Lutz leaves Kyosho For Tamiya!
 
report from Neo-Buggy..
In a shock move, team manager and top Kyosho driver Ryan Lutz will leave his post at Kyosho America and move to 1/8 offroad newcomers Tamiya. Could this move signal Tamiya's intent to establish themselves in the hotly contested buggy market ? Lutz has been instrumental in setting up Kyosho America's racing presence, and with a big name driver expected to be announced quite soon, is Lutz making way?
More news soon.

wow that sucks Ryan is a local guy from where I race in ohio, He is a great driver sorry to see him go.:cry:

WOW!

That's a shocker, at least to me. I've never met Ryan Lutz but from reading his posts on here, he seems to be a decent straight-up kind of guy. Good luck to him a Tamiya. The new truggy looks nice, it will be very interesting to see what kind of results they get with a top of the line driver like Lutz wheeling it.

Secondly, does this open up a slot a Kyosho for Tebo to slip into? I'd like to see him driving the mp-9!

Maybe Tebo goes to Tamiya with Lutz or Cody King makes the move to Tamiya with Ryan and Tebo goes to the K team.
