What I find interesting here, with only 3 new sets of tires.

Jilles has found a way to put in 4 runs, all of which are better than Haras' single best round.

Best 3 rounds by points for surfaces other than carpet. Page 3.

Unless of course they only get 4 rounds in, then it drops to best 2.

So Paul has a 2 and 3. I would guess he's saving his last set of tires for the last round. Seems like round 4 he may have changed a bunch on his car. His best lap was a 12.8 and only ran a few 12 sec laps. That's not a difference in used to new tires. Also him and Jilies both had really bad first lap and they started 2 and 3 so he could have gotten together and tweaked the car or something screwy....Just speculating.


I agree though...Its the worlds. new rubber every run to show what everyone has....Not who can out smart the other guy.

Don;t forget that an extra bonus for someone is to use new tires while others run old

I think Paul has 2 new sets!!
He run 1 set for 1st, 2nd, logically new for 3rd BUT he didn't run it due to broken servo, and fourth used for second time old tires. So now he has 2 new tires for 2 rounds, while I'm sure VERY few have 2 new sets (I think Jilles has).

SO my guess is that Jilles and Paul will dominate last 2 rounds while Ronald, Andy, Atsushi at least one. Victor for sure used all his new sets, and maybe Mark did too.

Anyway, it would be way interesting those 2 last rounds

not sure about the tires. but for sure team tamiya is working together pushing wilck in the top 3 after 4 rounds, so there is for the moment no chance for volker and the others coming close on the grid. last 2 rounds runing and should be interesting

I believe Yannic used all his new sets too. Go Paul!

Paul must have used 2 sets already, on that track you don't get faster on 2nd run tires (new kicks in rd 1 and new in rd2)

And the lone Losi goes to the top for the round (so far)...

*Edit* Ended up 4th for the round, still very impressive considering it is by far the fastest round so far.

Paul just threw down the 3rd fastest time of the Quals in the 5th round. He now has a 2, 3 and 3 using qual points. He should be a lock for the main with those!
