If you look at all of Ryans results he won plenty with the 801x. He was in the press as much as Drake this year.


Sorry but IMO this is the wrong time for Tamiya to not support their only chance at a 1/8 World Title........
There sayin imagine what he can do with a car way more to par with losi etc. Not saying Tamiya is junk i dont judge what people drive but where im gettin this is give ryan lutz a losi and Adam a losi same weight etc and who will win. If lutz is in the pic with a Tamiya then hes ganna be way more dangerous with a losi or what ever picks him up, if the weight is the issue. Also im sure a new ride will add even more potentual to his success.

"The issue" right now is to find Ryan a ride for the Worlds.

We are working on that and have little time. Phone calls have been made and an answer will have to be given REALLY soon.

I guess it is possible that he COULD run THE Car for the worlds. Maybe JQ was able to get one for him? Just a thought

OOO ok i see what ur sayin now. My big ???? is why did Ryan leave aware that Worlds is coming then? Its a choice answer question if you dont want to answer that i 100% agree im just asking why. What ever team he gets on he will be good i know that and i know he wont be left out in the worlds if he is then the companies are making a huge mistake.

We know that Joseph is going to pick up a few big US drivers on his trip over here, and I think Ryan will be one of them. We shall see very soon, he was very tight-lipped when I talked to him today about the guys he sponsored, but they are some big names.

Probably because he wants to run a competitive ride at the Worlds. Just a guess.

It's not my place to comment on the particulars. I'm sure Ryan will give a press release now that Tamiya has fired the first shot.
