3  ATLMA General / ATLMA Rules & Info / Changing things up a bit! on: December 25, 2010, 01:34:53 PM
So after some discussion, we've decided to change things up a bit here on the forum!

The first thing you'll notice is that we've done away with the classifications & classification rules. We still have safety rules for ATLM builds, and forum rules like everywhere else - but we're trying out something a bit different. We're now focusing more on cool off-road builds, and less on building for a class.

You should also notice we have some new boards and we've re-organized the forums! Now you have a section to post your other interesting projects & builds, whether it be restoring a vintage snowmobile or heavily modifying your vehicle - that's what the new board is for!

If you have any suggestions or comments, post them in this thread.

6  Miscellaneous / For Sale/Wanted / Blue Lightbars & Controllers on: April 27, 2010, 08:39:32 PM
I recently bought a surplus of many many many Whelen Edge 9000 9M 8 strobe lightbars &  Federal Signal Jetstrobe 10 strobe lightbars from the Vermont State Police after they upgraded their fleet to LED lightbars. The Edge 9000's are the computer controlled "diagnostics bars" and come with the PCDS-9 controller that was programmed specifically for the bar. The Jetstrobes come with a Federal Signal Unitrol Omega 9000 switchbox Since these were used by VSP the lens configuration for all are the same, with all blue lenses and rear amber flashers. From the research and Googling I've done, the diagnostics bars seem to be quite rare, and were purposely built & programmed for the Ohio Highway Patrol & Vermont State Police by Whelen.

Lightbars have been restored to full working condition, and lenses have also been restored to like-new condition. Mounting feet are included, and in *most* cases gutterless mounts are also included.

I'm looking for $400 for the Edge 9000 bars and $250 for the Jetsonic bars shipped to the 48 states.

9  Miscellaneous / Off-Topic / DO NOT BUY FROM!!! on: July 06, 2009, 01:00:58 PM
Do not buy anything from motobatteries! These guys are a bunch of idiots.

I purchased a battery from them for my XL100s a week an a half ago. They have refused to ship it out because I didn't give them a physical address. According to them, they've sent me multiple messages asking for one. For one, they're a bunch of liars. They sent me ONE email and I responded to it within minutes of receiving it (I have the emails to verify this). In all communication with them, they're been rude and have had one of those "we're better than you, your a customer and you can go screw off" attitudes.

I sent them my physical address AGAIN (with the email attached to it that I originally sent to them with my physical address). Surprise, surprise, they were rude once again and told me that they were sending me the battery without the acid pack (which renders the battery USELESS - it's nice that these jerks are so spiteful).

I'm happy that I paid with PayPal, because I've opened a dispute against their joke of a company. It's been almost two weeks now that I ordered the battery, it should have taken a few days to get here (FL to VT is 1-2 days VIA ground MAX). If you're too illiterate to read your email, you shouldn't be attempting to run a company.

This was the worst customer service I've dealt with in a long time.

I'm thinking about wiping out the Project Builds forum. It seems that we only have two people that have completed builds: Steelman & Ryf. I have yet to finish a single mower (Stupid truck taking up all of my time), and it seems that all the builds have died.

14  All-Terrain Mowchine Setup / Research & Development / Skis & Tracks for wintertime! on: January 28, 2009, 09:28:20 AM
Anyone ever consider doing this? I went to my girlfriend's house last night and took one of my mowers to try this out on. I have a pair of vintage snowmobile skis that I'll be adapting to mount in place of the front wheels. I'm going to fabricate some sort of track system for the rear out of some snowmobile tracks.

I'm going to be doing something similar to this:
