Default group buy

First I'd like to thank Keith for putting this group buy up on flyinmiata.net.

Everyone that said they are "in" on this needs to go ahead and purchase. Why?

1) I wanted a prop valve. So I personally called FM to try and get a group by together. It makes me look bad when I say peole are interested and then nobody steps up.

2) The last group buy for this item didn't go very well because half the people who said they were "in" Didn't step up and buy one.

3) True to my word, I said I was going to wait until that evening to see if a group buy appeared. IF it didn't then I was going to buy my prop valve. I bought my prop valve, and didn't even get in on my own group buy plan.

So, It would make me feel better if a lot of people got this deal since I did not. My valve is still in transit.

Hmm, Keith, if I got in on this, any chance it would make it to my home (Chicago) by the 9-10th of June? Thanks.

Since your 1993 does not have the Sport brakes, it'll work. It's only cars that have both the Sport brakes and ABS - ie, any 2003-05 with ABS and a number of the 2001-02 models - that don't work.

djp0623, email me your order number. I'll add you in retroactively.

FRT_Fun, it's four business days to ship from here to Chicago. So if we ship your valve out on the 2nd, it should arrive on the 8th. If we run out of stock, we always ship the first orders we received first - so if you're worried about timeframe, it's better to sign up early.

Glad to see this happening again, hopefully you guys get ten people. Should be east with the mtuned kits out now. I started the last gb for the valve and it failed. The gb center is a pretty great way to make the gb process pretty painless and efficient.
We did free shipping in the lower 48 last time I think.

and a pretty good deal on shipping those bad boys abroad (just curious, who else actually followed up on the last GB besides me?)

Last I checked there was 18 people! Kinda crushed the 10 needed. I debated going in on it, but after I saw there was more than 10 people already, I decided against it. Spent it on the LSD instead.
