    In a heartbeat Charlie, I'm all over that! Sharon wants in on the action too.... She already claimed the 7680 casing, so I will be looking for one of those also.

    Any further word on the M1955DM beyond its at Certification? I Have to order my M motor for SodBlaster II (Labor Day weekend) in the next two weeks to make sure its hopefully arrived by then, and really would like a M1955DM, otherwise its going to have to be something else.

    We currently only offer hobby hardware on our website, check with your dealer for 29mm HP and above. Hope this helps!

    Yes, we produced a couple dozen of each for the 54RAS system. Part number is 54 FFCPT and the next run is due shortly. Some dealers do have them in stock.

    We’re doing much better but it’s still a battle. We have a couple new vendors so we’ll see how that goes. So far it has been helping tremendously and we are getting caught up.

    What about reloads? My local vendor (I'm in the northeast) has been our of basically all 29 and 38mm reloads (and single-use motors) for at least the past year, and a lot of my go-to places for shipped orders haven't had enough stock to justify the hazmat fee (if I can't get at least $300 worth of motors, it's really not worth it)

    We’re gonna try a phenolic cast tube. When they are vertical they like to spit out stuff and lots of energy goes to the wrong parts of the motor.

    Yeah there’s never been any issues with 29mm and 38mm loads. You should ask them if they have an order in with us now and if they do I need to see why a 2-4 week item took a year. Weird.

    Last time I talked to him he said he's had a large order with you guys since last year, but that he's been getting partial orders shipped, with very little HPR stuff (mostly TARC reloads and single-use E&F motors)

    Hi Ralf!

    We are close to having this completed, we will have more details soon. AT products will have the CE mark soon and be available throughout Europe again.

    PS I found 2 of the 98 O motor cases in the warehouse, what should I do with them? Please say R AND D.

    Performance Hobbies has nothing on order from us at this point and hasn’t for some time now. Maybe he can give you a better answer than I can.

    Yes we dropped the ball on the specials, my apologies on that one. Your cert special will be at BAR next week no later than Wednesday.

    You’ll get one of the ones pictured below or above or wherever.

    That very well could be as we had them all come in at once and they went out within 2 weeks. No excuse for that on our end and we’ve improved there since then.

    Orders are typically shipped first in first out however sometimes hardware is spread around so all dealers have some instead of one dealer having it all.

    Question - is preference given to orders that contain customer pre-orders or replacement parts? (For example, if I have a CATO on a motor and get it replaced through a vendor who doesn't have any in stock, will they get the replacement hardware and reload before other vendors get stock to sell? What about if I pre-order from a vendor who doesn't currently have stuff in stock?) Also, thanks for continuing to reply on this thread!

    That’s a benefit of having smaller demand.

    Hopefully the 75/7680 and 75mm RAS and Rear Closures are shipping soon too, I have had one on order since Feb, not as long as some but definitely a while.

    I just bought an Aerotech 38-600 motor casing. But not one Aerotech seller has forward or aft closures. Out of Stock! This makes my case just a hunk of expensive aluminum. What's up with the lack of closures? This is very annoying. :mad:

    Me thinks this might have been something you'd have considered before buying the 600.

    Except that if he hadn't, by the time the closures became available the 600 tube would have been out of stock. It's a mess.

    It means that no matter what 38mm casing you buy there aren't any ends for it.
