lutach,

With all due respect and kindness, if you'd like to talk about your product, do as we did and start a thread about it please.

Schumacher policy (and I beleive the policy of the boards here as well) is we don't talk about our competing products within other companies' threads, and I'd appreciate it if you'd give us the same courtesy here.

Thanks,

The GT is also the first to INCLUDE a hand held pocket size programming box for easy trackside adjustments with each ESC!

Overall: 44mm x 36mm x 18.5mm
Weight: 39g (no wires)

With all due respect this thread wasn't started by you Shawn. You should make a thread talking about your product. You have nothing to worry about as most people don't know where most of the products come from and they thrust Schumacher, but how can you have your policy work here. I work with a few manufacturers as I am a distributor of electronic components and when people thought Speed Passion was a manufacture I had to say something. I'm sorry if you feel like this, but feel free to start another thread talking about Speed Passion and I won't go there.

Shawn,

So please explain why are people here in this thread http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthre...08#post4063408 talking about Speed Passion? Even your own Adam Bailey is there. Does he know about Schumacher's policy?

As for your thread, Mr Bailey was harshly informed of our policy, and instructed to remove his comments immediately upon their discovery last week. I appologize for his ignorance of the policy at that time, but rest assured he's well versed in what's appropriate and what is not at this time.

Thank you for understanding. Sorry if I have caused any inconvenience. I still think the $199 price is high as Nexus has them for $185.

As a Manufacturer and USA distributor, we don't compete with our dealers. Very standard practice actually.

We will allways be at full retail, and the dealers will allways be a bit cheaper to buy from, as they are purposely set up for retail business and we are set up to buy and sell in wholesale/distribution quantities to supply them.
