hobbico/tower has made the O'donnell fuel and they will continue to do so, just all the other o'donnell parts and accessories will no longer be made by hobbico.

mine came direct from steve (im a team driver) so i did not get the wrapping, they were just in a plastic bag... but comparing the 97T that i had in the wrapping and the ones i got from him look the same, but ill look again closely and see if there is a difference i was missing.

Take a look at the last few pages of the EBMods JS Racing engine thread and you'll see what started my conversation with Ed about the new plugs. All my info is second hand, so you factory guys should be able to find out what's really going on.

Hobbico bought the fuel years ago....they own it 100%.

I've said this same thing to steve. Problem is, even if he makes a statement on the forum, it will only please some. For others it will give reason to make disparaging remarks, which he has no interest in participating in. If there is an individual who is particularly upset, or has a specific question, Steve contacts them directly.

By the way, I believe the new website will be something like www.odonnellracingproducts.com. It should be fairly close to being ready, unless there were some technical issues I don't know about.

I'm looking forward to nothing but positive results. I'm ready to see the ball rolling as much as Steve is wanting it to roll.

Dunno..., but the OD logo would fit perfectly on those coconut bikini top things!

Nope, if he makes a statement saying that O'Donnell is going to "insert the various product directions here", there will be folks who just don't think that's the correct course of action, and the armchair quarterback discussions will begin. Take one look at the Werks engine threads...no matter how much Ron tries to communicate, some folks just aren't happy.

How long has it been?

Sometimes, when he's got a ton of stuff happening at once, it'll take me a week or more to get a reply back. I spoke to him yesterday for just a few minutes...LOTS going on at the right now. He had a call on one phone, me on his cell, and two other folks on hold.....fair to say that he's swamped at the moment.

What were you asking about? Perhaps one of us on the race team can help?
