But today many drivers are sponsored in some way or have their own small internet shop. Many of these guys are not racing for fun but do race for their sponsor or the name of their shop and then anything is alowed, Even try to change the rules to own advance. It seems with the less racers there are there is a hard market to keep their sponsor deal or business alive. It does affect the atmosphere on and even outside the track.
I beg to differ roelof all the races I attended last season and the big events that went on throughout the US were packed house so I don't see too much of drop off...

I think that Roelof is speaking for the attendance in Europe.

Yet on another note did IFMAR discuss any future changes to the class i.e. motor site or Nitro content restrictions in Brazil?

mugen official website has the instruction manual and part list.
the 6 includes front and rear aluminum universal joints.

after reading these material, the 6 seems having a lot of detail changes.

Well hopefully that is MSRP, 729 Euro is nothing to scoff at. I guess with the price of engines having become affordable, perhaps we will see it in the 630$ range when it comes stateside.

It is not wise to have a price far above the competitors who most are under the 600.

The streetprice will hopefully lower.
