Moves like this one is not always about the cars, it's about relationships & buisness.

Best wishes to both Mike and to Mugen. The on-road cars have been very good, and Mikey knows how to get the most out of them! It's been great to have been able to photograph Mikey during much of that time.
Nooooo!! Really?? It's like Mugen cars were made for Mike...

In any case.. All the best to Mike, I'm sure he do well with whatever he's running.

Don't know him personally but he's an awesome racer
Your probably right at his level of racing and experience the car doesn't really matter as much as the deal behind it Good luck mike.

Yeah... if you aren't looking for it, one would probably miss it too....


I wish Mike Swauger the best of luck on his new venture... I am pretty sure his speed, consistency and results were not because of the car, but the driver himself.

The bottom line this is a great lose for both parties maybe for Mugen a little more because Mike will have followers do to the way he has treated and has helped us racers over the years. Mike is a great ambassador for the hobby and was for Mugen. It's really too bad this has happened before the 1/8 Worlds or happened at all, but Mike will prevail and show how good he is when he stays on top because he is if not one of the best drivers in the World hands down. Mike is a hell of a guy when you get to really know him and far from being selfish; he has helped everybody at races no matter what car they drive. He might not go to you at a race, but when any racer has approached him, he has helped them out if he could. Mike has helped or given parts to racers like no other manufacture factory driver has or I have ever seen and never have asked for a dime in return, that is what has brought customers to Mugen. Good luck which is not really needed but the company that picked him up will be lucky to have him on board.

Good Luck and let’s go racing and have FUN!!!!!
