**Yachnin joins STLR for 2009**

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Well with the 2008 GLORCS season behind us it did not take long for us to start evaluating the STLR Team and we all realized we needed some new, young blood on our team!!

I have been watching from the beginning of the year Daniel's professionalism, humbleness (is this a word) and flashes of speed. I feel that Daniel is light years from reaching his true potential and with guys like Peter and Dave (no not me) beside him it will not be long before the student becomes the master. So I would like to officially welcome Daniel to our team!!!

Daniel Yachnin will be the first of two driver changes at STLR (Sprucewood Team Losi Racing) for 2009!

Daniel will be running the Losi 8ight Buggy and Losi 8ight Truggy, running Morgan Fuel from Hobbycraft, using spektrum radios, Ace Servos, GRP Engines and getting additional support from CRC, King Heads and of course Pinnacle Hobby!!

We at STLR are very excited Daniel will be joining us in Chicago to beat up on the likes of Truhe, Drake and Fischer to name just a few who will be in attendance at the 2008 Horizon Hobby Shootout in Ilinois, USA October 10-12, it should be a BLAST!!

Welcome to STLR Daniel!

Congratulations Daniel,
Besides supporting great Canadian racers and the RC racing scene in general the addition of Daniel to this team is something I have been waiting to see from "The Team"

Now, I think it would be really cool to see Dave Henry and/or Peter Head run something new like the MP9, seeing they have "cleaned house" two years in a row with the Losi.

Thanks Jordan - It would be cool to see the guys try to win with another car and as we saw by the Worlds that all MFG were well represented. I really feel we are at a point where it is the best driver that wins and not what car he\she is running!

Losi took a chance on our team right from the very start and we have loved working\representing them so we at STLR have no plans of going anywhere! Also with so many racers now running Losi I feel it would be irresponsible to jump ship. Many racers have personaly told me they are running Losi because the team is. We always strive to have the parts and the knowledge at the track and to help out in any way we can. There is still room for improvement and things like the "Under 16 day" and maybe even a "Losi day" next year will help push us to do better.
