I thought the same thing about Ralph's car, it doesn't look like the 705. But the 705 is there and it looked good in Michael Salvens hands. Didn't Ralph's car have a few of the 705 parts on it (2-speed) for the Nats?

Yeah, I heard somewhere that the Japanese Nationals are going on at the same time. That's a shame cause then company's like Mugen, Kyosho, and Yokomo wont have as a strong showing in my opinion.

Look closely at the front wheel and you can see the dark washer and bolt that are used on the X-Ray axles he was using on the nat`s car. The rear is standard Impulse.
Can`t say as I blame him,I`d go with a proven car and setup if I were him also.
Ummm, it could also be that Ralph is running the 705 fitted with the Xray front axles...

Well, Mugen, Kyosho, Yok are Japanese companies, they should come and represent there companies and countries. If its a World Championship, the best drivers in the world should be there in my opinion. This just gives Associated and Serpent more of an edge, cause they have their best drivers there. This is the impression im getting so far anyways. BTW, Yok should be coming out with their new TC sooner than later, any word on that, or see any drivers sportin a car that might be the new Yok at the worlds?

Default Serpent 705

I watched a Video of Salven and he said the guys are going to have to build the 835 and 705's at the tracks, so it will be interesting to see who drops there proven cars to build a new car at a huge race!!!

I asked about what Ralph was trying to achieve with the X-ray axles and was told that the new geometry was built into the 705.

Actually this is the 1/10 World Champs, not the NT Worlds. I would think that a World Championship for NTs will be in 2 years time.

Regardless of factory teams, most top shelf brands will be represented, personally I'd be more impressed with the top placed privateer.
