Default Greg Degani leaving hobao

hey all:Saw this on neobuggy and found it interesting that not only is he leaving hobao,but he's doing it without another vehicle sponsor already lined up.So let the speculation begin as to which company he might sign with.P.S. he recently signed with rb engines so that may have some affect on which buggy and or truggy he chooses.Personaly it wouldn't suprise me if he joined the upstart Serpent team that already has jorn numann and billy easton.Just my thoughts and thanks for the input

It seems an interesting move as Hobao worldwide seem to be on a bit of a roll at the moment. Mr Batlle won the Euro's and there always seems to be a few Hobaos running around in the top 10 at most events.
My thoughts are Kyosho, who seem to be building up a strong team, and he has worked with them before. Though the choice of engine is interesting and may not gel too well with the big K.
Second thought may be X-ray, as they have lost a few top drivers recently, the engine choice fits then too.

A new thread to speculate who a driver might sign with

It would make more sense to wait and see where he ends up, then post your support and opinions.
BTW...Neobuggy, never heard of it. What is that, a new auto manufacturer??:rolle yes:

Shouldn't this thread be called, "Where does Greg Degani go next?" That's how it works in the Electric Forums...lol.

Now that's a good question, since he's not signed with another company!

Could it be because they spelled his name wrong in the newest Hobao ad?
