ianc, I beg to disagree with your statement. Market acceptance is a weird phenomenon. I would consider it a group-dynamic thing. Especially, nowadays with the internet it does not take much to tip the scale one way or the other and once a collective opinion is formed it is very difficult to change that. Followers are everywhere and things only solidify with time. Once you are in the collective “dog-house” it is much more difficult to revert this status.

I see asking for this sort of information more like throwing a bone. In the end I’ll figure it out anyway. In this example with some digging I finally found one of the original designers of the Motronic back in Germany. It helps that I speak the language.

It’s pathetic that certain individuals “sit” on information that they themselves have obtained somewhere while at the same time mocking others for not knowing. How f.cked up is that.

I’d like to mention individuals such as like Steve Wong, John Walker, Steve@Rennsport as well as many others in the business as very different examples. They are very open and forthcoming with information. And this by all means has increased their business rather than taken away from it I would figure.

Cheers,
Ingo
