Well, I guess it was good that some of the drivers raced at the TITC race in Thailand. Hand out tires where also Rides. Looks like Marc R. knows how to use them~

I myself was driving Losi along with another Italian Driver, but since there was only 2 of us and the rest of the field consisted of Hot Bodies, Tamiya, X-ray, YoKomo, A few Schumachers, and Assoicated as well, but with minimal team support with regards to setup help, we were both on the bottom end of the table, and both of us had different setups, but Tamiya and Hot Bodies were the strong contenders in all Mains.

I used one set for Practice, Qualications, and Mains, with minimal wear, but most drivers were sanding there tires prior to use to get more of a flat surface instead of a concave surface from the new tires, and also lots of tires coming unglued as well, but the track shop made a killing on tires, as many people were buying 5($212.50) to 9($382.50) sets of tires

I was the one and Only American Driver, but i cant really say i was a legitimate representitive of the US, since i was only there to have fun, and i only live 3 hours from the track, so it was a short but expensive drive, plus my hotel was 75 euro($91) a night per person, so it was an expensive trip, also the entry fee for the Warm-Up was 50 Euro($60)

That’s what he gets for kamikazeing Andy. Masami has really lost his finesse…seams like nowadays he cant compete with the young guys so he just plows into them because he cant pass

the 3rd main for masami was by far his best, as he put down some clean passes were the was much room for a pass, but the Man made the Podium!!!!

it nice to see that some factory drivers are starting to use brushless motors at bigger events. I'm just curious if they will actually use it at the worlds.

I have also seen Peak IB4200 on some drivers with very good numbers

SMC IB4200 was also used (Wilck, Adashi and more)
