This disgusts me. I mean, I know money is good and sponsors are good but I can't believe you'd accept business from these lowlife spammer scumbags. I disapprove vehemently, as do a few OG important members whose opinions I value.

First off I would appreciate at least some public support, or at least silence.

http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=124024

Flame away in here but I think that it isn't too much to ask that publicly everyone is at least mure on the point if they don't agree?

I would also question what the problem is. Federico sold he name to electrodyne. Electrodyne was selling RD Sport parts that RD Sport was selling.

At some point who cares? They are sponsors, you don't have to buy from them....just enjoy the fact that they are paying to keep the forum running. Actually by taking their money and not buying stuff from them you are sort of ****ing them, so enjoy that!

I honestly do not know what to say. Everyone has all sorts of opinions about the whole saga between the two but when it all comes down to it there isn't that big of a saga. ****, "RDSport" sells products that Electrodyne aka Racing Dynamics make. There is this big front put on but they are no worse than RDSport themselves from what I can tell.

I'm sorry if you don't approve of them being on board but being as though quite a few sponsors contracts have expired and not been renewed things are starting to look bleak. We want to keep the site up and running and I certainly can't afford to pay the $2k a month or so it takes to run the site...and I know no one else wants to give up $$ to do it....

Electrodyne doesn't make the real RD's stuff. There is no working relationship there. Electrodyne did buy the name but they sell inferior crap and are getting rich off the hard work of another, even though he offered to give them much more money back to get his rightful name back. His mistake, yes, but they've been total asses about it.

That's business though, what bugs me more is that they are a spamming whore of a company.

I am not going to argue with you but according to the owner of electrodyne and others that I have talked to Electrodyne sold "their products" to RD Sport.

What are you basing that on Dave? What Federico told you? I have talked to him at length about this before as well and there is always two sides to ever story. It seems a bit far fetched that Electrodyne would go around telling everyone that they were selling RD Sport (and actually RD in Germany and Italy as well) products if they were not, don't you think? This wasn't a short story either, it was long with a lot of details.

Anyways I don't care, you don't have to buy from them because they are a sponsor, neither does anyone else. Why aren't you jumping up in arms about Warranty Gold screwing members, or bimmian, or who ever else :rolleyes:

because I don't pay attention to their stupid angel eyes wars on general principle :)

Regardless of what Electrodyne says, I am inclined to believe Federico et al about the situation. Regardless of fault, he's bitter and angry about it and that alone would preclude him from making deals with them. Not to mention I and many others have been to the RDSport factory in Fountain Valley and can see that they produce their own stuff, and very well, and don't need the outside help.

That's neither here nor there. I don't like them, but whatever, I see your point. I posted the "just don't buy from them and they're losing money" thing to calm ant and others down.
