Hodge,
There's a pic of Billy standing trackside at one of the above links.
You in Cleveland yet?

Just because it does not have the same parts on it like at the worlds does not mean it's not Masami's car, right? There might be many reasons why those parts you mention are not on his car at this race.

The speedo in the car pictured is the latest Masami edition one, just released from Yokomo, based on the KO VFS-1 C2.

But not being there we can not know what is a photo car and what's not...

I'm not sure if Hara will use our packs as there is allot of politics involved as he is under contract with CP. The one thing I can tell you is that he emailed me saying he wanted to get some batteries for the Japanese Nationlas. He gave me a real short notice so I wasn't sure if I could help him.

I told him it might be best if he tested our packs after the race and then we could maybe work something out if it's possible. He told me he already tested our packs and they were very good so he wanted some for the race. I then decided to send him some packs for this race. Will he use them I'm not sure. They might be used but they may have CP stickers on them which has happened to some of our stuff before with other companies putting there stickers on our packs.

In the end it was nice to have another top driver tell us that our packs were very good. So if he uses them that is fine if he doesn't that is fine as well. If he uses them with CP stickers that isn't as cool but I can live with it as I have seen this happen before.

But the corner speed the cars carry looks immense, also there is less tyre wear and component wear.
