How, pray tell, do you expect us to develop parts for race cars without racing?

I was going to offer to PayPal $100 to the moderator who will temp-ban the authors of posts 277 through 293, but...

A) No one took me up on my earlier bribe offers.
B) I have been convinced that NA is best!

No offers received. Now I'm offering temp ban for you unless one bottle of reasonably priced booze makes its way to me soon. Nobody puts baby in a corner.

I think Andrew will be much less confident in criticizing Begi and FM about their old school design and inferior log manifolds going forward. Its probably not anywhere near as easy as it seemed to put together a whole kit that not only outperforms, but also outlasts the competition on track all the while not costing absurd amounts of money, while still making at least some kind of profit margin.

I just hope that this setback/delay isn't forever.

I don't really feel that's a valid criticism. It probably costs a significant amount of money to get a new manifold mold made and a significant number will need to be sold to recoup the investment.

Pretty sure it wasn't actually criticism, more just stating the obvious. I dunno. I dont directly read it as criticism.
