Don't count Serpent out yet. They have a lot of talent at the worlds. Don't be surprised if you see them on the podium!

Not only was Tosolini extremely fast yesterday (clearly an edge on the field) but his car looked very easy on tyres etc. Some of the others (including other Kyosho guys) were starting to get ragged by the end of the 10 minute runs. There looks to be some work to do to get the cars to run through the hour final.

Some of the mugens look like really good race cars for the finals, and the Magic G4S was strong in the last round also. There were a couple of guys who were desperately unlucky in the final round of qualifying (eg Fukuda, Camilleri) when on fast times, so there's plenty of competition left yet. Tosolini though, looks very, very strong.

Because of the tractionroll "problems" drivers did run with narrower tires, to get good results in qualifying, so for the finals where you need more runtime, I think drivers will have to deal with tractionroll, so have to take it more easy in some corners, if they don't, end of chances.........

Am I right?

no, you can run narrow tires for the entire main, just need to play with tire compound, which by now they should have figured out.

Didn't think of that.......

A harder compound gives less grip, so you can run wider tyres then also....
But we will see.....
