Just a question not trying to start anything(actually making a point)

Thanks,

Since noone answered I thought I should.

A decision was made and all tires returned to the organization for impound. Next day, today, we were given only 2 sets (from the 3 we gave last night). So we would have 2 sets for 4 rounds.
During the day it was decided to do another set of qualifier (6th in total but minus one from last day). For this round we were allowed to use ONLY the tires from timed practice from yesterday, as there were the only tires that were used by ALL drives only once

If we were suppose to run on rain there we be no other tire available. We would have to use the slick tires (as people already mentioned, if it's wet there is no problem, damp conditions are the problem). Also NO addititives of ANY kind were allowed in case of rain

MRT are trully waterproof esc's, I have found it myself numerous times since we do race in rain

In onroad I don't think so. In offroad he missed the A at the worlds in Finland in 4wd (he did win 2wd that year though).

Default Atsushi Hara

What the hell is going on with Atsushi Hara? Anyone can get some report on why he is so behind? He's not even in the top 8? Are his electrics OK? Somebody please give us some insight?

Hara BQ'd. In a field as fast and tight as there is, one bobble can bump you back a ton. I doubt it has anything to do with his radio, his motors, or anything else. He may have made a mistake or two (yes he is human ) and it cost him.

Well done to Andy Moore on his TQ. Brits are dominating these worlds!

I think Masami is perfectly positioned for the strike though Billy, what happened??

What up Mr. Rossi?

Go PEAK/ORION!!!!!

It will be highly disapointing and improbable that a V2 PEAK/ORION does not win.

Just who and what car will be the difference? What is Masami running for Batts? Are there any runtime issues that will creap up in the mains?

Is Marc still running the Mazda? Is he afraid to make a change to the popular body or is that as fast as he can go? I guess the Mains will tell us everything. Let us hope that it is a clean fight and the best fastest driver of the day prevails.

Now that Masami is running Orion he and Rick are my sentimental favorites. Don't know if Rick can drive hard enough to win without crashing like the top 3.

Just don't think Paulie will beat all 3 of the top guys.

With the way Andy drove in 1/12 (didn't know he was that fast in 1/12) he may be the one to beat.

Best of luck to Paul and Jim.

After having a blistering carpet season and great showing at the Nats - it is great to see them in the show at the Worlds.

Go get'em Paulie

I know this is a bit off subject, but does anyone else think they missed something great in not seeing Masami race 1/8 On-Road and Off-Road?

How many WC would he have then?
