what's the use.. everybody wants to drive the big brands

JQ 11-05-2014 03:22 AM

I would just like to clarify officially that JQRacing did not sign any of these free agent drivers. Their offers simply were not good enough. ;)

janderson78 11-05-2014 03:22 AM

Again it sounds like he wants the whole package. I think AMain has the best ability to do that and he will be the lead guy for Sworkz with maybe a Team Manager like Mr Korn (who also knows his way around the track) to assist at the races. I mean in the dollars and cents of it Hara isn't selling any buggies in the USA and where are your best profit margins? Probably the brands you own or distribute. So why not push those brands. Hara can't help anyone at a race here or at any local events. So it would be logical for AMain to work with Sworkz to get a good driver here to build upon with Mr Blair.

Just speculation.

He's signing for Hotbodies. 100% on.

Sein 11-05-2014 11:20 AM

According to Neobuggy, it's Xray or Sworks for Lutz. I'm really excited to find out who for sure.

I would not consider "perhaps Xray or S workz" to be any type of confirmed destination. I am really curious if the behind the scenes information turns out to be true.

lilstewie 11-05-2014 11:33 AM

This is fun. . . we find out Friday, so here is to 2 1/2 more days of guessing.

Personally, I would hope he goes to HB. I thought it near impossible (with Hobbico owning the US distro) but remembered that Ty signed with the main company, and Ryan could too. I think this move, with his skills and the way he is in the pits, would instantly make HB the top in America. Hobbico would have to step up its game BIG TIME for all the parts support. . .not sure they can.

However, I think more than likely he is headed to Associated or Sworkz. If is those two, I hope it is Associated. Mr. Lutz has shown he likes a challenge (i.e. Tamiya and Durango), so it would be nice to see him with a proven company that seems close to getting their new buggy dialed. I'm afraid Sworkz would be another stumble, he would make many an Amain (pun intended) but not finish many at the top. If Hara cannot do it, I don't see how Ryan could.

He is going to be an asset wherever he lands, that is why I'd love to see HB get him. Between him, Ty and Reno (still rumored), that would be 3 continents of dominance!!! Still, I think since he is an Amain guy, you have to think Sworkz (and Amains $$$) is strong, but the being able to finish design at Associated would be great too.

Friday, Friday, Friday!!!

Someone on facebook posted some newly painted body kits for Lutz, which looked sort of like Mugen body kits.
But I don't drive Mugen so I'm not so familiar with their body kit. Is the Sworkz or Xray body very similar to the Mugen body?

This is the photo that was posted. Are these Mugen bodies? if so, mystery explained.

Those are not Lutz bodies and not even done by his painter.

Definately look like Mugen shells not sure about the other comapnies

Jaz240 11-05-2014 12:03 PM

Lets not even think Lutz's painter would give away the secret before Ryan made the announcement.

Jaymancd 11-05-2014 12:09 PM

may not have been his painter

Eivind E 11-05-2014 12:24 PM

that's true, and it could be someone else's lutz-themed body kits..

Jaymancd 11-05-2014 12:35 PM

or it could be just some random guys idea that looks like a lutz body. I am sure he is not the only one who uses pink and blue for his bodies.

madweazl 11-05-2014 12:42 PM

I dont believe Hara went to Sworks with the intent of taking the buggy straight to the podium, I think he is there to help with the future development of the buggy and subsequently put it on the podium. With two top drivers, this could really speed up the process. All just conjecture though, who knows. I'd be surprised to see him go with a manufacturer across the pond if further support is the desired end state.

Lol, You are trying really hard to keep this news hush hush :D Which makes it more fun to put the pieces together. That article was not the only reason I mentioned that; please let me explain:
A statement was made on the 1st page that Ryan was not going to Associated, Losi, Mugen, or Kyosho.

That statement was confirmed by Frank who is one of your Team Drivers

Now, that could have been just a blanket statement, just stating that Ryan was angry about the leak BUT Frank quoted your statement and responded with this:

So obviously Jaz you know and Frank also knows. With all the evidence on the table, that "perhaps" from Neobuggy can be a pretty solid one :D:blush::) All in all, I'm still guessing but having a lot of fun doing it.

Ssilverfz1 11-05-2014 02:09 PM

It does make perfect sense

Jaz240 11-05-2014 03:07 PM

Lol, I don't have any confirmed info. Just insider knowledge which could have been a cover scheme to throw people off. I do know that Ryan was upset that people were talking so out of respect we shut down the Underground Railroad :D
We all get official destination on Friday.

Also Redrock started selling sworkz rather recently so I am sure you can add that to the guess work ;-)
