What does Hara do next? He will play with R/C cars like the rest of us.

What will he do for a living? That's what is up in the air. I'll bet R/C racing is a big part of it.

LOL

Luck is not just "preparation meeting opportunity"... Luck is the opportunity itself.

Obviously one needs to be prepared to take full advantage of a situation that could yield positive results, should it arise. But whether or not that situation or set of circumstances arises... that is what luck is all about.

Hes going to work for xray and their new lead designer. They can't pay him as much as the brands that sell the basher/toys, so they are making a deal to give him royalties from the cars he designs.

What you didn't see is that he has built a ARC R10'13 as well as the new VBC.
