Cool Who'll rule the Worlds next week?

What do you think will happen at the Worlds in Cinicinnati next weekend?
Here is my prediction:

Associated will be very fast in qualifying again, but will not make it through tha main (sorry NTC3 drivers)

Serpent will be VERY fast with the new car and they'll have their international top drivers there (is Salven running TC?)

Mugen will hopefully have Kenji Osaka AND the MTX3 there. If so, that's where I'd put my money.

Yokomo and Tosolini (Hirosaka?) have to make up for their showing at the nats.
Tosolini is one of the best gas racers around.

Trinity: Maybe Kyosho will have their Team there so the Trinity boys could get some set up help for their rebadged V1R :-)


I think this'll be one heck of a race.

I think I may drive up their and watch the races only about an hour from my house...I am gonna be rooting for the boys at Associated (I am hoping they learned from their runs at the nationals). I am also hoping Mugen will be racing the mtx-3 cause I think this car is going to rock and could possibly snag a win...and if it does...it will probably be my next tourer...not a big fan for serpent...and realy do not care much for the trinity car...yok is getting old but it is race proven...its up in the air...the new 705 will be their, hopefully the mtx-3, a fleet of ntc3s, a few trinity and yoks...this will be one sweet race...it could go anyway

Don't ask me why but I have a funny feeling that a certain Italian or French man is going to be the King of the World Cup.

Any thoughts?

I doubt the MTX-3 will be there. It's my understanding from a couple of Mugen team drivers, the prototype was still being built as of 2 weeks ago.

There will be some Ozzies there running voners but they're not factory drivers. I will be very interested to see how they go against the top drivers 'cause they will be coming from the World Cup and racing at the Oz Nats in a few weeks.

I know it's a bold statement.
But kyosho or mugens can't win because the size of the track.
Unless they come up with an optional pinion gears or luck is on their side.

I bet on NTC3 or Serpent.

BTW, I like kyosho and mugen cars. They are beautiful, smooth, and very fast.
