Scroll back a few pages and that should answer your question.

Steen Graversen and Shin Adachi are the only team drivers Kyosho (Japan?) have at the moment. Shin is doing really well at the Worlds, has a good shot at the A-main. Steen is struggling but I think he can advance tomorrow.

Regarding the car they have tried many design ideas during the last year. I´ve talked to Steen many times and he thinks the car is starting to fall into place. They´ve tried many things for example different motor positions and so on. If the car ever will come to production I don´t know, Steen told me it was to advanced for the general driver...

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction on the US Driver issue.
Its sad in a way, but many have made good arguments as to the lack of US presence at the worlds, and there will always be another TC Worlds in 2 years.

Well......it looks like the USA boys need some really good runs tonight.

Unofficially Paul has a 10th......18th.....and 25th

Rick has a 16th......22nd and 25th place finish.

I would love to say they are just trying to make things dramatic.........but I don't think thats the case.
