WOW, over whelming already, the emails I have received in 12 hours, nice ones at that.
More info from emails I have received.
Hello racenut, the pricing we are working on right now for the racers, dealers and distributors. We would like to get into the races as the spec tire like mentioned before, but pricing as everything to do with that. Our tire is awesome and I feel racers would not mind paying a little more when they can get more quality runs and able to take the tire home and use at club races and still be fast.
So I donít get blasted by racers and other tire companies, my whole intension is not to hit spec tire racing, but if that what the racers want then I will. I am also not a strong believer in club level spec tire racing, that is why I am doing racing pre-mount tires, there is a differance. Everybody says it even the playing field and itís cheaper at club level that is hog wash. I am there to win and once you find a combo stick with it and use the tires you like most, if it is a tire you choose to run and win than the next racer better try it, at big races then spec tire are o.k.
Spec tires cost just a little less than any great tire combo un-pre glued tires of the racers choice. I know we all can get in a debate about this, but I wonít, this is just my option and I have no problem with others option.
I have had a lot of companies help me out over 10 years in business at SpeedWorld and I refuse to step on anybody toes to make money specially JACOís, I will still work with everybody that has worked with me over the years. I am a strong believer in karma so it will all work it self out for SpeedWorld Sorex or I will step away. I enjoy sleeping at night and do care about what people think of me.
One, I know the racers don't want to spend more money but with the combination that we have, your defiantly getting more use out of the tires and able to go faster than ever, so that is money saved. That is why I choose not to come out with a pre-mount 5 years ago. 1) Not the right contacts and 2) I did not want to have a tire for few good runs like a true spec tires. There is defiantly nothing wrong in any way or shape about other spec tires or companies on the market that is not what I am doing with my racing pre-mounts.
I am a racer and I have always liked a great tire, go fast and NOT care about gluing my own tires. Most racers have gotten lazy or spoiled (no punt intended) over the years and will not glue their own up and it has hurt my business, but it is what it is. That is why it as taken me so long to put on the market a quality pre-mount, I wanted the best, period and I think I have found it.
And for those racers that have sent emails and have asked all sort of questions, Let me say this stright foward, if it was not for JAC at JACO racing stepping away from his business a little to help me, this would not even be possible for SpeedWorld to do. Jac did not in anyway asking for anything, just to glue our pre-mounts, I had asked if he would not mind if I can use is rims since it is a quality rim and worked extremely well in testing and he said not at all, so that is already a win for JACO.
It not always about making money, yes we all want to make money, but some times you have to give to get. If the racers are happy, then I did my job correctly and professionally.
