great driver, expensive batteries! I wonder what makes the ProTek batteries worth the money compared to other brands of similar capacity.

Well they may not be worth it, Atsushi gets them for free so of course he thinks they're great.

Yeah he was Hot Bodies #1 driver. He may still be since neither of these sponsorships conflict with HB, so guess he could still be an HB driver and just use their batteries? Then again the Atsushi Hara D8 buggy HB released a while back was a nitro.

Yeah I don't really understand how all that works. Seems he could be on multiple teams as long as they aren't competitors, then again I'm sure the Hot Bodies website holds the answer.

Amain is just an additional sponsor. HB is Hara's chassis sponsor, Amain is his battery, charger, and tool (i think) sponsor. Amain is also sponsor's Ryan Lutz to use Protek gear, and Amain is the full sponsor of Dylan Rodriquez.
