There is no single best racer.. All of the top people, including people who are not weel know have a shot at winning any race.. Most of the guys are more cinsistent then others, but it only takes on race to bring it all together..

there are not only diff classes, but diff tracks and surfaces.. all of these driver have a nich depending on the track and surface.. some guys are un beatable on carpet, but not so good on asphalt.. some vice verse.. some guys have a home feild advantage, and some are fast everywhere..

also sometimes the "best racers" can get taken out and break there car or have an electrical failure. at the end of the day there all capable of winning a race and there all world class drivers.

I think Masami has to be one of the best all around drivers.
He has won worlds in both offroad and onroad.
I don't ever remember a worlds event where masami was a non factor.

pic the avg. from the top 50 races in the last 5 yrs and see who the winners are and the best top ten racers out of that is. I dont have the results but I bet someone does. Or get the Pros to vote like the coaches poll in football does for the teams.

i believe it was in a couple of heats there was a few randoms...and since its the fact that lots of drivers not pro or sponsred get there and dominate so there is no real best...

your #1 choice is spot-on. there is no better racer than Masami Hirosaka. look at the titles he has under his belt. it doesn't get any better than that!!

Hara i also a favourite, he is alot yournger though and still has time to make his way right to the top.
