How are them Huskers looking?WOW! I go to the Husker Spring Game this afternoon (72,995 attendance for the final spring practice) and come back to the forum to find that all hell has broken loose and the feces hits the rotating airfoil!
It's not just that he doesn't pay vendor fees, it's also his choice to sneak around the forums backs, and sell via PM's(unfortunately with help many times) circumventing the very rules that EVERY forum member agrees to abide by when they join.My son's '94 has a 4 position Buddy tune. It works great. He can do up to 6 position tunes. As THEFERMANATOR noted, these forums have issues with him not paying vendor fees.
It was Offense vs. Defense, 1's against 1's, 2's vs. 2's on down the line with a little bit of subbing. 20 minute quarters, clock running except for out of bounds or time outs. In addition to normal scoring, there were points awarded for things like gains over 20 yards, 3 and out by the Defense, converting or stopping a 4th down, intercepting a pass, holding the offense inside their own 40 yard line, having more than three 1st downs in a drive, etc. It was a little different, but kept the score close. The game was decided on the last play of the day. Starting the 4th Quarter the Red (Offense) was leading the White 41-30. White won the game 46-41 on a 4th down interception (6 points for the D) plus a point each for holding them on 3rd down and stopping the 4th down for the D.How are them Huskers looking?
I fell asleep watching the final USC scrimmage on PAC 12 Network. Not really a scrimmage at all.
Most excited about Utah. Their DL is looking to be the best in the PAC 12 and is downright nasty in the best of Utah defensive tradition. Utah finally has some QBs who can sling the ball, so next year should be another top 25 team and possible contender for the PAC 12 South.
Jim, IIRC the EGT's were down some and the performance was up. It's been over a year since I had Wester's chip in. Lyden's chip was pretty good but I hated TTC lockup at 30 mph, especially with a 9400 lb truck.How did it compare to a tune from Lyndon, Leo? I forgot to put him in the list, and most of these guys use his def files
I bought the tuner from Buddy before the whole Forum thing blew up, so I was not aware of it. At the time, it was the only multi position tune out there, so we gave it a try. It was bought for a '95 Suburban K2500, which ended up totaled in a rollover accident. First thing retrieved from the wreck was the ECM and the tuner. It is now on a '94 Suburban K2500 and works great. Just relaying that experience because the OP asked for anyone having experience with the Buddy tune. I understand this Forum's issues with his marketing tactics, but that had nothing to do with his product and how it worked.Because it costs me money out of my pocket to run this place. Simple as that.
I liked Buddy in the beginning, he was always helpful to other members. I got one of his first multi tune (prototype).
He sold it to me for $425! IIRC. I remember thinking Wow thats full retail. It really hit me the wrong way when later I found out he was selling supposedly at the "hobby" price of $50 not making a profit but doing it for a hobby.
So what did you guys pay for yours?
Wasn't there a "Buddy fund" to pay for his vendor status too! Where did that money go?
I did not call you names, I think I was pretty respectful in my reply. Why so defensive?HA! LEROY! We traded products, you never "paid" me a dime. So who is the jerk? What do YOU make on your products, the markup that you charge me in that transaction? I traded you for retail price straight up. AND you have the gall to charge $399 for a tune that would take someone 15 minutes of work and then bitch about $425 for a custom chip I spend many hours to design custom PCBs, sourcing parts, and tuning 3 or more tunes. I personally spent hours soldering it togethers, how much time did you spend shipping stuff? So there you have it, $399 for one tune from Leroy and he bitches about $425 for a custom piece with multiple tunes. THAT about sums up the story. And Theferminator is the slimiest person I think I know, would never trust his opinion, completely biased. I never copied anyone's tunes, period, and this comes from the guy using pirated software to look at mine, Heaths and others tuning to make his own.
I wasn't a moderator here during the 1st blow up, but from what was posted in open forum showed the board did EVERYTHING possible to work with him. The final straw was his unwillingness to become a vendor, so he took to PM's to sell his products with the help of others that also did PM's of email address's and such. If that isn't as underhand as you can get to skirt what is probably some of the most reasoneable vendor fees out there(that also gets you exposure on google and some other search features), then I don't know what is. I know several like his products, but I can't support somebody who thinks he's owed everything for free, and then has the nerve to demand others cater to him. This board is here for the memebrs to help each other, and the rules are pretty fair IMHO. And even AFTER his 1st dustup, he wasn't run off, just had his PM's taken away(hence why he got others to do the PM'ing for him), yet everytime he comes back it ALWAYS erupts into a blow up.I did not call you names, I think I was pretty respectful in my reply. Why so defensive?
You are correct I remember now (its been a few years now) we did trade parts at a $425 value. I sent you $425 worth of parts, so yeah that didn't cost me anything right? NOT. You by far came out better in the deal, but thats OK I agreed to it.
I don't claim to be a "hobby", my costs for a tune are higher than yours but I still charge less than you.
Members here were willing to pay YOUR supporting vendor fees!! REALLY! and you still whine. I was even willing at the time to take you under my belt, so to speak. Anyone want to pay for my fees this year? There not much, but hey it would be a nice gesture. I won't even demand the forum change for me.
( I could say at this point "so who's the jerk" but I won't).
Im not privy to all the back room dealings you had with the forum, but the more that comes out does not make you look any better now.
@Tim3596 what transmission do you have, and how big of trailers? How long of pull?No I'm not a coal roller I just wanna get all the power out of my truck I am always pulling big trailers but my truck is a 94 Chevy 3500 6.5 turbo
