Maybe RCGP will be the ticket, exposure and frequent racing from the top drivers is necessary if someone is going to spend money on it. But then again, they could probably run several seasons of rc...

The top teams spend in excess of $500 millions each year, some years I believe that has been per car, so $1 billion for a year.

The money needs to come from some place, getting involved in F1 isn't something you do "just for fun". :lol:

There is a lot of foul play in this hobby that's for sure.

People are adding a small amount of castor oil to their fuel and it's working for them, we can leave it at that.

There are to many variables to just use one oil or just a base oil, castor oil isn't better than synthetics when it comes to certain points, and the same goes for synthetics. There is no need to pick...

That is more of a problem with the really small engines. The design is usually messed up elsewhere.

Indeed, not much has happened to the engines at all. Better materials, improved carbs perhaps, but other than that it's nothing new under the sun.
