Lets face it If you gave these guys a brick with wheels they would make it look fast.
It will be good to see the car in every day Joes hands to see how quick it is.
But like i said the car does look well put together with some nice bits.
Just my 2cents.
I would not necessarily agree with your statements.
Yes, XRay is paying big dolars...
Yes, these guys are extremely talented...
No, they cannot drive a brick with wheels...
Part of the talent of these drivers is finding the right spot in the settings range where the car will work best. If the car cannot be set in such a way that it will perform well, then these guys would not be placed in he top 10. Perhaps they would be in the top 15 or 20...
Furthermore, you cannot say this is simply an average car because the car is working well, right at its debut race. Saying that having top dollar drivers is the only difference is as much as saying that Toso, Morganti, Ishitani, Cyrul and others are lesser drivers. Obviously that is not true.
Perhaps it would be interesting to see Mike S. driving his MTX4... and thus we could have a more complete comparison.
