It all started with the Fantom and the original V-one-R.........

GO KYOSHO BABY.....

I've been a fan since I first drove the Trinity REflex and found out it was a hopped-up copy of the V-one-R...That was 2003...and Kyo-SHO has been on top ever since...

Anyway Congrats to all the racers and I can't wait for the DVD!

Exactly my point. Stop trying to defend Mugen, s$%T happens.

Guys,

I don't agree Mugen doesn't have great drivers, I think they have a world class team. They also have the biggest 1/8th and 1/10th scale nitro following or customer base of the 'Big Three'. The MRX series has been very competitive for a long time and even won the title under Kenji Osaka. Rick V., Walter Salemi, Swaugzilla and Vince Jackson are some examples. I don't know what happened but I'm sure Mugen will figure it out.

All of this has to make you wonder how good all the cars will be in two years for the next worlds.

YOU GOTTA LOVE IT!!!!

Rick-V had also adjusting problems, more engines on the track were suddenly stalling, I still think fuel was a problem for a lot of guys.

anyway collari is the man, no doubt about it. what's collari like anyway in the pits? is he a friendly bloke?
That's completely wrong Tom. Kyosho shared all of their setups with all. Every day there were new setups posted on the Kyosho site office. You chose which driver you wanted to copy. They did however charge the drivers for spares - very cheaply.
Collari is a very quit person in the pits. He is friendly if approached and will give advice if asked. As long as you ask him in Italian. He does speak a little English - not so well.

Toso definately seems to be the most consistant guy at the top at the big events.
