Why don't you get a complete kit instead of the chassis only?......

I have ever think about to produce a 5port eco on-road engine long time ago. The retail price can be low to $200. But as my observation on here,if we sell a engine like that,all the feedback that we get will be...(1)damnit! it is not as fast as JP,I'm waste my money. (2) see,SxS can only produce the crap....etc. something like that. We can sell a mod engines at the stock price range. It is as fast as other mod engines you have ever seen. Why we need to produce a stock engine?

Why not call it ECO class?

If anyone has a problem in the direction this class is going SIMPLY DON'T RACE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!...... maybe it's not for, if so that's ok but don't slam it because you don't agree, state your reasons and simply move on.
Hey Robbie.
I got the point, I just try to figure out what will be createria for SPEC motors.
I am wondering how my engines will be tech? (my own PR12, not moded brand) ( in case if spec class will be for 10th scale too). I need to know so I will be able to produce SPEC motors.
Now, you mentioned about disclimer fee $300-it doesn't sound like to cut the cost.
I am sure you will clear all my question easy.
Thanks
Edward

Don't worry Ed they are talking about 1/8 on-road only. Yeah~$300 still not cut the cost a lot. The price range should be under $200 then I can sell a engine at $199.

if you want cheap, then get a force 21 on road but if you want high perfomance pay extra becuase i doubt that prices will drop.

I bet the prices would drop if they saw a dramatic decrease in sales of those $600+ motors... I don't think teching all the motors before the race is really needed. How bout just tech the guy who seems to be breaking the laws of physics for that motor... If somebody seems to be Leaving the Pack down the straight section, then people will probably notice, something's up.

One thing I don't understand, why people are so opposed to the idea. If you're not interested in the class, great, shut up. We need suggestions to make it happen, not verbal diahrea in broken english(no offense, it's just difficult to understand) about how you don't want to slow down. We've stated and restated it's not about speed, it's about $$$!!! That's what keeps most guys from trying it out. You just cannot justify to some newb that he needs almost 2 grand to get in on the action...
