A2's done, Hara wins, Karn, Jilles, Neils, Tanit, Drescher, Paphon, Suangka, Meen, Tanaboon.

I was 3rd for a few laps but somthing went a miss and I fell back. But I'm in good shape for the last final for sure. I passed a few cars off the line thanks to Oscars Mad HorsePower. Spool was in full effect braking in the first corner, it was a BLAST.

Peace out from Thailand.

Hara, Karn, Drescher, Jilles, I don't have the rest, but I got 6th, WOOOHOOOO, and I got to run Hara's motor in the third main, OH MY GOSH, Land Missle.

Banquets in a few hours, Jilles birthday was today, the Much More guys got him a cake and candles.

Tanit was the highest finishing Non Factory guy, he won the trip to RROC USA. Can't wait to race this guy at home, he's fast.

Hats off to Praphon, he and I diced it up a bit, kid sure can drive a one-way car.

Tanaboon's car was very good all day, but had mechanical problems the first two mains. But finished strong in the third. sorry I don't have the details, It's hot a sweaty, and I'm ready to take a shower and a Nap.


SUPER HUGE thanks to the RCS Staff, Andhy Djinto, Mike Reedy, and of course the motor Guru OSCAR for taking care of my motor needs all weekend. Great Race, Great Track, great weather. I can't wait until the next race here. I'm going to do what ever it takes to go.


Signing off from Thailand
Charlie.

Judging by his sig he works at Novak, no prizes for guessing what electronics he was using then

Many Thanks Guys!!! I got a motor From Oscar, but the rest was all Novak. Millennium Pro, Xxtra, GTX, Switch, Smart Tray, Platinum Packs. It was a blast, I'm staying in Thailand a few extra days for a vacation now.

There were no Factory Yokomo or Tamiya Drivers here unfortunately.

I'm not sure how long the strait was, but there was a Chicane coming on that if you hit it right you were full throttle the whole way. Longer then Tamiya USA's strait by a bit for sure.

Just of the strait, it was a hard right 180, to a quick left, then to a carosel type corner in front of the Rostrum. another smaller 180, then quick left to hard right into some very tricky chicanes, then a sweeping right back to the high speed chicane coming onto the strait. When your car was good, you'd drive it in the paint rubbing the curbs. THe paint onthe inside is wide as the car, so you had good reference points to work with. Just a beautiful track, and nice a smooth.

I don't get to run Invite next year in the US I don't think. I'm certainly not trying too. Maybe Open Mod. But I was hoping to defend the title in 19 turn really....

JB- Thanks, I'll be back in the office next week, Drop me an email.

Later
Charlie
