Of course driver aside ! I'm looking at straight line speed... Acceleration out of the corners... Same tires, same car, same gearing with different engine...

I don't think so... Correct me if I'm wrong but I think most will use Massimo engines. Pretty obvious since Fantini is coming and since it would make WM most happy.

Are you trying to tell us Teddy relied heavily on engine power alone and not his own driving skills?

FYI, Indonesia is not unknown. Most Nike shoes come from Indonesia BTW besides most other things too.

I think best is not to speculate. Let us (me, you and Goldfinger) have a look in Thailand first hand and tell others here.

Yes. That was in the Luxemburg EU race where he won the EU open with the .12 Mega engine and the 710 combo. Everybody saw that it was stock and not modifed.
