So let's get this partying started and see what people are thinking and what new stuff will get tested at the Worlds...

Name - Car - Engine - Tires
Ralph Burch - Xray NT1 - Max
Paul Lemieux - Xray NT1 -Max
Mike Swauger - Mugen - JP
Barry Baker - Xray NT1 or Team Majic?
Paolo Morganti - Serpent 720 - ?
Rafael Angulo - Serpent 720 - ?
Josh Cyrul - Xray NT1 - Novarossi

Tosolini is a sirio driver so I think Kyosho/Sirio
Cyrul did make a move to Novarossi I believe but now Kyosho has the new CRF engines, who knows....
Swager runs JP with his 1/8

Cyrul was running a NT1 at the Byron's race... So I'm guessing that he will be on a NT1 at the worlds... Since he is no longer with Kyosho.

As far as Tosolini - I'm not sure if he is still with Kyosho or not... There is a lot of talk over here in the States about how Toso is not with Corally any more...

But the at the worlds it could be anyone guess...

Blackstock drove for Xray at the Capital Classic in June, and doesn't Easton drive for Serpent's electric team, so that may be who he is going with.

Easton = Serpent and most likely Max for engine, hes currently developing thier 1/10 electric buggy and 1/8 nitro buggy.

Raf and Paulo are also most likely Max for engines

Barry Baker is with Team Magic now so I assume he will be running the car by then.

Burch has been looking good recently but who knows how he will stack up with all the Europeans. I'm pulling for Swauger.

at this level it could be anyone from the top 20 in the world... but I would like to see someone from the USA bring it home... And most the drivers from the USA could win this one...

No Japanese fans here?

Besides 2 of the major manufacturers are Japanese, Kyosho and Mugen!

I'm rooting for the defending champion Fukuda!
