gude=VERY low quality, ive heard some pretty bad horror stories with the gude kit and detonation. the guy that makes the kit has his onw site.....www.gudeperformance.com, but he wont sell his own products, he only sells through other companies, in my opinion that is kinda sketchy.

I won't argue with the quality, having never dealt with a Gude kit. But, it isn't uncommon for a company to sell exclusively through resellers.

Resellers can sell products much more effectively than a small manufacturer. Also, a lot of smaller companies don't have the personnel to deal with individual sales.

As you can imagine, most resellers aren't gonna be really happy with you if you sell directly to customers and take their business.
