Kind of makes you wonder if it is financial, is our hobby/sport coming to an end? Hope it is for other reasons ratherthan someone else struggling to makes ends meet.

Guys its neither of the reason you guys think.

Talked with him yesterday at trackside practicing for the novak race and he said he had just become to busy. With his real fulltime job and his family. You cant blame someone for wanting to free up more time to spend with his family.


Thanks for always providing great customer service Kraig.

Ditto to that! Kraig was always on the spot with orders... alot of companies would do well to learn a lesson from his customer service! NOW who the eff am i gonna buy tires from?!



Enjoy the free time Kraig...

as wallstreet stated, it is not for the aforementioned reasons....kriag and tammy both have fulltime jobs and 2 boys....they simply felt that it was time to spend more time with the boys.....

Thanks Kraig for all the support over the years....

Matt

They are not the only shop closing. Ace is closing also. They are primarily a nitro shop, but they always came through for me. I never did deal with KT, but I did always hear good words about them.

Kraig,

We're certainly going to miss you and your wife helping us out with items.

However, I certainly understand taking care of your family first.

Hope to see you at a race in the future though.

Just like everybody else, I am really sad to see them go.
They were top notch and my first stop for anything 12th scale.
Good luck and my best to his family.
