"A lot of people have become friends from other parts of this world because of this wonderful hobby we have. Let's not go and ruin those friendships.
From here on out stay on topic, thanks!"

Thanks for the post Kraig! I certainly agree.

The friendships I've formed with international racers and industry people over the years can only be described as "PRICELESS" - Like icing on the cake for me!

MugenDrew: The R15B body has been available since Nov 15th. The small changes were made to the P909 at approximately the same time - so everything produced since then reflects the changes.

occ: the whole ERFA number thing is a problem that seems to be "un-solvable" if I want to stay in the body-only business.

Example: If I had to wait until EFRA certified the R15B and issued a number for it - then there would be nobody testing it this week in Homestead.

I'll talk more about the dilemma later next week.

Thanks for the supportive comments guys

Thanks Dale for your reply. I can understand your frustration at the time it takes for approval.

When will the new P909 and R15B with the EFRA number in the mould be ready for shipping to your overseas distributors?

Keep up the good work!

I ran both bodies the new p909and the r15 I liked them both. Both were very stable and gave goos steering. The r 15 worked a little better for me in the end great job Dale. Thanks
