Jeff,

I guess you might of missed my statement "The situation is less than perfect".

 

And that we approved the short shaft motors you seem to be happy with.

 

The point of my post was to address Haruki's assertion "JK Products should recall the long shaft 7Rs presently in the market".

 

If all non A Main motors were to be recalled, I guess 80-90% of every restricted class motor, ever sold, would need to be recalled.

 

If you need a guarantee the motor will be an "A Mainer", you buy one of these;

COMPLETE G7 MOTORS

M196-20-G7 20 mag CNC open motor with billet retainer ball bearings and .490 84 SAW arm.

$438.86 ea.
 
I think it say's right on the package "Guaranteed to be fast enough, to hopelessly destroy your car".

 

Mike,  Could it be outdated by the time you go to race ?

Mike,
I am not insisting that all the non A Main motors should be recalled.
My understanding is :
“The present 7R Long Shaft are perceived to have some issues such as more slow motors and two-speeders compared to the former batch of 7R, so IRRA has approved 7R Short Shaft.
I am going to place an order of 50 to 100 7R Short Shaft at my distributor.
I have 50 to 100 new 7R Long Shaft on my raceway’s wall.
When the Short Shaft arrives at my raceway, I am afraid most racers will buy Short Shaft versions.
To avoid this I may have to force them to buy Long Shaft if they would like to by a Short Shaft.
I am not sure Short is faster Long but it is psychology of consumers.
As I said in my former post, please forget about “Recall of Long Shaft,” because it looks like barking at moon.

Yes, being a raceway owner is a tough business.

 

That's why I keep my stock low, and order often.

 

I don't even like it, at home, when my wife gambles on green banana's.

 

The point of my post, while the common belief is the later 7R's are the less desirable ones, it's pretty hard to say, for sure.

 

Too many assumptions that all stock is rotated, at about 3 different levels.

 

Importer, distributor, and raceway.

 

Not everyone is like me.

 

I rotate my stock, even in my snack bar, because I take pride in my customers getting fresh Cheetos.

 

Or at least not real stale ones. lol

 

It's a shame slot racing isn't a big enough deal, so that the motors have a serial #, so you can figure what was made, and when.
