    Bet those who bought during the February sale thought they were getting a good deal.

    They were, and did.

    After all, vF isn't available yet and at the time, it wasn't going to be readily available either.

    I picked mine up during his black friday sale...i think it was 640 after taxes or something like that. It is what it is, ive been telling everyone i know about his current price...wish i could have scored a deal like that lol. But im happy with what i got for how much i got it for.

    The only reason it is that price to clear the little inventory we have left. It's not remaining at this price. I have 15 left.

    vF isn't going to be available for a while

    Everyone who has bought it in the last year or so has gotten a good deal. The kit was $770 + shipping way back when when I bought it haha.

    Anyone who isnt already aware of the situations that led to this, and want to try and be salty can go in the corner and sod off. Im certainly not moaning, and i know you have to be less than thrilled about a total operation change with 100 other things going down.

    The chain of events leading up to right now is just crazy. First, hardware supply chain issues, software update issues (italy), Supply chain backlog, CoronaVirus shelter in place orders, Kids school closed for the rest of the year, 80+% sharp decline in sales, my wife's job, who she works for a company in California, has put her on a temporary hold / no work for weeks or longer... (and my daughter goes to a local private school so even with school cancellation, tuition doesn't stop). This isn't going to stop us, it's just changing some things.

    All of this pushed our time line to transition to our new software we have been working on for the last 2+ years.

    100% understandable, it is going to be hard for everyone eventually. Some are definitely feeling the effects sooner and harsher, ive been running 2.0 final since it dropped so all im awaiting is F.I. and im in no position to buy right now with the wife no longer working. This is quite the cluster we're in, working here with multiple suppliers from all over the globe....its not looking good and im in the steel industry, the supply chain is bound to be stressed and thats not good at all.

    all the stories are just nuts. I'm saddled with private school as well, eesh. at least you can count on all the MT guys and a ton of ATs purchasing a vF license from you. that's a deal, too, thanks. kinda can't wait for this already. :thumbsup:

    Ill be buying even if just for future options,support the community or watch it dry up and fizzle away. Had it been more reasonable to tune my xrunner back when i had it, i may have kept it lol. It needed more and i wasnt trying to drop a pile of cash on something that at the time, had very little support for it.....short of ls swapping it and thats just....no

    A lot of user probably don't know as they don't actively follow the develoment thread, but us transitioning from tunes to tuning software has been in the works for well over a year. It has been planned, even before all of these events. These events just pushed it to the top. As I expect and posted a while ago, if the 3.5 goes the same route as the 4.0 did with tuning, when HP Tuners releases for it, our tunes will pretty much die off anyway. So we are pushing to get our software to the front line, so we can continue to support this community with the best options possible.

    Theres a local speed shop that tunes on a rolling highway, and unless he can manage to unlock some substantial additional hidden power if/when HP offers support, ill just stick with OV. Something alot of people dont realize is the cost of personal tunes, writing files and testing said files are 80-100 an hour plus the key fee from HP. I let him test on my mustang (coyote was new at the time) and got a discount and it still ran me 380 bones.

    I'd stick with OVTune over others.

    If the sales would hit when I have money.... :bananadead:

    So mad right now. Tried to order a flash kit finally. They sold out at the exact moment I'm about to purchase it. Beyond pissed off. Been waiting on this for months, finally able to get it while on sale. Told the wife, tried to buy, sold out literally the moment I'm trying to buy it. I give up.

    Unbelievable.

    That's the end of my rant.

    (Edited because I'm way more angry about this than I should be.)

    Hey Matt , if you have an order cancellation or if anybody wants to sell there flash kit let me know ...I was the same deal ... Emailed the zendesk on ordering @ 1032 am and didn't check the forums or Facebook and sold out 15 kits in an few hours .... Damn lol . Either way if something better is to come I can wait .... Thanks for all you do and good luck with the Future endeavors!
