Well, unless you actually have firsthand information and not hearsay, your guess would have been as good as anyone else's... So LOL back to you!

So where did he sign? As of just 9 days ago he still hadn't signed anywhere.

It would be funny if he decided to resign with HPI again.. It's highly unlikely, but what if HPI came out with a brand new sedan. Maybe, just maybe, he would reconsider.

I strongly believe Hara will be pushing the DO6 Wildfire for the Worlds this year. I'm confident VBC and Hara has a deal worked out behind the scenes (hush, hush) type stuff that he will drive the DO6 just for the upcoming worlds. I really don't see him signing anything prior to the Worlds

As much as I'd like to see him drive the D06 for the worlds, he also runs the ARC with success. You know something we don't?

Where do you even buy the [email protected]? Amain or Tower does not carry them.

Here's my take.... Hara has been there done it. Hara will been running a chassis that has a proven platform (and not the HB). He has also tested several cars and there is only one chassis he went for a second look, the DO6.
Also the VBC Wildfire is a two time ROAR champion and from my investigations the DO6 is a much better chassis than the original Wildfire. This car I believe is the fastest chassis out there hands down, just boils down to a world class driver to pilot the car on the podium, Hara seems to be the one and have interest in this car.

I seem to recall, if you hunt around online, that he has actually driven several different manufactures more than once.

If Hara is sponsored by Amain Hobbies, then wouldn't it stand to reason that he would run something that they sell? Aren't they the exclusive US distributor for Yokomo? Thus, he would run a proven platform and make one of his sponsors happy.

That would be cool to see Hara back with Yokomo. Hara will do well wherever he decides to go.
