2004 IFMAR World Championship Results:
http://www.kyosho.co.jp/web/race/200...a1-10on-e.html

It's still anybody's race. I learned that lesson from the 2006 U.S. Nats. No matter who you think will win, anything can and will happen in an hour long A Main.

I did a complete analysis of the Nats after it was over and Toso had the most consistent lap times, the best and most consistent pit times and his car didn't break. He also didn't change tires. These are the things that won him the race.

Go Kyosho! Bring it home guys!

Good luck also to Mike S., Darin, Paolo and Scotty! Show'em what you got! Go U.S.A!

It was Mike Swauger's call for a tire change after he had 3 laps lead, and quick acceleration and high speed that caused him stripped his gears.

Well anyway that's racing.

Funny?..Hmmm All he is saying is that with the super high horsepower motors that are used by this caliber of drivers. Something has to give. And with these guys pressing the envelope. They take calculated chances in order to win. Toso chose maybe a milder motor in order to save his car for a gruling long main, Swager went balls out to win and had mechanical failure. Both are excellent stratigies. That is what is called Racing!! If not...we would just drag race to see who wins...

So you actually think that Toso asked for a slow motor with less power to save the drive train.... OMG this is the third funniest thing I have read this week.

Actualy Rafiel , Opted for a milder motor For TOSO. That is why we went 5 plus mins for fueling the car. Where Paolo & scotty ran the MF with a little more power just having to make 4-430 fuel stops.. So yes he did run a " mild " motor . Hope tis helps with your discusion.


Let's go Scotty & Paolo. And Team Serpent. Bring one home for the boys.
