well if thats the case maybe live rc should refund 50% of the money back if they can only provide less than 50% of the service. Its not just the worlds stream thats been bad. it has even been bad from us tracks also, so im not buying the poor south american countries internet capabilities. live rc switched the way they send their stream out and its sucked ever since. yes they wanted to improve but this time they went backwards so far. should of not waited till a week before the worlds to switch and then find out it sucks imo.

ROFL!!!

Guess we'll have to wait for the DVD

Can someone explain to me, why is it call World Champion but it seems like the car brand get more exposure than the country that the winner come from. I mean, look at World Cup for soccer, we remember the country that win but not the jersey brand or the soccer boots or the ball brand that they are using.

For this, we remember Kyosho winning, Cody King winning but how many of us relate that to the country? Like US winning? Japan winning?

I think they should call this Brand Championship rather than world. Just sharing my 2 cents.

First off, soccer is a TEAM sport with ONE TEAM. There is TEAM USA, TEAM GERMANY, TEAM JAPAN, etc. That is it. One team representing one nation. If you want to compete, you have to join your countries team.

IFMAR is an INDIVIDUAL competition, like the world championships for cycling, swimming, etc. Almost everyone in an individual competition cares more about the individual than what country they are from. It's always been that way. And even these individual competitions have brand placement. For instance, Gilbert won the men's road race, but people know he rides for team BMC and rode a BMC bike with branding placed on it. Sponsors make the world go round.

The NEO race should be instilled as the world championships event, world class venue and very well organised/run.

It's very much a team sport at the world level, but those teams are made up of many different nationalities. That's why we remember a company winning, because that team isn't made up of just one country.

It's really a shame this wasn't researched more beforehand by the IFMAR and Liverc people. The track is nice but doesn't have any real technicality at all. The liverc feed is crap. And even the drivers are complaining.

Oh well at least someone can call themselves the new WC soon....

That pic of Ryan Maifield pretty much says it all. Here's to hoping that once the battle begins all will be forgotten at the moment and all racers can put there best effort forward towards a awesome race!

With the exception of liverc, I think the worlds coverage is good on Redrc, Neobuggy and facebook. Does anyone remember the 2009 IFMAR 1/10th ELECTRIC OFF ROAD WORLDS? Oh wait, nobody went so it turned out to be a glorified club race!

Here's a refresher.
