My two cents worth tuner review.

Ive never in my adult life been afraid to express what I know to be true and Im not starting Now.
This is an open forum but The Mods will probably boot me for this. They are treatening pfftt I think the ones replying to my comments are bunch of slinking Pussy's that need a Kick in the butt by the owner.
Anyway, this is the FACTS and Any member that gets offended , I dont know what to tell you.

First I dont know anyone who doesnt Like Mikes work But Theres plenty of grief about Spartan recently and this is why

Way back I figured Spartan as an unscrupulous little Company that hit big time in the past and tries to maintain a choke hold on their customers today. I realized their cutthroat tactics against KEM when it was going on and wont forget about it. When, Mike and H&S and Innovative just let economics take its course, I thought Wow thats Market economy at its best.

Spartan progress since Mike walked goes something like this:
They released the V2 to lock KEM out.
Recently they promise a new tune to compensate for loosing Mike and His tune expertise But cant produce the actual tune, just rumours .
Jeffs been making feeble excuses about the inability to produce the new tune for over a month.
They lowered their unlock cost from some outrageous $300+ price to a worthless $100 to appease their customers.

They got caught with their pants down when Mike left and its doubtful they will get them pulled back up.
Im sure a hell of a lot of Spartan customers will not wait for Spartan to possibly get competative. They will likely just bail and go a route that has Growth potential, there is sure a weath of info available to make good choices.

If your going to give a tuner review, you should give a review on the tuner you own and have experience with. That would be H&S, correct? You don't run Spartan tunes, you don't run KEM tunes (yet), and you don't run Innovative tunes. Stick to what you know and stop picking fights. You will not win this battle.

Well.. I have to put in a few words, STOP all the bashing between Spartan & Mike (Kem), the issues are between Spartan and Mike, just go play with whatever tuner you have and "ENJOY"... Life is really short to worry about something none of us really know what the issues between Matt & Mike really are, if you don't like Spartan go with Mike/Kem no one is forcing anyone to buy any one tuner!!
Lets talk about our "TRUCKS" here.
