Happy New Year from all of us at WCM Racing! We are looking forward to a great 2018! 2017 was a good year for us both on track and on the books. We have sold many cars, parts and helped quite a few new racers join the great sport of quarter scale. Most of all though, we made new friends and had fun doing what we love. We hope to continue that trend in 2018!
On a personal note, bringing in a new year always represents new beginnings, and from time to time a new begining is exactly what is needed. This past year I have been pretty quiet, online and at the track, but I am looking forward to changing that. WCM is not some large corporation, but is a little company run by a father and son as a labor of love and sometimes its a lot to handle. We do the best we can balancing everything, but sometimes its just not enough, so for that I apologize. I have a loving and supportive wife with a very demanding schedule of her own and a 2 year old boy that keeps us on our toes. Frankly, they are and will always be my first priority. I also work a full time job and have been dealing with some health issues this past year, so 2017 has been a year of learning, patience and balance. We are all always learning and growing and WCM is no different. I intend to learn from this past year and grow as a person and as a company.
In other news, I feel that a little explanation of doing business with WCM is an order. First of all, we are an internet company. Aside from track support, our entire infrastructure is designed around our website and all orders must be processed through the site to keep our books straight. We sometimes get people that say they don't do the internets... well I assure you that if you can use Facebook, you can use our website and help is always an email or text away. Which brings me to my next point, the phone.... yes its obvious that we are very hard to get on the phone, hell we have even had other manufacturers make fun of us for it (yes we know about that), but the fact of the matter is that since WCM is not our full time job, we have to make concessions and balance our time. If we were to take every call that people make or want to make, it is all we would do, nothing would get done. I have oft heard that we are impossible to get ahold of because we don't answer the phone... that is simply not true, in fact there are more methods to contact us than ever before. We are quite responsive to Facebook messages, email, my personal Facebook profile, text messages, smoke signals etc. So if you say you can't get ahold of us, well you simply aren't trying the preferred methods. When you do message us too, please remember that its me on the other end.... not some corporate response center, but me, a person, with feelings, who is doing the best he can. So long story short, email or text with questions, be nice, place your orders on the website and all is good.
The Storm..... I get multiple messages, calls, emails and texts daily about the Storm body and its status. I have even had people spew hate over a toy car body, which though unappreciated, it is understandable for the Storm is the best looking body out there and man does it work well. Long story short, we have encountered about every problem that one could in the production process, but we don't have any quit in us. I'm sure some of you have heard rumors, or even started your own, but the Storm body is not going away an it will be back in time for the season. We have taken the mold process to the next level and hope to have the best parts yet. The last update we got from the factory is that production should start later this month. If the parts meet our standards we will be making announcements on all of our platforms as soon as we have them ready to ship. They will be sold on the website on a first come first serve basis.
New stuff, or gimmicks if you are so inclined... We at WCM love innovation and new parts. Last we checked we were racing and racing breeds innovation. We are constantly talking to our racers and thinking about how to improve our cars. I was pretty quiet with new stuff last year, but we have some new designs and things to try for 2018 and I am looking forward to it. And please remember that anytime you order a car from WCM it comes with the latest and greatest we have to offer.... Ahem, no upgrades required as some might like to think.
Out of stock items... We are working hard to restock items that we are out of. As with anything production takes time and the quality that you have come to expect from WCM takes even longer. Will will be making posts and announcements on our blog and Facebook as things come in.
