Very true but go back over the last 20 years. I would bet 17 of the last 20 years was won by teams with a top 5 payroll.

Hey even underdogs win sometimes. Hell not even Tiger Woods can win them all.

Paul Lemiux is the king of carpet and the rest are just wanting to be on the top. He is the Tiger Woods of foam carpet racing. I think right now it is something 99% can agree on.

Yes Yankees might be the TRF and Hotbodies in outdoors.

Whooaa...Don't put me into this bashing stuff! EA "Xray" team driver was the first to make a joke about Xray coming out with new cars all the time; so I also made a joke about it...please note the after my post!

Amazing how EA makes a funny about Xray and it's just that, but when I make a funny it's bashing

Whew!!! I just read back three pages just to catch up for today. Now my .02.

Every company continues to develop and improve their car. That's what they are supposed to do. At some point, you have to stop for a minute and release the car (Losi). You could continue to find new things that work better and spend eternity in development. Xray on the other hand, actually releases the car that they've developed but nothing they've done has been revolutionary.
Everyone says "looks like an Xray". When I think of "Xray", I think of the T1 chassis with 3/3 batts and the rear motor with that god awful 175 tooth spur gear stuck up in the air. Yokomo, Corally, Tamiya all come out with side mount, two belt cars and Xray follows. Yokomo releases easy access diffs and Xray follows. The T2 took the best of all worlds (yok diff access, Cyclone rear bulkheads, Corally low CG, Tamiya side mount motor) and produced what everyone was looking for. The T2 was supposed to be the car for all surfaces and they've proven themselves wrong and now release two seperate cars. Maybe they need to rethink their own engineering.
The TC5 prototype shows up with a long top deck and then Xray releases the '007 with a long top deck. Who's copying who?
I personnally can't wait to see the new Schumacher show up with the short top deck and see what happens.
I'm very happy with my T2 (thanks to the high quality parts and a lot of help from Jason at BMI), so I'm not trying to jump on the "trash Xray bandwagon". They've built a great team to support a great car. They may have even done themselves an injustice by allowing people to think that the car is only good because of the drivers they've hired. (Dumas didn't miss a beat after going to Losi.
Now back to the regularly scheduled thread:
1. MI3
2. Phi
3. TC5
4. Dawgmeat Edition Cyclone
5. Type R
