The votes pulled from those threads are the only threads making him win. And those threads weren't "hey come check out or comp and vote", it was. "hey, come vote for Max" and people would blindly do it, people that would not have known this thread existed..

But I guess whoever wanted to win should have just had everyone they know and their mom sign up for a new account and vote!! You guys know thats not what this contest was about..


http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum....php?t=1299156 <<-- 30+ votes (most new members) and before he edited every one of his posts..

http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=702549 <<-- 14+ votes (your thread)

http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/showt...light=giveaway <-- Couple there


Haven't found any other threads from the other participants though! weird..
Look harder...there are other people who made the same links...this is after all a COMPETITION...and yes, I am biased otherwise I would not have voted...

There is one singularity here...you and Wow are the only ones really making a point of *****ing about this and the rest of us, including myself, support ALL the guys going for this BBK. They all have amazing cars and are really cool people...do you see them complaining? no...they are doing what they love...modding the car and doing what they can to do so. I did notice one thing in the threads created by Max which you didn't post up...

"But only vote for me if you feel like I deserve it.
If you want someone else to have it, then by all means vote for them."

You obviously didn't see all those threads before he edited them!..

Theres only a couple reasons he would go back and edit them once he saw all this, one being to cover his tracks because he knows it wasn't such a good move.

geez for a thread that was supposed to be positive, some people sure do know how to sh*t on it.....



Guess what stanc3, I voted for Max

If you have a problem with the threads Max made, you must also have a problem with some of the other people who also made threads on other forums asking for votes. I can link them, but don't want to wreck this thread anymore than it already has been.
Even if he posted up on say bf.c and asked for votes in OT, that doesn't mean all those people are going to vote for him, they might just go on and see a car they like better and vote for that one.

All in all, this type of stuff shouldn't be polluting this thread, WP was nice enough to do this and i think its awesome that they're doing it. All cars are deserving of this.

If threads are made on other forums linking to this thread, I'd have to say it helps out WP since more people see their name.

If you don't have anything nice to say, leave the thread alone!

Um, sorry for havn't had the time to come and check up on regular basis, and its unfortunate that there are people who are upset the way things are going in this contest, if you feel like talking to me directly, please send me an email.

Regarding those that think WP Pro is sub-standard, please keep in mind that we've been in this business for almost 30 yrs, we've produced for many well known companies.

Even know we did not sell under our own brand of WP Pro in North America until 2002, our products were sold under as HP Racing since the 90's, we've produced for Hamann, Oettinger, BSR, Volkswagen racing etc.

Regarding technical questions, they'd have to be more specific so I can provide the right answers, we road-test every single off-shelf applications to make sure they will work with OEM MC's.

Quote:
pictures of them on the track are meaningless. they are great looking without a doubt. but are they functional besides just looking good? I said what I said because I saw some contestants track/autox their car. If I want a BBK i would want something proven for tracking/autox. If i wanted a show car these would look dope on them
We don't produce brakes for "Dope bling" factor, we produce brakes for safety, we KNOW which companies are cutting corners to maximize their profit, we know what can be made better, because we used to make it for them.

Here's one for our racing research, we produce brakes for Volkswagen Racing UK, http://www.volkswagenracing.co.uk/, and all the race cars they currently race are running the same brakes that you can buy from us.

We also developed new 4 piston calipers for the Yaris race car for Team Cooper Tires for the China Touring Car Championship.









We've also developed a system for the Skoda Fabia (IIRC its the Super 1600 class) rally car.







We've had built calipers for the FIA GT2 class (which our new L8 is based on)




We've had privateer team racing in the Dutch Touring Car

I was vote #1 and I voted for Max. The emails and 'get out the vote' stuff has nothing to do with it for most of us, the only people that are butt hurt about it are people who wanted Jun to win and feel wronged that he didn't. Jun was a close second for me, Max was #1 because A.) he's on my local Eurowerkz chapter, B.) his car is super clean and nice, but is just missing a BBK to make it AMAZING, and C.) Jun's car doesn't need anything else because it's already super nice.. insane Works, Hartge lip, Interlagos, etc. etc.

That was my logic anyway..
