Hi all!

I spoke with Jim Lodding at Unortodox Racing and I've been able to arrange a another run of the flywheels that the great god of opeldom Bob Legere had produced. That is if I can get at least 5 buyers.

These weigh in at 9 lbs and use the Chevy s-10 clutch.

The previous run was sold at $409.00 each, but that was with a run of 10 units.

The current run is for at least 5 units priced at $439.00

If we get more people than 5 the price should come down towards the $409 price.

Shipping will be $15 flat rate for the continental US.

I need you to post here saying you want one and possibly contact Jim at Unorthodox and let him know you want one.

I'm in for one, possibly two. Jim said that he had some people already interested that had contacted him directly. If you are on this board let us know here please. That will help keep track of how many are buying.

Thanks all!

ALan Goodwin

I talked to Jim at Unorthodox Racing yesterday. He said there is
still only 3 orders for the flywheels. He needs at least 2 more
before he will set up the machine to make them.

I will post the original message on the Classic Opel list to see
if we can get some orders from there also.

Well, Bill H. from the other list (maybe this one too) called and
ordered 1 flywheel. But said when he talked to Jim Lodding,
there were only 2 standing orders so far. I assume one is mine
and the other is Alans since he is the one that contacted Jim
about making these again.


If you want one of these made PLEASE contact Jim Lodding
at Unorthodox Racing to put in your request.

Thanks,
Tom C.

I emailed with Jim at UR today. I sent him the 5 names
I thought contacted him to have flywheels made. He said
he had 5 orders but Alan Goodwin (KarolinaKid) wasn't
on his list.

So Alan, even though you contacted Jim to get this
second run of flywheels going, he doesn't have you
written down for one. Please contact him about this.
Anyone else interested in one should put their order
in now too. Jim said since he has 5 orders he is going
to start setting up to make them.

Don't miss out on the 2nd run of these. It may take a
while to get 5 more orders to have them made again.

Thanks Tom.

I've tried to call him a couple of times since I spoke to him to get things going but got his voicemail only. I left a message and never heard back. I guess I need to call him again!

Thanks also for taking the lead on this. I have been pretty busy with a bunch of stuff.

I'm going to call him now.

All,

I just spoke to Jim. He said we now have 6 people including myself in line for the flywheel.

ETA for shipping is around January sometime and he will be calling everyone shortly to confirm you still want it and when it will be delivered. Also he's gonna want some money from you too! ;)

He also said if we get 8 people he will knock the price down to the $409 ea. price. Plus the $15 shipping.

He's going to make 10 units and stick 2 on the shelf if we get up to 8 units sold.

His contact info is in the first post. Be sure to post here letting us know you have reserved a copy for yourself.

Thanks,

ALan

I haven't heard from Jim. Has anyone else?

If we don't get any more interest I'm going to close the group buy at the end of January.

That way everyone can get their flywheels.

I was wondering the same thing last night. I haven't heard from
Jim either and was planning on calling him this week.

I'll send him an email to see what the progress is on them.

I just emailed Jim about any info on the flywheels.
Here is his reply:

"Are there any more buyers? I know we are very close to having 10 orders. If not I will start the run and start looking for payment information. Let me know and we will get them going. I was out for a while and just got back yesterday (for good reasons, I'm a new dad!) so I will get the flywheels started this week. Thanks again!

Jim "

So if you still want one, get your order in now. I am going to
email Jim back & tell him if there are no more orders by Friday
to start making them.

Thanks,
Tom C

I just talked to Jim about the flywheels. He has 8 orders
so the price has dropped to $409 + $15 shipping. They
are scheduled to be made tomorrow & could be shipped
out as soon as Friday. He is making 2 extra flywheels for
people that may contact him later. After that another 5
order minimum will be needed again.

Today is the last day for the GP. If anyone else wants a flywheel you'll need to talk to Jim on your own after today.

Has anyone gotten their flywheel?

Has anyone heard from Jim?

I keep trying to call him but get his voicemail. I haven't been contacted about payment or anything yet.
