Red buttons all over you guys. Just push and enjoy all the little "jack's in a box"

You guys really need to work on your self confidence, or you'll have a collective heart attack sooner than later.

This has to be one of the best worlds just because the three major companies Serpent, Mugen, and Kyosho all have cars that are proven to be good based on thier recent performance locally with not one car at a disadvantage due to a design being outdated.



I just hope someone will release a DVD right after.

Stefan, good to see/hear from you!

And he's right, the Italians KNOW how to prepare, and serve a meal! I lived there 3 years and never had a bad meal at a resturante...Everything comes in waves, or courses, each one beter than the last. I'd love to go back, "Castel Vecchio" in Verona, Oh My God! what a meal!

What percent nitro are they "supposed" 20%, 25%? And since the officials aren't checking are some racers tying to run 30 or higher? Just Curious.

Well the race was awesome yesterday... Bertin has by far one if not the fastest and most consistent cars out here.. Robert Pietch is to me the most impressive guy out here. Robert has not only speed but a good agressive style and good power. I think he runs mrx-4 novarossi power.. Very fast.... Michael Salven ripped out his Mega Picco and put in a BLue headed Pico EVO.. Now he has good power. He was not able to keep up before that point. Taakaki Shimo and his Kyosho powered Sirio ride was impressive in qualifiying until his clutch let loose. Daniel Ielasi was very good and made a few good runs to put him into the 4 spots of the a main.. Every other spot of the 12 will have to fight their way up until they make to the top. Lots of good racers here.. I think it is a matter of getting your ride together in the very few times you go out for practice.. We only had 2 rounds of practice per day and that for me was not enough.. I need more practice to keep up ...HAHAHA. L will let you know how the rest pan out .. I am racing today and will see if my engine clutch combo finally works....

It's supposed to be 25 percent but you can easily juice it with more nitro. Sometimes 100 percent nitro gets sold on ebay. Literally a few drops in the tank can give you an edge. A little squeeze into a fuel bottle and you've got instant edge. Fill your car with "regular", juice the fuel gun, and out of the next pit stop your car has found 3'rd gear. After the race all the nitro in the tank and gun are gone. If you've got three engines, why not melt one down for 5 minutes at 45 percent nitro if it gets you into the A-main?
