No, if you watch the video Ralph's engine was going away and that is how Collari caught him. Collari is a great driver with great product, but he is not the fastest. Everybody knows that you have to finish the race and that is what he is good at. I think this worlds is shaping up to be one of the best. Just look at all the car manufacturer's in it, Xray, Mugen, Shepard, Capricorn, Serpent, Motonica and Kyosho. I can't wait. I think the American's have a great shot at winning and being the most in the main. Ralph, Mikey, Paul, Paolo, Scotty, and Josh.

Plus I can tell you as for RCAmerica goes we are going there as a team and our testing starts at the Winternats and we have one goal...The Worlds!!!!!

Thanks Drew

Family Plan...good one. Pretty funny. No secret stuff here. The girls got an opportunity to get more involved in a team so I followed them.

I hope whit all of respect of Mr. Hudy that he donīt copy the MRX5...like the in the past with MTX4....

[/QUOTE]i like this one. i can't stop laughing at this. the 8 may not be exactly the same look as 5, but may be a lot similar as 4. just similar to the mtx4 to nt1 and with movable radio plate.
let see how much it is similar to,...............at least no photos so far.
hudy, do something you should do, try to invent or innovate more, not to "hopy" or "xopy". shame!!!!

Its always the same sad song when Xray is getting ready to come out with a car. Bottom line is the NT1 is nothing like the MTX4. If it is why is the NT1 such a better car. I think the races that the NT1 has won prove's that. What about the five looking like the Shepard or Serpent, they all have alum. bulkheads. There the same right? Or they all have wheels on them, thats the same right? Or what about that they all have belts. Wow all these cars are the same. The QUALITY is what makes the difference and team support, not reinventing the spoon.

Come on Choisan,

The car hasn't even come out yet and your trying to bash it already, relax, regardless what it looks like ...its an XRAY car


Hey has anyone else heard the rumor that Rick V is contemplating moving to the US ?? That would be a good Mugen driver here in the States.

Haven't heard that but everyone else is doing it. Savoya is here and now Reinard is coming. Hara spent some time over here as well I believe.

Mugen Seiki will always be our favourite brand to own. I'm sure there will be new kids on the block somewhere outhere to replace Mike's position in Mugen Seiki.

I'm wishing lots of good luck for all Mugen Seiki drivers participating in the world championship this year.

How many were stock? How many had Xray parts?

The car that you see in RedRC that Robert raced isn't the same one he actually raced.

And I don't know what your talking about, there is almost no Mugen sedan left in the States.

I have seen plenty Mugen 1/8th, but with the new RX8 and Mikey running it, I have a feeling that will change too.

So you guys don't think Mike will be faster with an Xray? I guess we will all have to wait and see.
Swauger will be just as competitive as always as long as he doesn't eat 2nd gear in every main. Ooops did I say that out loud?
