It appears there is some news. It seems as though GRP will be using more than one company to distribute their products in the USA. It also seems as though none of the companies will have the same products.

Mugen USA will be selling the 1/8th onroad tires.

I don't really know what they were trying to get away from. There won't be any competition between their brands, because there will only be one brand. None of the distributors will carry the same stuff.

One brand partially distributed thru several different places... interesting. A more cost effective way of monopolizing the market without pissing everybody off. Could be BRILLIANT! if the price is right.

It looks like GRP did it again. After all the talk about getting rid of all the brands, they just make a new one. Interesting, you never know what's gonna happen with this people.

These could be for Italy only. See on the box it says Schepis Model, they are the Mugen distributor for Italy. He (Schepis) also owns the Messina track where the worlds where held last year.

Whatever happened here? I'm a little surprised that one of the major tire manufactures for the sport hasn't finalized a US distributor heading into the summer (race season) for most of the US?
