    When I got my first set of 1500 series motors reconned about 2 years ago, I was in contact with KADS, always available and responded quickly.

    I sent in a request to get another DD 1500 series motor redone and this was 5 months ago... Not one response or a hey we will get back to you email.

    I'm okay with "assembled in the USA" though.

    Yeah, but someone on an "American Pride" patriotic kick should understand where his vehicle was assembled before opening his mouth. Then again, there are German, Japanese, and Korean automobiles are assembled in the USA whereas certain GM, Chrysler, and Ford vehicles are assembled in Canada and/or Mexico. I guess I would really blow that local's mind if I told him that a Toyota went to pay more Americans during assembly than his muscle car.

    Of course, that is neither here nor there. Like it or not, the economy is GLOBAL now and after seeing the indivuals churned out by today's education system, I don't know if I would want something assembled by them in America. FFS, college kids can't even get my order correct in a restaurant, so I most certainly wouldn't want them working on precision electronics.

    I agree with you, its pathetic that we cant even produce/ assemble our OWN cars.. Thus being the reason i would not buy one of those new cars. would rather have a true AMERICAN muscle car any day.

A lot of cadence stuff, but I have slowly drifted away from cadence as i am no longer carrying their name and their good stuff i feel is priced above other equivilant products. I do have some of their old stock like 2 a7's, an a5, and my z7000 laying around still . all american products, the first 2 being zed classics

    I was just messing w/ ya. Looks like you flip-floppitied on that based on my gross out of context highlighting. I have never seen any DD setups that have impressed me and would never recommend them to anyone for any daily/demo applications. That's just my own opinion for the OP.

    Personally I would prefer that for the most part it stay "assembled in America." There are parts that are made better in other countries than the U.S.
