Re: Scott's vs. GPR v4
Apparently GPR has fixed the bad seals for the V4, the company they used to get there seals through went overseas to get a better deal (but cheaper quality) and they found out...They told me all the new V4's that are being shipped out directly through them this past few weeks have been the updated version with no leaks...
(ide assume if u ordered it through a vendor longer than a few weeks ago other than gpr direct they might have sent an old v4 that has been sitting around with the bad seal issue)
You can check the suspention forum, There is a post on the leaky v4, and i posted the email they sent me, along with others who posted some info. Hopefully they issue is resolved like they claimed...I just ordered a v4 from them last night (Im lucky im local to them if there are any issues)
Im not saying GPR is better than scotts, just pointing out some info because once something bad like the leaky seal issue GPR had happens to a company, it seems thats all you hear about is the negative things and it haunts them no matter if the issue has been fixed.
