Quite possibly some of the most well-known and most popular fuel used in the late 1990's and early 2000's belonged to non-other than Steve O'Donnell of O'Donnell Fuels. In 2008, O'Donnell actually developed his own 1/8 buggy which was an IFMAR Worlds finalist with Jared Tebo behind the wheel in North Carolina. Today, Steve and his son, Brad, have now ventured further into the industry and have taken new roles with TLR for 2012!
TLR Press Release:
Horizon Hobby is proud to welcome Steve and Brad O'Donnell to the organization. Steve will assume the role as Technical Advisor for Race Chassis Development and will work alongside his son Brad, Team Losi Racing Engineer Dan Hissam, and drivers such as Adam Drake and Mike Truhe. Steve will be instrumental in developing new products for the Team Losi Racing vehicles. Steve's vast experience, including 5 IFMAR World Championship titles, CNC machining knowledge, and over 25 years of RC and engineering experience, will help continue the dominating presence of Team Losi Racing in the 1/8th off-road nitro category.
Steve's first race with the team is this week at the 13th annual Dirt Nitro Challenge at the Fear Farm R/C Raceway in Phoenix, Arizona. Steve will support the entire team and the Team Losi Racing 8IGHT 2.0 buggy and 8IGHT-T 2.0 Truggy platforms.
