Hey Tom.
Interesting reading. I'm certainly not going to address the technical {cause I'm not knowledgeable in the arts}, but the common thread I see is Randy jumping to attack the guy on a personal level rather than talking specific details of the subject matter. Then the usual mob mentality begins and the attack drones come out to further confuse the issues and take the subject off topic.
BUT I was glad to see that a challenge was issued and hope it would actually take place. The biggest surprise is that the thread wasn't immediately deleted cause someone used your name...
P.S. It's just business as usual at the forum....

I concur apparently Randy cannot converse on sort of normal plain. I would like to see this challenge happen maybe they can both learn from each other and make a better Focus Aftermarket. I think that is probably wishful thinking. I have an pretty good knowledge of cars as that is what I studied in College and working with them is what I do for a living. But I had no idea that a wideband was not as big of a part as I once thought. There is a few more wrinkles for the old brain.

Home many people on this Board really get tunes from Randy or FS I wonder.....Seems like you and Wayne were where everyone on this board that bought tunes and talked about it would go.

A duel would be pointless , what would it prove ? More of randys unwillingness to be openminded and maybe learn something from someone that has been tuning before the first Focus was ever built

Keep in mind that just a few years ago he was selling the over the counter preprogramed chips and thought they were the best thing for tuning sence a ECU came out , then when SCT came out he was telling these same customers how big a piece of crap they were and how they should spend more money and buy his new stuff , Its a money thing and it shouldnt be when it comes to tuning , Im allways open to new ideas and trying new tuning ideas

When I first bought my Xcal2, I talked to him to get it unlocked and a tune....he was pretty full of himself and whatta royal pain in the ass too...they wont email you a tune....have to pass that tuner back and forth in the mail each time.

anyways, funny to read...I see the vibe I got off the phone wasnt too far from the truth.

No one tuner can make a change that another tuner cannot make with the same software and fs doesent have anything Diff from me or McNews or anyother SCT tuner/dealer

So why he does that is beyond me
