So many unforseen things can happen during a grueling one hour final.

2010 -
Tebo runs hard and roasts his front tires.
Maifield runs out of gas 1/3 through.
Savoya loses one servo and then another.
Cavalieri loses a wheel.

Favorites would be Tessman, Tebo, Maifield.

I think TY will take the cake this year. Rooting for Kortz though.

Track appears to suit the North Americans and possibly the Oceanic competitors. I think the names you will see are Tessman, Tebo, Maifield, Lutz, Cav, Drake, Hara, McBride, Savoya, Boots, Bloomfield, Battle, Jerome Aigon, Neumann, Matias all in no particular order. Something in my head gives me the idea that Adam Drake might be the big push. The Losi team are potentially a very strong group but you can never ignore the Kyosho crew. The surface will be the big decider, if it stays smooth, the americans will be strong, if it gets rough quick, the Euro and Oceanic crews will come in to their own. It will be a very interesting worlds with the lack of track information too date or knowing how they are going to maintain/prep the track.

Its only really 5 (3 Ryan's, Tebo, Ty) contenders out there and 3 or 4 (Dakota, Lutz, Savoya, Bloomfield) people with a outside chance. With that said, Nobody thought Cody had a chance and he pulled one out of his hat...

I'm betting the worlds will be won by someone completely new that hasn't had a worlds win yet. Hopefully not some darn on-road guy.
Xray really needed a competitive buggy

I'm starting a list with those that are most likely to not win
-Savoya - get's more metal shavings on fuel tank;

+3.... he showed some good form at the recent FEMCA'12 championship. Reckon it might be a battle of the kids between him and Ty Tessman.

Will be interesting to watch that's for sure

Ty has extremely progressed in the last 2 years. He's fast in every class he races. My $$$ is on Ty but in a 1 hour long race, so many things can happen. Sometimes, it is not the best driver that wins but the luckiest one.
