    I came away with that conclusion awhile ago.. but was ridiculed for speaking out about it.. Karma..

    I just quoted you for effect.

    Sticky, his pride is probably what broke the company in the first place. The pissing match between ProEFI/Saad and HPF fueled in part by the epic failures of mine and Marcus's cars, pushed him to...

    If I had to guess, the loss of J.P. was the turning point. Once they lost their engineer, they lost their ability to develop new products. They then continued to pour money into marketing a product...

    Chris told me once the majority of the business was from online retail sales. I'd imagine they were just over leveraged.

    :facepalm

    It's not hard to predict cash flows, or conduct risk assesments and manage accordingly. Instead of building the race car, they should have been developing new product since it was...

    I also don't want this thread taken off topic, nor am I going to discuss my car. I have been posting updates on my car on my original thread and that's the only place I'm discussing my car.

    It wasn't as bad as I was expecting given what people had been saying, but it certainly wasn't on par with HPF. I had some new nicks in the paint around the engine bay, the wiring was.. meh.. My...

    You didn't spend $75K on a build with HPF and end up with a POS either.



    Maybe most "peak" HP.. but a dyno queen doesn't make a track star. Their power bands leave a lot to be desired. Their...

    I was probably the first person to actively advocate a smaller turbo for the HPF cars. The first time I drove mine I was not impressed at all with the bottom end. Then of course it started running...

    You talking about Funky? The guy that bashed on me since day one when I had a VF kit (never even met the guy), then he turned around and sold his turd HPF car with a boatload of undisclosed problems...

    lol.. Actually we are developing the system so we can start building large indoor aeroponic farms to grow herbs, leafy greens and micro-greens.

    But yes, it would probably grow some mad bud.

    Should be done in a few weeks according to Jason at Proefi. I was going to put a TH400 auto in the car but ProEFI/Saad took too long (months and months) and I simply lost interest in the car. It's...

    Oh I'm pretty sure he did.. That's the median coming off the entrance into this shops parking lot they are standing in.

    Congratz bud! If anyone deserved it was certainly you.

    How was Mfest btw? I haven't seen much chatter online about it like last year, my impression is it was sort of a dud this year?

    This is true.. It's been pretty frustrating not having a car to back up the words. In the end, it's all about the cars.. the owners are just the side show.
