ok as a oval racer i have known steve rule and rick jordan along with steves dad bob for a long long time now. steve rule has made some very bad decisions the past year or so, he will admit this to your face. during the past year steve has let the comapny (bolink) go to hell in a hand basket. alot of us have watched race tech and legends cars owners vent there frustration on here.

steve isn't asking he is begging for a second chance. he promises what happened in the past will not happen in the future. I am all about giving steve a second chance. i know he has made alot of people very angry and maybe even lied to all of us? and i'm sure there are some who have just washed there hands of bolink and steve rule..i'm here asking the oval community to give steve a second shot.

all that steve rule asks for is a simple E mail to 2 companies to carry the bolink line of bodies again. below is there email addresses . just let them know that your local hobby shop does not have any bolink bodies in stock because they cannot get them from there suppliers any more.

horizon hobbies email is [email protected]

great plains email is [email protected]

how many of you won a bolink body or car kit in a raffle? must be 1000's of us.. why? because bolink supports the racers and clubs..lets get steve rule back on his feet again? please no nasty flames about steve or his family..if you dont like steve keep it to yourself.. but if you think he deserves a second chance send an email asking them to carry bolink bodies once again..who knows you may win one in a raffle sometime soon? lol oh yeah and dont flame me either! lol i'm posting this because i know steve did not set out to make everyone mad at him..it took him over a year to screw things up..so it's gonna take some time to repair the damage that was done.. :thumbsup:

I support him, I need the gold ol fashion Bolink servo tape, this generic crap sucks. I hate my electronics flailing around my car, when I take a hit.

e-mail sent. It takes a big man to own up to his mistakes. We must never forget what the Rule family have done for this hobby.

Bolink/RACEtech definately deserves a second chance. Please show your support.

Sent an email

I sent them both an email as well.

Bolink was my first sponsor and I miss the days of "Rad" Ricky Jordan, Craig Perry, the Laniers, etc... Rick was always there to help me and because of that, it helped me become a fairly accomplished racer.

I no longer represent Bolink, but I know what they have done for MANY people over the years and what they have done for this hobby.

I applaud Steve for having the stones to say he made some mistakes and busting his tail to get things turned around. :thumbsup:

I aggree, i know many racers who started with an ole bolink wide chassis or started with legends. for goodness sakes, they have a class dedicated to just a bolink car, that must say somthing about the company! (Hint:Its going to be around for the long haul, regardless of little troubles, Bolink has you covered!)

bring back BoLink

I sent a letter to each and asked them to do it for kids like my son. He is 8 and started racing a BoLink Legend when he was 5. He is currently 1 lap off the track record. Please dont let this class die.

I talked to Pace Gendron some time ago and although he could have swithed to another brand, he sticked to Racetech.

I used to buy some Bolink stuff too (servo tape, body cleaner, 1 or 2 bodies in last year).Once painted, a Bolink body looks just as good as a Protoform one. I'd buy some of their stuff again once all will be available again.
