So before you go being sarcastic about something you know nothing about, maybe you should check into it.
i am a former ocm driver.. so i would like to think i know quite a bit about how ocm treats there people.. so please dont assume i am making comments about something i know nothing about.. How are you promoting your business by making comments to everyone who post something negative about ocm? i dont get it i guess. i am not starting a fight with you because i could really care less about ocm or how you are selling the product.. so please dont take it that way

I had high hopes for mine as well. I just couldn't take how soft the plastics were. Screws stripped if you even look at them cross. And Diff bearings kept falling out on me in the r causing me more than one DNF But I did get some help from a team driver and had it turning VERY well. It has great possibilities. And CHEAP! Excuse me....a value.

I understand totally. I do not really want to get into how the treatment issues are or anything because I know nothing of that. What happened has happened so lets try to make this all better then before. I just know they make a nice product and people that have it like it, and I just want to provide a way for those people to keep getting parts and running there cars regardless if they are OCM team drivers or not until OCM gets a distributor. I just wish all this treatment stuff and political stuff can get put behind everyone and just talk about the buggy and truggy. After all this is a hobby and if you are able to get parts easily and have fun that should be what it is all about and I am trying to do that.

Just a heads up:

A main has OCM parts on clearance, seems everyone is dumping OCM product like Enron stocks. My prediction, this company will not make it in the us after this. Would of been great to have another RC Co. around. It would of drove prices down across the board.

I still have not gotten about 500 dollars worth of stuff from him and he does not answer phone calls, emails, PM's or anything and others are saying the same thing so judge for yourself who seems to be in the wrong now.
if your going to call some one a flop call them that to there face or atleast where they can see it

btw good luck to all the people that invested time with ocm. and ocm making it in the states probably wont happen for a long time. if there so concerned with having a us distributor why dont they quit beating around the bush and do something not use you or any other person to do it for them.

Whatever , Like I have said already I will have plenty of stuff in stock for everyone so if anybody needs parts I will post when I recieve the parts so nobody has anything waiting that did not show up. When I get them, they will be posted on my site, before that nothing will be sold in advance.

Do you think that they may just be taking there time and getting the right distributor this time. No sense in jumping out of the chip pan into the fire..

Again that is where I come in for now. I am not just selling it all for retail. If any of you are Team drivers you will STILL get the Team driver Discount on all of your parts. I have been given a list to know who is who so you will be taken care of. Again when the parts are posted I will post and let everyone know and they will be available only then.
