Rick Hohwart gone...

I will still continue racing for Team Associated, but will now use LRP speedos, LRP BL motors, and Reedy batteries.

I'd like to personally thank everyone who supported me and Peak Racing in the past. I started the company way back in 1985 and without my loyal customers and sponsors, I would have been out of the R/C industry long ago.

R/C cars are my life, and I will continue working somewhere in the R/C industry. I am just not exactly sure where at this time.

It would be very hard to lose something you poured your life into.

Rick will do a great job where ever he ends up.

Ummmm....let's not forget...he just sold his company to KYOSHO.
The move allows Rick to keep his awesome creativity going...It'll just be under the REEDY/ASC/LRP banner....he's not retiring!!

I'm not sure he owned the company. Maybe his share. Which would be significant.

Kyosho now has it's own battery/motor/engine line to go with everything else. I wonder what the team will be using. HMMMMMMMM.......I'm guessing that Oscar stays. He would be a big loss.
