If you all have them, how come nobody has taken a picture of them for their web shops?

I will have them up later this week. I was waiting for the picture from PICCO, I am sure they would be much nicer than ones I would take.

Because nobody has them?
I have seen it with some webshops claiming to have the products first but when ordering there is always a delay. Just hoping people will place orders thinking they will be the first.

Roelof, I am sorry, I am confused on what you’re talking about. What do you mean nobody has them; please help explain your remarks. I have sold 4 last week and up to today and I have 3 or 4 coming today or by Friday. ACORN RACING USA is live inventory, if it says it’s in stock it’s in stock. Kevco racing is the USA importer of PICCO and ACORN Racing USA are the only two shops that I know that do have them, everybody else I would question in the USA. I just don't want anybody to think our credibility or site has false information.
.
If you would like to order one I will have them with no delay when you see them in stock at our site. TEAM PICCO Italy does not have the picture on their site either. I will have one up this week like I said I would. No disrespect to you, just defending on your remark.

Thank you Billy

I did say some, not all...

I know at least one shop starting pre-sales when a new procuct is published, even not knowing what the price will be. And I know a shop who can say they have them on stock at the same time. Weird isn't is selling product that can not be on the market yet.... The proove is there when ordening and it can not be delivered in a few days.

Also googling arround the net is only giving some results with 2 or 3 USA based shops, not even italian shops....

I must go with Stefan about the pics. If someone is proud to be the first then there are pics.....

I expect arround the Neurnberg toyfair we know more form Picco.

I will have pic's by Friday, just called KEVCO and they said I should have the engines today UPS. If so I will have pics up asap when I receive them. I was asked to wait for the pic's from PICCO, I think that is why KEVCO does not have them up either. I have had the 2013 engines for 2 weeks now. Black head engine.

Thanks Billy

I've had one in my hands (not mine unfortunately) so I know at least a few have made it to the states.

Hey guys no need for drama. Billy is correct in defending his credibility, there is really no reason to lie. If you want to see what the engine looks like, look at the RedRC Mike Swauger announcement, Picco put that picture together. Our team picture page shows new boxes they come in. Or would be nice if you just cut to the chase and purchase one, you will not be disappointed!

Otherwise, no one from our group will be posting pictures, until Alberto/Edo Picco post pictures up on their website.

This will be Loran's primary motor for the WinterNats next month. A couple hours leaner on the bottom and it should be ripping.

I was at the track to witness Jeff and Kevin break in the engine! Ran great out of the box as Piccos always do!
Oh and Billy, he is a hell of a guy! :-)
