It is apparent that there are people here who know Angelo and his opinions, but he stated what would be perceived as an actual fact.
New people to this industry or people who do not know better, (potential customers) might actually believe his post and as a result, jeopardize the ability of a company like Caster to be able to sell products in a fair market.

Obviously, there is the notion of free speech and I fully support it, and if it was a racer or customer who says that the servos suck or they had a problem and gave us the opportunity to respond, I would be all for it. But when another company claims they did a test and gives no credible details as to their testing methods, etc... That is called libel.

I would highly recommend that Angelo either retract his comments or explain them in detail, or I might just offer him an all expense paid trip to Iowa....and I won't be paying it. I have 37 questions that I will be asking....

Im sick of the reading forum pages and see him posting that its bad too.

This is the 3rd thread today that i have read that he has rubbished a company.

I have 2 in my 8th scale buggy and I have had no problems. Fast, super strong torque, and center perfect. I actually think they pull less power, after a 45 minutes main and after 2 weeks I still ran 3 qualifiers and practice before re charging.

I personally think everyone has an opinion and is entitled to it. However your choice of words definitely leaves something to be desired.

I'm running Ace servos mostly, and think they are great... but I'm not going blow chunks on the thread like that. Why is cobra still being talked about in the caster threads????

I have run one Caster servo and it felt fine to me. I plan to run more...
