    We have come to really like Mr. Tim Mcamis and his series of videos along with Bangshift and others. I tell our friends, coworkers and anyone interested about Tim’s videos as we find them helpful and entertaining with his occasional sense of dry humor to add to the interest. I knew much of what Tim teaches in his videos but have also learned new information and better ways to approach a problem you may/ will encounter either during fabrication and maintaining your tools/ race car and more. With so many legendary builders/ racers out in the automotive and motorsports world, Its great to see more of them sharing what they do so that many others can not only apply some or most of the skills they teach but they also see the attention to detail that is important This information is also helpful if anyone comes to be able to afford a professional state of the art race car build, they can buy with the upmost confidence that the quality, support and knowledge is second to none. Thanks for continuing to share the great information you share.
