Default Mike Truhe to orion power???

hey all: just saw on neobuggy that mike truhe has signed with team orion. Is this move only for nitro power and will he still use losi excellorin for electric power? Finally is this just another clue that the losi grp partnership may be nearing an end or does losi not base this on how many and which team drivers are using grp engines? Thanks for the info

That is a surprise to me. I mean I knew he would switch, but I was expecting him to follow Drake back to Nova. Well that is good for him. I know he has had some trouble with the GRP engines lately, so this may make him even more dangerous on the track.

Smart man aswell. Yeah I too believe GRP is history. Not a big deal for me though because I never liked thier engines.

Well i burnt a GRP up this weekend at JBRL, but that was because a fuel line got pinched.

I am done with GRP though, not enough power on tracks like Thunder Alley. Going to either Mugen motor, reedy or maybe the orion
