My understanding is that the helo was used to their advantage ( Herbsts ). I was told be 2 different drivers that they cleared the truggy to pass in very heavy dust at least twice. The 1st time they figured that is was just a luck thing but when it happened again the knew what was going on. It's great that they have the money to fund their opperation and support their effort the way that they do and they also do put a lot of money into the sport. They have even flown out injured racers. But when does it become cheating ? Last time I looked in the rule book, flying in parts or relaying course info to the vehicle was not allowed.
