That was my 7x1 that I was saving until the main. The 8T was just as fast. I was thinking of going with a 6T but I needed my car in one piece for the nats....LOL

Master Masami would have beat Hara and Reinhard, blindfolded and driving with his feet

OK maybe not, but I wish he had been there racing

If you compare their lap times they were more or less at same pace

Car #5 Car #6
Atsushi Hara Marc Rheinard Diff
15.859 15.587 272
13.481 13.234 247
13.526 14.932 -1.406
13.623 13.465 158
13.278 13.271 7
13.380 13.119 261
13.211 13.088 123
13.188 13.212 -24
13.189 13.077 112
13.483 13.462 21
13.342 13.214 128
16.152 16.275 -123
13.408 13.407 1

Total difference is 223 tenths of second in favor of Hara.

I haven't seen the race nor the video but by just comparing the lap times it seems that Marc was faster (total is in Hara's favor but Marc lost 1 second at some point and yet he managed to take it back ) so I don't think it was intentional. he was just trying to overtake and make sure he was the winner.
After the crash he might realized that Hara couldn't win the round so he stoped.
I make the last comment based on the fact that his last lap was almost as fast as previous ones which doensn't indicate there was problem with the car.

Default Who's the best?

It is so hard to compare drivers especially in different era's. Obviously Marc has been on an incredible run and I have yet had the opportunity to see him drive unfortunately but it is hard to imagine someone being rated higher than Masami Hirosaka and Joel Johnson. These guys dominated for decades! How many World Championships has Masami won? More than I care to admit

With respect to Marc taking out Hara. Again, I obviously was not there but from what I understand...he stopped and waited for Hara after the crash. If his motives were purely selfish "to take him out" (or like a Schumacher move at Monoco) why would he stop?

I think when guys race at this level trying to achieve these type of results...things happen.

Sounds like the same story, please refer to Senna/Prost.
