Been trying for over a week. They did call the shop Monday while I was at lunch. I returned the call but again I got the recorder. Today the message states that their mailbox is full......

I bet that DA 75 is gonna be realeased at the trade show, gosh, it really needs to come out soon,

On the Tucson shootout dvd didnt they say they were gonna realease 3 new engines in 2006 and one in january!!!!!

Thats just what I heard from them on the dvd though.

and its not like I have the money to buy the 75 anyways but I will if it ever comes out.

Last we heard from Dave, there is no interest in making selling
the 75 sized. Guess we'll have to wait and see, but I doubt it.

My money says no 75cc. Why would you want to be third on the "list"of this size engine. I could see a 83-85- 87cc size of engine so that they could keep their status in the market place.

Well they are DA, and people would buy their 75 over just about any other engine. The only competitor I see is the ZDZ 80.

What about that great service I hear about DA! They should answer the phone. I have had the same problem the few times I called them. No excuse for not answering the phone to support customers, and future customers. The trade show should not occupy everyone's time. Scott

But out of the 5 guys working there I bet one is on the benches working on engines, 2 on the phones answering calls "like a million of them", one is shipping things and running around and one is chasing down and packing for the show...

THey are not some Big Factory that has a ton of employees, but they will take good care of you...im inpressed how great of service they offer considering how many people they handle...

Think what you want, I will keep my DA any day of the week...and if they dont jump through hoops to take care of me at the drop of a hat, oh well I will wait...and chatch em' later on...

My email was answered within 30 minutes by way of a phone call...at their expense. Prop I needed was in stock, and I was told it would be shipped same day. I have always had great service from DA, and initially put up this thread for some explanation as to the reason why they weren't answering the phone. I got my answer......... and it sounds perfectly reasonable to me.........


Best regards,
Ron Ballard

My sources tell me that DA is taking orders from dealers for the 75 and 200.
