Arguably two of the greatest drivers in all of R/C racing history has been Masami Hirosaka and the late Brian Kinwald, both of which I continue to idolize very much on and off the race track. These two drivers are legendary icons in the industry for their talent, skill, and speed on the racetrack displayed in their era. Once again while caught in the YouTube vortex, I stumbled across this epic battle between the two legends in mid 1990's. Watch the strategy, consistency, and "game of chess" style race as Masami tries to defend his position against a hard charging attack from Kinwald.
