Weisco should already have an MC-1 piston ... it was the item that
precipitated this reconsideration of the group buy!
I don't think the group buy is off, I am pretty sure that Javad is still
wanting to find five sets so he can move forward. Since there are some
folks who are getting out I would imagine it may be an opportunity for some
of those who missed out to get in now ...
