      Funny how launch control and NLS were gimmicks when Matt bought it to med9.
      Now others are using it to make people think the sun shines out of their 4$$.

      Will there be any easy way to purchase these ? As in hit a website, click some boxes, and check out ? The demand is here. Just wondering if we will have to continue to order from UK or what..

      thanks

      Looking forward to hearing back from Jeff

      These seem like the perfect solution to fixing the strut mount issues I have been having

      They are produced here in the UK, so they all ship from here.

      There is only 1 pair remaining here. Jeff has some in transit to him and Double J Motorwerks are holding a few pairs.

      I do not plan on sending any more single pairs from here to the USA, due to the amount of aggravation it caused. If there is enough interest, then large batches will be produced and forwarded to Jeff for distribution.

      Instead of being aggravated, why not just set up a group buy for US distribution in the forums/platforms that are applicable to these mounts. That way you would be able to ascertain the demand and ship a boat load over all at once. Heck, even at $1 off, given the demand for a solution, you'd probably do quite nicely; shucks, there are already over 3,500 views on this thread.

      Matt please understand that all of this is due to the fact that we can't just hit "buy" and type in a credit card number.

      There is a problem, and all of it stems from a lack of information and ambiguity around the ability to purchase them.

      I certainly hope 4 emails was not the "aggravation"? Just set up a link on your site for these. You have to be making money so why not make more $???

      So much this. And it's not like we publicly were demanding complete CAD files with material facts down to molecular structure, all while twisting our mustache and planning to send the info to Chinacorp to have them made for $5. A lot of us just asked what's it made of. "Plastic." OK, what type of plastic? That alone would have given us an estimation of what kind of durometer to expect, so we're not trying to guess whether it is Ziploc baggie plastic or Delrin.

      And not that anyone is even remotely accusing you guys of this, but sometimes advertiser's claims of superiority of their product don't live up to individual expectation. ESPECIALLY when they're ambiguous about details. Your definition of "hard" could mean "half-frozen soup" to me. Look at 034's "Track Density" mounts, for our cars at least. Some feel awesome by hand, but then feel like a bag of foreskins once installed.

      'Right now' Putting up an 'instant' method of purchase will create more problems than it solves...

      We are in production of these, but I do not want to take orders for parts I cannot ship.

      Call Joe Marstall over at Double J Motorwerks in Portland, OR.
      He has few sets (in hand).

      Then can you please put up a picture of the mount, the price, and some quick details on your site saying your making them? That way you stop having to field crap emails.

      You can obviously use your pc....why not use it and look in the pictures in the thread? Then if you like the look of them, pick up the phone and call the chap Jeff has suggested in his post for a price?

      UM, on the site has made it very clear to just shoot them an email, etc. Why is everyone getting annoyed about not having a button to click, convenience? these guys are dealing with you all directly, so IMO thats a convenience in itself.

      I had mine installed with my new PSS9's. Can't really see what effect they have but excited I won't have to worry much about the mounts collapsing.
