Do we have a translation error here? What do you mean by "banded"? Do you mean banned? As in forbidden, outlawed, disallowed?

Yes, it's true.

President Obama has just signed a new bill that will make onroad nitro racing illegal.
Infractions are being punished by death penalty.

This is the first global law that the US have been able to push through, so it'll be valid globaly. (The next ten global laws are being implemented as we speak. A global law against un-american behavior is supposed to be next)

Romours have it, that the government have gotten tired to be beaten by an Italian and a German at the last ten WC's.

Enough's enough, right?

Banning 2 stroke engine has been talking about for years...so far, nothing is done. So 1/8th is still going strong.....just not strong as electric.

2stroke motors are no more in atv's and motoX, but I don't think they'll ban a 2 or 3cc motor
