I heard after the cleveland indoor champs that three pro drivers switched teams(chassis). You'll be very surprised where two of them went, but I think it was a strategic move for them to do things that they want to do in the RC industry. And I think the third driver's was more of a career/strategic move as well.

Billy Easton's move to Losi was a good one since he can wheel on all surfaces and Losi can offer both on and off road cars for him to run.

Yea but if Losi was still running the XXXS I dought he would have left. But since the new release of the JRXS he now can drive what he is use to. CF chassis's. Good luck Billy on your new venture.
Team YOK time to step it up a notch.

You'd think after TQing TC Mod at one of the most competitive races in the world that you'd stick with that car. I really doubt Paulie would leave.

Same thing goes for Josh's win, but...

I guess it comes down to who pays the bills.

This ranks right up there with the day I found Sonic Adventure 2 on the Gamecube. Why Billy...why? (In case youre wondering, I am a hardcore Associated loyalist)

Josh isn't just making a chassis change....Can you say he feels the need...for some True Speed?
