Default Engine Manufacturers

What is it with engine manufacturers? I ordered 2 engines towards the end of July from the importer who in turn directly ordered them from the manufacturer. We are now in the middle of september and we are about 2 weeks out from our national titles and they still havent packed them to be sent out and i suspect havent even manufactured them. Yes i know it is a world championship year for 8th scale (which these engines are for) but the were ordered 1 full month prior to the worlds!!!! Why is it so hard? :flam ing:: flaming:

Is it the manufacturer, the distributer or the shop causing this problem?

Worldwide you can get engines, I think you are at the wrong shop.....

Bartz is Italian so he won't be happy to hear you bagging out the Mafia

Nova is the best...their bearings just suck at the moment though Although your CRF is going pretty good

I have two Novarossi plus 12-3SCT motors, one is about 3 gallons and the other one is about 1.5gallons and never ever had problems with bearings or anything. They are 2007 production.

I have an 08 353 that had less than a gallon in it and the rear bearing went out. Replaced with a steel one and getting ready to start the 4th gallon with no problems.

Not through a shop matey. My Dad is the distributor on our side of the country so they were ordered direct from the importer and the manufacturer. Yes it is the manufacturer that is causeing the problem...they arent even built yet.
