Yes you can still buy parts. Look under General racing or go to nmpra.org to get the story.

the current profi is similar to the Nelson SS, I don't doubt that they are capable of putting out a motor that would be competitive with LS Jett or Nelson, but the current offering is not.

Hopefully they will get there so we have more than one supplier of competitive engines.
