22 March 2018 - Railmaster DHB27-8 speaker added to the store! This speaker has a bit bassier sound than the 28mm railmaster, and can fit in a smaller diameter, as it is not only 27mm instead of 28mm, but the small rear extrusion (for the magnet) allows the chassis to be designed to clamp onto this, so that the speaker just floats inside the hilt.
To learn more and add it to your cart, grab the speaker here.
17 March 2018 - Sales are now back on! This includes all boards, including Igniter 3. IntelliBlade remains out of stock, stay tuned for more on that.

9 March 2014 – The MaxAmp™ is here! To get more details about this super powerful audio amp that still can run on a single 3.7v lion battery, see the IRA release thread here. When you are ready to buy this little amp, you can go here.
While this is an amazing amp and I’m sure many will like it, it should be noted that currently surface mount soldering is required on the Igniter Mini™ and Spark™ boards to get this to work. Thus, make sure to buy this only if you are an advanced installer or you are going to send it to a trusted smith to install.

That’s 2 Red, 2 Green, and 2 Royal Blue LEDs on one compact LED!!!! To see more details about this LED, go to the release page on the IRA here.
Also, we have received more stock of Igniter Mini™ and Spark™ boards! Due to the supplier getting behind boards were sold out for longer than expected, but fortunately they are back now.
