A sad day for me...Jr got me my job at Losi almost 13 years ago and he helped me move along in the company. I'm really going to miss his amazing way of solving problems and his crazy ideas. I'm feel lucky to have been privy (spelling?) to some of his crazy ideas that never made it to market for one reason or another. I'll also miss him leaving his coffee cup on my desk too
It's sad to see him go, but I wish him only the best. Good Luck Gil

Good Gawd!!!! I can't believe that the car "may" be coming this week and now Jr. is going to Kyosho. My R/C heart is broken. This is worse than Mark Martin driving a Chevy! WHAT KIND A BIZZARO WORLD ARE WE LIVING IN?????????

Good luck to you Gil Jr. and many more successes in your career.

I can't help but wonder if the handling of our Type-R and its delays were the straw that broke Jr.'s back?

Please excuse me while I lower my Team Losi banner to half mast.

How about a completely new car based on brushless motors and lipo batteries? Should be something with the weight (i.e. battery) down the center (ala JRX-S); but, not quite so centered for tracks with less than high grip? A "Non Pro" model for the masses that don't usually get to race on high grip surfaces.

I see a lot of jrXs lovers in here (a former one myself with the fan site), I think Gil will help out Kyosho in a big way. Just think of the great exciting new toys that can come from this!!!

Good luck, JR, on your new adventure. I know you will improve the electric side of the on and off road side of Kyosho.
