hey sorry man if I sounded condescending. A lot times I come across like that - just my poor communication skills
I think at this level in gas it's more about preparation and knowledge of how to run a gas main than outright lap times.
Masami is awesome - no question about it. But maybe I'm wrong but wasn't Baker the only one "dominating" at the Electric worlds in South Africa? He choked in the last main or would have walked away with it buy a landslide. IMO he's the hottest driver in the world right know. Now if even he can't podium at the ROAR nats that should tell you gas is a whole different animal.
He might TQ, and associated might put another 5 cars in the main again - the NTC3 is an awesome qualifying car. But the difference from electric to gas comes when that race stretches out to a long, long, main.
Again you have to overlook my forwardness sometimes - don't mean anything by it.
