That "Prototype" TC is a Speed Master Japan (SMJ) CX11 with probably some minor tweaks, Jill Groskamp is already driving one. Just comparing his car to my SMJ CX11, there is nothing visibly different between the 2

I do hope he joins Infinity and drives the SMJ. Help spread the word on this chassis which is still pretty unknown at the moment.

I'd hedge a bet with Infinity and VBC. If you've noticed at the ETS races (and ever since the 418), Marc's support team at the races is a fraction compared to Ronlad, Viktor, Bruno, etc. The TRF team has been fighting an uphill battle ever since the 418 was released.

Yea.. where has the money where the driver goes. It is a job for living. Infinity sure has the money and top drivers.

How does Infinity have so much backing and $$$? Just curious...

I just know that they had a whole entourage of drivers at IIC just out of no where. While Rheinard was pretty much a one-man show.

Will Infinty be like Durango ?? Flash the cash and hire ever driver, make an average product with no parts support, run out of cash and then sack all the drivers !

MR going to Infinity. The mystery left is what chassis - he can drive what ever he likes with Kenjis team.
I bet on Awesomatix for the first race.

Infinity is run by one guy (self made if I've been informed correctly), who has the money to do what he wants .

Almost the same things from all mentioned here.

Ok, got some inside news...

Tamiya has stated that they are cutting ties with Rheinard because they are investing all their capital into one star driver/engineer, who is even better than Rheinard. His name is bertsrand87. They will release the TRF420 which is under prototype phase of a heavily modded TC4 with "bert mods". In theory, bert should be faster than Coelho with full factory support. I cannot hold my excitement for the official announcement.

Infinity is buying everyone except Hara it would seem, so seems quite likely. Creation Models(Infinity) should have just bought Hot Bodies
