Tamiya 501X

HPI RS4 MT 1999

I be really interested in learning why too.

Probably the 501x.
I like this truck better than the B44 though.
The B44 would be a 3rd favorite.

Maybe I cant do sums but:
300 seconds (5min) / 33 laps = 9.09sec average laptime

Or if its the 10min final then he's lapping 4 seconds off his PB
600 seconds /33 laps = 18.18sec

So 42 laps would be possible and thats assuming that you cant do laps quicker than 14sec.

I dont really think its possible to compare cars untill you're at least extracting most of the potential from them, I cant see how a T4 is faster than any properly sorted buggy in the hands of somebody competent

Unless...
the track is like the moon, then handling a buggy would be impossible.

However, I do think that this B44TF501x dude is actually the problem here, but without looking at the track, I can't really tell.

Show us some pics of the track and we might be able to see?

From what i hear , if Bmag was in the uk he would be an F12 standard of driver. Its not that the lad cant drive, he is ok, but he knows sweet FA but thinks he is the US version of Elvo.


Bmag do you have a girlfriend?

If I was in the UK I would get beat very bad every week.
I assume I am a intermediate driver with pro level cars.
I'm in no shape or form a sponsored driver that gets paid to win!
