It's the end of the year and alot of contracts are up, it's the same every year with drivers jumping all over the place. The R/C "silly season" has begun!

This is what I heard a month ago also...

Funny this was mentioned. It was posted that Jilles signed with Tamiya on a RC news website. Then within maybe hours... it was taken down. Hmmmmm

Any ideas what motors he's going to be running for now?? He recently signed for SMC cells...... he was with Trinity then left them to run Checkpoint at Vegas, was back with Trinity at Cleveland....... maybe he'll be going to LRP Brushless or something??

Best of luck to him, seems to be a real top driver who's just had a big european/worlds win elude him for some years!
