Its cool Bobby, don't sweat it, thanks.

Warrior bodies sold last year at around $60 each.

This year they're selling at around $45 dollars each. (a price drop of $15 dollars per body) Check with Lee, even our tire prices are better this year too!

Its all about helping GT racers and the GT class to grow.

From what I heard from some Mugen folks, there is nothing in the works at this time. If "we" can get this moving exponentially, then maybe Mugen/Xray/Losi may just aboard. For now, you will see only privateers modifying out one of the aforementioned cars for GT racing. Serpent is the only one seriously working on a GT car right now (Cobra GT).

Yes, there are "camps" in GT. This is made apparent everytime someone posts something about a competing product that another "camp" doesn't use. This is what is getting old and tired about this whole GT thing. If you and your buddies like Product X, that is your perrogative. Other folks may like Product Y, and that is their perrogative. These constant jabs at each other because someone doesn't use a product that someone else does is really counter-productive to the big picture. The same holds true with the personal beefs that has been well documented on the different GT forums between certain individuals. If someone doesn't like someone else, don't speak their name and ignore their postings; you don't have to respond back at all.

I am just waiting for someone to bump the record player so that the needle skips over the scratched part of the LP.

ive ran two races with it TQed one got rained out of main...and 2nd the next race.. its good for the smaller tracks in my area ...I also have the xz-blue that in my opinion would be perfect in a 2speed GT car rips on bottom and mid has decent top end ...ive tried 3 pipes on it including an OS 2060 felt like it was chocking the top end ...i love the 086 on it and it screams ...to me it would make a killer GT motor for under $300 ..light weight and really low profile cooling head w/OS quality

What some of you are failing to see is that you are blaming (ie....the comment "your camp") me for something someone else said ....why? Because someone is my customer? Are you asking me to tell my customers what they can and can't say on a forum?

I do not condone any negative remarks against any person or product, unless I have personally posted said remark. So please, leave me the hell out of it.

If I am going to be labeled a "camp" leader, than please do me a favor and take my website link out of your signatures. Shit, from the sound of it, lf you live in Texas, then I am the leader of your camp also, so please, move to another state. Is there a form I can fill out to not be camp leader anymore, PDF would be best.

When I posted earlier that "this thread hasn't changed, same old bullshit", that was meant for EVERYONE that was being negative, not just certain people. I did not mention any names or products. Yet, someone decided to take a jab at me personally about products I sell on my site, obviously they thought I was talking about them directly. WRONG!

I just kicked the damn record player over, go buy a new record.

I put signatures in my posts cause I like the products. Simple as that, not cause I'm sponsored or endorsed in any way. I don't belong to any camp just cause I know a person. If that's the case then am I in Jeffrey's camp because I know who Juan is? He also lives in Texas? Dang I'll buy a new record player
