Default Fantom Done?

Heard from some people that fantom racing is calling it quits, is this true? just looked at their site this morning and it says the domain is expired, now where am i going to get motors from? ghey!

looks like no more alloy 2 (cp based), so i hope the two new ones i got coming last till the reedy/yoko motors come out, mod, 19t, and stock, thanks to rick howart from peak joinin their team!

Huh? clicking on both links takes me to the same website for Fantom. Some of our guys use their motors also. Good stuff.

Firefox sometimes does this when you enter a web site by name only. Unlike Windows explorer you dont need to enter the WWW or the .com for most sites. Sometimes you do though

Troy has moved on to pursue another career. Jeff is still working at the shop and taking orders.
If you call the shop just leave a message and he will get back with you.
