Default Dirt Nitro observations

-anyone driving Orion flames out on average three times each
-Hotbodies D812 super reliable and super fast, why do they not sell more??
-Tessman and Ronnefalk clearly the worlds two best drivers at this point in time
-Adrian Bertin, does he do anything other than re-fire flamed engines?
-Question, what ever happened to Losi, where were they?

They seem to be selling just fine down here in Houston. They are spreading like wild fire. It's an amazing kit and people are really starting to see that.

I thought the abundance of Orion engines at the top was kind of interesting.. More like, where was Novarossi?

It was the air filter tube that was damaged (between filter and carb).

He would have won if it wasnt for that.

How would the damage cause it to flame in the pits?

I honestly don't think that little cut caused that, sounds like Orion had to fish for something! To blame that on........ok Ronefalks was cut so what was wrong with Tebos?
