I think Reno's biggest issue this year was leaving hist father as mechanic. Too many changes for a single season...

Reno would probably do great at Caster, because it's like his old Mugen

That would be funny, since in the discussion where he would go pre-durango several of us assumed sworks back then. Savoya would be better served getting his career advice from RCtech threads.

Savoya Spent a year here In Australia and helped alot of our fast guys become even faster.
Kyle McBride the Aussy champ was also a Mugen driver who went over to TD and he's still kickin A$$ and winning more than ever.

Maybe the car isnt suited to Reno I dont know Maybe its personal issues I dont know.

But If the Aussy champ who is 15 by the way can step out of mugen and into durango and still kick serious but It makes you wonder..

McBride is the only true pro driver out there.. he can win with Toys R Us buggy..
he is doing ok but, i don't think that he will achive the same results, if they were to run the world champ race again next weekend at the same track.. I think McBride will still perform better with the Mugen.

Caster is not anything like it used to be either.

But considering a lot of other brands are not able to stay together for a whole race, ours can.

To a smaller company? Then yes that would be backwards.

To a lesser car? Maybe. We don't need a Tresrey and our cars stay together now. To be honest, I think Team Durango set companies like Agama, Caster, Sworkz, JQ back about 5 years with what they did to the market.

We will see what happens. As the market continues to implode and the recession hits, some of these guys might beg to be on someone's payroll and I know if they can win with a Mugen, they can win with a Caster.

Personally I don't think Savoya would be the right fit. I need someone more "US based" that is well known.

I think that Reno is going for Tamiya, It makes sence since he is already practicing his new car,Tamiya is going to present BIG news soon, They need a dominant driver in their Off-Road Nitro division, and just ended his contract with TD. Think about it, and yes i now Lee Martin is great but don't has Renos skill in Nitro just my opinion...

Always wondered about the 801X platform. Everytime I have seen one and even drove one of the truggy's it was absolutely awesome.
