my opinion : Horizon Hobby "killed" Team Losi... Why Gil Junior leaved them? And with only 2 drivers in Japan.... Do you remember how many drivers were in Japan in 1995? that's the different 12 years later...

Hey Charlie, just curious to know who will be announcing the Race since it has to be in English?! As far as I know both Scotty and Jimmy didn't make it... though either of them would have been perfect!


We ALL hope the weather improves dramatically over there and wish the Live Feed finally starts working properly! Best of Luck to the Orange Gang!

Cool scenery, but too bad it comes at the expense of the crappy weather. I bet the brushed motor guys (If there are many of them left) are hating life with that much mud and crap getting in the brush hoods and hanging brushes.

a lil lexan ahead of the endbell might have prevented some issues.

personally i doubt i would have even bothered putting the car down on the track unless you guys plan on racing it the way it lays. I don't recall the worlds rules off the top of my head.

I will hand it to IFMAR. Talk about holding the biggest race in the industry on the side of a mountain next to nowhere! Here's a tip- Next time you hold a "World Championship" race make sure there are at least an ATM in the general area, that does not require you to crawl on the back of a donkey and ride down a hill to civilization. Call me crazy, but if there is no ATM's, there's no money. Let’s promote our somewhat expensive hobby to people with no money. I say next worlds should be held in New Guinea, so we can try and promote the hobby to the local headhunter tribes.

Sorry I couldn’t resist. Good Luck USA, lay some wood…

We woke up to a sunny cloud free sky today, WOOT WOOT!

I hope you guys don't think I actually walk around giving out your messages do you......?

It's about race 3 on the track, I'll try to get some "who's fast stuff", but I'm kind of useless for that. I have a hard enough time keeping track of my own guys, let alone the other teams.

I'll get some more pics of tracks in a few hours and get them over to Mr. Hay.

To Quote Truhe regarding the difference from yesterday, "I would say it's Night and Day, but its even bigger then that".

The track is still slick and muddy, the marshalls have a hard time making it to the track. One dude ate it big time, hurt his wrist a little bit, but he's okay.

More to come soon.

Oh, yeah, I do love the internet...

Off for race five and some more novak racers.

Hey everyone I am sure there is a link somewhere with in these 12 pages but I dont feel like looking through all of them. Does anybody know where I can find a link to lap times or any sort of thing like that. Also how are the Serpent offroad cars looking? and is Billy Easton a threat in 2wd and 4wd??
