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....
i dont think you can purchase them from the shop their like team specified motors i think not sure

The strongest team looks to be HB, they had 3 cars in the top 5 at one point in practice... Same thing goes for KM.... Jilles seems to be racing by him self, Half a second difference is Dominating.

All the Maxima engines are hand built by the very knowledgeable Thai tuner who also travels with Jilles to all the events.

The previous versions of the Orcan engines could have some tuning difficulties because of the extreme modifications Orcan makes to the engines. The currently available 2013 spec versions have a completely reworked carburator which solves these small issues.
And yes, the Orcan engines are the very very fast, 118km/h at the euros.

Hi Francis,

is this really how you feel?

I think these worlds are a chemist's WC, not a driver's.

It all depends on who had the most time to test additives under all possible circumstances at this track.

Groskamp and Hara both live close to this rack....

Hate this stuff, seriously!

Red Rc seems to be off air today.

It's 3 p.m. there now and no news at all.

I hope Eoghain didn't catch anything from the food.

Yes, I'm curious to see who has the best set up over the whole ten min.
I hate to tell you this but those two drivers are one of the best no matter what track you put them in.... Tire treatment is just an added thing to racing but the best drivers will still be near the top....

Hey, I'm not saying that those two are world class racers and they deserve to be where they are right now.

But being able to spend unlimited time to sort out the additives for short runs, qualifying and most importantly the mains, is soo important.

Also look at all the other 112 racers aside the top ten, they all have to figure that tire crap out on their own.

I'm so glad that EFRA went to handout tires for the Euros next year...
