Default Why is no one using the Track Dog Racing rotrex kit?

I really want to go with a rotrex setup and on paper the kit from Track Dog Racing looks really good. But, searching online it's like i can't find a single person that uses it much less drives it at HPDE's / races. Anyone here have any firsthand experience they can share?

Because torque gives us boners. Rotrex doesn't do that.

Constructive post. A+ troll.

Edit: The turbo circle jerk in this forum, even in the SUPERCHARGER sub, is ridiculous.

Bummer.

Maybe try http://www.miatasupercharger.net

Ok but really i like Rotrex, and there's been some mentions in passing about this kit on here, but i don't know of anyone here actually running it besides William at TDR himself. I'm sure he loves it. I'm also sure, from interacting with him on the internet and from having the extreme displeasure of touching a car that he's worked on, that he doesn't know a damn thing about cars.

Can you point out to me what part of his post is bad, or trolling?
I'm just curious, because I genuinely don't see why you're so pissy.
If you come in here so defensive that you go full circle and get offensive, it's not going to be a productive thread.

No, it points specifically to the Kraftwerks stuff he sells.

Pretty smart if you ask me. Supercharger owners get all emotional, open his site, start impulse buying the frustration away. He laughs all the way to the bank

Because he purposely clicked on a rotrex related thread just to come in here and **** on it with his inferiority complex with no information of value to add. I understand how superchargers work - that wasn't my question. I don't want a "... no torque bro" circle jerk.

How you cannot see that as a moderator is comical.

You're taking this way more seriously than everyone else is. It'll be ok. Someone who has hands on experience with this kit might show up. Or they might not. In the meantime, a little lighthearted fun isn't the end of the world.

I promise you'll be fine.

Thanks for the only constructive post in here. A little bit of a bummer to hear but i'm not terribly surprised. I'll be using the car primarily as a track-only car and i've heard some issues with the KW kit and supporting components not being the best. Maybe i'll have to go the same route Blackbird is and make my own kit.

This is not M.net, the supercharger forum is not a safe space. There are plenty of supercharger people here. A few of the craziest builds on this forum involve superchargers, in fact. They get ribbed all the time, and they take it in stride and contribute to the community anyway. I would strongly advise that you learn to take said ribbing in stride if you expect to prosper here.

Or maybe you're a sensitive little nancy on her period who screams bloody murder at factual posts made with no intention of superiority complex, and expect a moderator to see everything your way, and to defend this childish behavior.

Its because all of the common supercharger kits people run on miatas are absolutely useless limp wristed **** compared to a sorted turbo package which is so common here. Not to say theres no sweet blown miatas, but no noobs come here asking intelligent questions to help build one. Its always 'I want to be different' or some similar rubbish.

Sorry but thats the truth.
