes money in an amount
to fill the needs of more than just 20 or 30 drivers.....but thousands
"World Wide".....we think were the only ones.....LOL
other countries race too.......LOL
oh,and there is the r/c'ers motto "I Want"-I Want"-I Want"-Now-Now-Now !!!
Gimme-gimme-gimme.......!!!!!!.....i want for free-i want for free.....!!!!



sometimes an evaluation of a part can take some time? feedback is needed
the part or parts need to be able to help all aspects of driving styles?
and a usefull tunning aid if needed.......
but then.......no one "THINKS about that".........
think about it a sec...
ok for some a few days....???

but a manufacture will want the items and parts to work !!!!!!!
do you think they want to blow out money to not have it work...???
that would be "Stupid"........????????
again no one "Thinks".........?????


as for the worlds the parts they have must be "Production"
in other words those parts may not be available at the "Time" they will be racing the "Worlds" but buy Definition they must be available for the greneral
public consumer by Reasonable time.......
also in other words it must be a finalized item
that will be sold by the company............

and lets take the tray for the losi for "Example" what if after testing it did not work properly........????
man you'd have allot of pissy r/c'ers !!!!!!! not that there not already...????
"Gimme-Gimme-Gimme,i want everything for free-Gimme"...........

so will there be a version of Ty's D8T probally...??? maybe there is now..!!!
just no one takes the time to find the set up that works for "THEM"
again theres that......DUH !!!!!!!!!
point is the kid has ......OH Wait dare i say.........
............"TALENT"....!!!!!!
he can drive a lunch box with wheels and still make Cavilaeri and Maifeild
sweat it out knowing there going to Lose.........
he's just "GOOD"........but no one thinks about that........LOL
in fact there all very good....kinda why there there trying,testing using..??
because they win sometimes sometimes they dont? and if the parts dont
work,the manufactures will not want the general public to have something
that doesn't work well...??? .........Bad for Sales !!!!!!!!!
let's ...wait i know may hurt some?? but let's think again for a sec.!!

company puts out part that doesnt work-no one wants to buy product-
items begin to fail more customers-"Consumer" no longer buys product?
company can no longer make "Products"....
by this point makes no sence to make product for one or 2 yo-yo's
for a product no one will buy.......????
need anyone say more........LOL



oh and back to Ty's run in the Video....dam looks good !!!!!!

Just because they may have to run a production level car doesn't mean hey can't run prototype parts.
Guys like Ty are paid to test new parts. It's testing to see what makes the car better. If it weren't for guys like Brian Kinwald, where do you think we'd be today? What about Matt Francis, Chad Bradley, Masami, Hara, Maifield, Cav, Pavidis, and the countless others t have helped grow the hobby/sport. You think pro hockey goalies are running off the shelf gear? What about the players? The answer is no. They are paid to test and promote and drive/play to make the equipment better for you and me.

I have NHL hockey pants. You can't buy them. They make the ones I purchased for to much money look way inferior. They are nice.

Ty being fast isn't just he has talent. It's because he is Canadian. LOL! You have to fast because it's so cold in the winter. Especially where he is. Not so much where I live.
