I wish both Ryan and Tamiya all the best in the future!
porkchop is in there...

I see Ryan going wherever there is a competitive car that can afford him.
In todays economy it may be difficult to get on a worlds team this late.

either way Best of Luck to Ryan with whatever he decides!

I've raced with Ryan numerous times in the nor cal series and at delta rc.... The guy is fast and is super helpful.... I hope mugen would pay the bucks for him because he is a awesome guy and he would most definitely help and support others that drive mugen in nor cal.... Good luck Ryan.....

We are working on that and have little time. Phone calls have been made and an answer will have to be given REALLY soon.
Racecrafter, whats your affiliation with Ryan? Do you represent him?

I think that would be the story of the year, New car, last minute driver change, world championship winning team!

I have never driven a Tamiya, but have seen Ryan drive! Man he is good!

Any of the best companies would do well to have him on their team.

To share my own experience, i talked to him this year at the Psycho Nitro Blast III. He was super down to earth, easy to talk too, ready to help and fun to watch! Out of 400 drivers there, he walked up to me after and asked how my weekend went. That was very cool. I talked with him about family, racing and being on the road constantly. He was open to my conversation and polite as he could be.

On the contrast, at the same event the first two words i heard come out of another pro drivers mouth were cuss words, when i looked around there were 5 kids standing around hanging on his every word..........

I doubt and hope it is not Xray. Good car and good company, but i do not like all the hop ups that they throw at their customars all the time. Also, they do not have alot of mony to spend anymore. Their team has become alot smaller the last two years.

I hope Joseph can get what needs to be done so he can pick up Lutz. JQ has been working very hard and i hope he will succseed.

So you don't like an innovative company that's constantly working on improving their products?

I'd love to see him pick up an Xray. Whether they have the money or not is something that none of us know, but we do know that seeing their car at the top of all the major US races and Worlds would drastically increase sales.

I consider Ryan to be a friend and it is not my place to discuss particulars. As you all know Ryan is a man of great integrity, the decisions he's made have been only after an incredible amount of careful consideration & thought.

Whatever he decides to do will be in the best interested of his family & himself.

Ryan good luck my friend! I know you will be successful in whatever you decide to do!

Living here in norcal and racing with the guys around here I have to say between Atondo and Lutz they both are always ready to help the local guy. Lutz personally took the time to go over engines and pipes with me when I started running speed engines. He is a no bs what you see is what you get type of guy. I like the way he sets the bar high when illustrating track etiquette set only by his actions. The same can be said of Atondo. It's nice to have good examples of what to do it's just too bad more of the local racers here don't pay attention to it. It cracked me up when a bunch of local guys jumped on the Tamiya band wagon, I wonder what they will do now. I would have speculate that it is not a coincidence that the car was tested here in nor cal. They could have tested it anywhere and the original test site at riverfront is the closest track to Lutz. Hummmm I do know that wherever Luts goes he will be great.

Carlos, the way that was presented it seems like he might not race at all?? Is this possible?

Edit: i just read his letter on Neobuggy, I didn't see anything he said that indicated that he would be racing for sure. Seems like he is "open" to whats next?

I wonder if he isn't looking for a position with a large manufacturer based on his character and integrity that has been talked about here??

I know the constant travel of a racer is difficult, he has young children i am sure he wants to spend time with.

I'm just a face in the crowd. I spoke to Ryan at X-Fest over the last couple years. I found him to be both humble and fun-loving. He's an extraordinary person. I know he'll do well and be happy no matter what he does.

Moto
