That's great!

Its really silly anyway...makes people sound like a bunch of groupies.

OH!! Adam Drake is using Nova now!!! I need to use Nova too, so I can be Like Adam!!!

(come to think of it, if I had a turbine..I probably couldn't beat him)

There is some faint, potential truth to the rumor.

He has done some testing

crap I've really been considering a plus 4. The price already went up once, now if Drake signs it'll surely go up, because everybody and their brother will be buying one

I ah woundered if changes would be comming down the pipe after Mario left GRP.

I have heard some guys having issues with the GRP motors, not sure what they are. Those motors always looked good out on the track. It would a big plus, feather in their cap so to speak, if Nova Rossi got Drake or Truhe on board. Then again any of the top racers could beat almost anyone with almost anything. Should be intresting.

Last time I spoke to "The Drake" he was still running GRP, he did not say anything about moving to Nova!!! I have not seen him for a few weeks though.

It wasmy understanding that his steering servo died, not the motor.

After the race I heard them talking about engine failure..I am not positive though, so I will not say this is truth or not..

I was at the race, and the way his buggy started slowing and bogging....well draw your own conclusions
