Mark, did you run yours with a Zeel or just use the HPI system as is?

Thinking hard about the HPI for the Kart Track Racer project bike.

I can email Benji to see when the next order of them will be coming in, not sure if they have yet. But if there is enough interest on the forum, then I bet you Benji will get some in stock for us!

Unfortunately I did not read the previous posts on the pros & cons of the Powerdynamo vs. the HPI ignitions.

Would anyone mind discussing that? The HPI looks like it may reduce the weight at the end of the crank substantially.

Thank you.

"Hi Quoc,

We can have those back in about 2- 3 weeks.

Yea, we've seen the thread. We'll have to keep a few of these in stock since we've been getting requests for them due to that thread. Pretty cool!! -Dana"

Got an email from treatland

They are probably swamped with tons of emails and orders due to the recent sale they are doing.

You can order direct from HPI for around $250 + shipping from Belgium.

Are these plug and play? Can you use the stock 400 coils, regulator and rectifier with these?

when all is said and done, treatland is cheaper. I quoted both ways last year, they beat em by 40 or 50 bucks. 

No, not plug and play/ its a complete system like any cdi setup. there will be changes in wiring , quite a bit.

Does HPI or Treatland offer support or instructions?

The HPI obviously has a lighter and smaller diameter rotor than MZB/Powerdynamo/Vape. But how much does it build axially? With my Powerdynamo, the round alternator/ ignition cover could almost have been replaced by a flat plate. I may actually turn a shallow cover from 12 mm alloy plate one day...
