It's time to STOP these pointless threads to promote your Xray brand, OK !!!!!!!! Yokomo members don't brag about their stuff everytime Volker beats another Xray car ! So please, have a little respect for other brands, and STOP it !!!!!!
Actually. If you look at the guy who started this thread doesn't even drive an xray. He started it because, well, that's what he does.

As a black man and a Yokomo BD7 owner, I disapprove of you dragging the rest of us into this battle. However, I also drive a Xray T3 so I'm proud of how the brother of my T3, the T4 is fairing so well in the ETS.

This thread was doing just fine, but that all changed when somebody brought in a hand grenade!

Hopefully there will come a race where the same number of cars from each manufacturer will battle for the 'domination' title.... Until then, the small Awesomatix team is dominating against much bigger teams....

I agree. I think we all benefit from more manufacturers and teams joining into the fray. As cool as it is to see the Yokomo BD7s, Xray T4s and the Awesomatix cars doing well, I'm really gunning for the Team Durango car to win some hearts and races. Heck, as a guy who's had some fun and successful moments running his Associated TC3 touring car and SC10 shortcourse truck, I want to see Keven Hebert and a few others keeping/putting their TC6.2s into the winner's circle.

"Dominating"

Two races in the US, where total entries were almost HALF that of European races.

I think you fail to see that talent in Europe is significantly better than talent in the US. I'm pretty sure Marek Cerny would come over here and wreck shop in any stock class with his T4.

There's a big difference between racing as a hobby and racing as a job. Those guys in Europe get paid to race.

Smile

A pro from Europe won't TQ here in the states if he gets blocked in every qualifier by the competition....... Traffic will slow him down enough to give others a chance..... Don't think the Awesomatix boys get the red carpet treatment at the ETS, just as Bert doesn't get the red carpet treatment at his local track...lol...
