Default Adam Drake signs with novarossi

hey all: Just saw on neobuggy that the "drake" is now using novarrosi engines and all i can say is wow. Does this big name signing mean there's any problems at grp or is it just the fact that adam realy liked the novarossi engine and may be getting big $$$ to use them? Thanks for the info

Well my guess is that the GRP tuned line will be held up for awhile; conveniatly mario rossi left grp not too long ago, along with the fact that The GRP tuned engines are starting to go out of stock/back ordered... As well as in the article on Neobuggy a few weeks back saying the relationship between GRP and losi is questionable... Looks to me like they might be parting

On top of that, I've read a dozen conflicting stories about whether or not GRP will remain in business at all.
