Donít die with them unfired, enjoy them while you can. I probably had 40 and have 6 left, lots of fun staging at the end of the rod.

I do not recall John stating that the B14s were coming back, only that they were 1) really cool, and 2) would be a nice addition to a future Estes engine lineup. I did not interpret any of that as a message that the motors WERE coming back.

Sorry to mess up everyone's BP buzz,

Yup, that jives with my recollection - I should have been a little clearer with my original post.

Firefox has a few colors, but not quite as wild of a selection as nail polish!

Lots cheaper too, unless you have to have different colors to suit your mood ...
