LOL....Chicky prob did that but it was for Serpent! He doenst own On-point any longer and is running all serpent products

I thought the way he signed his press release was telling. He managed to sneak "pro driver" in there twice. Sending a message to HPI?

Yeah, Hobao, A-Main I'm sure will carry that car, as long as he is with A-main he can run any car, it just have a huge A-main decal on the side instead of the Man. decal.

Doesn't make sense. Amain doesn't make cars so how would Hara improve their sales? Why would they pay him to run a Durango, Xray or Mugen or whatever when Durango, Xray, Mugen can pay him and either way, they still sell kits?

The only downfall I can see with the A main theory is the lack for full factory support. A factory race team is not going to send him the new stuff to run if he is not under contract with them I do not believe. Especially if he decided to run for A main alone and had a yokomo, an xray, etc in his arsenal. It would pretty much eliminate his factory support on new stuff I would think. I know it is Hara after all so that may not hold true for him!

But I know if I was the owner of a company im not sending anyone anything I have that I think is "The" next car for my company or ground breaking if they are not under contract to run my car exclusively. Thats just my opinion though.

it will have to be a large company. pretty sure Hara is the highest paid driver in RC....by a large margin.

alton is at AE..Not sure whats up with jesse robbers? I use to see him at the socal tracks testing about a year ago?he has not been racing.. Maybe just in office designing? also where is shin? thought he moved to socal to work at hpi?

No team will drop drivers that have been with them for a while just to grab someone like Hara. More then likely some company who want a larger push in a class will grab him for that class or for many classes.
I could honestly see him signing with a few smaller companies. He has always like takinga underdog car to the winners circle. When the Pro 3 came out it wasnt the greatest car on the planet but with his help it became a compeative car.
