Boy I sure do love FREE schwag!!

Apparently, the big-name companies still look out for us "little guys". They also seem to like it when you write them emails not requesting sponsorship, not requesting support, but just praising their product. I wrote such a letter, and got some pretty cool stuff in return.

As many of you already know, when I perform demos or compete I run on Falken FK-452s . . .I cannot speak highly enough about this tire, it's simply amazing. I wrote a moderately long, yet direct, email to Falken letting them know this and in return for the praise and spreading the word about their product, they gave me this . . .


So without further adieu, I present . . .The Arrival of The Schwag!

You should, LOL, at least you get to use the tires, I just scrub them off in a fit of extreme-high-temp-grip. I don't really know what Falken FKs are like on the road . . .sadly . . .I'll find out though and report back.

But yeah dude, write BFG, let them know your use. What I did was write Falken letting them know that I'm not looking for a sponsorship or any support, I just wanted to let them know what I absolutely love their product [Falken FK-452] and wanted them to know that it's possibly the best tire I've ran at any event. I asked them to please not redesign the tire because it's hard to improve upon what this tire is.

HAHA! I also threw in the sidebar of "if they are looking for driver's to test any new tires to give me a call" LOL! I'd do it ^_^

EDIT: S-Chassis is quickly turning into SN-95 chassis, LMAO!

Just wrote one to Vortech Superchargers about the lack of 240 kits. Mentioned that they have a great rep in the mustang world and how much I wish I could bring the fun of a Vortech'd mustang into the 240 chassis. No begging, no "Why the hell do you have this kit??", just a simple "I'm interested in a kit mfor my car but you dont offer it right now, do you have any plans?"

Cant wait to see the reply from that one...."**** off tuner boy...."
