Team Losi Racing is proud to announce american star Dakotah Phend has signed a two year contract extension with Horizon Hobby. It’s hard to believe that 2016 will mark the tenth anniversary of his first signing with Team Losi Racing. In that time, Dakotah has positioned himself as one of the elite drivers in the world and earned the nick name “The Phenom”.

With over ten ROAR National titles, numerous IFMAR Worlds finals appearances and countless other major event wins before the age of twenty…we’d say he’s earned it!

Dakotah will continue his long running use of Spektrum Pro level radio systems and high-performance servos. He has used Spektrum since the inception of the first pro level transmitter and trusts Spektrum reliability and performance to deliver more wins. He will also continue to rely on world championship winning Team Orion products carried exclusively by Horizon Hobby. From everyone at Team Losi Racing, Spektrum and Team Orion, thanks for the outstanding race performances and we look forward to more in the years to come!

To round out the deal, Denney will be making the switch to run the new Spektrum servos in all of his 1/10 and 1/8 vehicles. In the horsepower department, Denney will also be making a change to the World Championship winning Team Orion and will use all 1/10 & 1/8 electric products for 2016.
