and I would imagine that was the old stuff. I will be the first to admit that Caster was bad, but since jsut over a year ago, there have beeen drastic changes to make it better.

There is no Caster ZX-2R.

so good luck team caster and chris good lookn out. ill see you in woods soon im sure
I retract my reply

and J Blaze is a perfect example of buying the old stuff and then posting all the problems on our site. However, we will not hide from our past and we take it as a learning experience.

Chris, we should get you a fusion or 2 to be able to demo at the tracks. I will put money on it that Mugen owners will be eating their words after seeing one up close and personal if you know what I mean......lol.

I would have ran mine but the motor I bought for it is being sent back because it chewed a bearing inside it.

It's a never ending battle guys.

Everyone has there opinion....and it always seems to make us look bad when we all jump on here to defend our product and call out the problems of other brands. So, I think we should leave this thread alone before it gets really retarded and all the other haters fly in here to drop their poop on the floor.


General.....thanks for your opening words.

And I hope the rest of your season goes better.

So here it is Caster USA mike mazza or who ever run this outfit im letting you know. you did made a good choice by hooking up with Chris and your other drivers PETE PAYNE CAlVIN Carpenter and Johhny Grenot did you guys proud as well at the state race. so good job on picking up some Orange county Fla boys for your team. These guys are newly sponsored and proved today why they are. Thanks Chris and my boys from OCOEE Way to represent.
Funny thing is this guy used to really like me!
