Dennis,

I enjoyed our conversation tonight and I have sent you an e-mail as you requested. If I could put the number of smiley faces on here that I would like to put on here it would crash R/C Tech's site!!

Thanks,

John

Thanks Chris
RD and Richey Racing have always strived to provide great performance at the best price possible. we are comitted to continue that as we move forward. We have started work on another 12 and a 21 engine also but it is a ways off. However it will come as I will hopfully be able to commit full time to RD by early next year. Because we are small it takes some time to get a new project ready. We have found that there many products that exist but they are just not up to par so we are reworking some existing lines of product into new product and launching them under our own brand. The pace has really started to pick up and if you visit the RD site you will see alot of new stuff. If you know of shops not carrying RD have them get a hold of us.

Things that are in the works
A full line of engines
An off road program
Our own nitro sedan

John
your welcome. for those who know me personally they will tell you that i find great satisfaction it helping out the little guy. After all they are the ones that make the hobby continue to exist. I just need to clone myself so theres more of me to go around.

OK so I would be better going with this over a turbo II? Or pretty much the same?

They do act a little different. The team is still using the turbo II but they are close on performance. You really need to try both to get a feel.

the only minor hang up on the 22604 pipe is it ain't roar legal as we spec a 5.0 mm stinger and the .2 MM manufacturer tolerance is dropped from the wording in the roar rules (it used to be there) If your running ifmar or efra its all good.
