Next time be a little more careful when you tell someone to grow up!!
Grow up, you sound like a whining ungrateful kid.

A short while back, it was said that Top Dawg was no longer selling or doing any warranty work on any Mintor engine due to not getting any repair parts from the factory.

Now I see the above quote from ajstoyz saying TD is back in the game.

I, for one, would like to hear a comment from TD clarifying their relationship with Mintor. If my 22 develops a warranty issue within the three year period from date of purchase, will TD take care of it or am I SOL (sh*t outta luck).

I don't find shipping an engine back to Italy at my expense acceptable if it should require warranty service.

Because I was this close to buying a 220 for myself. If TD would have had one in stock I would have bought it. Make no mistake, when running right the 220 is a monster of an engine.

Same here...it would be a good gesture for Top Dawg to let us know what his plans are about any warranty issue that may need attention.

I believe TopDawg will make their own announcement as soon as all assurances are in place and the new deal is done and dusted. Sometimes even handshakes take time

I would believe that...after all, why would they start selling the products again if they weren't going to do the warranty work...it just doesn't make sense otherwise. Patience is in order, besides, what do we have to lose by waiting instead of assuming?
