That maybe true but how are you going to prove it? He was 2nd at the last WC with the 4. Anything short of a win at Homestead will make it appear that he is slower and I don't care how good the car is, winning a WC with a car you have only even had for a few weeks is going to be tough.

Maybe he will win the Winternats. If he does, so what? He always wins the winternats. What if he doesn't? People will say he is slower.

My predictions: TC he will have some better results simply for driving a more reliable car. 1/8th, he has won everything there is to win short of a WC so it is going to be VERY tough to top his Mugen success, even if the car is better.

It doesn't matter because the fastest car does not always win. Collari never tq'd at any of the worlds races but no one can match his pace for 60 mins. Collari has the smoothest driving line of all the other racers and he wins the races in the pits. Collari just beat Robert at a race that they had in fl not to long ago. He didn't go to the pre worlds nor did bertin. So in the end kyosho will do like they always do and win the worlds and dominate the 1/8 scale class. Sorry maybe they can try again in 2013. The only way collari loses is if he breaks and that is something he hardly ever does. It doesn't matter that the other teams are bring x2 the among of drivers that kyosho is bringing to race. Collari, shimo, bertin= big 3. One of those guys will win the race. Kyosho= Jimmie johnson 5 in a row baby!!!!!!!!! Go team red

I hear Bertin isn't signed up for the race.

Also, Collari has one WC's with BMT and Serpent. Bertin won a WC with a Mugen.

You know what? You talk too much, have been observing you on your every post, and I got PM's from people who know you that all you do is talk, anyway it will be an american that will win the race in the worlds here, and it is definitely not YOU,

I hope you're right but that's going to be tough seeing as how two of the best US drivers (Swauger and Burch) are switching to a brand new car that they haven't even seen yet and a third will not even be there. Then there is a fourth that has the car, ability, knowledge and experience to do it but I'm not sure he has the motor for Homestead.

As much as I hate to say it, looks like a Collari vs Pietsch kinda battle.

I think America's got a pretty good shot, Paolo was on fire that last state race at homestead when Collari came... Yes Xray will have a totally new car, but they will have many hours on it before the race. Lets also not forget about Lemieux, Cyrul, Apolaro etc. each one of these guys are more than capable it just comes down to who's got the better Car/Engine combo, drive line, strategy, and consistency. American drivers also have the home track advantage

I just don't know if OS can cut it at a track like Homestead. Apolaro great guy, good driver but not quite WC level IMO, plus a new untested car. etc. each one of these guys are more than capable it just comes down to who's got the better Car/Engine combo, drive line, strategy, and consistency.

We had the home track advantage in 2003 too. Guess who won that one

I think Xray's best shot is if you are driving one. You going?

lol i think we've gotten way faster since 03 but I guess we'll have to just wait and see. I wish I was going, but doesn't look like I will be

NT1 a copy of MTX4?? Don't think so... I have had both cars and they are nothing alike... For the untrained eye, yes, they might seem "similar". But, aren't all current cars similar??

Robert Pietsch might go fast on quals, but on the long race his luck seems to run out...
great point ...the untrained eye may not see the diffrence.....maybe some should look closer and see the diffrence in the cars on the market...it is a great line up ....this year should be very fun to watch........dont list your predictions...let them run their own psych......besides I will be there and still dont want to predict any winners i personaly like to see it...

In 2003 I saw Ralph Burch walk away from L. Collari, but Ralph had engine problems and that ended his race. The point is that there is guys that can run pace with Collari.
