For me, 2008 began at full throttle with no chance to rest for even a day. I spent most of my time in January at finishing the last details on the new XB808 off-road nitro buggy, in both the R&D department as well as in the Production department inspecting all the new parts coming from the machines or the new moulds. The last few weeks of any project are extremely demanding as you are doing rapid-fire problem solving for the multitude of things that arise. During this busy period I enjoyed a very short break by participating at the one of the largest indoor racesâ€¦ a year-opening eventâ€¦ the DHI Cup. The team performed very well and took home double TQs and Vice-Champion trophy by placing 3 cars in the A main Modified category and 6 cars in the Stock category.
