Thanx and srry if I caused any problem for u mike
No worries - and I don't think you or your brother caused me any problems - I just thought it might be nice to know what I could have possibly done to create the feelings expressed.
"what he did to get where he is today is what makes me lose respect for him" - this is where I am confused. All I have done is share my knowledge and experience, and use it to develop products that interest me, and clearly interest others in the hobby. I haven't stolen any secret code.
I did used to work for Chris Fine years ago - I fixed his nitro cars in his hobby shop(actually, I took them home and fixed them). I also PROVIDED Chris with brushless car/truck setup information, gearing information and I introduced Chris
to Lehner motors and BK Electronics. The fact is, the 1st brushless car Chris Fine ever saw was my Emaxx
. If you catch him in a weak moment, he may admit it, but I wouldn't count on that happening - it is the absolute truth, though. Yes, I fixed cars for him, and we had many conversations regarding brushless cars and trucks, but as I suspected, the story got skewed along the way some how(no doubt Chris told his side and nobody asked me my side). Nothing was stolen from Chris at any point in time(not by me anyways) - we both shared information - and i continue to share brushless information on a daily basis - just not with Chris.
Even through my 1st year or so in business, I continued to share knowledge and experience with Chris - I told him what combos to sell and what gearing to use with the combos (not the other way around as your brother may think) -this is just the kind of person I am, and anyone that actually knows me can surely attest to this fact. Chris and I had a "falling out" when he tried to sever my contacts and suppliers(same suppliers I had introduced him to years prior in fact!) - rather than focusing on his own business, he instead tried to bring down mine. It obviously didn't work, as I am still in business 5 years later. It sounds like he is still trying.
I didn't build my name by defacing him or anyone else - be sure about this. What's more, I can't think of any product that I offer that is anything like Chris Fine's products - I do things totally differently than they do, and the knowledge I have gained over the years has been from experience (my own and thousands of others who are customers, friends or otherwise). No stolen secret code. Nothing sheisty. Just plain hard work, determination and love of the hobby.
And we have had a D8 motor mount for a month or so - it will probably work with the truggy along with the buggy.
