I am no longer in charge of the USA operation. However, should you have any questions please feel free to email me...
May I ask why?

And why all the hate? Does this mean that OCM is unsupported in the USA again?

If the parts support continues, meaning I can buy the parts, it still sucks but at least I'm not stuck with 2 unsupported vehicles....

Just try to sell them now.... I don't think anyone is going to be interested....


Team Magic its not an upstart company, i think its a totally different story man ...

No, but they were new to the off-road market...

Did you own a M1B and deal with TM? If not then you have no knowledge of what you speak....

Cool

Reading first posts company sounded like it would back the product and that it was previus dist.fault.All talk and praise of support and such sold me on my purchase.Now 7 months since available in usa been through 1 dist. and 2 months since purchase.the car sits unsupported.Live and learn stick with the most solid companies whoever they may be.

I think they are disorganized. Alan seems like a good, responsible man. I think they were selling enough.

Thumbs down

Evidently they felt they weren't selling enough to cover exspense for selling and promoting in the cut throat US market.Takes time and money which they chose not to invest.Just my opinion.

Hey guys,
The support your showing Allan is very comendable, but let's hear both sides 1st before the onslaught begins.

Have OCM Got other plans for the US??
Is Allan moving into a different direction??
Has something bizarre happened??

Nobody knows yet., huh...We're just guessing, So lets just see what comes out of the wash and judge from there.

Hope so, would be a shame to loose OCM USA with such a good team.

Ok guys.....I'll need your help to spread this all around asap. I
recieved and email from tawain. Me and Theo. Theo is like me only in
Aussie. He speaks fluent english and about as much tawainese as I do.
We got a "Factory" report that looked to say that we would no longer
continue the USA operation. It really read out that way to me. I spoke
with theo and told him I had to let guys know the deal, etc....

Ok long story but I was reading emails this morning and came across a
email from Theo that had an email from Didian translated into the
current USA plan.

I feel almost crazy but what we are going to do is this:

I will remain in Charge of the team, sales, promotion, etc....

Didian(owner) will move to LA where he owns property,warehouse, etc...

Bulk product, employees, shipment, orders, etc will all be done from
California....

By doing such it frees me up more for helping you guys,
testing,racing, etc...

So OCM will now be with the rest of major companies and more
mainstream. We did somethings as a temp fix to keep OCM in USA going.

Now OCM ltd. is just changing things more permenent and legit so to
speak.

We also talked about advertisment. We will begin much of this when all
product is released. Truggy and buggy rtr, all pro kits, and a few
other things...This way we have a good impact.

So I really did like tony and read the email over and over. It sounded
so weird because we truly were selling a lot of pro buggy kits. I was
thinking why would we go when we are over the hill with the buggy
alone?

So guys..calm down. I am truly sorry. Randy, hang in there with me as
well as everyone else. Guys that I had things going for next
season....our plans are still on track. Let's get this back to
normal...

Again, I am truly sorry. Theo will make an announcement on OCM ltd
behalf shortly.


This is the best way. I have needed help since business has grown. Two
peopla can not do what I do, race, test, recruit, ship, sale, etc...

It got done but took up a lot of time in a 24 hour day. You guys will
do everything the same. I will just send orders to LA and then it will
be shipped.

Again, I am sorry for the confusion. I have never delt much with
Tawain before OCM. I was just trying to keep you up to date. And if
that was to be the case I felt you guys should know upfront. There is
a real heavy language barrier and is easy to get mixed up.
