Yeah I GUESS NO MORE S400.
Do you thinks its wise to advertise race results on your website for a car you no longer produce?!?!?!?!?!
What is even more ridiculous is that someone has to ask you on a thread weather or not their car is discontinued. If you guys took time to post race results for the car why not also post the fact that the s400 has been discontinued. Oh wait I know why, because if you were honest with the market they wouldn't buy the last 100 or so s400s in your inventory. Why eat the cost of that inventory when you can have your customers do it for you. This is how you very quickly loose the trust and loyalty of customers.
See I have no problem with a car being discontinued - it happens in rc for whatever reason all the time. I have a huge problem with a company that isnt upfront about it. Now I understand that things happen fast in business and its hard to get information out there. But as a recent purchaser of an s400 I have to say that I feel completely ripped off when a company pulls the rug out from under me after I just helped clear the last few of their s400s out of their inventory. This is bullshit and this is not how you do business in this country.
I am the first to say that the s400 is the MOST dialed TC on the market, but I am now the last person that would ever want to do business with a company that is so badly organized and communicates so poorly with its customers.
Now I know exactly what you are going to say. - "this development was unforseen and happened very recently. This information will be posted on our site that will be up next week" Thats bullshit and I want you to know that we know it. Serpent parts have been MIA for months now so this production problem isnt something that came out of nowhere. It certainly didnt come up in the last week. The same week in which you guys posted this:
Ill probably race my s400 for as long as my parts last, but only because I cant afford a TRF416 right now. if you guys came out with a new touring car I dont think I could buy it unless you helped out people who recently bought s400s or showed a commitment to better communication.
