In response to all the talk around the internet today about Ryan Lutz leaving Tamiya and whether they will continue their off road program, Tamiya America have sent us the following statement. “Tamiya America Inc. would like to announce that it has ended its partnership with R/C factory driver Ryan Lutz. Throughout the recent 2009 and 2010 seasons, Ryan has been piloting Tamiya’s TRF 801Xt and TRF801X across the country and around the globe. We wish Ryan the best of luck with his future endeavors with his R/C driving.”
TRF members, Rest assured Tamiya is committed to continue the development of its TRF801 nitro program along with its other programs. With your support, feedback and help we will get you the best product possible for your enjoyment. As the lead TRF driver, Ryan has been one of the most active members on the TRF website. His race blogs, his good nature, his set up advice and overall funny wit will be missed. We are left with two good years of fond memories. Our best wishes will always be with him.
