I think anyone who reads this forum for any length of time, has to respect KP's knowledge and expertise.......Just about any day,you will see him going out of his way to help someone.....who has not, and probably will not, buy anything....(after all, he's helping them fix thier own).

Unparalled customer service.....for people who are not even

He really takes care of, and is genuinely concerned with, the success of, his customers.

What more could a person want??

Personal recomendations?? Ok, here it is.......I bought one, superior product at a fair price......The acceleration was great......very smooth,very crisp. I could really tell a big difference.......

Delivered on time......Rush order....had to race you know.

Good Luck,

My gosh, you guys are TOO nice.... sheesh! LOL!
Snowman, good to hear from ya, you brown-noser, you! LOL!

Guys, I'm always willing to help any racer, that's what keeps me going.

And don't get the impression that I'm some God or something, I mess up too, after all, I'm human. :-) Just gimme the chance to fix what ain't right, we'll do our best.

Thanks for the kind words, all!

Gee, Pay you acompliment on your excellent work and you call me bad names. Haven't decided what to think about that yet.

Well, OK.........Here's you big "chance to fix what ain't right"

Unfortunatly, this story doesn't have a happy ending. Yeah,yeah, the carb was perfect.......maybe too good......accelerated perfect,much faster.....

Knocked down the right front on a big rut......The car pole-vaulted over the right front, and then proceeded to barrow roll down the infield.

Not Fun.

Jambed my thumb and cut my poor little finger.......

Now the only thing different was the carb.......same car, same track,same idiot driver......

As any unreasonable person can clearly see, this is your fault. I never had this problem with my old restrictor plate carb.(which was "professionaly built", Just like Dave's)

Therefore, You owe me a new car and a box of Band-Aids.

Now, I've already built the new car, But what about my box of Band-Aids??

DOH! Wow, snow, sorry to hear that! You know I'm just kiddin' when I harrassed ya a bit there. :-)
You got it, on the BandAids. Would you like Barnie the Dinosaur, or Flintstones? I keep a healthy supply here for the kids. :-)
I'm sure I can dig up "Bob the Builder", too, but ya might have to fight my 3yr old boy for those, he's a BIG "Bob" fan...

Hang in there, man, it gets better!

Thanks again, tho, for the support, and stay away from those ruts!

LMAO.........Actually,I prefer the pink ones with purple polka-dots.

On second thought, Perhaps you should just keep them for the little fella.....I shouldn't need any till next

Good Luck,
