As of Friday, Regan Leblanc has not left Kyosho, maybe your thinking of Greg Degani?

Kortz is running for HoBao for 2006-7 as is Degani. No one knows where Tebo is going or if he is even leaving Kyosho as nothing official has been announced yet. My guess it you will see it on Neobuggy first.

Yes Regan and Kortz have left for personal reasons. Tebo left because of prior sponsor conflict.

If ae/thunder tiger is the case, then Ryan C will end up with the same conflict. Well we will know what he is driving when he attends the worlds this year.

We should keep in mind that Kyosho is a completely different company in the US this year. They used to be distributed by Great Planes for the longest time and have now set up their own distribution. They are now Kyosho USA which is a totally different organization.

While it seems like they are losing pros left and right (ok, they are..) they have signed on 3 regional drivers in the Chicago area and are likely doing that across the US. Maybe the new organization is changing their focus.

Hey, Ellis, maybe that's why he sent you a lazer for free. Cause he didn't give a f any more.

If Paris Hilton married Scott Bao, she would be HoBao.

I really don't know what Kyosho is thinking ? WHY IN THE WORLD would you let someone as good as Tebo slip through the cracks ? I can see Kortz and the other guy , but not Tebo? and Cavilarie might have the same sort of issues as well ? WTF ? Mugen lost some of there best players ,now Kyosho too ? these guys might as well thow in the towel and bow to HoBao ,because I think they will be the next champ ! Mugen will have a better chance as long as the really fast Europeans don't start playing musical chairs too. I don't think X-Ray is ready yet and Jammin' needs to fix there durrability issue and they just might be the top dog this year instead of Hobao.
Wild , Tebo was unstopable this last year too ?
i think California needs to clean up its air better ,it seems to cause brain damage .

i like seeing changes like this....it gives the class and the indestry for that matter a less narrow minded view of what is the best. it makes companies more even in terms of teams, and more teams have a bigger spread of talent, rather then who has the most money to spend on their team...
