If you look carefully, he is holding his phone in his hand, most likely checking the shipment status of the parts for the rumored new v1 (lol)

Doesn't the v1 already have pretty good off axis especially in 34.7 or am I mistaken?
No! The V1 has terrible off-axis compared to a R3 or my original Redline.

I called Valentine again and the woman, who was different this time, sounded very young, confirmed new components and new face plate. Said they're really hoping for August. Wait, I mean September, no no it was definitely October.

I was told July but also told that with July nearly over, we are looking at August. I can buy one but it won’t charge me until it ships. She was very kind and I seriously, just need a second one for my other car. I am NOT dealing with fleabay so you can rule out that option.

Kiddin’ or truth? This out of stock discussion has taken several turns that it’s hard to distinguish between fact and fiction and joking. I know the end of your post was joking from the tone (September). But the new face plate- ?

I emailed them and asked point blank a few weeks ago about a new face and got no response.

I didn't think they were taking any orders, yet - they told you they would take your order for a new one, but won't charge you until it ships?

How much did they say it would cost?

E-mail might not be on their "radar"... :p
At this point radar is not on their radar. They took my order over a week ago and was told in the $400 area for new unit and they would get with me to confirm price prior to charging my card. Never did ask when or what the new V1 would have under the hood as we will not know till they are good and ready to tell us.

They didn’t say it would cost any more than what was already listed on the site. Yes they told me this today. I am ordering.

Not joking. I spoke about this in a thread I created a while ago. New faceplate and internals.

Exactly! That's the big difference between my V1 and my Redline and R1's as well! Out on our long range straight course my 3.872 can nip at the heels of my R1 and Redline-O, even at 4 miles! As soon as the least bit of off axis comes into play however, my V1's range drops like a rock. From the rear however, my V1 murders them both.

I don’t think Valentine is dead (yet), for what it’s worth.



However, it’s the fact that he is set for life that allows him to specifically stand by and do nothing. It just doesn’t matter what happens to the V1 from a financial perspective for him.
Apparently, in addition to employing personnel with a deficit understanding of customer relation skills, there may be a Production Buyer with an imperfect understanding of Six Sigma processes. It is looking more like that said Production Buyer missed the segment on lead-times. On that note: Only 8 shopping days until August. /s

Looks like we have gotten off-topic here, and the OPs question is answered in the poll results above.

I am locking this up.
