Caution on Sierra Composites...,we had a pretty bad experience on some custom setup boards for our 1/5th scales. The edge of one of our board was completely F-up must have jumped while on the table saw. And they would not return any of my messages or e-mails, they are an unlisted company in a residential neighborhood. And at over $400 ea for the setup boards, they should have been perfect But Sierra continued to say that the board was fine… I sent digital photos with the damaged board next to the other two and was very cool to start with……. . I final got a small credit back through robot combat, (they are the store front for Sierra).

BUT the guy at Sierra IS A CROOK and an A-hole......................

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...
