- 28th July 2010: Smitdogg - Guru has been really busy lately and hasn't had time to update his site. I'm going to go ahead and mention a few of the recent arrivals there. One was a box from me that included Maximum Speed.

- 24th May 2010: Smitdogg - Guru and I got a Maximum Speed Atomiswave cart. It came with artwork but I don't have a scanner handy so maybe Guru can scan it when he gets it.
