I hope so it seems Tamiya is a lil ticked about it lol. All i know is you can give the guy a 2 by four with wheels and an engine and he can win so what ever he gets as a ride he will dominate and prove he can win the worlds. BEST OF LUCK TO RYAN THIS WILL BE A RACE WORTH SEEING!

Lutz is probably the nicest driver i have meet. He goes out of his way to make sure the products he pushes are running well for you.

That would be awesome if he joins Mugen. But dang why wouldnt Losi want to pick him up. They have the most depth when it comes to fast pro's.

Very down to earth pro-driver he does his best to make your rc day a great one regardless of what car or product you run...I hope where ever he goes he is happy and can continue to be competitive with it(which I am sure he will)

Best of luck Ryan... I'm sure whatever you chose to run you will represent to the fullest and push the platform to the limits

Ryan already has the title of nicest pro on the planet, now he needs to add the WC stamp to it. Good luck to Lutz.

Well to Ryan's defense, though the Tamiya's seem to handle well, I know they have struggled with durability. At X-Fest in MN this year watched him break his buggy 3 times in the main (but they did keep putting it on the track), and DNF in the Truggy Main. (Though that Pink Headed Alpha was god-aweful fast!)

A source of mine close to the subject matter would lead to me to believe that Ryan will probably be running The Car

If he ran for JQ and THE Car, he could just as easily work out an arrangement to run whatever truggy he choses since JQ doesn't have a truggy. That would be my bet if he goes this route.

I have seen Ryan take a random car from a local guy and lap the entire field , in a 5 minute heat!!

he is just a great driver and a great person in general

it has been exciting to see Ryan go from a fast local to one of the best in the world, and we still enjoy getting to see him when he comes home to Ohio for a visit.

i hope he goes to Mugen
porkchop needs the help!!!,lol
