Brian, I wish you the best with your health, it has been different not seeing you in the results. I also wish you the best racing with X-Factory and Kropy.

Hey McSquish... is that the real "Bill the Cat"?
That is great.

Good luck Brian. If you race with Greg, are you guys going to make it to Dallas any time? Let people know. There are more than a few fast guys around here to keep you sharp.

Godspeed!

Good luck Dirtinator.
Just to let you know as you have no idea as usual. We offered Brian a smaller contract for the next year in appreciation for all of Brian's efforts in the past. Team Losi is also the only one who continued to give Brian his full salary for the 14 months he was not racing. As for the insurance Brian is a independent contractor and that was covered by Trinity. I believe Trinity is still taking care of his health insurance to the is day.

Team Losi wishes Brian all the best in all of his future endeavors.

Well i dont know about you todd or anyone else that lives in the same world as the rest of us but a pay cut for someone like that is just not right no matter what has happened. His name alone sells stuff even if he were in the l main of every race. i mean couldnt you guys cut a few lesser names come on now this is a lame ass excuse we offered him less money.... thats some crap... here brian we know you cant live on this but sign here lmao especially when he wasnt feeling good /sigh nice company you guys got over there. the money you guys think you would have saved by giving him lesser money i assure you will be lost by people that follow kinwald. To tell Greg he doesnt know what hes talking about is some shit he might not have all the facts 100 percent right but one thing is for sure Losi is not worthy of my dollar or any of my friends dollar anymore.

Good day and good luck to team losi

WTF? Name one company that pays employees their full salary when they miss 14 months of work. I've never been a fan of Losi vehicles (they just dont fit they way I like my cars to handle) but I have a ton of respect after hearing that they kept Brian on they payroll for as long as they did. Way to go Losi.

So what your saying is Brian is just another employee of some company right?

yeah figures you have no idea or clue.

you might want to do a little research on the guy maybe your new to the hobby or something i dont know.

I`m a independent contractor and nobody has ever offered to pay my health INS ....


Seem`s Losi has gone way over board in helping Brian out, especially if they are still covering his Ins premium`s....

Show me another R/c company that would do the same !
