Nothing will change. AE already bought the design.

Or maybe AE is too far behind?.. (or in any case maybe Alton wasn't the bad guy in whatever happened...)

In any event, what a train-wreck...

Maybe his design was just too complicated it created the waiting game and AE got tired of waiting? IDK, would be interesting to hear what happened...

If you read the article on Neobuggy, they suggest that the split would have been over the lackluster performance of the new RC8 prototype. Remember when I said that Maifield looked pissed in an interview at the DNC in February? Well now you can start to connect the dots.

Maybe, Maybe, Maybe - - Lots of pressure, especially since we are in a Worlds year. All I can guess is that he had 2 years to get this car built.

If the car was worth a damn he'd still have a job at AE.

Nobodies going to buy into the concept if the chief designer is not onboard It don't matter if they already own the design, plus I dought the next guy who takes his job will want to pick up where he left off! All designers want to show what they can do! (My own design) Not give someone else credit
