I will be working the booth all week long. Joel Johnson is even making the trip taking time from his busy schedule for Saturday and Sunday. We will have all our popular Team Orion products on display and for sale with a special US Indoor Champs pricing.

I will be on-hand tuning Team Orion stock and 19 turn motors.

For a low price of $5 per stock or 19t motor rebuild, it will include:
1. New set of Katana Brushes
2. New set of Pro Laydown Springs (a new set of springs will be used for the first rebuild, they will be reused on future rebuilds unless they need to be changed)
3. Brush Hood Alignment
4. Perfect armature spacing
5. Diamond comm trued
6. Motors will be broken-in for optimal performance
7. Motor gearing assistance

Basically a full motor rebuild is available for about the same price as a set of brushes!

Also everytime someone has their motor rebuilt using this service, their name will be added to a raffle to win a Team Orion Platinum Edition 4800 Li-Po Battery and a Team Orion Avionics Flight Charger combo!

If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask.
Joe, that sounds like a great deal. Especially since there will be quite a few of us that don't have much experience with tuning these motors. Can I assume that your booth will be up and running on Wednesday?

Bobby - I don't think the entries are all in - I looked on the list last night and there's a bunch of people that I know are coming that aren't on the list or aren't signed up for their second/third classes. I'm sure it will jump quite a bit over the next few days and at the race.

Wow, thats the smallest amount i've seen in 8 years of going to this race. Hopefully everyone is just slacking on getting those entries in.

Impressive to see that 1/12 is larger than TC in terms of entries at the race!!

1/12 - 195 entries

TC - 136 entries

Yes, we did allot of testing before the IIC with our Katana brushes in both Touring Car and 1/12 scale.

I would guess that the entry list will grow a good amount over the next couple days. I'll try and get him to get an updated number next time the list is updated.

In any case, biggest race I have been to for a VERY long time, less than 3 days and counting till we leave!

Yeah, Josh is right. I know at least 8-10 guys that are not on the list that are for sure coming. I'm sure there will probably be 450-500 entries when it's all said and done.

Woohoo can't wait!
