There are some nice bumps on Onkel Sow's track - maybe someone should ask him to test the RRR

Hmm, I think they are protected by Ring magic - Sow and myself have had no success with using The Force to get one

Solid power transfer for bumpy tracks? On power speed and stability?

I believe the Kyosho guys were already using solid front in their FW05R cars while Serpent was using the front ball diff.
Not so sure about the braking ... look at the video of the Ito-Hara lap.

It should be called LLL since they mispelled BRAZIL TO BLAZIL on their driver t-shirt.

Did you know back in the mid 90s there was always what was called a ...(kinda forgot what it was actually called, though) but anyway, during offroad heats some of the racers were always getting faster and faster that eventually TQ'ed and beat the fast (mostly factory drivers) times. It turned out that they were on the fastest track of the day (offroad track became sticky and blue grooved). That lasted until ROAR switched the qualifying systems that to be more evenly distributed. So, a true fast guy can be either in the low grip condition during his first heat and get a high grip track condition in his anothers.
That is actually a very good point Redsand.

Mike Meyers was saying that today the heat "may" get re-ordered according to how you end up after 3 rounds. So if you're not in the top 10, you'll be running earlier and the top 10 run last ... the best grip.

Good for Massimo, Mark Green and all those RRR drivers.

Not so good for MS, Per-Ola, Barry Baker, Mike Swauger etc. You get deeper in a hole ...

Yes they even blacked out the correct spelling before doing that!

Careful ... respect ... that shirt was on the master ... Misaaki Hirosaka!

Well, this penchant for HPI cars needs a revelation by the holiness ... the prophet! Then they'll listen hopefully.

I think they do brake. Just cannot see it. Brake too much and you'll be slow already around the corners. You need maintain speed to be fast.

I did see some videos of Masami driving very agressively behind back markers in the pre-worlds early this year. I have the videos in my PC that were made by Tabushi.

Any limit to upload to 3hobby? Is it possible to do that?
