Just noticed the same at the German touring nationals last weekend. I didn´t saw the Orion guys trueing their comms.
Now even some Reedy drivers used the V2 endbell at their motors.

Well it's time for me to say afew things.First I'd like to thank Jorge and crew for a fun time. I also want to thank mother nature for friday- since I couldn't make it I got one extra qualifier on Saturday. I also enjoyed the Free Air show both real and Adrian's.The track is first class and I'm looking foward to racing there in August. Hey I only got lapped 9 times in the 1/12th mains using my 19 turn motor. I also didn't come in last- 6th. Over all I was impressed with the drivers-driving- the track.I was also impressed with the new peak/orion motors. If was a fun weekend of racing at least for me.

Adrian- Hi this is the little black rain cloud. I have made some interesting observations of my own . Your words are loaded propaganda for the company that you work for (Schumacher USA) and listning is very painful. This is a web site about news, chat, rumors and discussion. I know that my news to you sounds like doom and gloom but I really think people should know this as they go to the hobby shop to buy. Your company has done a good job with providing tires for racing throughout the US but get off your high horse and smell the roses. This is not a rumor. Proline sales went down because of premounted CS-27s. Your product changed the landscape of tires and now this lack of a certain type of rubber will do the same.

I could become a rumor mill about your Schumacher products but I am not doing that. You do not own Take Off, you’re just an importer so lay off.

And by the way; “what is the correct operating temperature for those CS-27s? Is it 130-150 degrees. I thought naught.

So how are those sales!!!!! Sounds like you’re on a mission.

Rafael - I was just kidding with you Raf....i'm sorry.

I stand by what is said about Take Off's. I think I have been pretty neutral regarding my work and the Worlds. Most of what I have said lately has been relaying what guys told me at the race.

Regarding the future tire issue. There really isnt much that can be done from our end. The chemical used in the tires will no longer be made in the future but that knowledge is of no use to any one. Manufacturers will develope new tires and we will buy them when the time comes. As the sales manager of a company that derives a significant percentage of its turn over from tires sales I am not at all worried...you shouldn't be either.

As far as propaganda I guess I work for HPI and Yokomo too as I also said their car were good.

I'm sorry to all for getting this off topic. I will only reply to Worlds Issues from now on.

Shane - Please close this thread. I will start up a IFMAR Worlds thread tomorrow.

Hi friends. Greetings from Malta.

Adrian, regards from the Schumacher distributor in Malta.

The tyre issue makes interesting reading. I sell Take off and we use them ourselves too.

However the point of this contribution: I am still having problems enlarging the screen on the videos. They are superb videos but I would like to have them on the full computer screen. I downloaded them on Quick time.

Can anybody help?

Thanks in advance.

Joe from sunny Malta.

I guess that when you make the picture bigger, the resolution get worse at the same time.
But the speaker is great.

Found this in help file for Quick time.

"With the full-featured version, called QuickTime Pro, you can do such things as play movies full screen, save files from the Internet, edit audio and video, add special effects, create slideshows, and convert and save video, audio, and images to more than a dozen standard file formats"

My advice is to try another player how could play .mov files and bring it up on your TV screen, the pictures is realy good to look at TV because the TV resulution is so low.

Quicktime Alternative for WMPClassic does the trick.

Alright I will close this as requested, and hopefully a new, less controversial IFMAR Worlds thread will pop up in its place.
