My guess is that Adrian said Kyosho because they're one the few manufacturers with pro-level EP touring cars and pro-level 1/8th buggies. HPI/HB are one of the others, as are Losi (soon, with the 8ight & JRX-S) and of course Xray.

Perhaps the O'Donnell 1/8th buggy will be something he'll have a hand in developing before the Worlds later in the year?

It was sarcastic ment

But he should move from HPI to another car team Tamiya is the team who has the bigest team and things going their way

But this was sarcastic ment, and why not get Harvey to write a BIG check and make him a Schumacher driver

Wow - Big News indeed!

I have to say though, that I Don't blame him at all. I used to use DC Motorsports Ti3 and V2 based motors but recently got a hold of a DC Motorsports Checkpoint and the thing is ballistic! I am tipping he'll be a bit faster now with Checkpoint power, so it'll be interesting to see what Oscar pulls out of the bag with Rheinards motors.

I think it's more about money than the motor, don't forget racing for us is a hobby, for Hara is where he makes his money, if someone's going to double your salary, you probably will jump as well.

I'll agree to a point, but Hara is not going to run a slower motor just because someone pays him more. If he slips out of the limelight, so does Hara Racing Products. Great pick-up for Checkpoint though.

I think Atsushi Hara will have a pit similar to this for the Reedy Race...
