My economics teacher in college taught me some very good lessons, one of which was "If you make one dollar on a deal its worth doing" that may be an extreme but looking at the poll if dinans cost of production is between 15-20k then they are very poor business men to be selling the motor for 50k. As Dick Fidd pointed out the avg was 29 people will buy it at 22k which assuming it costs them 20k to make means a profit of 58k as opposed to the 30k profit of only selling one at 50k. Again depending on the cost of production the numbers all change but if I had to guess they are not really thinking this through.You dont have to buy it...most people obviously wont...From his point of view...if he cut his profit in half and sold twice as many engines what good with that do him from a business standpoint? I'd rather sell less engines and make more profit...not defending him as a consumer...I would love to see it cut in half price wise...but as a business man I can understand his pricing.
This is hilarious - I am on the exact same page as Ranger. The point of this thread was simply to show that Dinan doesn't want to sell these motors - they just want to rape some more people on mandrel tubing, and the news of this motor will help them to do that.
So far, according to the poll, they have sold 29 motors at an avg of about 22K versus 1 motor at 50K. Point proven.
Finally, why should we be grateful to Dinan for anything? Is he doing something so wonderful and unique? We need to demand more value from our jesters. :deal:
