Bill, how do you expect any other hobby shop to jump on board and promote this class when you are giving Superior an exclusive deal?! Nothing against Superior but you have to look out for ALL the hobby shops that promote the series.

I also agree with Pete on this. Nothing at all against Superior, but if you are looking to promote a new class, all the shops that are willing to help promote it, should get the same deal.

Make a map price, so everyone sells it for the same price.

Doesnt sound like a fair deal to me either . Other that have supported racing in Fl are left out in the cold . It one thing for club to have handout motors and things like that , but for only one store to get special deals is wrong , i will be Emailing Charlie at Novak to explain why i will start selling the LRP system instead of theirs .

Last time I looked, my LOCAL hobby shop carreid Novak electronics. What happened to all number one RC saying, SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL HOBBY SHOP.

Hard to due when only one shop over a hour away gets the "special deal".

Also with PNP being the ON Site shop for the regionals, why should they bother if business is being pawned off in another direction. Thats a drive to pull a trailer, set up shop, pay extra employees just to say "Oh go there, they have the special price!"

Just my .02 cents as well.

People,

Leadership at FSEARA understand and know the shops that support the series. Bill has been working on a deal to help further this class, and help the RACERS that RACE FSEARA get a better deal on the equipment. I have expressed my concern to Bill about using one specific shop, and the discussion has been taken into consideration. I have a couple points.

1. The deal Bill is workgin on, not one penny will go to the shop, the shop is just workgin as a place for the racers to buy the system.
2. Bill has ties to Superior and it was easiest to work with them, from his perspective.. but this IN NO WAY , has any bearing on how FSEARA feels has shown support.
3. FSEARA officials have not been involved in this specific deal.
4. Even though FSEARA has not been involved in this deal,No matter what is posted, nothing is a done deal yet.


If people have questions about the series, please call Izzy or myslf, as we are the officers.

Bill I'm in but I think this may not be the best way to market it.

Are we talking brushless/Lipo or just brushless?
