To tell you the truth, I didn't think he was going to repeat. I thought guys like Volker, Cyrul, and Lemieux were going to do very very well.

Exactly.

The race is open tire plain and simple. AE, Xray, Jaco, Parma, have the ability to put the time and effort into developing a better tire for their racing team and they choose not to. You can't fault Yokomo for doing so. Their racing team is amazing. The three drivers practice and test, there is a mechanic for each driver, and they spare seemingly spare no expense to win. This not unlike what is done in the the 1/8 nitro buggy world.

Naoto is going to be one of the best on-road electric drivers of all time. He is a lot like Masami on the off road tracks of the late 80s and early 90s. You watch him drive and you can barely believe what you are seeing.

Now on to TC.

Grats on the 13.1 Rick
I watched your 2nd Main today, I think you had the fastest lap in that main, and were in the top 5 that round for lap time ?

I don't know how you do it, you don't even practice 12th and put it midway in the B.

My guess is that only the best drivers in the world have access to them, or maybe close personal friends of Masami-san

Pretty sure it's Hayato Matsuzaki. Kitazawa runs Corally.
