total disregard of emotion cannot be achieved, and mindfulness meditation is about self-distancing from the strong emotion and not removing emotion so his zero theory is totally wrong

Talking about emotionless driving but when the fog hit the ground it became a matter of who really wants to win.

in a way maybe yea coz he ask his friend to signal him that he can overtake


but the Z33 also has scouts around the course to report if there are oncoming traffic

but the fog made it hard to see for both the drivers and spectators.

I also found it pretty cheap but there really isn't a rule against it : /

I hate how these races are ending in the first runs. Just discredits the skills of the other drivers and also makes this stage feel a bit rushed.

Well, imo this counts as "friendly interference", which totally is cheating in my book.
I agree about the rushed feeling.

Mmm, this bento looked good.

In other news, this was one of my favorite episodes of the season so far. Exciting and I was really interested to see what happens next!

Still can't get over how ugly Keisuke looks in this season. Everyone else improved.

Keisukes strategy is totally crazy...

Driving in a foggy terrain is really dangerous

At least they are trying to be a bit more original with the opponents' approach, and the conditions of the race, with the fog and stuff, but it's still being dragged down for longer than necessary to build up a suspense that doesn't pay off with lots, and lots of side commentaries.

Wow. This episode was really good! Interesting ideals this opponent has, different than most opponents do. Keisuke's strategy is genius, it's still really dangerous though.

That fox was intense. Enjoyed this episode.

I agree with those who are saying this season has a bit too much talking/explaining going on. But I don't agree that Keisuke cheated. Because he didn't. There were spotters for Zero on the course, they just happened to be useless in those conditions.

I liked that Zero Theory concept.

Hah, Keisuke has now his own version of "blind attack". ;p Another useful skill for this great racer.

In my opinion, while it was not directly forbidden, Kenta giving informations to Keisuke can be considered as cheating.

New ending already? Anyway, I liked it.
