How do you (or anyone else) know that Hara, Marc and Surikarn didn't have different set-ups in the ESC. With the HARA ESC can't you make your own profile? But what do I know! LOL

So just because 2-3 drivers run the "same" company equipment doesn't mean EVERYTHING IS EQUAL!!
oh yeah, I'm not 100% sure that they all use 7 x1 or 8 x 1 but if it different, do you have good reason that

why???? let's say that if 7t faster than 8t and single faster than double

since they're all world champions and should be able to drive superfast car, or just they're asian???

imprsme - I did the motors for the Team Orion/Peak team all weekend at this race. All our Invitational drivers ran the same motor. The roll outs were not all exactly the same, but were close since many of the drivers run different cars. Marc drove awesome all weekend and drove very fair with everyone. Marc closed in on Hara at the end of the straight and in the sweeper. Hara went a little wide giving Marc just enough room to get inside of him. Unfortunately they got together. Also, Marc pulled off the track because his car was broken.

Forget the drama and hopefully someone can post for the full results for the Invite, Spec, and Mod classes.

Well, the motor winding could be a driver choice, depending on Track lay-out, car set-up, feel for that driver. Alot of things come into play. Its not that oh hes a world champion and can drive a superfast car... If that was the case then there were other "world Champions" that were there that didn't make the top 10.........But they can still wheel a "super fast" car.

and as for the "just they'er asian" I don't get what you are trying to say. I hope you aren't trying to make it a Racial issuse......

Joe that is cool. I never ?'ed the contact. I thought it was a racing incident. No harm no foul.

If you watch both videos, the Reedy and the TITC, Marc's car seems to carry more speed at the end of the straights. So that is why I was saying it COULD have been a winding difference. But it could be Driving style, car set-up or ESC set-up also.

I was just trying ot point out that even though all things seem the same, sometimes they aren't.

Then why is everyone going on about Hara and Marc having the same motors and one being faster than the other?

Guess what, I only quoted Reinhard sr. from a German board as posted and did not issue a personal opinion about the incident.

So, my info was first hand from Uwe himself, right?

Are you done defending your Pal now?

thanks.
