with the growing popularity of the truggy and moster classes - I would bet they wouldn't mind tapping into that early, as very few manufacturerers have already.

The first engines to ship will be .12 on-road engines in January or early February. A .12 off road will follow. The .21 and .28 off road. And lastly, a .21 on-road.

These are high performance racing engines. They will meet all rules specifications and will not be offered with pull-starters.

We expect the street price to be between $250.00 and $300.00. But that is hard to predict. It could be less.

Replacement parts will be very economically priced.

Are they going to be available in large quantity or should I pre-order from my shop ? And if yes which shop will store them first.

All the major US distributors will stock them so your best bet is to contact your local hobby shop and make sure they order one for you. We will be releasing more information very shortly. At that time they will be in the distribution system and can be ordered.

The first three months will probably see limited supply simply.

Rick,

Thanks for the reply, I will contact my shop immediately and ask him to order engine. Are you also going to have a special pipe for it ? Also which plugs are the one to have ?

Thanks,

Philippe
