Whatever Ronald is driving will win.

What car will be second might be discussion worthy.

I love threads like this. We are all totally biased here.. And that is what makes it fun.

I think we should figure out which main Dirla will be in... Or worst yet, maybe me

They always say it's the driver, not the car and I agree mostly. But to become a World Champion in TC 1:10 you need the best team.

A complete package like this:

Volker+ Umino+ BD7 = !!!

Does it have that extra as the 2014 worlds is going to be some stiff competition and the normal "World Class Champion" drivers are not driving the xray?
I think the T4'14 does actually have what it takes. I do drive one, but that's not why I think that. It's the other way around (I think that, which is why I decided to get one).

For me, it mostly comes down to the Euros last year. Hagberg was actually fastest. If you look at the lap charts from the qualifiers, it was always his first lap or two being slow where he lost the time that would have given him pole, and for the rest of the run he was faster than Ronald.

But if you look at who wasn't at the Euros, you'll see a lot of names that I put in my Top 5 list. That's why I don't think there will be an Xray on the podium. It's not the car, it's the drivers.

I don't think the VBC will even make the A. Its a good car at a club level. But I don't think it has what it takes. And even if the car does who is driving it there?

As much as I'd like to see Xray win, I don't think it will happen either. I think Volker, Rheinard, either Groskamp or Hagberg.

It's hard to say though. One mistake early on can change everything.

Viktor wins with Marc and Jilles in hot pursuit. TRF sweep, just like Reedy.

Looks like according to Hara's FB page he's building 2 yokomo BD7 black series. Wonder if that's a hint.

Looks like this thread became more about the drivers instead of the chassis, but its the drivers who drive the chassis....right
