makro racer coil
« on: March 22, 2017, 17:06 »
Gday guys  just wanted to give a bit of a wrap to Makro,I have had the racer for nearly two years and the coil has started to play up by going into overload when the gain goes above 74 in 2 tone and all metal mode its ok on 3 tone and beach mode it seemed to be a temperature issues  it only happened in the morning and then got better as the day went on ,
Anyway I fired off an email and video to Makro hoping for a bit of advice ended up I received a new racer 2 coil and skid plate by express post from Turkey you cant get much better service than that Cheers Makro I'm very impressed.
P.S the new coil is balanced a lot better than the old one as the lugs are more towards the middle of the coil.

They did have a few issues with some of the earlier Red Racer coils, looks like you might have one of that original batch.  All good now with the latest versions, haven't had any issues with mine so far - touch wood.  Good to see Makro resolve the issue promptly. ;)
