Not one person told me if they were the ones that did this and not one person said if they thought it was funny but I did find it funny.

someone emailed me this and I never did find out who it was.

but they put me in there with some good company!


Must have been a AE Driver or Cyclone Driver

ok I will take them down!

Well when I went to the track a weekago it looked as if all the cars there were running foams and running a thick wide top deck so Tonight I will finish or try to the prototype top deck like that for our cars!

I will try a 2piece top deck like that as well thinking for onroad asphalt just remove the posts and it should work as well as our other upper deck but we will know when you are done testing it

Plus I have been Simi Retired for the last year but Now Monday I am going back to work full time

Default listening to all ideas about improvements

Marty,
I design and sell commercial software for a living. What I am sure you already know is that ideas are a dime a dozen, suggestions are cheaper. We have received hundreds of suggestions for improvements and new features, and continue to receive them. Suggestions are great, buy you can only sell a finished product. No one will buy an idea that keeps changing. Do the best you can with what you have and see how marketable it is. Once you begin to sell it, some of the profits can be used to finance improvements. It seems that your f1 cars are selling, so you obviously know what you are doing, and are good at it. That knowledge should be enough to give you confidence in your product. The touring car market is full of every kind of idea, so there is room for 1 more.

In terms of suggestions: With our software, the people who suggest the most changes, saying- "if only it had that, I would buy it":
1) almost never purchase anything and are tire kickers
2) are never happy with the changes
3) if they do purchase, they feel they can suggest/demand new changes based on their whims.

You will get a lot more respect and orders by sticking to your guns and releasing a car that you feel is ready, not 1 that 51% of poll respondents feel is ready.

I admire what you are doing and wish you the best.

I think you are taking this wrong. Marty is designing a touring car. What he is doing, which other companies don't, is showing all the progress and changes during the design process. We use this fourm to commuicate,share and get ideas.
