Toys? You're in the wrong forum.

Don't take offense to the toys reference. I race them and sell them myself. I am not saying Tebo is a bust or the car does not work but the sales of the ODonnell buggy has not made much of an impact in the market place.

Hopefully so... Maybe Xray will finally figure out that onroad is only about 20% of this hobby...

BTW If anyone ever wonders how much these drivers could make, Just think of how much money you and everyone on the Rc-tech fourms has spent on veichles... Then you'll understand.

I say he goes to AE

he already has an electric deal with them and it wouldn't be much for him to just on there nitro buggy and truggy

but I'd like to see him go to Kyosho, they need a top notch driver

get that MP9 in the A.

I have to say this isnt going to happen. Directly from a very high up team manager, they were unwilling to pay what he is asking. That is rumored to be in the 200k range.

I believe Kyosho Would make perfect sense, He was using a KO Radio (Same as Cody King and Ryan Lutz) and Orion Power witch for electric is like everybody at Kyosho, and a few of the nitro guys run there motors. Kyosho is pretty close to the ZO1B, so it wont be hard to change driving styles. And he drove for Kyosho before OD! I think it be logical. Kyoshos got the bank, im sure.

I think she is Steve Hale's daughter.

Lets hope Tebo goes to Kyosho.

Pretty sure that Kortz, Degani, and Pavidis all ran for Team Kyosho International. Cavalieri and Tebo may also did. I'm not sure about Lutz and Cody King but they probably have and did run for Kyosho Int'l

Pavidas is the only American under the Kyosho Japan driver at the moment.

Cody and Ryan are all under the Kyosho USA banner.

The MP9 is ahead of the ZO1B by far... The ZO1B most resembled the 777-WC...
