that surface looks real slippery coming in and out of the jumps. Can't wait for the two wheel drive to get started.

I think there may be an advantage for some Cali guys that race at SoCal. One of the last of the slippery tracks and the track is old. Advantage Ryan C. (more confidence than anyone at the Worlds) and maybe even (I hate to say it) Mike Truhe. Truhe's car always has a lot of rear bite. And coming off of the ROAR Nats, his confidence is probably pretty high.

My pics that I would like to see win would be Ryan M. ,Hara, Masami, or even Mark P (depending on how much testing he was able to do before he left home). Hodapp maybe?

A-main not necessarily in any particular order?

1 Ryan Maifield B4
2 Ryan C B4
3 Masami B4
4 Hara B4
5 Mark P Kyosho/Peak
6 Hodapp Losi/Peak
7 Craig D B4
8 Neil C B4
9 Tebo B4
10 Brent T B4 or Joe P B4 or Jason R B4

11 BQ Mike Truhe Losi

Anyone else have a top 10?

What's up Steve!

I think Billy Easton will fight very hard to defend his title, and should not be counted out. Neil Cragg is my pick for the overall win though. It'd be great if Pavidis could make the show, but I have no clue as to how quick his K car is.

A Main may consist of?
Neil Cragg
Ryan Maifield
Ryan Cavaleri
Masami
Billy Easton
Matt Francis
Travis Amezcua
Jesse Robbers or Dave Montgomery?
Hara?
Peter Pinish, Brent T or Billy Fischer?

In no particular order

Cragg
Maifield
Cavalieri
Masami
Truhe
Hodapp
Pinisch
Pavidis
Easton
Francis

Would you believe that if Cavalieri wins 2wd he would be only the second driver in off road worlds history to sweep both classes (Masami was the other one in 1989)

I was looking at the pictures on the Orion Site a minute ago and saw the pic of Hodapp's X5. (It's the very last pic at the bottom of the screen.) But, I was suprised to see that he was running "BLUE" springs in the rear!! What's up with that?
