Is it like the V2 motor? Or is the common endbell design that we all use now?

Most probably the common endbell designed. Dan told me the motor will be fast!

Dan and I talked about this today. It will be the common endbell design. I don't think Orion would let their patented design be used by OEM's. I'm going to be giving those motors a try for modified though. Eveyone I know who's run them loves them.

Orion is going to OEM the V2, just not anytime soon.......they simply can't make enough to meet orders at the moment. Within time though, they will be available OEM.

I doubt you will see the V2 endbell on a stocker....as its a bit pricey compared to the conventional endbells and with the price limit on stockers, makes it hard to use stuff like that.

I know they must be having trouble. I can't find these things anywhere. Everyone is backordered. If anyone knows of any online stores that actually have some in stock, let me know. I'd like to get my hands on one. I'll even use higher turn, (11-13) and run it in off road to test.

Ultimate has a bunch of them in different styles including the ones you're looking for. Give them a call and see if they can hook you up.

Hey Dan, glad you're on the mend now(I know how you feel, Igot very sick last Wednesday night myself, wiped me out until Sunday)...it's a shame you couldn't forward one of those new stockers of yours up to Milwaukee for me to try next week(I sure could use any little edge I can get).....

From what I understand by talking with an Orion rep on their website forum... They will make the V2 in a stock and a 19t version and it will be available during the first half of the year.

Hi, I'm in the market for some new packs...Its basically a toss up between fukuyama, promatch, and fusion. Can any of you help me out on my decision? Any real race info on the fusions other than whats on their website...or the others for that matter?
Any help will be appreciated.

Aluma,
I would definately recomend you chose Fukuyama for your matcher. I have recently switched from being a Promatch guy and some Integy, both of wich are great packs. But the Fukuyamas have somthing special I will guarantee you will see on the track.

Batteries are batteries. find a good matcher that you trust and go with them. Ask around at the races and see who has a good rep. Matchers that dont have a good rep in general dont last too long. I know fuku, promatch, fusion,kmr all have decent stuff. good luck
