Engine will most likely be O.S. as he runs in 1/8th buggy, so maybe we might see a 'SPEED' version of the XZ-R.
I believe Shimo runs OS now too doesn't he? And of course Josh Cyrul as well.

Shimo has been running OS for many years I think. I didn't know Josh was running OS, I thought he was still running Novarossi.

Atsushi Hara might not be very experienced with 1/8 onroad racing, but judging by his performance in any category he participates, he is immediately considered as a candidate for a podium position, if not higher...

Default Free Parts

At the 2009 Worlds, Mugen offered free replacement parts when you bring the broken part to them. Are they offering the same gesture?

I am sure many IC manufacturers would have offered him a deal over the years. Maybe he does't like the noise or smell of nitro cars
