Too bad. I'd be interested but don't get my year end bonus until the 25th and don't want black ARC-8's.

At this time those wheels are not included in the group buy but we will be doing a few more later this winter and those sizes will most likely be included at that time.

4x wheels is considered a full set of wheels.

Honestly, I'm not too surprised.

1. It's the Christmas season

2. Thus far you can get the same deal with EAS right now and don't have to wait. Personally I think for it to be more enticing...we should already be at the $50 mark. I don't know what wholesale is but for waiting and then paying for our wheels up front and waiting again...we should be entitled to a bit better of a deal. ...after all it appears as though they're using our money to make the initial purchase anyway.

I may be off the mark here but just my personal opinion.

That said...I'm not in a huge rush so I'm happy to be a part of this if it helps us get to a lower price point....if not....not so much. If we don't get to 10 anybody can get this deal...TODAY.

Steve,

We are the manufacturer/distributor of these wheels. Your funds are not being used to cash-flow the business. We don't have wheels to sell until 3~ months after we confirm a new production run. Most of the units are already here (over 2000 in stock), and 600 more are arriving on the 19th.

We usually offer a Group Buy at the end and the beginning of the year. We've done this about two dozen times now for different fitments with great success. Our last Group Buy for the EC-7 had just shy of 90 participants at the end. 15 of those were for 1 series fitments, and none of the other designs (ARC-8 and AERO-7) were included as an option.

Those members waited about 30-60 days to receive product. The last day to join this particular Group Buy is the 21st, and our ETA to get the last of the sets shipped out is the 28th, which is a one week wait due to time needed for QC and possible unforeseen holiday delays.

During every single Group Buy we've hosted in the past, additional participants who do not add their name to the feeler list, end up joining in the last few days. Looking at the total participants who write their name down (not a required step) one week before the Group Buy is over, has never been a good measure of how it will perform. Last year in one group buy we had 30~ members signed on the list, and in the last 48 hours an additional 25 members joined who were not on the feeler list. On average we get an additional 20-30% of members from outside of the feeler list.

This is not a sale. This is a group buy, so the wait of the sign-up period is needed. If we stopped short a week early it would still be good deal for everyone, but this format offers the community the opportunity to reach much higher discounts, that is entirely based on their participation.

Thank you for your understanding,

-Eddy Pintacsi

Thanks for the explanation...I was aware of the previous group buy for the ARC 8s but given I had just gotten my oner I was too late. Definitely seemed to be a lot more interest probably due to the new product.

Either way, totally understand and figured since that was my thought process, I'm sure others may have been thinking the same thing.

Thanks again,
Steve

After talking it over APEX will be moving the entire pricing tier so that it now starts at a $50 discount off of the total retail cost + the free shipping* you are already receiving.
Here is the new pricing tier for the 1 series group buy:

01-10 sets = $50 + FREE Shipping*
11-15 sets = $100 + FREE Shipping*
16-20 sets = $150 + FREE Shipping*
21- ∞ sets = $200 + FREE Shipping*


APEX wants to keep people as motivated as possible so please keep spreading the word through every method you can think of because more participants in the group buy means a greater discount for YOU! Great ways of spreading the word are sharing the 1 series group buy page in your own forum signatures and even on your Facebook pages! You are not only helping yourself by spreading the 1 series Group Buy message but you are also helping the other group buy participants; this is a group effort! The next pricing tiers are easily attainable if we all just put in a little effort. Thank you guys!

Click here to join the Group Buy!

Here is the current list!
