A quote from Marc Rheinard:
“I am looking forward to the new challenge racing the Tamiya 801x/xt for Tamiya America. It’s a bonus that I will get to race along side my friend Lee Martin and have someone to share ideas with in the upcoming nitro races in the USA and in Europe. The 801x/xt has great potential, and I am anxious to get it on the track for my first race in the USA. I would like to thank Tamiya America for giving me this great opportunity, and look forward to many great results in the future!”
