This seems so stupid... I believe HB/HPI did something similar a few years ago when they released the TCX or TCXX in the same timeframe. If you look at retail in general, you don't release products, especially high priced products AFTER Christmas since everyone will be strapped for cash at that point. Release the product in November at the latest or don't release it at all!!!

They are working diligently to test/refine parts to make sure they release the best possible product.

Looks like Freddy Sud... something from Awesomatix has now joined the ranks... this is great news as more and more drivers will be running HB.

They had to wait that long to help soften the blow for all those that just purchased the TCXX conversion kit.

Hopefully with Freddy joining the team they will run consistently in the ETS. That will be great.

You're half right, but you're all wrong. Immediately after Christmas is a bad time to release a new product, but this doesn't fit the bill.

This is an early spring release, which is the perfect time to release a luxury item that one typically would be buying for themselves. It's when the tax return checks start rolling in.

He ran those on his previous car as well. Several guys are running them now here in the US. Keven Hebert runs them as well as myself. They are super quiet and efficient. But if you are not careful setting the mesh you can strip them out! But once set correctly I have not stripped any.

In the US I am the distributor for Leespeed. Outside of the US I am unsure who are the distributors.
