Why would any other company other Mugen be the distributer....

If I was the business strategist it would only make sense to follow the products that mugen will be selling with other products that add value to the distributer and keep the company profitable for many years to come... Mugen has the new Ninja engine and it probably would help to establish the GRP line of products in the USA by allowing one company to sell all of them.... They have clothing apparel, bags, watches, tires and now engines.... As an established company I would imagine they would need to maintain a corporate standard and seperating their product line does not allow that..... Something to do with the vision and integrity of the company..

Just my thought......

I've heard the Jacos provided better side bite and forward traction.

Team Serpent USA tested the new tires at Ft Myers and from what I saw they were lookng good.. Overall traction increased over the Ellegi's and allowed the team to drive the car harder... Paolo M. was running his sedan consistently in the 12.9-13.0 range... That means in the winternats he will be faster.......Look out!!!!!!!

I hope to be out at Revelation this Saturday testing some tires out. If anyone else wants to try out some new tires, meet me at the track on Saturday.

By the way, all remaining Arrows GRP tires in stock here at GS are going on sale.

i don't think you can get a good test on a set of tire at revelation, just my 2 cent;don't want you to waste your time, unless you trying out 45 and 50 compounds. nothing against revelaton but the traction there is very very high so it might make your tire seem to soft for its conditions

GRP may not have things figured out about who is going to import their line, but boy do they dress sharp.
