He's now working on the set-up of another engine so he's got 2 sorted but I think if he ran the sorted engine he would have been right there with Jilles and Tosso. Dario ran his old G4 on day 1 and worked on his new G4 today sorting out a new set-up so he wasn't quite as quick as he was but they are making set-up changes for tommorow. Ielasi arrived today and quickly was running well being the Warm-Up Champion. Lemieux got his car better today switching a little closer to Ralphy's set-up but still needs a few tenths to get up the pace. Barry is starting to come to grips a lot better with his G4 as in the final round we were able to dice a little and have some fun towards the end of the session.

Overall, it's really tough to tell where you are at. Everyone is testing so much that sometimes guys that were great one run aren't really on pace the next run. Probably the most consistant so far has been Jilles.

For myself, today was misserable as my set-up wasn't that great and there were other issues that kept me busy trying to sort. I've got a few ideas for tommorow thought so I'm going to throw a lot at it to see if I can't make some substantial gains.

RedRC will be here soon then they can give you guys a lot more scoop and info. It's hard to race, pit both Ralphy and Paul and keep track of the happenings around the track and pits.

I will say though that I impressed Ielasi and some of the O.S./Futaba staff with my foot speed as I sprinted across the track to marshall Paul being upside down in the middle of the back straight!! That was pretty much all I was fast at today thought...lol...

Time for sleep... Time zone finally catchin up with me....

Night all.

Josh...pull your finger out and get on the job....( thanks for the reports )

Stay off the Red Bull + Vodka until just before the semi finals! ( .5 sec a lap faster mate )

P.S. are you and Barry using the new Jaco prism tyres?......see if you can get Barry to keep us up to date with what he's doing with the TM car....

Give all the Aussies a "sac tap" for me ( ask Jesse - he'll explain )


Luis

GOOD LUCK MAN !

This is quoted from the Mugen message board from a post from Mike. "Thank you for the support! But some things came up and there is no way I can get out of it so it looks like I will not be making the World's trip this year! Good luck to the whole Mugen Team!"

Is there any website with live scoring? Or somewhere where they post the results of practices?
