Hi Ron,

I have been trying to access the Outisight webpage today but I keep getting an "ACCESS DENIED"" message. Has the site been closed?

We have recently started a Womp racing program at my local raceway and I was keen to show the owner the range of 1/32 scale vintage bodies in the hope he may stock them.

Regards,

Alan

I suspect you're using old links.

Here's the Fast Ones link from Ron's Slotblog signature:

Fast Ones

And this is the Outisight link:

Hi Greg,

Thanks for that. I tried using the links on Ron's Slotblog posts and still got denied access so :scratch_one-s_head: :unknw: working fine now.

Do you know the difference between education and experience? Education is when you read the fine print; experience is what you get when you don't.

No offense but time waits for no man - since 2005 is a long time for a business to not post new product.

I guess Ron is too busy to update his old website. But in these Retro racing days, retro is cool, and his website is truly retro... :)

Alan, don't get your expectations up to high before you get there, the site is uninformative but the logo still looks good.  ;)

Ron, it is a dis-service to you and us. Update what is available and - with mask or without mask would be a start.

If you are using Mozilla or Explorer all you will get on Eagle's web site is the header. I found if you use Google Chrome you will be able to access the entire site.
