From Cody King (via Facebook):
2010 IFMAR 1/8-Scale Off-Road World Champion Cody King announced on his Facebook page yesterday evening that he will run REDS Racing motors and speed controls in his electric off-road vehicles this season. The move marks a complete departure from Team Orion after nearly a decade.
"So with the 2016 race schedule kicking off with the Reedy race, I want to announce I will be running Reds Racing electronics in my electric powered vehicles. I'm looking forward to working closely with Reds, the team drivers, and customers on set-up and race support. I also want to say huge thank you to Team Orion, and wish them nothing but the best in the future. They have been a huge part of my racing program all the way from the beginning. It's tough to cut the cord, but the time is right for this move."
