The way it was explained to me, is that Mega motors are manufactured by the Picco company, but to Serpent specifications. Picco motors manufactured by Picco are obviously manufactured to Picco specs.

As to Mega having more or less power, from what I got to see, Michael was faster at first (he was catching up to Alberto and went by), but after Michael had his clutch problems Alberto was faster and pulled away.

That's what i've heard also... don't think picco would make an engine under the mega name with the same specs and/or other specs, that would be very weird


I do think that there is a difference in matterials between the picco's and mega's and that's just to keep the price low... how else would they get the price that low?

All the experts in r/c say that to be good, you've got to learn how to control your trigger finger. I think that applies to photograhy too - coming home from the Worlds with 2600 photos was way too much overkill.

Of those, 1/3 got scrapped because I didn't like them, another third got scrapped because they were duplicates or triplicates, trying to get one that I liked. I went through the rest of them making maybe a dozen passes through all of them today, deleting a lot of stuff. I wanted to get down to 100 or so photos, which I'd publish as part of the article I wrote. Around 11:00 tonight I gave up on that idea - there were too many that I liked, and it looked like I was just going to have to spend a zillion hours in photoshop and my web software to post them the way I've been doing. Unfortunately I don't have a zillion hours, as I want to leave for Toledo tomorrow to go to the Midwest Series.

So, the final answer for this time was to post all 454 of the ones I like the most as web galleries, at the end of the article. If people want to see them, go to SGrid Online (http://www.sgrid.com), then to the article on the Worlds, and click on "read more" which opens up the article. Scroll down to the bottom and you'll find photo headings for the following:
Opening Ceremonies
Track Photos
Qualifying Action
Pit Photos
Lower Finals
Quarter Finals
The Final
Winner Photos
Lamberto Collari's Car
People at the Race

Now that all the hard stuff is done, later tonight or tomorrow morning I'll try to post a few of them here and in the Starting Grid Conferences. If I run out of time, I'll do it on Tuesday.

For those of us without Starting Grid memberships, could you give us a little peek?

For instance, could you show us your favorite picture from the event? Or the best action/passing shot? just a favor

There will be many cool things happening for racer's at this weekends Katrina benefit race bodies have been donated for raffle by www.kolorsbykropy.com one 1/8TH scale protoform and one sedan protoform all proceeds will go to the relief fund for those who are less fortunate as us.
Just think one day we might be looking to them for help.
