The man that deserves the most credit is Yoshioka. This guy always manages to put in big performances in big events yet rarely races outside of Japan. Big raps to Rheinhard and Moore for adapting so quickly to the 8 minute format and making the As.

its about 350 (pounds) in the UK, which translates to about 400$ here in the states.. im sure it'll retail around 380 in the us :P and then you have to think about the availability of parts... =)
Try $610 when converted from 350..... and you wonder why us UK guys feel like we are getting a raw deal!

We got to face this fact, he is getting older and not as quick as he used to be, so he has to rely on experience more than Hara, who has both experience and reflexes.
You got to be kidding me, not as quick!!!!!!! If he lost anything and is still in the top 10 at every major race he goes and he is loosing his reflexes!!!!!!! Did you watch the same video I watched. I saw nothing slow or lack of reflexes.

Yeah he might of had less comp but he has won a world title or national title every year for I think it is 20 years now. So comp has been great the last 5 years and he is still doing it. Alot of guys have been racing since the mid to late 80's and are still racing but no one has done what he has.

Exactly. To even say Masami is loosing skills is crazy. I would love to have the skills he supposedly lost. as would about every other racers in the world.

Anybody know the reason why everyone used the Dodge Stratus AP ... is it so superior to any other body?

Strange to see Hara not using the usual Ride Honda.

Yup, if you have the biggest team, then you should have many cars in the A-main.
