It's long, long overdue, but I finally got some cards and oiler labels made, and am going to start selling to distributors, shortly.
 
The first distributor I approached, Eagle Distributing, has agreed to take on my line, and I hope to get them out product before I leave for a short vacation, on Friday.
 
I'll also approach the other distributors  ASAP.
 
I'll be listing items in this thread, with stock #'s, pics, and descriptions, to facilitate the distributors, raceways, and racers, on ordering items from their respected outlet, up the "food chain".

CR001 Cross-Country oil
 
$4.95 retail each
 
This is the synthetic oil that I used to lubricate the JK car when I did the durability/longevity test for JK Products on their Hawk 25 rental motor.
 
What was supposed to be a "quick" test, to confirm the motor would last 5-6 hours, turned into a 232+ hour, maxi-marathon, over 2+ months, rubberbanding a controller, and the car running full speed around Orange lane on my King track.
 
In the final weeks, I was running the car 8 hrs.+, at a time, running it overnight at times, with no stops for lubrication.
 
Finally after 232 1/2 hours of running, one of the brushes, along with the leaf spring it was attached to, wore through, and the car stopped.
 
Using the lap times to conservatively calculate the amount of total laps the car run, it was determined the car ran well over 3400 REAL miles, or literally from coast to coast, Pacific to Atlantic ocean.
 
The axle and motor bushings survived fine, lubricated exclusively by C/R Cross Country oil.
 
To keep the price down, I was able to find an affordable bottle, that also had the nice feature of an attached cap.
 
So you have the triple threat of slot racing oils.
 
The best oil, at the best price, with the best container.

CR003 Econo Group F Wing car chassis kit
 
$24.95 retail each kit
 
Laser-cut, fully hardened, .050" spring steel. Approx. 4.61 guide lead.
 
Will accept all JK and Proslot, FK and Euro MK 1 minimotors, along with modern C can motors.
 
A combination of begging, and buying a large quantity, from my vendor, allows me to sell this at this great price.
 
A chassis at this price truly allows a car in the Group F / "$100 Wing Car " class, be made for less than $100.
 
When designing this, I was hoping for good, but while I was gone on vacation, I was informed, racers who struggled for consistency in the make it or break it spot, on my swoopy, but NON ellipically routed,  King, the Lead-on, in Purple and Black, found themselves running great up there, along with the rest of the track.
 
It now holds all my Group F records (single heat laps, total laps, single lap time), and has dominated my Wednesday night Group F wing racing, along with being undefeated in the two races we've held in our newly formed Group F and Group FK12 classes in the monthly John Austin Fun Races.

CR011 3/32" ID, .400" long, brass pre-cut, gear sleeve
 
$4.50 retail (zip-loc bag of 15 pcs.)

 

These are the perfect length to sleeve Parma (1/8" bore) crown gears, for 3/32" axle.

 

If you use these for that purpose, you have to cut your own set screw passage.

 

Recently, I use these quite a bit for motor installation, as an easy to solder to, brace/gusset.

CR013 7/32" OD, 3/16" ID, 1.100" long, brass pre-cut, axle/bearing tube
 
$8.00 retail (zip-loc bag of 10 pcs.)
 
A shorter version of our popular 1.400" precut tube, the shorter length allows the use of axle collars, to keep your gear mesh with inline Retro cars.
 
More practical for 3/4" wide brackets.
 
Again, well worth the 80 cents to assure you have two perfectly square ends, to install your bearings in.
