It is not relevent. Just responding to your post on top of this page, which is not relevent either!

How many Mugen cars in the top 10 last WC in Brazil?

None if Mugen did not send its top drivers or Swauger did not do well (I don't know if he was there or not). However, at least Mugen has been in the top 10 and winning races around the world. How many G4/Mongoose cars were in the top 10 in that same race in Brazil? Oh, let me answer that one for you, ZERO.

I think you know the reason why MTX-3 did not make the A is not because the car is slow but because Mugen did not send their top team out to Brazil.

I don't know many top drivers in the US that is sponsored by Team Magic to drive the G4. In fact, I don't know any. Whereas in Taiwan where G4 is made, it regularily TQ and win national races besting the RRR, 710, and MTX-3's out there. Why? cause the top drivers there are sponsored to drive the G4.
Sorry to chime in but I couldn't let this one slide by.............
Unless you were there you don't know, the US team was there and yes it was not the car or driving skills that kept the car out of the top ten.
The Kyosho team came very prepared everyone else including Mugen was taken by surprised by there effort, and I also think Mugen USA has proven themselves at every race since then.
If you think one race proves a car to be superior to another then that's your opinion but I think consistency proves more.

Lets just say bad luck, it had nothing to do with skills.
With rain almost every day bad fuel issues then to top it off his throttle servo goe's out in the middle of his run in the semi finals when he was in second..............it was like it was not ment to be.
Team Mugen USA went with three drivers from the USA when everyone else had very large teams, 10 or more on a team what are the odds one will get into the main, 20 or more on a team makes the odds better.

Robbie, some of the top Mugen guys like Fukuda from Japan did not make it to Brazil. Read my post again I said specifically that it's not the car. Nor did I said that one race prove anything but it was cited as an example why it's not the car.
