They donate hundres of dollars to the Toys for Tots races, and other charitable events because not only do they care about the less fortunate, they are dedicated to the hobby 100%.

Chill out guys, you are making fools out of yoursleves.
Your attack on Team Kamikaze is unwarranted, and uncalled for.

And I know two people that run Sirio, and their motors are NOTHING like the ones you can go buy from the hobby shop.
C'MON know why you had to let the secret out

I agree 100% here with brc358. Kamikaze hobbies has done nothing but be 100% supportive to our hobby at every possible angle you can think of. Every race I have ever attended with Team Kamikaze present has been made that much better with them there. They do nothing but help out ANYONE that is at that race. Sam will help you with parts, pitting, engine tuning and anything else without expecting ANYTHING in return. You will actually see Sam running back and forth from the pits more then ANY other racer there for the most part. And he's running to help the average Joe, usually more then one in the same heat. They truly are an asset to our hobby in every aspect!!

If it wasn't for Sam and all of his personal email to me with a hundred questions each time, I don't know if I would have gotten back into the hobby. Sam was the one that helped me out to re-enter the onroad scene after my 4 year break. And he still continues to this day be there for me any time I need help. Hell, he even goes out of his way and brings me a table and canopy to help me out when I travell. So all this bashing on Sam and Team Kamikaze is complete rubish. We all make posts that might be a bit over the top once in awhile, but it's no reason to pass judgment to this extreme. Is everyone here so prideful that they just can't back off and let it go? Are we men that can shake hands and say, sorry man, maybe we all Fu***d-up a little and things went too far. Lets put this crap behind us and move forward. After all we all have one thing in common, and that's our love for our sport/hobby. And Sam has one of the largest passions and amount of knowlege in our hobby. We have enough "Drama" in our lives already, lets not let our stress reliever become a drama issue too. That's just plain silly and a waste of time.

So PLEASE, EVERYONE...stop the bashing. It truly makes you all look childish. There are a LOT of people that count on Sam and Team Kamikaze for help and support on a daily and weekly basis. I know because I am one of them. Remeber that we are all human and do or say things that might be out of context. Shit happens. But for this to escelate to this is idiodic. Lets all just get back to the main reason this thread was posted and put all the "CRAP" behind us. Thank You everyone for understanding.

As far as engines, I will stick to RB or Novarossi. Never ran the others, but I believe you get what you pay for, my opinion. I've never had either of these engines let me down, and when your running in your main, the last thing you want is engine problems. So I stick with what works and don't bother with "experimenting" with the chance of having issues. Plus if my engines are lasting up to 6-9 gallons (piston and sleeve), then I beleive I'm getting my moneys worth. Peace everyone!! And thank you Sam and Team Kamikaze for your never ending support you give me and all the others I see you help!!

Didn't you know that having the fastest car on the straightaway is the most important part of sedan racing?

I coulndt agree more with BRC358 and Serpentd. I deal a lot with Team kamikaze. Heck, if it wasnt for Sam I provably woulndt race half as much as I do, he is always helpfull, always giving pointers. He can find any part I need, when I need it. I've seen him help anybody and everybody at the track, with anything. My engines wouldnt run as good as they do if Sam wasnt tuning them. And i dont know anybody that has anything bad to say about him.

Do you have enough knowlodge about sobject? I never seen on one of your post any real tech (sciantific) info regarding nitro stuff and always was under empression that you are rc product retailer and hobby guy, but no more then that. Correct me if I am wrong please. To make stratment like that you need to be really literate in subject and qualify (proven) in all aspect of hobby, but not only promoting of what you are selling (even if you do it all day long on RCtech). I will be really carefull to call anybody "Idiot" unless I can prove it. This is public forum and everybody is free to talk whatever they want to (except bad wording etc).
Thats the post by EdwardN that started all this BS. He's the one that steered the thread in a different direction He's attacking Sam for no reason, saying he doesnt know enough about engines to be able to tell the difference. And when you're attacked you have to defend yourself. Sam doesnt tell you to run this engine and he runs something else, he runs what he sells.

Who the hell is anybody on this forum to question somebody's integrity amd honesty if he doesnt know that person.

Dude, apperantley not, but I'm learning this now! I will most definately try your way and see what type of speeds I have been missing. I do love to go fast, I think we all do. So I promise, my next race I will give it AL she's got man. Thank you for the advice bro. Now I'm sort of stoked to lean that shit. Thank you there Scott!! If or when we cross paths, I will most certainly hunt you down to make sure I am lean enough bro. SWEET!!! And thanks again for the heads up! I actually mean that in a serious way. I know that might be difficult to distinquish with all this sarcasm. But I will seriously take your advice bro!

Strange....I can't find Edward comments to Sam that "he doesn't know enough about engines." I guess somebody else must have edited or re-phrase some words!

Considering that half of EdwardN's posts have been edited by himself, use your own judgement. I personally read it before all the editing was done. And there was plenty of editing I can assure you.

In Formula 1, 10% less performance, doubles the lifetime of an engine.

So if people are not really good drivers, they get more lifetime of there engine then better drivers.

But still people say that one engine has more lifetime then other, but in fact it is because they can not drive.....

Wow bro, thanks for that encouragment. I think I will lean out my engines so they only last 2-3 gallons so I don't fit in the "I can't drive" catagory.
