If you check out the results page again.....check out the 19t touring Bmain! all 10 drivers did 27 laps and first through tenth were 3 seconds apart! I would have loved to see that freight train race!!

That's the way they qualified. Click on race results. Two people didn't even race.

X-ray....The BEST TC chassis ever manufactured in the WORLD! I've been saying this since i got mine in 2001! And i still have it to this day! pillow-ball and ALL! real shame they didn't pursue trying "short" pivot-ball arms.
Incase you haven't noticed, other chassis manufacturers sent a small number of drivers, if any, to this event

I bet Losi and Corally had more than enuff drivers there. If companys like Tamiya, HPI/Hotbodies, and Yokomo decide to ignore the biggest RC race in the world (800 entries every year) that's thier perogative. In the US indoor carpet racing is king (and I dont do it but I understand how big it is) and XRAY, Corally, and Losi get this and field teams at these races. This is part of the reason that if you go to a club race in the States (except for maybe California) you see more XRAY's now than any other manufacturer. In Florida XRAY and Corally way out number any other manufacturer with Schumacher a distant 3rd. I know Tamiya, HPI/Hotbodies, and Yokomo are all great cars but they dont seem to suport or sponser indoor carpet racing and until they do I belive Xray will be king at these events.

Just my $.02

i disagree. most if not all manufacturers hone in their cars on carpet. why do you think the later generation x-rays have shorter arms? to change direction quicker..... on carpet. IMO, carpet is where you really find out what a chassis is made of. things happen so fast and you gotta be in another zone just to stay alive. traction...traffic...small confines....WHAT A RUSH!!!!

World wide YES in the U.S. NO. I live in Florida and only race Asphault, but I know that indoor foam tire is way more popular. I see your in AZ you have great weather year round (like we do in FL) but in the North East and Mid West in the Winter all you've got is indoor. Here in FL you car run onroad, offroad, Nitro, etc.... outdoors 12 months out of the year. I doubt that's possible in Michigan, so if you wanna race RC cars there at that time you've got less options making indoor carpet racing so popular. If you've got any doubt look at the turn outs for the ROAR Carpet Nats. compared to the Outdoor nats. The Snowbirds, and Clevland get more entries than any other races in any class in this country and probably the world. So if asphault is more popular it sure doesn't show it.
