We apologize for all the inconvenience cause by UPS complete failure as a carrier. Leaving many of our customers products or service parts sitting in their Concord facility for 11 days prior to Christmas into the new year. There was no urgency or desire on their part to correct the situation, all that needed to be done was move the package from a storage trailer they loaded it onto by mistake in the yard to the pickup counter. We did our best to then rush everything out and to assure you that UPS will no longer be a carrier we use. Based on multiple mistakes on their part in 50% of our recent shipments, I would recommend to all not to use them.
The rally season is over. Congratulations to Paul Hartl and Chuck Story (VW Golf) for winning the Canadian 2wd Championship. 2nd was Jeff Dowell and Emily Dowell (Lancer). 4th Eric Deschenes and Cathrine Assulin (Yaris).

We dusted off the R32 Golf for the upcoming Shannonville rally in April. Its been a while since its been out and should be fun on the tarmac.

Scott Giannou and Ray Felice took their 3rd straight Targa Newfoundland win in Classic Division. They were driving their Evil Beaver Motorsport prepared 81 Porsche 911SC shod with HotBits dampers. A job well done by the team, including the Giannou Motorsports service crew that took care of the car during the event.
HotBits has been working with Wietzes Toyota Scion to build a street sport suspension kit for the new Scion FR-S / Subaru BRZ. The kit is installed and heading to Mosport Friday for a good performance test and tune. Kit is available at Wietzes Toyota Scion or through other HotBits dealers.
HotBits is happy to support the Engineering department at Carlton University in their entry to the Formula Hybrid championship. We are working with them on dampers, they present the spec and we are doing the building. We will also assist them in developing the dampening. We are encouraged by assisting the current students to future breakthroughs in suspension development.
