i would have to go with easton if i were to bet on a US driver that would make the show. the guy just always finds a way to make the A at every tc worlds. i know he was in it in south africa, and in the US. dont quite remember if he was in the one at yatabe when hara took it home. i wish i could find my video of that race to find out for sure.

Default Masami

Im looking forward to seeing how masami goes, this IMHO has to be his best shot in a while with a decent car. After the SDW, and SD/CGM, the BD Has come along way!

And i think I noticed too that he wasnt entered in the 1/12 event, anyone else notice that?

I like to see Jilles Groskamp win.
The reasons for that are:
  • He is good
  • He is Dutch
  • He is a nice guy
  • He drives a good car
  • He has been to many times the good second behind Marc

My understanding is that this will be Matt's last event. It would be killer to see him make the show at his last event.

Yokomo is usually quiet and flys under the radar and then come worlds time cranks it up a bit. Would love to see 3 or 4 BD's make the show too!

Nice to see a good sense of humour!

Although the Swede's were a match for England...

Anyway, my tip for the title is Rheinard. Almost unbeatable on current form.

Andy Moore will be top Brit, great international form recently.

My hope for the title is Masami. Nobody works harder on raising the RC standard. An ever-present in major A-finals. Could this be his last chance before age finally catches up with him?

I read a earlier post on this thread that Matt Francis was not running a Losi car at this race. Does anyone have any info about this?

I would find it very strange if he changed cars for one last race. He's been with Losi for so long , but over the past few year Losi has run a few of thier top drivers off (Easton,Numan, etc..) so I would be surprised but no shocked if this were true.

my picks

Masami has always been my favorite. He's about the nicest person you'll ever meet. I'd also like to see XRAY (RCAmerica) do well. If I had to put money on it I'd go with Marc though.

I hope Masami is actually running the 12th against Hara and defending his title........still remember the last world, made a mistake on lap 2 (or 1, I forgot)....spend good 7:30 minutes behind HARA and passed him on the last lap....that was not luck, that was SKILL.
