Hard on him, No. Realistic, Yes. Hey in my first year of Auto-X I won the 
region championship's in 3 regions, Was Undefeated in two, Won 
Divisionals and took a 5th in class out of 27 at Nationals, And BTW the 
first 12 cars in my class at nationals were all within 1/2 second. 
Remember this, A trailer baby will ALWAYS beat a daily driver.

He did'nt win at divisionals.......  The MX-6 Will beat the 4000Q it's 
that simple.  1/2 second may not sound like a long time but it's 
lightyears in a Auto-X.  I've seen national titles won buy .002sec 
cumulitive over 2 days.  Now being in the same 1/10 that's something to 
get excited over.  Remember in most auto-x's 1/2 sec is 1% of total time, 
in racing that a lot.
