Add three more. LACK OF SKILLS.Sure some will get mad at this and say if the top US guys deserve to be here. The fact is their sponsors don't think they are good enough.

I'd say the economy doesn't help, but I'd also say the popularity decrease in the US has something to do with it too.

I think his comment was really since the TC market is down that companies rethought going since it's a huge expense and the few left sent the ones they thought had a chance or made the mains before.

Isn't Lemieux there?

I totally agree with Howart, and not to burst your bubble or anything but if people like you stopped running stock for 5 years in a row and stepped it up to mod, maybe US drivers would not suck so damn bad at the world's.

I run only stock thats weird because i could have sworn ive been running 19t and 10.5 at all the races to. Very tough to practice mod when you dont have a track to run it at.

I know! Who cares about the US!! 12th scale showed they cant cut it on asphalt, leave the black stuff to the real quick guys. Has TC practice started yet? I saw a lap sheet with TC drivers names on it earlier in the week but redrc hasn't had an update since naoto was crowned. I'm guessing timed practice starts tomorrow
