Most radio company's don't want their drivers using any other radio equipment. That is why Futaba and Sanwa are working on their own DSM. If you're sponsored by JR or Horizon, then using a Spektrum shouldn't be a problem.

I can tell you that none of the team Kyosho cars had any hop ups - pretty much ran out of the box, however a lot of the team used the lay-down throttle servo set up as this puts a little more weight forward ( Peter Jovanovic ran the EVO set-up) ...also, there is a new spool assembly, i'll get a shot and upload it when i get home..

Jaykay, those body-off pictures will probably be on SGrid Online (www.sgrid.com), and in RC Car Magazine. I need to get back to the USA, so I can get back to work on all this - am now in Singapore at the airport, on my way home. My goal is to provide a "what happened" report on SGrid Online, and prepare a full race report for RC Car, complete with lots of high-res photos.


As to Chris' car, there were two problems. The first, was losing the antenna tube, which caused glitching. The second is that as the race neared the end, the back end of Chris' car got more and more "loose". The officials up in the timing tower were all talking about it after the race. If you want more or less a "lap by lap" description of the Final, it's posted on SGrid Online. You can also download the race results, with lap times, if you want to compare things.

As to Keisuke, he started the race from dead last, after being involved in an incident when Josh spun out, Peter hit Josh, and Keisuke had noplace to go but into the crashed cars, with all three cars then rolling down the track (see photos on SGrid Online). Keisuke was the last car at that point. As the race went on, he took his time working his way up to the front, and then seemed content to simply follow close to Chris once he caught up. At the 45-minute mark, he was maybe ten feet behind, and allowed Peter and then Shimo to go by him. He had his "game plan" and stuck with it. Keisuke didn't really put the pressure on until the race was nearing the end, by which time Chris' car was extremely loose. The radio problems didn't help any, but that wasn't the only thing going on. Once again, had it been a 30-minute race, or a 45-minute race, the racers would have done things accordingly. However, it was a 60-minute race, and Keisuke was up front when the checkered flag was waving.

that not only did he have glitching, (i didn't know about the glitching until i read it here to be honest with you ) but that the rear end was also very loose towards the end. Mike Myers also noted this above, and alot of others watching as well. it's a shame because he was seriously dominating for the entire race.

This is just another case to prove that pit strategy (eg when to change tires) is also a dominant factor for victory...

tosolini's car had more than enough tread on them. i even went and looked at his car when he was cleaning it after the race. he was using 55 shore tyres. he used these to prevent a tyre change and to stop traction rolling.

It was definately a radio problem

By the way, congratulations to the podium finishers and the top ten racers for a great finish. Congratulations also to all the racers as to me you guys are all winners because you were able to race and compete at a very nice facility, meet with factory drivers and learn a bunch of things, and represent your country. Now for us who were "a little less fortunate" to attend, we can all just talk about what happened and rely on different sources for missing a great big race .
