Ryan Lopez joins Team Losi Racing

Posted on Friday, January 14th, 2011 | in News | 1 Comment

Former Xray driver Ryan Lopez will be joining Team Losi Racing to race their 8ight buggy for 2011. Ryan had this to say:

“I am very excited about my new opportunity with TLR. Team losi is well known for having some of the best and fastest cars on the market and I am looking forward to representing there company for a long time to come. I want to say thanks to Ralph Burch and Mr Hudy for all the great support I have gotten the past five years with Xray. They have helped me get where I am today and I appreciate everything they have done for me. I also would like thank Byron’s fuels and Vp-pro-usa for the support the past few years. Both are great companies with even better people.”

He sounds excited to make the move and I’m sure TLR is just as excited to have signed him. From what I know, I don’t think he has won any major events, but seems like a consistent racer. We will just have to see as he joins Losi in 2011.

Jared Tebo teams up with Maxima Fuel

Posted on Tuesday, January 11th, 2011 | in News | 1 Comment

Jared Tebo has announced his final sponsor going into the 2011 season, a new company called Maxima Fuel. Here is what he has to say:

“I have just signed a 2 year contract with a brand new fuel company, Maxima Fuels. They are new into the RC fuel business, but not in RC, or the oil business. The new company has amazing contacts with lubricants that are not currently used in RC. I think that this is a great opportunity for me and Maxima. It is very exciting to be a part of this adventure and I will be working very closely with them to make the best fuel we can. With that said I have to give many thanks to Byrons Fuels. They welcomed me in 2009 and have been amazing to me. The people behind the company are great, and they have a great product. I have a great opportunity here and need to take it to try to reach some of my personal goals. They understood and we ended on very good terms. I wish all of Team Byron the best of luck in 2011 and beyond. Now with Maxima….I can not give 100% of the details but I can say that we are going to be giving it all we have to make an amazing product. I would like to thank everyone behind Maxima for giving me this chance. I look forward to this new chapter and new challenge. Thanks and look forward to hearing more about Maxima Fuels.”
