Default 2008 IFMAR PRE WORLDS THAILAND

Hello everyone, Just wanted to get some chat going about the race. Mother nature dropped some rain on us today so we are having to postpone controlled practice. It is about to start soon. All the guys you expect to be fast are, we just finished our last round of open practice and Masami was the fastest. I am going to do my best to give you an update at the end of each round, but you know how that might go. But I will do my best.

New facility is awsome. 100% new surface since the TITC race in Feb.
should make for some great races.

I will let you know more after our first round.

Later,
Scotty

It was a very good first round, sky's are still overcast after raining most of the day. Next practice round starts in about 30 min.

Tomorrow, we run 6 rounds of qualifying. Out of the 6 rounds 4 will count towards seeding in the mains. Triple mains for all mains.

Thats the latest. More after round 2

Later,
Scotty

Hey Scotty, good to hear you're keeping us updated as good as you can, is there a live website somewhere? The official site doesn't seem to be updated unfortunately.

Say hello to everyone for me and have a great race!

Hey scotty,

Cheers for the updates, got any info on what cars the Kyosho and Yokomo teams are running? Also whats the cell situation, I understand that for the worlds it's 6cell @ 1500g!

Good too see Atshui back on song, seems to have been having a bit of a low key time for the past year or so...

But overall... go Team TRF Three 416's in the top ten... w00p!

Yo Scotty!

So it's not that hot? Or is it just not that sunny? You got Fans? I told my old man to bring you the converter, this way you can leave it with someone who will always be at the track.

Hi Five!

Wait a minute, hold the presses, mark this day on your calendar, Ernst is at the track and doesn't have a trackside shirt on.
