I meant no disrespect to Marty or even Joseph himself as they are both really fast drivers. I was making reference to the more "world" famous drivers who are top 10 in every A Main of every race they enter

Durango has more than just a 1-2 punch! Savoya, Lutz, Boots, McBride and possibly Battle! They def got their wallet out!

We got our kits and parts in today. While yes the car has a heavy price tag, the parts are the most reasonable I have seen. Stocking up on extra parts is no problem at all.

Maybe, maybe not. It's possible that Durango are simply profiting from Mugen's own cutbacks. This was bound to happen in some form or another, just look at how many buggies there are on the market ATM. The wheat is now being separated from the chaff.

I wish Renaud much success in his new venture!

The wheat and chaff has belonged to Hot Bodies for the past 2 years. They sold more cars than Custer killed indians.
In this current economy, pricing is a plus. Mugen took a price increase and the parts are very expensive.

On a positive note, Good luck Savoya!
