Caster Racing USA announced today the signing of multiple time 1/18th scale champion, Tim Mohr, to their factory team for 2009. Mohr will be racing the new Caster Fusion EX-1R Factory Team buggy at the 2009 RC Pro Series, along with selected other events. Tim of St. Louis Missouri, jumped into the public eye by winning many titles in 1/18th scale classes, including the 2008 q/18th Dirt 4wd and 2wd Pro titles and the 2007 RC Pro Series q/18th Scale title, among others. He was also an early proponent of brushless motors and lithium batteries for use in rc car racing and said the following:
Electric eight scale is at the cutting edge of technology in our sport, right where I like to be. I’m really stoked to be given the chance to race the Caster Fusion EX-1, as it sets the standard for the class.
