If anyone would like to know more information Pm me. I don't want to jack Marcus's thread

I am surprised to hear that. Martin T. @ Supertech swapped mine out without a hitch. He didn't even question the issue. He was adamant about returning the bad ones however... You guys must have put him through the ringer!

Here is my bad-batch installed vs. the correct ones.





Many thanks again Marcus. Saved me from a rebuild.

Its competition at Shift-S3ctor will likely be the Wiestec AMG cars... and Kenton's car as well as Maverick's widebody. No motorcycles allowed at Shift-S3ctor

Somebody should talk to them. Over here they use to invite one high end literbike for publicity on events like this. Think you could take it down? The s1000rr is the one to beat!
