Default '03 IFMAR 8th Scale On-Road Worlds

Is anyone following the World Championship that started this weekend in Ohio? I havent found any info on the net in regard to practice that started a few days ago.

Yeah i just done some quick browsing and there's nothing so far,not even on the mighty TSN.

So who is going to put there bets down?

I want a mugen clean sweep,but i think it will be close with probably Osaka first,a kyosho second(maybe Bertin) and a snake third either Salven or Fantini.

There's also going to be a video form the same guys that done the last one which should be awesomeeeeeeeeee.

Does anyone know if Surikarn Chaidajsuriya will be there with a mugen? He races one in Thailand, and I would be a bit interested to know.

I too feel Mugen's luck will hold out for the win, but with Michael Salven second.

Yes, he does drive a Mugen in Thailand. I believe he races nitro cars only for the fun of it.

Default Kyosho

I think Lamberto Collari will win this time with the new Kyosho Sirio?

I have searched high and low for information.

The RB site has some pictures and the Starting Grid has a site

http://www.rc-racing.com/cgi-bin/bac.../read?isel=65-$&conf=sgrid7&csel=&tmprsel=0-$&item=64&rsel=new


Both sites claim more info will be available once the racing starts..tomorrow.

Today was the first day of 'controlled practice' at the worlds, but I haven't found any current info on the event. It's pretty disappointing that there isn't any coverage anywhere on the sponsor club's website or anywhere else. Qualifying starts Tuesday and I think the results will be posted on www.jlapracemanager.com , hopefully.

I'll be there mid-day tomorrow, er, later today (it's already tomorrow). I'll start posting pictures and stuff in Item #64 in the SGRID7 Conference and on TSN once I get there, probably each night unless I find internet access at the track.

Once they start getting posted, to find the photos go to http://www.forgas.org:1089 and follow the obvious links.

That's because he hasn't started posting them yet.

Mike's good about getting his reports up. Once things get rolling, I'm sure he'll have the daily reports up on the myTSN site.

lazy, I noticed on another thread that Surikarn was competing in the Japanese Nationals, so unless he jumped on a plane right after the event, you probably won't see him there.

my friend from socal has been there
for about a week now and he told me
Bertin from kyosho was looking really
fast around the track. he said salven,osaka,burch,cyrul
were also fast but no one really stuck out.

as for motor lamberto collari has the most
power using a sirio.

this is all the info i have but it is all subjective
since all this is just from watching and not on
a timer.

looks like 5 guys have done 30 laps with
a kyosho driver being one of them. As for
Osaka he is doing 29 laps during practice
Salven was also doing 29 laps i will try
to find out which 5 drivers did 30 laps
during timed practice. right now it looks
like kyosho would be the early pick to
tq the worlds.

I heard that Josh Cyrul was the fastest car today in controlled practice.
