:roll:  Jeez, why did they even bother with all that if these self obsessed athletes are going to turn up with respirators. Heck, why not just give them some full breathing apparatus and turn the factories on again. At least that would make the Olympics fun to watch.  :lol:

Two of the us athletes are from our yacht club  :D
Savage, Mini-T, Wheely king, Slash. Too many hop ups to list.

If it isn't broken why not break it?

i don't see what the big deal is, they are Olympic athelets that arrived to do battle but cant breath.

i might have missed something like the correlation to nitro shortage, can someone enlighten me?

I dunno, I guess showing up with masks on basically to prove a point might anger the host country (China) which also happens to be one of a few (or only 2?) countries left still capable of producing nitro to feed our RC habit and the drag racing crowd might not be something we want to do, if we expect them to restart production of that nitro to feed our habits.

SERIOUSLY thinking about a brushless conversion.

o i didn't really know much about the nitro thing. but imo the mask thing isn't going to affect it and hopefully this fuel problem will not be a problem as there is such a high demand especially in drag racing and white people love drag racing especially when there are a couple cars but when theres alot you have a couple meals and your set.

Not quite sure that bolded part was necessary!

And it very well may effect it........China seems VERY sensitive to the air quality/pollution issue, along with their country image during the Olympics.......like they are out to prove something to the world.
