Its just taken a while to get all the equipment up and going at the new testing facility and get Howard up to speed on the process. He has been working on stuff for a couple months now and has it going the right direction but it still takes a lot of time to do the teardowns and inspections that are required by the rules. Its not something that can be done in a few minutes. Once they pass testing they must be verified with the manufacture of numbers brought into the US (There is a min number required) and sometimes the manufactures are slow to get this information to ROAR. Another thing is most manufactures dont bring in the motors until they pass ROAR inspections incase there is an issue. So then ROAR must wait on them to bring the motors in and submit prof of this before they are put on the final approved list. You would be surprised at how many manufactures send in motors for inspection but never send in the money for it. The motors dont get looked at until the fees are paid in full.

So just because a manufacture tells you they are waiting on ROAR dont always believe that. There are a lot of instances where its a manufacturer issue holding up the process.
