Just looked on Tower and now it says 'Late March'. Seems like we'll have to wait for another month.

Is it because they are having high demand or some kind of problem ?

I ture a thin layer out of the comm after initial test run the 8x2 on 6 cells touring last week with 1:9.08. I further run the car with 1:8.63 with another 5 packs this week. The motor is still fast without any sign off comm / brushes burnt even under hot weather.
Now I have more confident to run a bigger pinion next week
My KO double diode burnt tho ...

ok i know that this has probably already been asked but i didn't see it so i'll ask anyways. Is Checkpoint ever going to come out with a stock motor? Cause that would be awesome. Sorry if someones already asked.

Strictly related to high initial demand. The motor is great and worth the wait!

......what does demand have to do with it?
It will be the highest quality fixed timing spec 19 turn on the market.
You will not be disapointed.

I am very disapointed. I am tired of being whipped on by the checkpoint drivers. The check point 19turn has tons of torque and rpm put all in one moter. Silva and Mr. Odonell please bring out the moter soon or let us know whats the problem.

There is no problem.
It is a transitional time for O'Donnell MFG....no problems....just logistical priorities that had to be attended too.
Things will only get smoother and more efficient as time goes on.
Thank you for your patience.

They are trying to make as many racers happy in the first shipment as they can. All I can say is the demand is HUGE and has everything to do with it. They are working their tails off trying to get these motors out. Believe me they know how bad everybody wants the motor. All new motors take a little longer than expected. They are very close and soon the wait will only be a memory. The motor was great in testing and the quality is like no other.
