Hard to see a future where Marc is a factor again with the Tamiya.

You can only blame the tires for so long...

Don't know about that. Voelker is just so fast now and so good. He's this fast at this race and doesn't even have Umino with him. 3 years ago he would have been struggling to make the show with out Umino there. It really appears he has learned a lot from him the past few years.

Marc still won 2 asphalt races with the Tamiberry car this ETS series. I'm sure he will be fine next year as tamiya will be ready since its a worlds year.

I hope so. I'd like to see them give their awesome team a better car, and maybe more help at some of these races.

The thing to look at is Prumper's performance. When Umino is there he is right at the top. Now he is a little further back. I think it says a lot about how well the team is working when they have all hands on deck.

It's not Umino not being there which is why Yannic is a little further away, it's Toni R that's missing there, he does the majority of Yannic's wrenching.

So they use a new set every run? Man this tire's are even worse then the Pirelli's in F1

Very environment friendly indeed and what are they doing with used ones I hope they are donating them to local clubs for the young drivers who can't spend so much or something ...

2 cars in the top 10 is not a bad car. If one car was better than the other they'd be sweeping the podium, it's all driver & setup at this level - forget the chassis

RC TV will be giving away a Schumacher Mi5, all you'll need to do join they're facebook group to and answer the question. But, you must watch the live stream in order to find out when they'll be posting the question on the facebook page.

Get on it!

Seriously?

This is the level of racing where chassis/kit matters the most....

We all know that the top drivers can make any chassis look good. If the differences between brands matter anywhere, it's at the very top where the guys are able to extract every bit of potential from their equipment.

It's hard to argue with Tamiya's success at the worlds Dave, you've got me there, and that's been my favorite argument to use in the past. But it's hard to deny that you see 50x more XRays in the pits at races that Tamiya, and they've won zero worlds. So I'm not sure how much it actually matters in real world racing.

Also, congratulations to Ronald for winning again. On asphalt. Ronald is the best on-road driver in the world on any surface.
