After a week napping (well not really, just real busy) I'm back to babble!
So JP has been enslaved himself to the revaltion voltage enhancement system and has been busy soldering and assembling each day. We got new cells in and plan to use the new system on them as long as everything tests out this weekend.
I see the Mike-man is back, he too will soon be enslaved to tune a 100 or so motors that are waiting for him. Ready to play, Mike? *GeM* alert for Surge drivers
The Atlas motors have been selling well, and I think people are finding them very competitive with the C2 if geared properly. (We told you just to gear that puppy HIGH!!)
I've been testing Surge motor 'paste'. It's still in testing stages, but let me explain -- You coat the comm and brushes with a thin layer. Twist the arm by hand a couple of times and bolt it in your car. Go out on the track and RIP!
The paste is only good for one run and for at least the first 1-2 min the motor will be balastic. After that, the formula seems to wear off, as does the effect.. Still, certainly something that is interesting. Depending on how track testing goes, we soon may release it. I'll keep you all posted!
We unexpectly received a sample of the new IB3800 cell (thanks danny) and will also be testing them this weekend. Based on information we are collecting, we will soon decide if we also are going to add these cells to our GP3300/3700 line. Speaking of 3700's, we have been dragging our feet on those because for the most part, GP3300s are selling three times as fast.. So we haven't felt much pressure to rush to carry them as it does not seem like their is a large demand for them quite yet.
Other then that -- I think we are soon going to get another person on staff, perhaps a full-timer to handle some of your phone calls and e-mails, at least for the summer. Spring is in the air here in the Northeast, and I have a lot of things I want to do! My CBR 600 is collecting dust, and I'm headed back to the gym for another season of weight-lifting, the NJ shore is a waiting, and that crisp mountain air with the nice view is calling my name.. And those long drives I'll be taking to race my touring car outdoors will be starting at the end of the month, so I just think it's a good idea to get an administrative assistant.
I'll let you all know if we do wind up getting one so you know who you'll be dealing when you call or e-mail!!
Some Surge articles will soon be published in Driver and Car Action... that's been coming for a while now, but I now have at least one date of publication confirmed, so that's all well and good.
Other then that, it seems the Surge team is evolving.. We've been refining the current list and have been enlisting good people as we see necessary. If you sent in a sponsorship app and didn't get a reply, I apologize -- I typically let them stack up and then go through them all at once, picking out the people who stand out for one reason or another..
To the team and others -- Thanks for your continued support guys! We're contining to grow and I'm satisfied with the progress of the last few months. THANKS!
