I know Mugen is small in comparison to most RC Companies, but how cool would it be for him to drive for mugen!

Mugen has some awesome drivers as well, Scott Hughes, Rhonda Skelton, but Tebo in addition to...whoa! way cool
AND Bobby Tillman!

Am I off base here?

how much do these guys make?

Ryan Cavaleri just bought a new $60,000 Lexus IF, so I'm sure some of these guys are bringing in six figures.


And TEBO to Kyosho would be the sweet.

That's good money for playing with toy cars
Like I stated in my previous post. The top driver are clearing 6 figures per year. That is damn good money.

I think Tebo Xray/OS would be a killer combo! Its not likely to happen, but imagine Tebo running the lightest buggy on the market, with its legendary durability and new found performance in the 808. OMG

If Josh Wheeler qualified 3rd at the worlds with that buggy, imagine what Tebo could do.

Please go to Xray.... they need a super driver!!!!!

I know you are joking but just to fill some people in, Traxxas used to have a competitive team (mainly electric) but disbanded it and quit making high end competition kits because they refused to pay drivers. Doesn't sound like someplace Tebo would want to go.

ive raced at Real Rc in MO where tebo lives. most of the drivers there have jammin rides and there are a few k cars as well, but that is my guess jammin or k car. he'll probrally still run futuaba and os but only time will tell. i also know he drives a very nice car and i wouldn't doubt its over 60k

i am pretty positive that he will not be running futaba or os anymore.. i believe that people associated with hobbico were part of the problem.. just my opinion
