We have new Price points for the Freebie Discounts. The price total does NOT include shipping, tax or any Vincent or RTHO products.

$300 Order - 1 Random Color 16/18/20 ohm TFX with 15 or 19 tooth crown.

$500 Order - 2 Random Color 16/18/20 ohm TFX with 15 or 19 tooth crown.

We are making another change to the Freebies Discount Program.

 

We are slowly working through our stock of complete cars with our flat bottom brushes. Every new car is made with our NEW Notched Brushes. As part of the Freebie Program we will start using random cars as the freebie for orders over $300.  We will also randomly drop the price of certain colors and motor/gear combinations to help deplete the current stock.


7 Nov 23

 

Time for another quick update of happenings at OS3.

 

Shows

We will be at the Lehigh Valley show in Easton PA on Nov11. The following week we will be at the Parsippany show in NJ on the 19th.

 

New Items

We have a few new parts to announce.

 

- Notched CuGr brushes. These brushes are the same size as our previous brushes but are WAY more consistent in size. They are all .072" tall and have an off-center notch to firmly house the brush spring to prevent brush spinning. The notch is off-center to match the position of the brush springs on TFX and TJet chassis. As the brush spring tension is changed the position of the notch on the spring can change. By having the notch off-center the brush can be turned around to allow a much wider range of options to properly seat the spring.

 

- Machined Rear Wheels. We now have Black rear wheels that are machined vice molded. This allows the tires to sit dead flat on the wheels. There is no need to work the tires in to get them to sit flat. They are only available in Black.

 

- .895" SS Axles. We've had a run of stock TJet size axles made. They are the exact same diameter as our TFX SS axles at .0638".

 

- Body Screws. We made our own 1-72 Flat head screws for mounting the TFX chassis to aftermarket resin bodies and JL/AW Bodies. We also made a new screw that can only be found at OS3. This is our S2-56 screw. This screw has a #2 width of a 2-56 screw but with a #1 size head so it fits into the TFX chassis. This S2-56 screw fits all Aurora, Bauer and Model Motoring bodies. Now all bodies can be mated to the TFX and allow the TFX to run with the smallest diameter tires as it is packaged.

 

- Bauer 73 RSRs. We have the Red, Green, White and Orange back in stock and a full assortment of decals. We are expecting the Yellow and Blue models soon.

 

- Vincent Models. We will have a small stock of the New Vincent Chargers. We will be taking them to the shows. We are NOT advertising these on the website so to order these please email us for pricing and availability. The Chargers are available in Black, Cream and Metallic Blue. All versions are on TFX chassis.

 

- Anchors and OS3 Fronts. Our Anchors and Fronts are back in stock. In the next few weeks we should have different wheels for both to allow use of our new tires to allow a better and lower stance. Until stock runs out we will continue to stock both versions. The current versions use the Wizzard style tires but they need to be ground down to get the lowest legal stances. Check back soon to see when they are introduced.

 

- New TFX Styles. We are now offering the TFX in the Hot Chassis options of 14 ohm/15 tooth and 5 ohm/15 tooth. Both have Black Dragon magnets stock. They are available in the IROC colors and Black. There are a few other options of Lime, Silver and Orange available. We will add more color options soon.

 

- HO ALL Pro options. A lot of customers have been waiting for an option of handle and wire color to become available before ordering. There are too many options for us to be able to keep all in stock. So what we are now offering is that the Clear Handle with R/B/W wires will be the only version listed on the website. We will have controller cores ready to be completed to a customer's request via email. Handle options are Clear, Red, Blue, Yellow, Black and Purple. Wire color options are Red, Blue, Yellow, Black, White, R/B/W and now Orange and Purple. Payment via Paypal F&F always received free shipping when ordering ALL Pro controllers.

 

- In the next few weeks we will be listing a new repair part for the HO Lite controllers. The complete circuit board will be offered at $39.95. It will have all components connected including the blue pot and the transistor. All the customer will have to do is remove and replace the board and unsolder/solder the two wires. Sending in the controller for repair is no longer required. The transistor and blue pot will still be available for a less expensive repair for those able to remove and replace these components.

OS3 Customers,

 

This is just a quick note about our upcoming show schedule, website changes and other tidbits.

 

SHOWS

We will be at the following shows:

 

26 Mar - Baltimore/Aberdeen, MD show

8 Apr - Easton, PA show

6 May - America on Wheels show, Allentown (pending)

21 May - Parsippany, NJ show

 

COLORS

Some of our Multi-Color 10 Packs have changed. Crown Gears, Front and Rear Wheels still have the original 10 standard colors.  The 11/23/26T Gears and TFX Guide Pins now include Lime Green, Aqua and Mexico Blue instead of Purple, Gold and Teal.  These 3 new colors are also available in ALL parts separately. Lavender is not available separately.

 

REAR AXLE ASSEMBLIES

Our Rear Axle Assemblies are now available in .366" and ,378" sizes along with our standard size of .352"

 

HOT CHASSIS

We have decided to list some Hot Chassis for those who are retrofitting the TFX Chassis to run the 5 ohm/Black Dragon set up for HOT/Drag racing. You can now purchase a complete RTR car in this set up in Red, White, Blue, Yellow or Black.  No other colors are available.  We do not offer them with Brass gears installed and have NO plans to do so in the future.  We are also offering this 5ohm/BD set up without wheels and tires. It will come with a loose uninstalled 15T crown gear, guide pin, and either 2 SS or 2 Tungsten 1 5/16" axles for full width racing. It is available in Black ONLY.  No other custom options are available.

 

CONTROLLERS

We have been trying to get caught up with making controllers.  We have been able to keep the HO Lite in Stock and have been making the Elites to order.  We have two All Pros in stock at the moment.  We hope to get the ALL Pro and Elite in stock very soon.  If you would like to order the ALL Pro or Elite you can send us an email and pay by Paypal to reserve one.  This is the only way to get the color combo you desire.  After purchase, we will begin to make your controller.

 

Custom Orders and Discounts

We are constantly receiving requests for custom orders.  We make our items in batches and sometimes do not return to making that part again for weeks.  Custom orders would bog us down and take up way too much time.  This is not my main job and I am sent out of town a lot.  These custom requests also require special pricing which we do not wish to calculate.  (Cars without tires, install brass gears, make it with long axles, etc.)  Please understand our situation.  We offer over 150 options for RTR cars, 14 different colors, 3 different tire sizes, 5 different motors, and all the spare parts in most colors. We can't offer every option but we think our selection is quite adequate.

 

We constantly get asked for discounts.  Customers cancel orders if they don't receive big discounts for what they think are worthy orders.  We work hard to make all our items.  We stay very busy.  ALL our Chassis and Controllers are fully assembled in house by me.  Purchasing a lot of items does not reduce our labor time or cost.  I struggle to keep up with controller orders now.  Ordering 6 controllers does not reduce the time it takes to make them, it just pays less for the hours worked.  We also believe that offering discounts can cause heartburn when some customers compare received discounts. We have run into this situation in the past. 

 

In lieu of discounts we are going to offer Freebies at certain price levels.  The Freebies will be standard gifts that are not open for requests.  The Freebies are meant to help promote our products so we will be offering RTR chassis and our most common armature.  Order totals do include tax, shipping or RT products.  Wix, our web developer, will not make these freebies automatic so we will just include them in the orders.  If we happen to forget, please give us a FRIENDLY email reminder.  We are not offering these freebies to any previous orders, sorry.

 

$200 Order - 2 16 ohm Typhoons

$300 Order - 1 Black 16/15 TFX

$500 Order - 2 Black 16/15 TFX
