Default Tornado Fuel Exclusive USA Distributor

Hello all,

We have been quiet for a bit because we have been working on an exciting news. We finally secured it last week and it is time for us to announce it.

Starting from now, the full line of Tornado product will be distributed by Putnam Propulsion. As a lot of people know, Mr. Putnam has been with the RC industry for the longest time and at Tornado, we believe Mr. Putnam will be a big asset for us distributing the fuel for us.

Mr. Putnam / Putnam Propulsion will be the Exclusive USA distributor starting now. If you have any Tornado Fuel need, please let Mr. Putnam know and he will be glad to look after it for you.

Thank you Mr. Putnam and Welcome to the Team!!

We are very excited to be the Exclusive USA Distributor for Tornado Products.

We will be working closely with Tornado to insure that the US demand for Tornado Fuel and Products are met and readily available nationwide. We currently have a small inventory of fuel available, with another shipment due at the end of the month.

We are currently working on a new, updated website as we have outgrown our existing site. In the meantime feel free to contact us M-F, 9-5 EST for all questions, tech support or orders. Our contact number is (518) 452-0422. Dealer Inquiries welcome.

We thank Tornado for this opportunity and look forward to being part of the Tornado team!

Regards,
Todd Putnam

Yes, in fact we already have. We currently manufacture 2 different Nitro dirt oval cars, with a third in the works. We will also be expanding our product line and manufacturing products for the Nitro On Road and Off Road markets.

Our resdient Nitro motor guru, Shih hang Lee, (aka:General Lee) is currently working on having his own line of pipes manufactured as well.

We currently sell engines, pipes, starter boxes, plugs, accessories, etc; that will all be encompassed on the new website.

If you have any questions on what is currently available in the meantime, feel free to call me at the shop.

Regards,
Todd Putnam

Korey,
Best fuel by far we have used. Greater performance and less engine wear = win/win. You will have a huge advantage in your corner of the US...until your fellow racers get Tornado, too...

Andy,
Thanks-I make the big name drivers look good when I can-wheeling their cars from a remote location. Hey, gotta help them out- their incentive programs depend on it...
thanks again-

Richie,
Thanks. We are located in Albany-just a couple of hours North of Brooklyn. With the demand from the NYC area, we may be able to work out a bulk delivery schedule periodically to the city. We can discuss it when you contact us.


Brazilct,
Thanks-
