Ummm... Uncle Crash's JP FX was simply ballastic ! So lapping the other racers by 3 laps halfway through a 20 minute main is not considered fast, I don't know what is...

And yeah, no problems at all through that dirt road track race we had last weekend doing the Mark Green stunt bumping to A main !



Poof !
Whoa! An asian Mark Green! Watch out Kyosho in the next WC!

Hi,

I think Kyosho deserves all the credits and honor's for winning the Worlds!

They have built a car that's capable of handeling high speed, and is very good on technical tracks.
The Sirio engines delivered them the power they needed.
Ofcourse they have good money and a lot of top level racers, but
to win the Worlds everything needs to be perfect, and having tire problems like Serpent had may not even happen on club-level.
The only one to blame is Serpent itself.

It's the second time in 3 years that Serpent is loosing a big event due to problems like this.
During the 2001 1/8 Worlds they used 4 different cars by the team drivers so the possibility to help eachoter wasn't ther, and now they had this.

Kyosho did do their work very well.

I'll bet that Serpent is going to have some for Sale activities after this bad result

Thomas

No, he was in lala-land ... he saw some form of Borg or something.

Well, since Serpent was probably the 2nd highest spender in the event, they probably deserved that 2 places in the final.




Well, it was meant figuratively.

Surprisingly, the 3R is not so cheap in MY as I was made to believe... The 710 is still cheaper by a bit.
Yes, I know. That old lady gave one price when she didn't have it in stock and when the stock came, she now has a "new" price. So? answer the PM please ...

Love the way he overtook 4 guys in one lap!

By the way ... any videos of this last dirt road race?

Not like that lah.... uncle Sow. Actually we never expect him to use those tires as he brought only few pairs of harder shores (he always like 35 and 37) while the coverage all reporting harder tires are needed at that particular track. Moreover, there is no distributor over there.

It would have been more effective if you posted in Mugen, HPI, and Associated Forums.. forget HongNor and Team Magic (j/k)
