Well... the good news about this is he will still be racing... particularly Electric... which will be good for the industry as a whole.... especially if he can help bring Kyosho back up to what they once wereback in the late 80's... back in their glory days they actually won an Electric IFMAR Worlds in 2WD Off-Road! The more competition the better!
Here again are Mark's own words:
"I will still be working at Proline on a daily basis. Kyosho will send me there ideas and we can refine them togehter and put some racer input back into their products. I will still be racing electric.
At least he still will be racing and doing some R & D for Electric Kyosho kits!
