The car in the pic below is not the car he won the Worlds with. I ran tech at the Worlds and inspected every car. If you want to know how I can tell for sure...there in no chassis tech mark on the lower chassis of the car in the pic below.

I just want to thank Jorge and FTS for hosting the worlds. The race went off very good. I witnessed some of the best racing I have ever seen. Marc was so dominant it was a matter of just fine tuning all that talent. No one was capable of competing with this guy. He was trying to pass anywhere he could put the car. He was on a different level.

I also want to thank Adrian M. for running the tech dept and Scotty E. for running the race.

People will critisize anything. I saw a lot of people complaning for no reason. There will always be things that dont go the way they were planned. I am just glad it is over and it was awesome!!!!

Thanks Jorge, Ifmar, ROAR, Adrian, Michelle (the cutie selling food), Scotty Fukuyama for awsome batteries, and Masami for the cool tips

Before I began racing RC cars, I never imagined I would grow to hate the smell of wintergreen!

From what I heard, some Bee-Gizzle to clean off the tires, followed with a soaking of TT

Shane and Tim:
What you guys don't like the contact high you get from the smell

Or is it the massive headache afterwards!

anyone have any videos other than the 12th scale over on Orion.
Also, did anyone notice the batteries that everyone was using? Micheal Bruce was using like a 1.67 4 cell pack for 12th, Burch was using a 1.6* pack. and Kinwalds voltage numbers were marked out on his 12th scale pack. Whats up with this? I figured they would all be using the "hottest" packs they could get.

Well first off, I wouldn't always believe the numbers on the cell.

But more importantly, modified is less about voltage and more about runtime. Obviously you still want the highest voltage packs you can find, but they need to have gobs of run time to handle the motors.
