tekno hara test

Atsushi Hara continues to flit from one brand to another until they find the “RC” Holy Grail. This morning the Japanese driver posted on his Facebook page a photo of his “new challenge”: test all 1/8 Tekno RC cars. Tekno RC is rising and the performances of their top drivers Ryan Lutz and Joe Bornhorst prove the ability of Tekno vehicles at the top level.
