Default PayPal no thanks!!!

If you Guys had read some of the bad press PayPal is getting these days, you'd close your accounts right now. (Like I did.)

Maybe when the positive feedback at least equals the negative feedback I'll change my mind, but for now there is just too much negative about the company for my taste.

Not one single Hobby Shop listed on the Axiom site, had an online store to order from. I'll have to look around some more.

Thanks,

Well Pop's you could wait till the server is back up. Online ordering will be a breeze after that.

Pops, Stormer Hobbies is now carrying Axiom stuff . Only Motors right at the moment, but brushes will follow.

I ordered my Fantom Nitro engine from Stormer's and like the site. Very easy to navigate and find what you need. Good service too.
I will be impatiently waiting.

Thanks,

Well in my case, I already have enough stuff to haul to the track with my 2 Sons racing too. Since I do not currently have room for the Com Lathe at the track, every race day would be the cycle for me if it is needed. (3-4 runs).

Do a Board search on PayPal, try a Web search also. Not much good being said out there about PP. In fact from what I've seen, it's down right scary, so I closed my account. Maybe I'm over-reacting, but better to be safe than sorry.

Pops i have good news for you. MOST of the time, when i run my axiom brushes in stock TC foam, I can get 3-4 (good) runs on them, even more in rubber. Heck there was a monster I had that had 3 or 4 runs on it and i put it on the dyno w/ some axiom comm drops and got the highest power # we had seen for a stock in a long, long time.

Hey guys. Just wanted to know what's a good spring/ brush combo for the Orion Stock Chrome RS? My cousin gave me an Epic 27 armature that I have installed in the Chrome. Thanks in advance for the help.
