Steve Rule was on the "RC Conf." board a couple of monthe ago saying he knew they screwed up and was trying to make a come back. Maybe they failed??

the website has changed since about 2 months ago, the statement :

"Thank you for your support of BoLINK/ RACEtech/ DragMaster. We will be updating you on the status of distributors and future plans within the week"

has been added in place of the home page

see the difference....
now:
http://www.bolink.com/

about 2 months ago (i bookmarked it):
http://www.bolink.com/home.html

this guy should be able to get their stuff (if anyone can):
http://www.msaracing.com/msadist.shtml

Well, the building hasn't burned down, nor have they completely closed up shop. In fact, there are carpet oval races held there most weekends (for the duration of the winter season), and there is a retail counter open all year long.

Well, Bolink's phone is now working...the answering machine picks up and gives you a greeting, but you cannot leave any messages.

I sure would like to purchase several of their bodies.

Here is the scoop from one of their sponsored drivers:

Allegedly, Steve Rule will be closing the business under the name BOLINK. However it will reopen under a new name all the while continuing production of all products. It was explained to me why this is being done, however I don't know that I can repeat it publically, so I won't. But suffice to say, if this driver has been given accurate information, it sounds like a little duck and cover from either Uncle Sam or possibly one or more of it's investors in new or future design, R & D or products. That's as far as I'll go because I personally cannot verify that information.

Corruptor,

Are you sure about that phone number? The reason why I ask is because I have dialed it several times and all it does is ring.

Or is it an evening hour hobby shop?

Thanks, Mike

I really don't know. I've only called that number once, and I think it was later in the day. They're probably going to be there in the evening tonight through Saturday. I'll be heading that way tomorrow, so I'll see if I have the correct number...
