Yes, if only there were more drivers out there with the TC4 at the Worlds. Naoto, Bruno, and Volker would have never had a chance.

I really like my TC4.
But I prefer just about every competition touring car made after it (except the TC5, now that was a pile!)

But on topic, yep, things have come a long way in a short period of time.
I got out of RC just as lipo and brushless was starting to come in. Been back into it for a year or so now and I couldn't believe how much things had changed, still trying to catch up!

Only Yokomo,Tamiya, and HB have won the worlds, and the tc3 had the pace to win it all in 2000. Imagine if it had been a well tuned tc4 instead ??? No Xray,Serpent,Shumacher,Vbc, Top, Durango,Corally,Hobao,Sakura,Cs one,SpecR R1,kyosho,jl10E, have made it as far as the tc3/4 !!!!!!!
BERT will probably win the Worlds with a tc4 !!!
The Ntc3 already won a Worlds title !!!

Imagine if they entered a '15 Xray or '15 Yokomo in 2000!
Some great logic you have there.

You cannot apply the word "logic" to bert. Also these words do not apply to him as well: "common sense" "reasonable" etc.

The tc3/4 was also robbed of a Worlds Championship when Hara took out Pavidis in the first turn of A1..... That should have been a huge penalty, if not a DQ !!!! Watch the video....
The tc3/4 did in fact win, if all was fair and square...

While the collective membership of RCT readily understands and agrees with your sarcasm, Burt will translate this as being an actual complement. Just sayin!
