Smokem Racing is still in business. I am sure they will reply once they are back online (after holidays and restocking).

I'm not so sure they are still in business, Their webstore has been closed close to 3 months and their facebook hasn't seen an update in months, they are not even responding to email. I hope they are still around as I would like to buy some stuff from them too.

If anyone has a status update please do share....

cheers

The website may be up and running, but when you go to checkout (either of 2 ways - PayPal or Website checkout) all you get is this message...



It's been 3 months since New Years. You would think that the owner of Smokem would be back from holiday vacation by now.

Default still in businness

Just wanted to let you guys know that Smokem Racing is still in business and will be back shortly.

The business has been relocated to another country and he is just settling in to his new "real" job and setting up house. Once the transition has been completed, Smokem Racing will be back in full swing.

Smokem Racing does not have RC tech and hence why no responses on here (other than mine).

I have passed on the messages from here to him.

Ryan Maker told me that Vincent may have pulled the plug on it. His real job is stupid busy and he has no time.

That really sucks. Now I have to find some other place to buy Hiro Seiko screws.

Does anybody have a good suggestion where to buy Hiro Seiko aluminum screws?

Eric has a selection, you could give him a call if you can't find what you need.
