Hi 1speedy, I don't know you, or if you have any personal issues against Jspeed or Ipanema (many do). You're entitled to your opinion and can feel/post whatever you like as it is the free internet. However, I feel they are exactly that...personal and it's probably a better idea to leave it off of the boards.

From reading all of the banter going back and forth, I have summed up that there is no love lost between the 2 of you. lol

In all fairness, you are also contributing to the nonsense by posting things that aren't in the best interest of GROWING this class. I'm not defending Jspeed, just poining out that you are also pouring fuel on the fire. Perhaps it's best to do as some members have and add him to your ignore list. That way you won't feel the need to retaliate and post messages that detract from the POSITIVE things that have come up in this E version GT thread.

Again, not singling you out as there are others who are just as involved, just hoping we as a whole can end all of the negativity on this thread. There is a lot of great information on here and I have learned a ton. I don't want to have to sift through pages of crap to get the info I'm looking for as I do on the Nitro GT thread.

I have also sent Jspeed a PM regarding this issue and the self inflicting damage he is doing to himself and his business. I feel bringing him back to this thread is just another opportunity for those that feel animosity towards him to take more jabs....again detracting from this great thread.

I hope we can all just leave the drama out and enjoy this growing Electric GT class. It doesn't matter to me what bodies, tires, chassis, championships or batteries people are running. I'm just glad they are running!

Hopefully we can meet and race together soon.

Those paint jobs look pretty cool btw!

Jai is a class act. Well said Bro! I'm not sure where this post all fell off track and it really doesn't matter at this point. Hopefully Jai's post will get us back on track and hopefully we can start having some fun again.

Corona this Sunday........Oh Yeah!!!!

I will respond with, I'm gonna put my alpha body on to prove that skill outweighs any advantage the cutout has made. Hopefully after this spanking I'm gon give you, you can leave my choice of body to run in an open class alone. lol. CHALLENGGGGGGEEEEEE!!! hahahahaha

Don't forget my shock-tower bro! Thanks for beefing it up.
No problem man, I don't have a problem with your body it just how you cut it out trying to get all the advantage out of it.(CHEATING)

Kcunamay:

After reading your post I would like to point out a few things.

You say you have ALSO sent jspeed a PM but my PM box has nothing from you why is that

If you would go back JUST A FEW PAGES you will find all jspeed does is tear down EVERYONE that doesn’t agree with him or run his products and call racers a hand full of names but you single me out??

You blast me for sticking up for your fellow racers?

My posts on this thread can be counted on 1 hand, yet you feel a 1500 word post on pointing out how I am throwing gas on the fire is wrong are you kidding me?

I have at least 3 PMS from people on this thread thanking me…


I also could don’t care what bodies, tires, chassis, championships or batteries people are running. I'm just glad they are running!

Would have thought someone of your caliber would have pmed me b4 putting me on blast but whatever I have thick skin.

#1 Rule Have Fun

I'll take a GT8 and GT8 Lite. Steve S.D.

Just in case, if you need to merge the GT8 Pros and GT8, I'm fine with that. I don't mind having you guys lap me and I promise to stay out of your way.

I'm pretty sure the rest of the San Diego posey will be there as well but I'll let them decide where they will run.

If you haven't noticed, there is a CLEAR difference between drivers in this class. I think when the same 3-4 guys win ALL the time, it is time to let others have a chance to win. It would be great to see 20-30 GT8's on an average, but realistically don't see that happening anytime soon. There SHOULD be a separation..we have been running GT8 for over 6 mos. We know who the pros are.
