You don't need fast fuel stops during practise.

Can't wait for the start of qualifying. The three consecutive laps is kindoff miss leading because some cars work better with a lot of tire sauce. Just wondering if the Tire saucing is consistent over a ten min qualifier? This is going to be one of the most interesting worlds because of the tire treatments....

I'm looking for a new engine for 2013.. Those Maxima engines look good, might be on my list.

I've been told the Orcan GT3 is rather hard to tune, but it's very very fast!

Maxima is the fuel supplier for this race. It is a Thai product and brand. The engines are modified in house and based on the keep-on.

Yeah but look how much time he loses onto the main straight and the sweeper off the straight compared to Groskamp he's definitely not the fastest man on the track in that video. He's also having to wait much longer to get back onto the throttle in the in field than Groskamp.

Very smooth driving,uses less tires and fuel and possibly produces the same lap times as more aggressive drivers.

But if you do buy them in the shop, will they be the same as Jilles is using?

But then explain why he is on the top of the list?
The fastest car on the straight is most of the time the car with the slowest laptimes because RC tracks need a fast acceleration from corner to corner....
