That might be a better occasion to sneak an r/c hovercraft under that TC body.

That is a great picture. Last time I ran in water that deep was an old gold chassis rc10....um and it made it 10 feet.

Did they still have to run the handout sorex 36r's in that rain? Thats crazy, I can't believe all the electronics lasted a whole race.

i dont think it had anything to do with the cars in this condition really, more about lines and drive style and setup defiently. In theory a Belt car should be alot better in the wet anyway

No, for the wet conditions at the beginning there was a control rain tire but as this one wasn´t available for most drivers they changed the rules and rain tires were free of choice.

ok

shaft drive brings Torque steer , as in the rain conditions change , when racing a shaft drive you have to take torque steer into concideration of your setup. With a belt there is no need.

The TC3 was not the fastest car of this event, but it was the fastest submarine though!
Congratulations to Jonas Kaerup, impressive driving in the rain.

I don't know if it is true but since they decided to make wet tire choice free I bet that winning the championship was no longer a matter of better car, electronics, or driving but a matter of who had the best tire-insert-wheel combination.

My guess is that this was the deciding factor and AE just got lucky. Again.

I am an AE fun but I also have some experience of racing in rain conditions and tyres are by far the most important factor.

I was not present at the Euros so I can be completely wrong!eek:

Just my thoughts.:

After watching the video, I think I am correct. His car was on rails while the rest of the group was strugling.

I feel sorry for Jilles. Again lady luck was totaly against him. I do not own an Xray. I just feel sorry for the guy. From pole he achived not much. Oh well, that's racing!

So no one else had a set of these magical tires?

Lucky is the first time something happens. After 5 years thats called Dominance.
Having the best Drivers and best car makes Team AE #1
Didn't see any street weapons, TA-04's or HPI Pro2's in the A-Main lineup
