    Default Horn not playing fair !

    Watching Volusia at my neighbors and he has a truck full of new Hoosier tires that he is taking south for a team. We got to talking about all the horns out there this year. His reply was horn is cutting deals for guys, I asked him to explain and his reply was the guys at rocket have it right on there Web site what a chassis will cost. Go look at horns site and all it says is call us. Makes one wonder is all. Triple xxx did it with sprint car chassis and took a lot of business from other manufacturers.

    Nothing wrong w that. Post your price so someone can cut it and get your sale. Sounds like smart business to me.

    Rocket has tier pricing for all their customers.

    Longhorn is not giving cars away, their prices have went through the roof since new ownership took over two years ago. As they should, they build a good product and you gotta pay to play

    Well I was only making comment on someone that is involved in the game. He and his son have a crate car they play with on occassion and he does motor rebuilds for both slm and crates. The one thing he and I both agree on is if it doesn't soon stop more teams will be lost. They had I believe 56 cars in Volusia, just how many of those 56 had a chance to finish top 10. My neighbor said 13, I laughed but after thinking about it I went with 15. We did agree on 1 thing, most every racer in florida for speedweeks is losing money. We both thought the purses in florida are terrible, there should not be a 5000 to win show when you have a back gate that is as big as some are pulling in.

    In fairness to Volusia, locals dont support it very well! Weather was bad for this time of year, but until the Yanks show up, purses will be low!

    Some gear to win, most gear to keep racing. Volusia is a hammer down track, I wonder how many had to swap bullets.

    An engine lapped out 1 race into the season. That's a head scratcher 🤔

    Triple XXX builds their frames in China, thats how they sell so much cheaper... I think some people see conspiracy where they want to. With inflation running hot I imagine prices are constantly in flux. I'm no Longhorn fan, but I imagine winning races and championships while also not being a world class horse's caboose helps sell cars as well. Hard to beat customer service.

    Henry I have to agree with your customer service comment. Not sure who it was but they made the comment about having issues at volusia. He mentioned Rumley and Arpin among others came over to his pit to help him out. On a race day that is impressive.

    Deals are nothing new. It's just that it was always a public price and other people got one for a lower price.

    Considering all the preseason testing that goes on now it's not. Pretty sure most of the top teams have already pounded lots of laps at G.I., East Bay, and Volusia.

    So Longhorn is doing what Rocket has done for decades. Ensure that the best teams are in their product. No one cared when Rocket did it but now its a problem when Longhorn does it. (full disclosure, I think its bad having 2 brands dominate the sport)

    I think this may be in the running for dumbest post of the year so far on 4M. Rockets prices on their website are probably a rough estimate, longhornís puts call for pricing on theirs, the price of steel and aluminum changes on a daily and weekly basis and every manufacturer out there has to constantly change prices on items. Itís not just race cars itís everything. Everyone on here wants love on Longhorn and hate on Rocket every chance they get. I donít choose a side between the two but Iíd love to see Mark Richards hire Kevin Rumley out from underneath Longhorn just to see the meltdown on 4M!
