Congradulations to PEAK/ORION for being the constant piece of equipment that dominated this World Championship.

Oh and the stick radio.

Can anyone give any info on the bodies/wings that the A-main drivers used?

Also I'm suprised that there hasnt been a Protoform post about who used Protoform bodies. Usually they seem quick to promote themselves

Do you think anyone of the asses that did not race could be anymore disapointed than say Hara?

Those racers were too drunk to race in their finals?


WTF?!?!!

My biggest question is why they keep running those unrealiable brushless systems. I was at the Reedy race and Craig had great runs going, but had the bl system shut down on him at the last minute. Yes, he did make the main at the worlds, but that bl system cost him a higher finish. I will buy a bl system to practice with, but will never buy one for actual racing, unless they become more reliable.

Because right now, the only real motor development that Reedy has been doing has been all brushless. If a driver runs for Reedy, they're either stuck running the brushless, or the older Ti/Kr motors.. It seems like since Mike retired, that any new brushed motor development from Reedy pretty much died. I mean.. even Masami has switched motor brands..

Craig was running a Novak brushless at Reedy, not a LRP. The drivers with the LRP systems also had the problem of thermal shutdown. Brushless is as fast as brushed motors now...but still not reliable enough.
