Yeah but that was because the HB car wasn't going to be ready for it. Now that he's free, maybe Mugen or KM will slap something together for him.

Just imagine if he went to Traxxas... Lord knows they have the budget to pay him. With their money and him helping design they would be an absolute force in the racing world if they ever got serious about it.

My real guess would be Xray though.

I say xray should just go for it, get hara. Just think about it everyone is super excited about the 2014, announce hara as a new team member the day the 2014 goes on preorder and sales would probably double

As long as the price doesn't double. It hurts each more and more every time you have to buy one.

It's all marketing. Yes, Hara is expensive, but he can drive in multi platforms, so marketing budget become bigger.

Xray makes the most sense!!! They can simply cut one mid-ranked driver in each platform, and combine the budget to hire one Hara. Still not enough? How about Hara edition T4, Hara XB4, Hara X12.....etc?

So, I like to see a Xray Hara!!!

Hi

I dont see him at Xray , he will design the cars that he drives , but that will never happen at team Hudy as long as Juray and Martin owns the company. I think he will partner up with a 1/10 EP company for the coming WC and from that point on he will be designing new cars for that company.

If he have a good car to drive why would he want to design his own??

We should crowd source our funds and sign Hara as a full time setup guru, 24/7 setup help

I don't want to see him go X-ray, but I wouldn't bet against it!

Whilst Xray is a good guess, he left HB with his Mechanic also, so maybe another JQ story on the cards?

Cut one mid level driver? I'd cut all of them! From a consumer standpoint, no one knows who these mid level drivers are (save locally). There is zero international or even country benefit from having these guys that Hara wouldn't be able to do in one swoop.

The weird thing is, why would HPI let him out of his contract? That makes zero sense (for us outside looking in). Of course, he can choose to "suck" for the remaining contract years, but that would probably hurt him more. So this makes me think he made an HR mistake... Maybe he got caught sleeping with the boss' daughter? . Using the expense account on some trophy girls? Of course, this is said jokingly. But i wouldn't be surprised if such was the case.
