Hey Bob, all

Actually Shawn Lawless will be the first one to won a
Siamese 9 8^o
I'm working with / waiting for Keith to get them
finished right now and am plain stuck fiddling with my
balls until I can get them in my greedy little hands,
LMAO! (hey if nothing else my hands are never idol
;^D

EVen though Keiths made metal shafts for racers for 40
years I got him puckered like I gave him a lemon
enima. Being able to glean some info off of the
Zombies motors caused us to have to rethink and adjust
for bigger motors and a bit more user friendly
assembly 8^)

Funny you all want them now, good thing I didn't sell
my house and invest in building up a batch of these as
I'd have starved to death waiting to recoup my money,
LMAO.

Seriously, for some daily driver rigs it's not rocket
sceince but for what Shawns looking to do it's pretty
damn close 8^o This adds to the pucker factor and the
need to address many issues becomes much more
important to do it right. I am someone who feels
EVerything happens for a reason and with the new data
and info I've gleaned here the last couple months they
will go out with a better advance and a better
designed shaft than the first prototype 8^) and will
hopefully go out and kick ass for a couple of
birthdays without issue.

Anyway I'm not sitting on my hands (I fiddle, remember
LMAO) but I am subject to a certain level of resourses
that prevent me from just whipping these out in
quantity right now.

Cya
