Jeff,

I thought you've been in this game long enough.

The guys over at the NT1 thread are drooling for the car to come in.
What they fail to understand is, that the guys who ran the car in Ft.Myers, would have been in the same positions with any of the better cars out there.

What I don't get is, why Mugen didn't let their big dogs at them, i.e. Swauger and Fukuda, but instead leaving the field to the copy cats.

How about TM? Didn't they have a team good enough to make the A?
BTW, I'm one of them guys drooling for one, not because it did well at winternats, but this will be my 4th xray and I'm yet to be disappointed. And for the "marketing tactic" jeff bbq mentioned, yeah, they're really desperate for marketing tactics like that! Give me a break! Was the body height dq another marketing tactic so that one of the best drivers on the team doesn't run in A?? All 8 of their cars out of some 94 entries made it to top 2 mains, even Juraj himself ended up in B and I don't think he is considered one of world's top drivers...

Stefan, Jarrod Scott made the A final for Mugen (qualified 9th and finished 6th). Big Jeff BBQ, I think it lacks tact to make posts like this against Xray when you were part of the event providing food. You are definately entitled to your opinion, I just think some of what you are saying is a little harsh. Some things are better left unsaid. Just my 2 cents.

As for the Sedans racing at the Winternats.
It was a blast as always.

I cant belive a World class Team x-ray could overlook a tech issue like that.
Their paying the wrong people.
What it did for all of us small time drivers in all of the mid to lower mains was there was no chance to advance,all you could do was let this World Champion
blow past you to win the race,race,race,race,race......
No body in this sport wants to be the axe man and take out someone like that.
I dont think with all the qulifiers that was the best he could get in to start at the bottom,I think it was a marketing Tactic
Starting at the bottom battling to the top,passing all the small to mid time drivers putting in there mind that this car is the best thing out,ooooh i got to go get one.
$$$$$$$$$$$$

The real test will be when the everyday racer gets his/her hands on it and then lets see!

I'm there to be in the middle some where and to have a great time and learn from the pros.

just my 2cents worth

Thank you again MMR for the donated gifts.

Jeff

Dude, sweet. I have to agree with you. Plus I always catch "flack" (no pun intended) For using the word "POP" instead of "SODA". Thanks for letting me know that I'm not the only one using this word! Peace bro!
