It's very interesting to hear, currently over at hobao he's his own boss, the team manager n the big cheese, and he got 6th at the worlds! to hear that he would give that up for agama would honestly b a big mistake. I really don't believe it but in the current economic times hobao may not be making enough to keep him afloat with the same program he has been running for so long. to him he wouldn't do it unless he had no choice. So I guess we will see what happens in the future.

Jason Branham is already taking podiums at big races with the A8. Jeremy will give them the big 1-2 punch that the other big name Chassis have. 2012! It's on!

Why do you feel that Jeremy is making a mistake by changing mfg's?

Do you really think he has no other choice?

Jeremy likely has many options and one would think his decision was based on more $$ and also the performance of the car. A driver of his caliber doesnt just make moves like this one without testing the car thouroughly to ensure that he likes the performance and feel of the car. Just my opinion but I'm putting on the fire resistant suit just in case.

I would have agreed with you if not for the struggles of Reno Savoya and Billy Fischer with the Durango Nitro Buggy. They obviously did not test the car before they signed and Reno bailed and Billy is not the same
