Because they are the ones that think a win is a win and would rather have it be easier with out him there. LOL

They are few and far between and have no game.

You are so far off base with that comment! A majority of the Top US Drivers racers love having Hara compete at our Nationals!!! I only know of 1 person that has taken issue and I think it's more of an issue with the way he qualifys.

Come on Peter...You know darn well Masami isn't skipping the 12th Worlds because of Carpet! He has dominated the 12th scale Worlds regardless of surface.

Is Barry going to the Worlds? Hope your hand is feeling better Barry! I heard the drivers stand has been upgraded from critical condition to serious condition as of last week.

No I will not be there......but I do have a question....

Does that mean that the winner of the TC main has a hallow feeling about the win without me there?LOL I think not!

Barry's broken hand is all my fault...He was so distraught after finding out I wouldnt be there to handle his 19 turn motors he lost it...

Sorry BB......I'll make sure you have something special for the next 19 turn race

Barry is it hard to play the violin with the cast on..HEHE just kidding. I am bummed cause my flight was pushed till saturday instead of friday.

Hey does anybody know what will happen to racing if the worlds goes almost all brushless? Can we ever go back. I heard you cant un-ring the bell...

I guess it wont matter what angle the brushes are at or if they are round or square when all the fast guys are using brushless...HEHE I wish I had one.....

Well, I think Rick deserves one more than anyone else.

There was a "Rick's Pick" motor about 15 years ago. Does that count?

begging and pleading post....

I am pretty old school...so I dont believe in brushless for racing....maybe some brushless-only classes....but in my opinion, running the 2 technologies together is rediculous!!!!

I think it takes such a fun and important part of the tuning game away from racing...I hate it....but thats just me...

I wish brushless was just the future of Ready-to-run Electric cars and trucks...and thats all....

I know we could all debate this issue till we are blue in the face...

the 2 racing together is embarrasing to our sport if you ask me...

Will Masami race in 1/12 class? If not, just like a F1 race without Michael Schumacher.
