If anyone it would be Collari & Swauger . Considering they both were in the fastest heat and qualified well down it would be them, but who knows really (this is not fact i was just making an observation on pace in practise compared to qualifying)

He is not officially sponsored by Mugen nor HB alllow that happen. What if he did WIN the WC....I know, ppl will say HARA is the world champ, but what about Mugen, what can Mugen get? Or what can Mugen say..?

Is there any past WC in any high level RC racing that is won by a driver but his chassis is not officially sponsored that driver..? Please don't flame on me...I just find this interesting to see a driver like him with a situation like that.

Also, this might be the plan for HB...new 1/8th on road from HB, possible.....
isnt 1st time hotbodies has been slathered all over another brand at WC time

Yeah, but at least they could say that their shocks and turnbuckles won when Hayato won with the B4.

Guess Hara is sponsored by ZAC/KAWAHARA for the event, but I am not sure why there is a Thailand flag instead of a Japanese flag on his shirt.

BTW, what is the role of MASAMI in the event?

Congrats to Robert Pietch taking the TQ using Contact Lightweight tires.

While the rims are 20% lighter than the regulars or carbons they are very durable. I have to say that most guys that used our carbons and tried the lightweights, moved to the lightweight rims.

Here's a early "Thanks" for supporting our product to all of the current drivers at this event!

Xray

Mike stated that while they got the clutch to last for the last qualifier, they have also made so many set-up changes that they got lost. Time to go back to baseline.

Masami is there to become the FEMCA Block Electric delegate.

It's the first time I have met him and he is a very down to earth guy. He said he now wants to give back to the sport and will be an advisor to the Electric side of the FEMCA region.
