Update

Hey guys, A small update. My hand surgery has been postponed until next Tuesday, December 22nd..Note the announcement on our website main page http://www.rayaracing.com/ at top "we will not be taking any resizing orders until January 16th."

I prepared and tested a few extra resizing die sets http://www.rayaracing.com/prodtooling.htm that can be shipped if purchased before next Tuesday.

Happy Holidays guys

Thanks Monty,

Thought I was caught up with my work comitments but a few the guys managed to talk me into servicing a few more P+S sets (NEXT DAY AIR SHIPPINGS)before scheduled visit to the house of pain.

Alot of intirects need doing can be done with one hand I guess.



Merry Christmas Ho Ho Ho

Default Saturday Resizing Service

Nitrod8,
Actually I am doing last minute orders today before this coming Tuesday surgery. You will see a previous post I stated surgery date postponed 8 days. Your package could be sitting here a few weeks before I am on even light duty work detail. But will take care of you soon as I can.

Monday last shippings go out.

nitrod8,
Hopefully your package will arive for me to service along with a few others I am expecting tomorrows mail. Otherwise your package will be of the first serviced once I regain a little hand strength back fallowing surgery. How soon depends mostly on pain meds kidding.

None the less I should be ready to rocknroll again shortly after the new year. Last year I got slamed middle of January,and packages arivals didn't slow down till September. Hopefully 2010 will be as good, and with a tad more my own racing will be sweet.

Default Before hand surgery

Again, Thanks to all my RC friends that wished me "Good luck" before tomorrows hand surgery. Recieved emails, texts, private messages along with phone calls throughout the day today. Calls from across the boarder from Israel, Ireland, and Canada.....Nice day.

Just a few orders to ship tomorrow morning and only missed "one" resizing packages that have not arrived to me today in time inorder to get out along with tomorrows shippings.

Feel free to call, text, or email me with any questions these next few weeks I'll be home and not doing shop work.

Merry Christmass !!!!

Default Need some International customer feedback

Happy New year Guys!!

We're starting the new year with necessary website updates, primarily resize order form return shipping options/details.
The increase in return shipping costs include the now standard delivery confirmation service on both USPS First Class, and USPS Priority mail, Domestic orders only. Previously customers optional purchase option USPS additional services.

Shipping USPS International Priority and Airmail Parcel Post remains untraceable (sucks! see their note at lower page) http://www.usps.com/international/pr...ernational.htm . Has been my major concern (bugs me big) and has me now looking in to other shipping services, even if more costly, Or do we just return ship International packages Airmail Post? Return shipping USPS IMS or FedEx are both justified expenses with group order (5 and more sets) but not at all efficient shipping method with one or two sets. I need some feedback from my international customers here.

At any rate I appreciate that our International Customer base has gotten close in size our Domestic Customer base. Thank you all for using RayAracing in 2009. Wish everyone a great new year!!!

Default Now typing with 2 hands

Cast Removed yesturdayday(over 1 week earlier than expected)and Xray illustrated above average heeling, according to surgeon. Not to mention my finger strength is night and day better than just a few days ago. With that said I have the last "two"weeks back orders return shipping packages prepared, ready for servicing recondtioning-resizing orders tomorrow. Inspected a few sets with no trouble handling piston+ sleeves with left hand, while operating micrometer friction ratchet with same ease as prior to operation. I feeling good again, regardless of the fact that I had found yesturday my resposability of an aprox $13,000 total medical expense will be above $4,000......Insurance plans arn't what they were. Enough said there.

LIGHT DUTY Another week and back full force taking reconditioning-resizing orders. Our work includes your prefered level of tightness ( sealing per piston to sleeve bore clearance) generated with meticulously reconstucting (reforming) sleeve alloys in small incriments, while constantly checking a resulted in motioned piston to sleeve bore vacuuming effect. See the vid on my website that which is over 5 years old that in near future will be made more currant to illustrate the much better processing slight changes along with my coordination improvements. This "Matching" process IS very similar to how a piston is "matched" to sleeve cylinder at assembly by your engines manufacturers' . The only differences here is that a resized piston + sleeve sets have already been broken in i.e machined parts stress relieved, along with piston + sleeve work hardened (burnishing process) done prior engines original running. NOTE: NIB piston and sleeve sets are very brittle/ fragile until they have been ran for a gallon or more. Rebreakin is uasualy complete with a quart fuel usage on a "MED" tightness resizing request. These preferences have been standardized by 9 years dimensioning and referenced resizing work per racer feedbacks, and continuousness testing. Please note that I am a Journeyman tool + die maker well versed in alloy reconstruction and metallurgy, allowing me a firm understanding these little two cycle engines physical wear characteristic's. Again, The many racers of all levels world wide keep me updated with performance reports in my work. Furthermore, I am religiously watching the racing forums staying informed industry news and changes, preparing for the many new engine models that evidentially hit my mail box. I would not incourage anyone to atempt this process/craft or having service done at any trackside with expecting good results that which requires total preperation essential a process demanding accuracy.

Thank You guys for your last months patience - I look forward to another great year offering you all the specialized services I offer. Researching and selecting the best hand surgeon in this region I feel was the right thing to do now.
