I agree completely. I like mine.

I wonder if there was a sufficient group order it would be worthwhile for him to tool up and make a bunch? He could fill all the group orders and put a few more in inventory, then shut down again.

what a pity

Been flying mine since about 1 1/2 year and am very happy with the product: look great, are light and aerodynamic, and give full deflection either side
Life's short... Enjoy

I read VAF a lot and had never heard of these, I bet it is a function of people not knowing about them.

Anyone have pics?

I might be interested for the -8, something between the stock chains / springs and the more "direct" connect options sounds great.

I'll add my name to a list of folks who would buy a set as part of group buy, if that helps bring them back!

A friend of mine has them on his RV-8 , and they are really slick!

I have an email out to Brent to see if he would be interested in a one time production run asking how many he would need to make and at what price.
Its possible we could do a group buy if there is enough interest.
I'll keep you posted.
