Does this also mean that Atsushi will be running O'Donnell products at the 1/8th Buggy worlds this year?

Wow...this is pretty big. Hara was an Orion franchise player. Someone must have written a big check to make this happen

CheckPoint is right there with Orion as the current kings of mod horsepower so this change will not slow Hara down at all.

KO to Futaba
Orion to CheckPoint

I wonder whats next...HPI/HB to Kyosho?

Whose batteries will he run? Battery is just as important as motor.
