Except for short fat shocks, lowered towers, different chassis and misc other parts they have been testing/running for a while.

But other than that....

We dont know for sure if the Yokomo of Volker and prumper is stock. It might not be, but neither is the Tamiya, Xray and Awesomatix! Ha!

I dont even know about the Hot Bodies, I think there's only one in the entire race.

Everyone in mod class is a good driver, lets not discount their skill by tying them to the chassis flovor of the month.

...but I think the top Yokomo guy in stock is running an OEM version(kunak). He's in first now, so the yokomo isn't junk like people are making it out to be.

Blah, blah never ending circular chassis arguments....

Don't lose sight of the epicness of this race! Oleg is there, looks like Hiro from HB is there. Freakin' Tom Yokobori is there!

Tire drama. Quote from Marcs facebook. "Viktors tire from Q1. it starts again..." See attached pic. & "Ronald TQed round 1 pretty easy. my car has no traction and no steering. no idea what to do"

Showdown between Tamiya and Yokomo (Yokomiya and BD7 RCTECH edition).

X-Ray defending the home turf.

Mega facility!

Hara is on his way to scope out the action. Again from Facebook.

It's a shame that Tamiya didn't send the engineering team.

The only thing we need is Gene Hustings walking around the pits with his video camera!

This race is about as "F1" as RC gets.

Gotta give it to the promoters of ETS for putting Excitement back in the onroad scene... Ive been following this series like it's F1!

Still can't get over how beautiful the Hudy Stadium is....

I also noticed that this track is brand new. I don't think X-ray has a big advantage on this track. From what i've read all the previous testing and drive sessions by team x-ray was done indoors.

Yall missed the point that EA and I are making which was to disspell the missconception from Dave's post that Ronald is using a production kit so that no one would get there hope's up about being able to purchase what he's running.
