If you've been linked/re-directed to this page - this information was only applicable to the early air shipment of these kits, and they are now a regular-stock item.


Fri. July 5:

Sold Out.


Wed. July 3, 15:30

We have received the 2 replacement kits today, and these are now the last ones in stock with us until the regular container makes it to North America.


Mon. 23:00

We're tentatively sold-out, although one last kit may become available again on Tuesday.


Sun. 17:00

The last two kits are now available...


Sat. 19:30

We were able to take care of the two people on the waitlist today. As of this posting, there are 2 kits left at the store; whatever is left tomorrow at closing time will become a fair game. There's nobody lined up right now so email us if you're interested. Invoices (if any) will be sent Sunday at 17:00EST and you will have until noon Monday to pay. Then we work down through the list if necessary.


Fri. 23:30

As of Friday night, we are nearly sold out - one kit is still available to anyone, anywhere. We are reserving the last 2 kits for the retail store for the weekend. Any further orders will be placed on a waitlist. If there are any Corsairs left on Sunday afternoon, we will start sending invoices to people on the list.

Couple notes regarding inventory: one of the pre-ordered kits *may* become available at some point on Saturday; also, we were missing 2 kits in our shipment, so we *may* be able to get replacements for them early in the week, if the supplier has them.

We'd like to thank everyone for the interest, orders, and quick payments. It was a busy but fun day. All of the orders were processed and handed over to Canada Post. Tracking numbers were provided for all of the mail orders.


Fri. 14:30

Kits are in stock as of 2pm Friday. After pre-orders and earlier orders, there are still a few left... As a side note, the export version comes with a clear cowling option.
