Homestead rc raceway has be come the toughest rc circuit in the world. Many of our international and local fast guys are having a hard time hitting their usual mark. This may be history in the making and I would like a record of this from start to finish. Will there be full coverage of this historical event on video?

I think this is purely done because of engine cooling. It's 35 degrees celsius over there and they have to lean the engines like hell because of the fuel, this makes you want to have all the cooling you can possibly have.

What exactly would you call historical about this event.

It's in no way more or less historical than any other WC anywhere in the world.

Mugen sticker on the nose! Hara did say he sent the wrong bodies to his painter so that is why he has been running the all pink rattle can bodies.

Well said.

That earlier statement of homestead being "the toughest track in the world" is... almost shallow and arrogant. Have you seen other tracks around the world??!?!

I've been told that the new head runs hot. The design actually have less surface getting hit by air

Hot or are they placing the meter closer to the plug because the lower head and so messuring higher temps?

One problem with your ranking stefan. It is based on the 3 fastest laps in controlled practice vs. actual qualifying. If you use the actual laps/time from controlled practice, everyone is much closer to their actual qualifying times. There would be much less red and green on the list.

That could be true too but when you look at the head you clearly have less surface area exposed to dissipate the heat. With it being lower it put a lot of the fins under the body.

Well, where can I start? Lamberto Collari is the only driver with the the most consecutive wins. He also has the most overall wins. He is the KING of 1/8 scale so far, beating a guy with those credentials will be historical.

Why? It's happened before. Kenji beat him, Bertin beat him. Everyone can have a bad week and oh, by the way, he hasn't lost this one yet.
