It is so funny how one minute R/C racers are hanging from the proverbial nuts of the big name drivers, but as soon as one leaves a team they are ready to throw him under the bus.

I wish the best for Mike and hope that he lands on a great team that can appreciate his skills.

even better these pro guys change cars motor speedo whatever it is. then they come on here and start a thread that says this is the best car or whatever. and you have to have it it will make you fast. good for dropping a .10th of your lap times.

the best part is all the squirrels that believe it and go out and spend hundreds up on hundreds on this stuff and lmao still run the same.

I don't know the facts of this particular situation, but many times the sponsors drop their drivers or simply decide to stop paying them.

If you were a manufacturer, would you sponsor a guy that told everyone that some other car was better?
