Heck no! I did not know we were cheating at the time and was upset when I found out we did. My comment about missing the performance perks was complete sarcasm.

I had the batteries and missed the A final on my own mistakes. I always admit my mistakes and never blame equipment unless I have a motor blow up and cost me a win or something like that.

Good luck to your boys in Italy!

Only one company (not a major manufacturer) submitted illegal cells (too heavy and over the limit in diameter). They were spotted immediately and confiscated for the duration of the event.

We also randomly measured cells and checked pack weights during qualifying and the A-mains.

Were there illegal cells at the Worlds...yup...did anyone run them...not during qualifying or any A-main.

Seems to me , but just maybe having Orion weigh & tech all the cells would give um a hell of advantage ....

Seems like everyone in front of me was cheating and should now be disqualified. All hail to the new world champion. Me!

At least we have a little hype now. We've been lacking in the hype department lately...

1/12 is on carpet...will Mike Blackstock be the next 1/12 WC ?

Don't count Josh out. I've seen his new car and it kills the old car for corner speed.

Should be a great race. I can't wait to see some videos after the event.
