    Still would hate to get hit by one of Mike's metal impregnated guides. Here is a description of a guide vs hand incident....


    I personally am fine with wire in the front. I would sooner get hit by a car with the proposed fix, or Warmack's car, than the front of a guide.

    A few months back, I got hit by a car that had the old style Red Fox guide on it.

    It hit my hand hard enough to break one of the braid pockets, draw quite a bit of blood, and delay the race, for me to take care of the wound sufficient enough that I wouldn't bleed on the track and the other cars I was going to marshal.


    Who was this poor guy who got his hand cut by a guide? It was Mike Swiss. Maker of the "Swiss Ginsu Knife Guide". Be careful Mike. If you hurt your hand bad, you won't be able to make your guides to sell direct to racers and bypassing raceways.

    Dumb post , Sam, filled with alternative facts.

    I've sold the guides to probably about 15 raceways, so far.(every one that has approached me)

    You've said you've seen them at Port Jeff.

    They've bought them 3 or 4 times. Maybe 5.

    I just shipped 20 to Lester Lucas/Northeast Raceway, about a week ago. (his 2nd order in about 5 weeks)

    The exposed steel ears on the front of any stamped chassis are way more dangerous, than the brass weight glued into the plastic blade, that is the slot .

    If they were dangerous, they would be banned by more than 1 org.

    When I got cut by John Austin's car, it was with a 2005 guide shoe, and not by the blade.

    As said, by the braid pocket, the part that sticks above the slot , not in it.

    PS-you must be getting lonely here.

    I've seen you logged into Slotblog quite often recently, including right now. LOL

    Where are the so called alternative facts? Only in your small mind.
    Not dumb, just facts. Your facts. Your words. Here's more of your own words....

    Sam,
    I got a small puncture wound in our weekly G7 GTP race, 2 days ago, from a pin, pulling a crunched body out of a JK C7 chassis with reversed pans.

    I guess I better ban pins and reverse pans. Lol

    But since you changed the subject, in your last post, I guess you concede that there is multiple things that are more dangerous than my guide, which isn't dangerous at all.

    Face it, you are suffering from SGDS / Swiss Guide Derangement Syndrome.

    Even Jay Guard , who was one of the guys who was originally against it, for Retro, because he thought it was too hi tech, recently posted a picture of his Retro Stocker, with one on it.

    So it looks like you are going to have to go solo, with your suffering.

    The only reason to post this is to attack Mike. He got hit with a car that wasn't using his flag. Reopening a thread that has been dead for almost three months is nonsense. If you don't like the guide don't use it.

    Sam,
    If you are so anti "CR low CG guides", why did you quiz one of my close friends, on how I make them?

    I'll answer my own question.

    Because you claimed you could make them cheaper. LOL

    Clean your hands Mike. They're disgusting.


    No, as usual, you are wrong. I have absolutely no desire to make weighted guides. I want to figure out if, as you claim, any racer can do it.


    Now go get a nail clipper and a pumice stone and clean up those disgusting mitts.


    Here, this is what I use...
