Having the fastest drivers on a team is not always a big advantage as some of the fastest drivers are also the hardest on the cars!!

Besides how fast can you drive when your Kyosho is in the pits with a broken this or that. Take your pick in 6 hours the Kyosho's broken parts list will be longer than this post!!

Im on the floor over here.

Lets talk about how you used to be an "A" main driver..... Oh wait thats when you use to drive a Kyosho i almost forgot that small detail..

And when you use to run kyosho how much broken parts did you have?
Probley not may espeacially with your grip it and rip it stile, that i learned from you back in 2004 when i was a newbee the only difference is the Kyosho can handle it. and not so much for your L#@*

One of these days you'll give your head a shake and remember that you bleed red deep down.

re enduro

dave mclean is right in that the biggest factor in winning an endurance race is how durable your buggy is over the entire race . go back and look at past enduro winners and it was always the buggy or truggy which broke the least who won the races, not necessarily the teams with the fastest drivers. the ballistic hotbodies team won last years enduro because the d8 was super durable and the only issue we had on the buggy was a rear outer hinge pin pop out a few hours into the race and we had a wheel come off because one of our pit guys forgot to tighten the nut after a tire change .lol. other than that we had no mechanical issues at all. we ran an os v spec that ran on the same glow plug for the entire race. if you look at lap times we were certainly nowhere near the fastest teams but in the end the d8 performed fantastic.

good luck to all the teams and may the strongest buggy win

Thank you Kevin,

See Steve is still living in the stone age, he sounds like some of my customers: "Well my grandpa drove a Chevy and my dad drove a Chevy so dam it I am gona drive a Chevy! No rime or reason just because!!

Kyosho has won a lot of World Championships no question, but lets face it up untill a couple years ago all they had to race against was a Mugen!!

(Now maybe that will get Chewy to form a team, sure hope so)

Steve we are not running at the worlds, this is Hardcore Enduro, now how many have Kyosho won this race in the past??

Bye the way has any one seen my PIT BIITCH??
