Default Tebo Release from Hobbico

From RedRC

"Hobbico have come with the bombshell that as of September 30, 2008, Jared Tebo is being released from the O’Donnell, Team CheckPoint, Futaba and O.S. Engine brands racing teams. Throughout his 11-year career with the O’Donnell team, Jared has won several National Championships as well as an IFMAR World Championship. Hobbico wanted to thank Jared for his hard work and dedication and wish him much success in his future endeavors. Where to next for young superstar, I’m sure time will tell, but with close ties to Associated through his electric racing they could be a strong option? Stay tuned."

No doubt ASSOCIATED, REEDY, & maybe Airtronics will step-up and take good care of him... He will land a sweet deal sometime soon for sure!

I am would like to see Tebo go back to Kyosho. That would mix thing up alittle. AE already has enough talent on their team IMO.

I hope he lands at Kyosho for everything, including electric. He is the star that the Kyosho electric team needs. Their cars are great, they just need a huge star to take them to the top.

He is in a great position to go anywhere. Could be Losi, AE, Kyosho or even Nikko and he would be fast. ... Maybe not Nikko but you get my point. This guy could drive a piece of wood with some tires and engine and would win races. I wish him all the best and look forward to the impact he is going to make with his next team.

to me it would just make sence for him to start runnin the rc8 being he already has a relationship with ae. oh and a world title. if i were ae i would snag him up the rc8 is a killer car and tebo wheeling it? oh ya!! but after a poor showing at the worlds for kyosho he may end up there to.

I don't think it will take long for him to get a new deal with someone. He has proven many of times that he is one of the top racers.

It won't be long til where reading about who he is racing for so hold tight and enjoy all the speculations on where he will go from here.

i think logically it would be AE. they now have nitro 8th scales. and he already has proven his skills with the b44/b4/t4

it would be nice to see a BIG name driver run the k-cars, to mix things up

RB I think you spelled that wrong. It should be Key-NO-SHOW.
