Once money enters the equation, I'm not sure we can look at the cars people are driving and make any determination about them at all. Most of the guys in the top spots are getting some kind of incentive to use the gear they're using, and not driving what they feel gives them the greatest chance of winning. So, the best we can say is that if you see a pro putting a car in the top two mains, chances are it's capable of taking YOU as far as you could ever hope to go in this hobby. So buy what's right for you, for whatever reason.

The comparisons we can make are a little more subtle. Like, who suddenly becomes very dominant when switching from one manufacturer to the other. And, who is struggling to compete with people below their skill level because their team seems to be producing a car that's putting them at a disadvantage.

I donīt agree. You need to know you weapon yes, but to be the best, you need the right weapon first. Look at Josh from Xray to Kyosho. Paul from Kyosho to Xray. Blackstock from AE to Xray. Most cars today is very good. But only one can be the best right?

I think it is! 2 podiums at the World cup, 2 podiums at the DHI cup is fantastic. Marc Rheinhard is the World champion, and you have to respect he is the best out there. But not even he win always.

Paulie looked like he had something to prove. Congrats to him and everyone at Truespeed and RC America.


The Orlando airport has free wireless. Finally some place I can use it

Oh by the way, anyone flying to Houston on the 9:15 flight, there is a UCA cheerleading team on board also.

Awesome driving from LeMieux.

As for me, the biggest surprise was the amount of Xray and Corally cars. I spotted only one Tamiya from the lists... Maybe you guys run more TC4 and Losi on the club level...
