It violated forum rules and was removed.

Re: What happened to the Mishimoto radiator thread?

the club president decided they are spammers and that we don't need new companies trying to develop performance XJ products, so refused to respond to them and axed them.

to their credit, they spent several months trying to work with naxja through sponsorship in an official fashion, but couldn't even get a reply.

i tried to help. i gave up.

If this is true, so much for expansion

Re: What happened to the Mishimoto radiator thread?

From what I can gather their initial inquiries were so poorly written they came across as the latest Nigerian scam.

Not having seen the actual texts I can't say if this is on account of unfamiliarity with English (i.e. not their native language) or just another fine product of our public education system.

At any rate, it is hard to be taken seriously if you can't communicate well.

I do believe that working with vendors should be a priority for . Both sides stand to benefit in that relationship.

This is what I got, sent to me as a moderator trying to reach sponsorship.

Seemed worthy of a conversation at least.

We're developing a radiator for the XJ and want to share our engineering process with the forum members to get their feedback. Our content is a little different than most vendors as it has a more educational focus, as opposed to strictly sales (we mirror content from our blog here). We typically like to post in the technical sections of forums as that sees far more engagement. Would that be possible?

Thanks!

Re: What happened to the Mishimoto radiator thread?

That certainly sounds worthy of a conversation.

Especially if they want to be a sponsor.

They make radiators ( https://www.amazon.com/Mishimoto-R23.../dp/B00860GPIM ) and silicone hoses ( https://www.amazon.com/HPS-57-1219-B.../dp/B00VWYULQ6 ) for our vehicles.

It appears the radiator is a relatively new development, and since they are inquiring here that would tend to suggest that they are considering additional development. At the very least they are attempting to maintain a product line that supports our vehicles. I don't expect Chrysler to keep making parts for us forever. Any additional support that can be developed is a good thing.

I haven't seen what was received elsewhere.

I hope there are ongoing discussions that will end up with both sides happy.

Re: What happened to the Mishimoto radiator thread?

well, they were never replied to, and then their thread was deleted.

i am guessing that was the end of the discussion.

I think we have some key players who are spread too thin.

Re: What happened to the Mishimoto radiator thread?

I won't argue that. Trying to run any part of naxja is a thankless job that will suck you dry.

Most of my best friends are here. As soon as you start trying to volunteer, they become the most entitled, needy, critical and vindictive people alive. Its shocking.

I'm probably one of those people too, but too close to see it.

I'm hopeful that this fence can be mended and that a mutually beneficial relationship can still be established.
