Ralph (spell it right guys), is out here at RAMS this weekend getting ready for the Nats next month and was spotted wearing all Serpent gear. My buddy wasn't paying attention to the car he was running but I am going to be out there tomorrow so I'll fill you in. I couldn't make it today because I had way too much to finish on building my new car.

fraz:

He was wearing a serpent t-shirt in the morning, but when he practiced, he was wearing a fantom t-shirt. I talked to him in the morning when he was truing his " fast tires and Kawahara " foams. Now, if im not mistaken, these tires are not compatable with serpents. Oh, btw, Jimmy Jacobson pitted with us and he built his MRX-3 at the track. Took him 7 hours, and he got to run it less than 10 minutes on the track. His car was dialed .

Fraz: Use my set-up. You'll be very happy

Very true.
I also believe that cars do not need hop ups to win, and that many top drivers (such as Mugen's Fukuda) do not use hop ups on their car.

Of course, Serpent cars does not require hop ups to be competitive, but everyone should keep in mind that this is true for other brand cars as well.

I believe Ralph is not actually signed with Kyosho. He chooses to run the Kyosho car after splitting with Serpent. The split was because of business, not because of a Kyosho offer. So, he is not actually running for Kyosho.

Bobby,

I get that impression too but I'll leave it for Ralph to say because that's his business.

That said, I was at the track today and yes Ralph is running a Kyosho car and was very hooked up. I didn't hurt that his old crew chief guru Mark Blackketter was there helping pit and set up his car too!! It was a fairly light race day for RAMS with only a c-main in expert but I am sure you will find Ralph towards the top of the pile next month at the nats.

Default Ralph had been my idol!!!!

From Associated to Serpent, and Kyosho. Whatever he drives he is the most humble and greatest driver of all times. He might not have an Ifmar Champ, but for me he is already a World Champ Driver. When I use to call Serpent for Support, Ralph was so Honest on his Set up in Nationals in Ohio 2002 or 2003. He told me almost everything I need to know about his Impulse pro. Whatever he drives, even if he drives a Duratrax Streetforce or HPI RTR He will be on the top ten because of his Skills.

Ralph whereever you are, we will always read your article and support you.

God Bless the World Drivers from USA
