muahdib4 you seem to have a very strong opinion for one manufacturer over another, which you have every right too. But to demean other manufacturers is really uncalled for since touring car racing has as many variables to its nature to be successful, not just the car chassis alone. It is the total package that will delivers results day in and day out.

What is the phrase that best discribes your attitude? Dumb ass comes to mind.

This thread is to discuss the TITC and not your personal distaste for xray products.

why don't u find out why xray is not popular in asia?
the answer to your questions lie there and nowhere else.

Good morning everyboy from hot Bangkok,

very humid this morning and we'll start melting pretty soon...

Short update from first round of practice in groups, which has just been completed. While HB-team seemed to be sorted out really well late yesterday afternoon, with Hara, Ronald and Moore doing the fastest runs. It was someone else this morning... Young local Thai guy Meen (using Xray car!) had a blistering run and overtook Hara & Surikarn towards the end of the run.

Definitely going to be very interesting, also Marc seems to get closer now to the top laptimes which are in the high 14's or low 15's. Fastest lap I've seen myself so far was a 14.81 by Ronald yesterday when the track was great at around 5pm.

One more round of free practice in heats coming, followed by 2 rounds of controlled practice today and the result from that will be used for setting up the heats.

PS: let's keep this a nice thread with useful information and not turn it into another "my car is better then your car" thread...

Not down on the car...just the smug owners who think they're better then everyone else when they win BECAUSE they have great drivers. Not down on every driver either...I've met a few who were good folks but I've met a LOT who aren't.

Read it through again...I was responding to another post and explaining a few things. My original points are still valid...Xray ignores Asian races, only wins on carpet and many owners are jerks. BTW...no need for cursing...I stayed away from it and I think you can too.

Ok what US races do the Asian Manufactures send thier top drivers too???

IIC and the Reedy (Heck that race it s the Tamiya head quarters they should have the entire team at that one) is all I can think of. And that is only a few drivers.


So maybe Xray feels they don't come the US or EURO races Why go to theirs!

So back to the race.....

Are sintered rotors allowed in this race? Also, how many cells for this particular event?

Is this an Orion motor? I've not seen a sensored BL with that kind of endbell before.
