Customer Ride: Mugen Blanket (JDM Warm & Fuzzies)

** Long-time King supporter Dewi sent this product review in... Thanks Dewi! **


My family are Honda/Mugen nuts and we import all of our Mugen goodies from King Motorsports to Scotland, so when we found out we were having a baby girl we started our DB8 (4 door Integra Type R) project as our family car.  It came as no surprise we wanted the right JDM parts to finish it off. This consisted of a baby Recaro in grey to match the car and whilst trawling King’s website we came across a black Mugen fleece blanket, so we ordered it up for car and stroller duties. 


 

The blanket is lightweight but warm, also very easy to keep clean if any spillages occur and our daughter loves the softness of the fleece. When it’s all tucked in, it keeps her very warm and she sleeps well without irritation.  We like to call her the ‘Mugen Slug’ so from a happy mum and dad we rate this product 5 stars for Mugen pervyness and 5 stars for performance and functionality.  Thank you very much King Motorsport for supplying us with this awesome quality product.

David vs. Goliath

11/6/10, Road Atlanta

Heading into the SCCA ITA American Road Race Championship, Brian Price’s Miata was considered the car to beat. With the horsepower and torque of a 1.8 engine combined with near 50/50 weight distribution, superior suspension design and rear wheel drive, the Moser Racing CRX had an uphill battle.


As expected, Brian Price and his Miata took the pole position with a new record of 1:41.589. Moser and his CRX were a close second at a 1:41.953. The strength of the Miata’s being its straight line speed on the long back straight of Road Atlanta became a nightmare for the CRX contingent. The Moser race strategy was to avoid losing contact with the Miata, apply pressure and use track knowledge to gain the upper hand.



The race is on! Moser and Price begin their battle for first place.


The first lap saw the Miata and the CRX go two abreast into Turn 1, the Miata taking the point on corner exit. A true battle was on! Lap after lap, Price and Moser swapped the lead for the entire 45 minute race! The Miata and CRX battled nose to tail, always racing cleanly but not giving an inch. Price bobbled at turn 10a with one lap to go and Moser grabbed the lead.  Price then used the 1.8 Miata power to repass Moser on the back straight but then bobbled on 10b on the last lap which opened the door for Moser to make the final pass for the win.

Described as the best race of the weekend, Price set a new race lap record of 1:40.741 with Moser second fastest at a 1:41.253. King Motorsport congratulates the 2010 ARRC ITA champion Joe Moser and the entire Moser race team, unbeaten in 2010!


Here is the entire race from the in-car on Joe Moser's ITA CRX. Incredible racing and well worth the watch!
