Very impressive picture! He could start a museum with all that stuff! Still the best driver in the world.

I talked to him a few times at Reedy Races and the Worlds in FL. He is staying in it to win a Sedan Worlds. Thats the only prize in electric racing that he has not yet won.

It is pretty amazing that he's held on to all those cars from the past. I agree he's the best ever and a really nice guy too to could of time's I've had a chance to talk to him at the Reedy Race.

I had that Schumacher Cat XLS when I was 16...and I didn't even know Masami was one time driver for Schumacher...I thought he was always AE 2WD off road and Yokomo Dog Fighter 4WD off road....

When I saw that last year WORLDS DVD...they have asked why was he not entering the 1/12th WORLD....his answer, he want to concentrate on the 1/10th TC - the only title that he has not yet won...too bad that didn't happen to him. There is always 2008 World.

Default MAsami

I remember reading about MAsami after winning the off road worlds in 1989 or 1990 and he drove a victory lap backwards and with his TOES!!! (using a stick radio)..He's the MAN.... and so was Cliff Lett

If you guys look closer at that pic, the elevated level just behind him appears to be his World Championship cars. He has won 14 W.C. and there are 14 cars including his Schumacher XLS Cat. He also won 2 W.C. in 1/10th pan on road and they are there on that level too. Truely a great picture.

I don't know who is second in EP since there are a few multiple world champions. The closest to masami would be lamberto collari in Gas who just won his 8th consecutive 1/8th scale title.....

I don't know if people know this but masami entered the first ifmar preworlds for sedan gas with prototype Yok sedan in 2004 and was dominating the main until he blew up an engine... He didn't attend the actual worlds but it just goes to show his talent....

I'm not that impressed with all the trophies :P

I'm more impressed that he has all the cars and bodies that he has run over the years. Heck I think the body I used last week is already being used by someone else :P
