What I meant by checking your sources, is to get a second opinion. You could easily have asked Alan Burton, or myself, if what OCM Racing had told you was true or not. I would happily have emailed you the conversation I had with OCM via email where they asked us to raise the price, and my emails to Alan about us being on the fence about continuing to carry OCM product.

Your company has a great reputation in the industry and there is absolutely no benefit for me to try and change that, especially given the circumstances of who you are and who I am.

I guess I was thinking out loud and had a "eureka" moment. I apologize if you took it the wrong way and I apologize to anyone else out there who saw it the way Kendall did.

Hi Mike,

I got your email and will respond to it. That is the first time I have received an email from you though. Usually email is a MUCH better way to communicate with me than the phone

It is actually a 5-port Go Motor. It runs great! You might be able to find more info on the Go motor.

I did not have your correct e-mail address. Thank you for the reply. E-mail works best for me also. You've got mail...

What is going on with ocm? I saw a post on truggyracers about problems with the company but I don't really know what is going on. I was debating whether I should get an 1/8 scale for this summer and OCM was one of the top on my list. After reading the post on truggyracers about getting parts and people preordering the truggy and never getting it sent to them and being out $350 I am worried about buying one.

I havn't heard much about the truggy, I have seen some pics and it looks great. All I know from what I read is that there treatment of the U.S. team and distributors leaves a lot to be desired. You can grab some deals on the Evo buggy right now as a lot of people are jumping ship. Also check some on-line shops or pm me to find out where to go.

You cannot get the OCM truggy right now. They are not available unless you find one from a team driver for sale. OCM is getting everything straightened out right now and have sent emails to all there team drivers about what is going on. I have been talking with them for hours at a time getting everything sorted out to get parts over here in the US so you OCM guys and potential customers will have no problem getting parts. We go everything straightened out this past monday and I should be recieving a real big shippment of OCM parts from OCM in the next week or so. I currently have a couple buggy EVO kits and will be getting some more. I am a dealer for OCM and until they finalize who is going to be there distributor here in the US I should be the only one getting OCM parts until then. My site is www.holeshothobbies.com

If I decide to go with ocm I will probably buy used. I've seen some good deals on them on here. Right now I have it narrowed down to OCM and Hot Bodies, I have 2 HB Truggies right now and I like them but the ocm buggy looks great too. The main thing that sways me towards hb is that I already have alot of parts for them.

Got to race the truggy for the first time this year this past weekend. Ran it at the Kansas RC Pro Series event. Had some minor new kit issues with engine mainly. Got it qualified 6th in the A main. Ran well in the main. Battled for 3rd all race long. Ended up 4th. Not fault of the truggy. It ran very well and I was pleased for the first time out with it. Now with track time and time to tune something other then the new engine....should even be faster then it was weekend #1. This truck has some very good potential. OCM should keep working on it!

Wow I just read the last few pages, and I must say I think the OCM people may have forshadowed such a thing in the name of the buggy because the Kaos buggy has caused quite a chaos indeed for many, many people. LOL
