As far as their top Team drivers, there is no argument that Adam Drake is one of the smartest, hardest working drivers in the sport. He is an Icon and a great ambassador for us. However, I mean no disrespect, but I can't help but feel that his time to run at the front consistently is behind him. He is still fast, and very good for the team! Same with Truhe. In the US, Cole Ogden can be super fast and it wont be long before he makes his way to a podium spot at a large race. Remember, he came to Mugen this season after driving Losi for the majority of his career. My point is, the lower level sponsored drivers, most doing well in their local area, help a bunch with keeping the Mugen near the top of the list of cars to own. My 2 cents.
Yea for sure, adam wasnt hired to be a winner in the big races,but he is still a huge threat, he brings with him a huge following of racers... Look what he is doing for mugen right now.. He will be a threat at making the main for sure at the worlds....like he said" im not the fastest but im the most prepaired".. And he is... Hate how tlr did him
