Go Ralphie!!!
Actually, what happened was that he hit the chicane and flew over the timing loop, it still would have been an incredibly fast lap though.

One fast lap does not a King make. Winning four out of the last five races does. And now he's TQ again.

Good luck to all the Xray,Toledo and MWS guys in Ft Myers. I wish I could have made it down this year, but work conflicts didn't make it possible.

Being in the final at the world championship and leading a King makes. Also, Burch hasn't ran 1/8 in how long??

He ran his Mugen at the Cap Classic last year. Possibly more events.

Burch is running the MRX4X.

As for 10.8 or 10.9, that is sick fast. The fast guys can be fast in any of the top cars; Kyosho, Xray, Serpent, Mugen, G4, and before you know it, the Motonica 1/10 sedan.

I like Ralph and he as a great shot to win it but look at the stats, Mike is the King of Fort Meyers! The closest contender to the throne stat wise would be Salven.

Oh by the way, Mike has an IFMAR win on his record in another class. Ralph does not

Ralph is a great driver in any class you probrably didn't see his driving in Texas in the 2wd class in 120 degree heat lead from start to finish. And his performance in the 1/8 worlds in ohio till his clutch gave out. As for closest king of The Fort it would be Paolo.

Man you guys are too sensitive. Ralph is great. I have seen him race and win many times (including ohio worlds). I am not saying Ralph isn't as good a driver as Mike. I'm just stating facts.

1/8th Winternats wins:

Mike= 4 (and this years TQ)
Salven= 3
Ralph= 1
Paulo= 0

If you take all classes into account, Mike and Ralph are tied with 5 each.
