my question would be how could you give up on a car before it's even released?

Since it isn't even out yet, how do you make that decision?

Well that settles it, nobody runs the BD yet, even at all those tracks you visited, I guess it's just not good enough for you. Why don't you go over to the RDX thread and enjoy.

I'm half tempted to go to the RDX thread. It won mod touring at the roar on road nationals. It's definately faster than than BD. I didn't see a single BD in the main.

It's probably time to let that poor guy off the hook who went out and bought an RDX. I really like the RDX but it makes more sense for me to purchase the BD since I have spare parts already. I just hope it lives up to the hype we've been giving it. Spending $400+ on a touring car is a big decision, one I don't want to be disappointed in. The RDX has proven itself, the BD has not proven itself yet. In fact, beyond a few comments here and there from Matt Howard about how Masami feels about the car we have nothing. It's hard to tell how good it corners or accelerates from a few photos. I'm going on my experience with yokomo's, there built great and are capable of winning races; the BD should not be an exception to that rule. I bet when it does finally hit the shelves it will be like all new touring cars; better than everything else. When the newness wears off; a new faster car will come along and everybody will go buy it.
