I'll second that one! I think that the TC3/4 has seen its day. If Barry had a reliable, good handling car he would do a LOT better. Barry does an great job with what he has.

That is a crock reliable stock up on arms for the rdx,as far as Barry he hates carpet associated does not have a strong team for carpet but have proved fine on asphalt Reedy the nats,so before you go bashing other cars look at all the facts first.

Drove AE for 7 years. NOT BASHING! Fact is, compared to other cars on the market, IMHO the AE car is not as easy to drive fast.

Thanks to all the Stockton R/C crew for a great race.

I must say....very enjoyable reading above! Its always interesting to read "post race" commentary and what topics/race improvements it brings to the table.

Congrats to all the winners.

Broken arms or not, you can't deny results. Anyway, when you put the shovel on the front of the car, the arm problem nearly disappears. And there's something to be said for having the exact same arms on all four corners of the car when you do "stock up."

I would take the best driver one further and and think about the guys who win with multi classes such as off road , onroad, and such. People like Francis, Kinwald, Pavidas, and Joel Johnson, have won in multi classes in on and off road. It really shows the ability to be a pure wheel in the sport. Especially when you win the worlds on and off road. Just my opinion.

Joel Johnson is by far the greatest I've ever seen. The guy was excellent in ANY class.
