unless he changed before the race Victor rides X-ray T2 007

No, no.
Viktor, with an "k", is driving Tamiya since January 1, 2007. And that´s a fact
Good luck to him in the final, as well as for Alexander Hagberg, who is driving Xray
-Go, Sweden, go!

I´m not so sure it´s because Tamiya is concentrating on Off Roads, but by some strange reason, and i don´t think anyone even at Tamiys knows why, they have come up very short of the 415 on all later models, for indoor carpet.
Associated TC5seems to be the only "new car" that still have a "high" upper deck ( apart from the 415 ), and they seems to do fantastic with the production car with 3 cars out of top 5, and Juho TQ.
Quite impressive Good luck to them as well

I agree with you on that. I assume Mr Suzuki from TRF wasn't there and Marc is struggling...

The problem with the MSX is that it is too soft for carpet so I understand why they run the old 415. But there are many things that could be done to the cars instead of just blow the dust of the car that won the LRP TCM in 2004, you don't win races that easy.

They did suprisingly well at the race. But the car looks to be designed mainly for carpet where you need a consistant car. Let's see what happens on outdoor tracks, I'm not yet convinced about its speed on asfalt.

Good to see LRP Brushless on top once again - they seem to be making a habit of this!

Very sorry to see Andy have his problems in qualifying. You could see from the times in his final though, that he was capable of being much higher, fastest laps were similiar to Levanen.

Tis a shame Volker wasn't further up the grid - he was clearly the fastest in the finals but starting in 6th place it was going to be tough. Marc Rheinard too - very quick in B Final before problems.

Congrats to Juho, AE and LRP on the great win - quick and consistent, just what you need.

Juho did not start in the 3:rd main.

Results ( my own calculation, so no guarante ):
1: Juho Levänen, Associated TC5 1+1+10=2p
2: Viktor Wilck Tamiya 415 4+2+1= 3p
3: Ronald Völker HotBodies 2+4+5=6p
4: Jilles Groskamp Xray 007 3+3+6=6p
5: Christer Andersson Associated TC5 6+5+2=7p
6: Craig Dresher Associated TC5 10+6+3=9p
7: Paul LeMieux Xray 007 7+8+4=11p
8: Alexander Hagberg Xray 007 5+7+9=12p
9: Dirk Wischnewsk Xray 007 8+10+7= 15p
10:Sakke Ahoniehi Corally RDX Phi 9+9+8=17p
