I will not go into detail here but I will say I did not leave Kyosho because I thought the car sucked. That being said I am looking forward to a great year with RCAmerica and my Xray NT1 car.
Scott, thank you for the honesty and the details. I know the parts are not cheap, but from my experiance they take a beating ( I have hit almost everthing atleast once) and rarely fail.

Yes it is. For anyone thats wants to read go to www.teamxray.com. Mr.Hudy is the hardest working man in RC. The first car he ever made was by hand. Pretty cool.

Thanks Drew

Yes we tried many bodies, but the SRC body he liked was the SRC Zytec V2.

Thanks Drew

We heard some rumors about his departure from Mugen and today RCAmerica/Xray USA have announced the signing of Mike Swauger for the 2011 season. Mike is a World Champion, Multi-time World’s finalist and has many National titles also. They are very excited with what Mike brings to the table for the 2011 season. Mike will be using the NT1 WE and the all new RX8 this season along with SRC 1/10 and 1/8 tires. The first race out for Mike will be the Winternats in Fort Myers FL and he will also be attending the up and coming 1/8 World Championship in Homestead, FL. Mike had this to say about the deal:

I will be helping Xray USA with R&D and some team management on the West coast. Thanks to everyone that has showed me support thru the years and I am proud to let everyone know that my new home is RCAmerica/Xray USA.

No.

The importer for Mugen into the US is Mugen USA.

I believe Mugen USA is led by Robbie Collins (Or he was the person I knew of). Like someone said on this thread or another, Mike Swauger was really just the ambassador for Mugen and really the Mugen Brand in the USA was identified by him and his color scheme.

I am pretty sure his addition to the Xray Team has been one of the best moves RCAmerica has achieved.

I want to congratulate again Mike Swauger for this new venture and I am pretty sure he will be an awesome addition to the team.

Thanks for clearing up the importer question.
I agree this is great for rcamerica. I seen Swauger race in person in MD and it was amazing to watch him drive 1/8th scale. Wish him all the best with the rx8.
