I doubt it's Bill.

I'm sure sooner or later we'll this see this driver make a video with chicks who will mispronounce Agama.

How can you tell that's an Agama he is holding. No mention anywhere of what car it is? Also later he ran the FEMCA 2011 event finishing 4th with the SH Z-10XB.

Might be him. I mentioned this earlier in the Agama thread. But you can't tell from the link you posted.

Greg D ran the Z car at that race, there are pics from that race and he was with factory people over there showing his car off. He had two cars over there built ready to go, saw the pics. Its probably Wheeler, but why would he leave Xray when they just came out with a new car?

I'd be very suprised if it was Degani.
Not an insult to him, or his skills, but he's not a real 'world class' driver in the same caliber of Tebo, Mayfield, Tessman etc any more IMO.

I think maybe Wheeler, but I doubt Kortz. He's their marquee man for HoBao in the USA, so I think he's on a good wicket there.

Well you can categorically rule out Kortz. Didn't think OFNA would let him go.

This just posted http://www.buggy-sport.info/index.ph...ce-report.html

HoBao/OFNA have much deeper pockets than Agama as an RC brand, for Agama to nab someone as "World Class" as Kortz.

Sign Michael Jordan if you want to sell buggy's. Hell he probably couldn't drive it off pit lane, but the buggy's would sell like hotcakes.

Also sign Tiger Woods since his golf career is over. Call it the Hustler Edition

Tiger Woods down slide of his golf game sure hasn't hurt the value of the tiger Woods edition signed numbered Tag that I have. Its all public perception
