I also thought it was interesting looking at the banners in the background and seeing a "Mabuchi Motors" banner.
heh.. the remote looks so BIG in hara's hands ;-)

the sportmanship at the 4 minute 25 second mark when they bump, the 2nd place waits for the one he bumped to recover. how nice. =)

is it me or does masami carry alot of corner speed and attack like no other, while atsushi has lines like rails?

the closest to a track like this is the Tamiya (aliso viejo) facility, but even then its not this big =)

Man i wish there were tracks like that in the u.s.
No, Hara lost last year from TQ because he did some small mistakes, and that was enough for Masami.

My mistake, one thing Ive noticed also is that masami's motor can actually keep up with hara V2 unlike last year where you could see hara pull on masami on the straight.

Better clear things out here...
In one of the finals last year, hara did a small mistake and the car broke, but whatever. They are booth fantastic drivers.
I would be interesting to know if Masami used IB 3800 or not.

I still remember the recent WORLD 12th scale between Masami and HARA....8 full minutes of racing, when everyone thing HARA took advantage of Masami 1 little over turn at the 3rd lap..........MASAMI fight back untill the 7:45 mark and took over Hara and the championship....

This time....Hara return the favor in the other way....WEATHER....LOL.

Still...I think HARA will win of Masami just because the HB CYCLONE are way too much for Tamiya and Yokomo.....Cyclone are just good for these ppl, I doubt ppl in states can deal with this car better then they are.

If the cyclone didnt cost 34534523432423 out here in the states ;-)
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... =)

ahhh such a nice car the cyclone is.. i mean the HPI i mean the.. cough =)

lol..

Atsushi Hara 28 8:12
Masami Hirosaka 28 8:10

looking at their best times in the mains, I dont see how anyone can say that the hb car is to fast for a yokomo to win.......

It's about consistency... (and a bit of luck factor sometimes)
