GO PAUL LEMIUEX!!!!!!!!! GO PAUL LEMIUEX!!!!!!!!!
It's yours bud............I can feel it! Yes that is my new prediction.........lol!
So you are bashing Masami for hitting someone but cheering for Paul L when he did the same?
All info I have seen was that Masami hit Andy, and later Paul hit Marc....

Something like this happened to Mark Pavidis at the 2000 TC Worlds at Yatabe as well if I remember correctly..... With Pavidis out, Hara could win for Yokomo.

I think by reading your post, you do not have "a lot of respect" for Masami.
Racing incidents happen all the time.
Possibly the best example is the greatest ( by stats anyway) F1 driver of all time, even Schumi still makes mistakes.

I think Paul hit Marc because he's car slowed down suddenly when the belt snapped..... not Paul's fault really

I really doubt that unless any of you guys are actually at the track, you would NOT have seen the 'incident' well enough via the orion coverage to say anything at all.

Until better footage of it comes out, keep your bad-mouthing to yourselves.

[QUOTE=johnbull]He may not have won a TC worlds yet - only 4 guys have, Spashett (Losi), Hara (Yokomo), Surikarn (Tamiya), and Rheinard (Tamiya) but I think he'll do it quicker than you and I will. [QUOTE]

For a multi titled rc driver to hit Moore on A2 is unusual, it may be intentional or it may be not. Masami got his penalty alright, but for so many reasons its unfair cause it will change the result of the race and may have violated the deserving winner. That's maybe how rc racing should be. Shame.

Your probably right............I think I should have said that I have a lot of respect for his talent.

Thanks for correcting me.

If that's the case then my apologies for blaming Paul
Anyone actually saw that final and how Masami hit Andy?

According to a post 2 pages past.

Xray ůs Paul Lemieux won A2 in dramatic fashion. At the start of the race Yokomo's Masami Hirosaka bumped Hot Bodies' Andy Moore causing him to drop several positions. Masami took over the lead but was either issued a "stop and go" or pulled over out of sportsmanship. I was too busy looking through the lens on my camera. When Masami pulled over, Tamiya's Marc Rheinard inherited the lead with Lemieux in tow. Lemieux had the fastest car or was simply driving the best, as he was all over Rheinard. About midway through Lemieux nailed the rear of Rheinard's car because one of his belts broke. Lemieux was aked by the officials to pull over and let him by. Rheinard was out of the race, and before Lemieux realized this three cars had passed him while he waited. Tamiya's Rick Hohwart was now upfront with Associated's Craig Drescher in second. Drescher eventually passed Hohwart, but had motor trouble with his brushless system and couldn't finish the race. A lap later Hohwart's car stopped for some odd reason. At this time they speculate his speed controller failed. With Drescher and Hohwart dropping out, Lemieux took over the lead on the next to last lap and went on to win.
I don't think we are talking about the same kind of hitting

My 2 cents
