Great win for Daniele with a very well set tactic, cruise to conserve tires and power on at the end for the win.
I don't think the Mugen car itself had any problems keeping ip with the pace.
Fukuda, Rick V. and D'Angelo all ran very competitive lap times.

from what I heard, Rick and Fukuda have both grown grey hair over that Ninja/OS engine.

I thought it would have been a much better decision to let them run for example JP engines at the WC and keep developing this engine until it's ready.

Too bad that Mikey Swauger couldn't be there. I think with his JP power he would have been right there .

If you look at any picture of Daniele's car at any major race, you will see him running a blue heat sink, be it 1:10 or 1:8.

This is out of respect to Picco for the support he gets from the factory.

Between you and I, do you REALLY think that he builds some of the fastest engines available and gets his own engines done by Edo?
Are you sure it was not a JLR Red Dot?

Btw, at the last Nationals over here, I saw factory drivers ( and I won't say any names) take engines of a competitor(Novarossi based) and put their own heat sink on them, because they couldn't get there own engines(Picco based) to perform.
stefan, check your pm

I thought that was a rule that a Mugen will be fast if its powered by a JP !!!
Well in SA thats what they believe
Back to the drawing board for them.

Seeing that a older version of teh Kyosho won with some aftermarket parts on it makes you think is it really necessary to have the latest chassis.
At the end of teh day its team work and all factors falling into place.

Indeed, Personally I find the MRX4 a great car, the R was a bit different and the X is more builded back to the old 4.

I do believe it is not only the guys behind it but which version of the chassis is suited for which track.

Hopefully the need for a new chassis every year will wake up some guys.

man you have hit the last nail in the coffin and i agree with 1000% with your statement .i have seen this sort of thing about putting there own heat sink on a different engines many times around the world.it happens with on road and off road 100% factory backed drivers do this sort of thing ,i seen it in jakarta 2006 worlds off road and it happens often in Australia as well for on road drivers using murnan modified novarossi engines instead of the factory engines supplied and just changing the heat sink from the murnan which has the engraved trade mark symbol of murnan and heat sink replaced with the factory heat sink supplied.but they are murnans they are running not nova factory engines.

excellent statement dude .

Im pretty sure. If you look at Danieles collar, you will notice the "Edo" logo. Stands for Eduardo. But he sure used his own IDM Muffler.


And after the race, a hug from Eduardo himself. Im touched You dont get thoose without reason, you know


One of the amazing things with Edo, exept him being a Helluwa mech, is that his shirts NEVER get dirty. Never.

Who cares? Bottom line is that it was a Picco motor which would certainly make Eduardo very happy whether he built it or Ielasi. I'm very happy for both of them.

Oh you damn "Know-it-all".

Edo and Daniele are working bench to bench in the Picco factory every day. Daniele is Picco factory driver and Edo was his mechanic at the WC.

What do think? That Daniele came to work one morning and told Edo: "Hey, I completely forgot how to modify and built an engine. Could you please make me a few for the worlds?"

You should stop this spamming of yours and give Daniele the credit he surely deserves.
You might have an idea of what's going on in SoCal, but don't asume to know what's going on over here.
