Hope there weren't any doubters of HARA. It doesn't matter the class, he's a man amongst children. He's the reason my first rc was an HPI. You don't win WC in different classes and be on the podium for the last three 1/8th buggy worlds on accident.

As soon as I saw that rb6 in his livery I got chills. Looks like he's on to something with that MM.

Can't wait to see that setup.

I think some of you are hating on the MM without reasoning. Those of you who are bashing it, have you all driven a properly setup mid? They have a lot more forward bite than you might think. To be fair the track is still loose but bite is coming up. I think he will be a force to watch in the mains.

It'd also be crazy to think he'd choose a mid motor for the reedy race if a rear was a lot better. He wants to win races, he's gotten close too much lately to not do everything possible not to win.

Hara said in an interview he practiced 4 days at wcrc and ocrc . Im sure he tried RM as well and must have preferred the MM.

These ARE the mains, every race is a main. It's the Reedy Race, that is how the race is run. 12 Mains, 6 with 2wd and 6 with 4wd. 1 drop for each class. You should read about the format, it'a a very unique race.

Looking forward to switching to the RB6 next month. Just waiting for them to come off back order. Buggy seems to be so much smoother then everything else out there.

It's truly in a league of it's own. I truly believe it's what helped me get into the A-MAIN after taking a year off so quickly.
