Let me ask this one question though.......

If you had your name on a product that you get royalties from why use something other then that? Are you trying to tell people that the product that you have your name on is not as good as others out there?

Just my .02$

what is the rule on overall length or wing mounting? can it overhang the rear? These guys have the wing slammed to the back and it looks like they overhang past the bumper. I thought there were rules on this, but perhaps not.

in the us at least, horizon distributes spektrum (do not know if they own them). horizon also owns losi, which competes against associated, who imports lrp who competes against spektrum. horizon also distributes (owns?) jr, which competes against futaba, airtronics, etc., whom many pros are sponsored by. apply this same scenario against the overlapping product lines that sponsored racers run and you can see why one product under a specific distribution umbrella may not have wide acceptance among the pro's.

as for the worlds, great coverage via all the web sites. once again the euros are showing their strength on the pavement.

Rick also used the "Wheel" on his M11.

Just like Barry used to when he used to race.

Anyone know what Base motor Jim is using for Paul? I know he's used both the V2 teardown and the Cobalt 2 teardown.

When it comes to the World's Surikarn steps it up.

This makes 3 finals in a row?

When was the last World's when Masami was not in the Final?
