SHANE. Greetings from Malta.

Just to tell you I've been following it throughout, even though I haven't been posting.

Brilliant coverage.........as usual.

Keep it up.

Congrats to Surikarn..........and our Charlie!!!!!!!!!!

He'll know why I refer to him as " our Charlie ".

We had wins from Tamiya, Losi, AE, HPI, Yokomo, X Ray and may be one or two others too which augers well for the forthcoming Worlds.

I counted 4 GRANNIES (TC3 is 5 years old remember) in the top 10. Makes you think, doesn't it!

Well done again.

Joe from sunny Malta.

Just wanted to say that I had a blast at the Reedy Race. My X-ray was SUPER DIALED. I had a mechanical problem in the 7th round that cost me the overall victory. All in all it was another perfectly orchestrated event by the Tamiya crew.

I have photos of Surikarn's 415 somewhere, I will try and locate them when I sort through everything.

Not sure it will help on unmasking those changes, though!

No, the blue conversion kit came out about 2/3 months (maybe more) after the release of the surikarn.

If so, you don't sound very patriotic to me.
As Shane said, I am just a Fan of Xray. Seeing AE win all the time I was happy it was a different Car. Nothin Against AE Or any other Manufactures though.

I agree It's nice to see a different car on podium.



I wish this would happen to F1 racing. Its boring becasue you know farrari (Shumacher) will win.
