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.
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!
