daninter,

The good thing about the Warrior body is that you don't necessarily have to run the "gurney flap" on the rear spoiler. On my open car for the GT Nats in Joliet back in Sept 2009, I ran the gurney flap. On my spec car, I did not. The body has good downforce on the rear without the flap install or extended really tall if you do have it attached.

Went to Mikes for some off-road and on-road today. As soon as I sat the DM-1 on the track, people came from all directions to see it. This thing really pulls a crowd.

Passing 10th scales like they were stopped on the track.

We are definitely excited about running there next weekend for the SWCS Round 2. Can't wait!

This thread has been positive in nature for the past few weeks until you two came on here today with this mess. If either of you don't like his car body or tires, don't buy them. You have plenty of other choices as far as tires and bodies to choose from from several different manufacturers. But, there is no need to dig up and start a bunch of crap that happened a while ago. It doesn't say much about you if you continually keep throwing up old spats out here to try to discredit him. A wise person that doesn't like him would steer clear of him and not pay attention to anything he posts if you truly don't like Jspeed.

As far as the Warrior body, it has been winning races since being introduced back at the Ipanema Worlds in Homestead, FL in March 2010. Jspeed took time to carefully design and craft a body as a better alternative to the brick Kyosho bodies (ie: BMW and Subaru) that would be on par with the Kyosho Ferrari body. Many of you screamed for alternatives to the hard to get Kyosho bodies and almost non-existent OFNA bodies (most had been discontinued), he gives you one and you still complain. Funny how many knock a product before they try it.

If you two guys run GT cars, you have plenty of options to choose. If you two guys don't have GT cars, shame on you for your recent posts. Rehashing old feuds is not the way of the GT family. We old-timers of the GT family are trying to do things and put out info that would attract new racers to the family and what you two have posted today was unnecessary. Like an earlier post stated, constructive criticism is okay but downright unprovoked bashing could be a testament a lack of professionalism and character. If you will, take your negativity and feud with Jspeed somewhere else because it is not wanted here.

IDK I've been reading this thread since day one and I still dont understand why some people like to waste their energy making negative comments. Like, seriously. I can't believe people actually get SO upset! I can picture them punching their keyboard as they are typing They are just TOYS

Like Jlock said TAKE YOUR NEGATIVITY SOMEWHERE ELSE
I post that I agree with what snrscion said in his post and
you two guys jump in my sh-t about it. But you say nothing
about the original post or to the man who made it.
Now, just who is bashing on who here?
You boys need to grow up and stop crying every time someone
doesn't share your opinions about someone else's product.
Seems like a few on here are getting the same treatment from
you guys when they post their new bodys and tires, if they
aren't what you run. Sorry, I'm nobodys fan boy and will run
what I like or find to be best.

What is the longest wheelbase that will fit under the GT2 class bodies and still fit proportionally with the wheel wells? Probably the Alpha R1 body if the length varies by body.

I'd have to agree with you Rageworks.. nothing you wrote is of bashing nature. I guess JLock owes you a retraction after all, he should practice what he preaches.

You know what man, you are right the way I quoted makes it seem like I'm only talking about your post. Accept my apologies. Didn't mean to bash on you.

Are any of you GT guys going to make the Vegas grand prix race the end of April? It's always a good time down there. I know about 10 of us from Utah will be there.

Jspeed,

It has been quiet for a day on the thread about that stuff. Lets not rehash it; let the sleeping dog stay asleep. Nothing is accomplished by getting the hating/bashing started once again. Let's focus on the positive aspects of the GT class and our particular brands of cars. Let's keep this to helping/giving advice to the GT racers that may have issues with their cars; getting them back on track (no pun intended).

Can we keep the discussion positive for a change?!? Lets save the drama for the daytime soap opera!!
