Got the same ad, never heard of them. I prefer to stay with ESP a proven winner with both there smog machine and evap machine have both been work horses, will not be trying anything new companies anytime soon.
ESP was NOT one of the vendors to meet the BAR deadline of Aug. 15, 2013 for submission
of their version of DAD for Alfa testing in the BAR Lab.
ONLY AFTER Alfa testing is complete, will the vendors be able to do Beta testing
in smog check stations that apply with a vendor to do Beta testing "in house".
ALL this information is available on BAR's website.
I might ask ESP "why" they did not submit a version of their DAD for
I believe I am safe to say most smog shops got the flier from Drew Technologies for their DAD.
Why not give it a try?? We'll never know unless we "test drive it".
Yeah just this morning, nah ill wait till esp comes out with something. Also the less people beta test it the longer , I assume , it would take to implement this crap. I also dont like the idea of.having more shit monitoring or affecting my.score.
I heard esp is on the list, esp is owned by another company and are marketing there product under a different name, which one of the four on the list I am not sure. Intend on finding out before making an decissions.
If i am going to be a lab rat and test anybodys equipment they better pay first , i will charge them 250.00 dollars per test (price we pay esp per service call) Also I will refuse to use their equipment three days a week , just random days they have to guess what days i will work for them and use their DAD crap. I say we all do the same cause you know its gonna happen to us sooner or later .
I attended a demo of the Drew Technology DAD device last night in Concord.
They do not know if the DAD will identify the VIN in the "back round",
to catch and/or prevent "clean plugging".
That's a software issue only the CA State BAR reps have knowledge of.
Of course it will identify vin , they just don't want us to know, how else are they going to identify vehicle being tested ? They don't want us to know this so they can catch the cheaters right off the top. Easy money for BAR.
