Hotbodies have their drivers. I dont think they can pay him what he wants, remember AE is NOT the same AE and it was back then. There is a difference between being paid and being sponsored.

Odonnell..... They need and I think have money to pay for a good driver. They can benefit from a driver like Lutz....

I guess we'll all find out less than 10 hrs from now where the Lutzinator is going with.

I like this senario. What if Swift/Amain sign him up?? That would be a great coup for JQ and THE CAR...

Not JQ, his distributors.

-and the trf cars are nice, I've seen one. But if you read the thread, they do have more issues then others... the steering rack slop, shocks wear out quickly, spur/diff gears not lasting, its heavy, you have to buy light-weight option parts, and its not cheap for having to be upgraded.

I am not bashing the car, just stating exactly what the owner told me and what I've read in the forum here on rctech. I hear it handles great and the quality looked great but I think for TRF's first car they did good, if they refined it, added all of these light-weight parts, and maybe updated the steering and spring issue they'd have a definate winner, but I know no car is perfect but they only have small issues.

I would like to see the TRF line excell, the more competition the better
