He was seen testing the 710 and the 950 1/8 scale (f-1),with great results. Will be posting pictures soon ,as soon as my publisher lets me. The test site at this time it's unknown but the details will be released soon.

Not very likely since Hot Bodies is his baby and it's tied in with HPI....just someone trying to stir the pot!

Considering Hara has been very instrumental in the design and has been successful racing the Pro4 it doesn't seem likely that he would leave HPI. It is possible that he may drive 1:10 and 1:8 nitros made by a different company though because he did have a separate offroad Schumacher deal in the past. Oh well, who knows. Whoever he races for will be fortunate to have him.

Even if he is successful at HPI it doesnt mean he wont switch companies. Im not saying he will but its all about the money if he does.

He'll still race for HPI/hot bodies. Maybe serpent is thinking of picking him up for 1/8th scale on-road ? dunno, in this industry, anything is bound to happen.
