true about getting the runs in early wyd, but at that race I think they count the points from all 3 races so even had masami won the third one Im not sure he would have finished in first, maybe if the highest point cars finished bad........

Lol, yes team HPI/Hotbodies is dominating in every big races. I'm pretty sad that Yokomo still don't recruit a new top driver and unfortunately just lost their second best to Kyosho...

Yeah because Yoke has some nice touring cars for everyone. You can go shaft or belt and have a top notch car.

Yeah they have a way of losing good drivers. In the past they've lost Barry Baker, Tosolini, Hara, Easton, etc. Hmm, sounds like a pattern.

It shows one thing gets your good runs in before the rain hits.
First, Masami is a great racer, but the fact remains is that he has had that many more years experience due to age. Also, the competition in the past isnt quite what it is today.

Also, he does practice more than you think. Just that he doesnt tour as much but that would still give him an edge on Jap tracks.

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.

I am in no mean saying CYCLONE is fastest....again, I was saying CYCLONE is out number the other brand....again, if 1 cyclone (hara) vs 1 yokomo (masami)....it is a 50/50 game. that 2 second faster best lap time mean absolutely nothing if he ended up a DNF....

I have to agree....the $435 USD standard kit of cyclone does not help anyone here in state.........$435 can buy a very decend equipped RDX and FK05.

P.S....I would like to see HARA and MASAMI get their hand on 1/8th racing (for full season racing, not practice or prototype testing which they did quite a lot before..), just for 1 season..........we have seen Surikarn did, now, I would like to see them doing the F1 of RC, at least, for 1 season.....

He's running TRF415MSX - no more Xenon stuff.
BTW, I honestly would not even think of anyone running a TA05 in JMRCA expert class. Not even in JMRCA Sports class ...(next week)..

More stories/ highlights of the final at www.tq-racing.com and top 33 names with their equipment list.
