Samco hose group buy

Hey there guys,

There are 3 sets of red left. I'd expected to get 8 commitments right away 
but since we have 3 to go I called Intended Acceleration to see if there was 
anything more we could do on pricing to try and get 3 more people to commit 
and get this group buy closed out. The good news is that we now have a 
coupon included in the deal. IA is willing to throw in a 10% off coupon for 
a stage 3+ chip ($70 value). So, for anybody already committed hopefully 
this is a nice bonus (if you don't already have a chip). For anybody on the 
fence, hopefully this makes the fence a little easier to jump over. I really 
hope to get this done by Friday.

Email me offlist w/ questions or commitment to be in on the deal. Sorry to 
clog up the rest of your email boxes.
