My points exactly!!!!...If you look at Mugen, they only sale 3 different cars...Race cars at that!...They are a really small company.. Travis might be the only paid driver in the US for Mugen as of now..Travis is a cool cat.I also like Mugen cars but dont own one..I drove Mugens for years dating back to the Athlete and Sport 93'..Nice people over there at Mugen..

That's four right there. Though the MTX-4 is sort of discontinued pending the new car.

I just switched to Mugen from HB and the next day I read Amezcua was too. After I left he knew I was onto something .

I've talked to Travis at The Pit before about HB cars and he's always cool, always approachable. I'm excited for his new change, mine too.

We've had a mass exodus at our local track switching over to Mugen. I kid you not like 7 new people THIS week!! You build a quality car, build a good rep, and people will follow.

Kris that is

I think "something to prove" is reference to the worlds..... which baffles me also, you've been very successful IMO at a national and world level. Of course a win is what your after ultimately, my synopsis of the worlds is its a race of circumstances.... the fastest and most consistent guy doesnt always win, but it will definetly get you in the show..... you have to be on the receiving end of alittle good luck and capitalize on circumstances.

There's no doubt about your capabilities in any class, Im sure Mugen will get on the map this year
