re: Design Technology Project

Scottish Carties Comments - October 1, 2014 - 14:00

In reply to Design Technology Project:

I know David Ackroyd, who is the guy who runs Formula Gravity, has been out of the country for a while so has been quite hard to contact. Might be worth trying again. The FG kits are also marketed by Technology Supplies Ltd.

There is Sejkora in the Czech Republic making carties too.

We ran a survey last year asking what sort of price people would be willing to pay for a racer, but I think all that really showed is that most people actually prefer to build their own and are not prepared to pay very much for a ready made racer. Either that or they have a totally unrealistic expectation on how much a racer would cost to build.

Why not post your question on our facebook page - you might get some useful feedback there.

 

 

Thanks for the help, I've

Thanks for the help, I've been trying to contact Formula Gravity but with no response. I'm being pushed quite tight for a deadline and need some client input. Do you know anyone who could provide sales information on any similar products, or any sort of price range my product should fit into along with any feedback on the idea as a whole and what would need to be done to make it feasible.
