For Cepus and all the people who ask.
My name is Asi and I am from Israel .I am driving off road Rc cars for more then 10 years. Here in our small country we don't have real on road track specially not for 1/8 scale. Actually This WC was my first time ever driving 1/8 on road car on a track. My first laps were very slow as expected and I made some mistake that almost destroyed my car , again as expected I was last to all ,that were minimum of 10 years more experience than me for this category. After 3 days of practicing on the track and trying to understand how to drive this magnificent machine ,the results were not late to come and I started to increase my speed and get much better lap times and from 27-29 second for lap I dropped to 19-20 and even got some 18..., I know it is not fast laps to be proud of ,but if you think of it and bear in mind that this is my first 1/8 on road race and driving ever it is not too bad. I have raced with drivers with more then 20 years of experience ,and finished ahead of them and made better lap time and better total laps in the finals. Actually I am sure that with few more days on the track I could have dun much better.
although I don't have all the needed experience with this category ,I hade very good time and got lots of respect from my friend to driving group for my results. They all asked me about my car manufacture ,setup and were amazed this is my first ever 1/8 on road race ,because of my results. After the first 3 days felt very comfort with car and could push it when ever I wanted ,it turn like crazy and go strata forward out of 180 turns.
The XRAY team where magnificent ,driving fast and very strong. In my opinion it was nothing but bade luck to the team. I have bean there and for sure sea all the other cars and drivers. The XRAY team were the best for the team effort and support. As you can understand I hade lots of question ,and believe me or not I got all the information form every on of them. Paul ,Ralph ,Mike ,Dru ,and of course Martin were all there to support and help with every thing needed. This is what I a call a team effort. One for all and all for one.
Don't forget one more and minor thing , the other brands team driver hade may years with ther car, and already won big race and I can assure you that in the next race it will be totally different story ,when the XRAY team will some more expiriance with car.
The car is build like all XRAY ,with the best materials and durability . As you probably understand I hade some wall heats in the beginning , I did not brake anything. XRAY will always be XRAY, and nothing can be compared.
1. Very strong and reliable car - I did not replace any part all the week but clutch and 2 clutch bell bearing.
2. There is no support like XRAY support on the track. I got all the information needed all week.
3. Very easy to drive , with 0 experience on this scale I finished ahead of many experienced drivers (believe me I am not that talented
) it was very easy to drive the car.
4. Experienced and beginners will find the car fun and easy to drive and for sure wining races ,like the team has proven .
I love the car and love the category.
