No offense was taken buddy. I can definately see eric and others kinda getting frustrated. I just dont want to see the frustration offend anyone at XRC being that they really did do us all a favor with the article. I know all about unrealistic lead times and things dont always work out but we need to think of it a little differently. CRC,Speedmerchant, and BMI did get our cars in there with mention of the Darkside car along with a picture of it. AE and Tamiya were stated as possible contenders also. This alone opens a big window for every manufacturer interested. It shows a long list of soon to come cars along with future cars. People wont be as scepticle about picking one up if they see the class is supported by so many manufacturers and is big enough to make the magazines. We all kinda support eachother by offering cars.
So long story longer
, dont get all worked up if you couldnt get a car ready in time,it happens to everyone at some point. The cars will all be noticed and will be well known in a short time.
