Top US racer and 2007 ROAR National Champion Barry Baker has announced that he is leaving Team RC America and Xray to race for Taiwanese manufacturer Team Magic. A move away from Xray seemed to be on the cards when he started using Team Orion products in his car recently, moving away from the RC America team deal with Trinity. Barry released the following statement:
I just wanted to announce that myself and Team Magic Model LTD. have joined forces! I will be representing Team Magic not only in the racing part of the company but also in the development of the products they have and will be coming out with. I look forward to help with the development of not only the race vehicles but also the RTR vehicles! I will be using all of Team Magic’s Products….E4RS for Rubber tire racing…E4FS for foam tire racing…G4RS for Gas car racing…..and the M1B for 1/8th off road….With the help of K-Factory and H.A.R.D products I will do my best to put them in the winners circle! Not only will I be working directly with the factory, I also will help promote the car not only worldwide but I also know how hard Wolf Hobbies works in the U.S and I will help them as much as I can! I will debut with the cars at the IIC…Anyone going feel free to come check them out and I will be more then happy to answer any question there……As for questions about the Cars right now I need to have a few weeks to learn about them and I will start a question answer thread on here! I would like to thank Team Magic Model LTD.
