Ask yourself this then, why don't top drivers outside of Japan drive the MTX3 then.
Same reason as Kyosho, not many team drivers drive the V one RR EVO outside of Asia
This is because of sponsership.
In north america, team associated and trinity sponser many top drivers, so you see many of their cars in the races here. However, I believe that mugen does not... so you dont see as many of their cars in the big events. (note the word as many)
however, take a look at japan, do you think that the people there think that assiciated (just an example) suck because they dont have as many factory sponser drivers driveing their cars there? Of course not! But kyosho and Mugen dominate there...
I can bet you that the serpent 710, under the hands of a pro, will be just as fast as a pro driving a mugen or a kyosho or any other car
I dont judge a car by how many international races it has won, because nearly any car can win.
