Ok, I'm curious why Doctorbass wants a 5404 vs 5403
He's going to use this motor for a top speed record, right, so why go with a torque/slower speed wind
Or, is Doctorbass going to start drag racing or something
Here are some questions I want to know answers to:
1) Please ask Kenny if he *currently* makes plenty of 5403 & 5404 already... maybe we can hook-on with a current production run to save time & money?
2) Have you dealt with Kenny very much or for very long
Do you know or believe you have a good relationship with Kenny now & in the past
Btw, I certainly appreciate tremendously your help...
my questions "above" are not critical of you by any means. Also, Maxwell has told me he is a shipping expert, so maybe Maxwell could help up out somehow too for North America
3) I want mine shipped by sea, since it will be far cheaper... Also, there is some confusion if Kenny will ship to individual addresses or does he ship 10 to one country's single address? Ask Kenny if he can ship the order all at once by sea, saving him a hassle by using a sea shipping consolidator (or postal service), but still ship to individual addresses when he does the order shipment. This could be a big bonus saving time & extra shipping & each motor could be considered a sample doing it that way... this would avoid duty fees & delays in customs too.
4) I will throw out ilia's name too, since I asked him if he might want to offer these 5400 motors too. He said he might be interested several weeks ago, but he had no timetable to do it. Maybe he would now?
Anyway, thank you sincerely Wojtek for helping out of your own good nature. That is very kindhearted of you to do so... You are a great guy too!

The value in buying from Methods or Justin is they take the grief when things go bad, and they do. For instance I got a batch of motors and when I say a batch I mean a container of motor in which the wrong epoxy was used EnerTrac reglued all the magnets in the complete shipment and it turns out I wasn't the only vendor who got burned with bad epoxy.
Just saying the saving seems great but so is the risks
This is an excellent point, and it is a good reason WHY we should use a proven design/motor Kenny already has made huge numbers of already... NOT a new unproven design... like this new motor he made with issues... for some few unlucky buyers...
Let's use off the shelf motors previously made already & any upgrades added should be easy & not add much to the cost or likely-hood of mistakes too!
