Fabio is like a four or five time Ifmar worlds finalist. I am not sure if still races or not but he's a well known 1/8th scaler. I bet there was more to the story than him just honkin on the car.

Well there was more to German driver Dead Car also.

They already had some issues with the car during practice.
Pit guys brought a whole 2nd car to the Gas/Tire/Misc pits as a spare car to rip parts off, at the beginning of the A-Main.

The other thing, During Germany's first gas refill, T bone action was going on insite pitlane after his refuelling and then his car went wack in pitlane during that fuel stop.

And this is not from someone that someone else that told a friend that knows someone i know and told someone else BULL CRAP.

I was taking pictures at Amain start and thats what the german mechanic said while bringing the 2nd car as a donor car to refuelstation.
And the Tbone part is something i saw while snappping images of the guy that came out of pitlane before the whole ordeal.

I normally hate Nitro, but this was awesome !!!
I had blast watching these guys, the way they drive and how the car go, it is definitly different, and the Nitro Motor sound track changes it mood.

These guys Drift or power slide alot during a turn. Unlike teh electric where they look like they are on rails.

Definetly AWSOME !!!!

Sorry, but what are you talking about?
Germany who? Pietsch, Rheinard or Wischnewski?
Did the German mechanic speak English when he came to the pits?
What's wrong having a spare car in the pits?

Maybe you should sort that all out and try to bring it down in full sentences that make sense.

Pietsch, who wasn't able to run for the entire race after his incident.

And no I can talk German. I stood right next to the mechanic during Registration. I asked him if that was his car, so that i can take close up pics. But then the mechanic pointed at the tech bench, where the real car was and then replied that this is the parts car which they are jacking parts off. Which kind of raised every one else eyebrow.

They other teams normally have a parts box with them, in the refuel lanes. German Mechanic pretty much brought a complete Car into the pits to jack parts off.

The part where Pietsch was out the race, was when he came in for his first refuel.
1. He came in, Mechanic picked car up to refuel.
2. Another car came in for refuel, that car got picked up.
3. German Mech placed the car down, Car went of with three revs which placed it right few feet down the row.
4. Other Mechanic placed his car down right behind German Car, and that driver nails it, slamming right into German car, which caused German car to be side ways and on his next rev sending him into the wall where it then stayed stuck in max throttle. Which where it was over for germany.

He came back into the race just trying to finish the race at least even though he was lapped for a good 5-10 min when car was in for repair but after that incident you can see his car looked like it had issues squirreling around.

But it was still fun watching Wischne... Ralph and Drew and 2 Jap drivers battling it out. until Ralph got a complete 1 overlap. At that point it was Drew Wisch Rein and 2 jap drivers for 2345. and 15min before race end Ralph locked it in for first place as long as he kept it easy steady and stays ahead of the pack. Great race nevertheless.

>>Sorry just woke up mixing up the names<<
