    We received a handful of long neck kits today (short neck is in stock). A lucky few will be receiving a tracking confirmation today.

    The good news is that as RUPES' largest distributor in the U.S., we have more headed our way than anyone else.

    The bad news, if you would like to call it that, is the shipments are coming in small batches. Today we received a handful of units.

    We appreciate everyone's patience - the wait has been killing us as well. We received a lot of pre-orders for the new iBrid System, and we will be fulfilling them in the order that they were received.

    A few of you will be receiving a shipping confirmation later today.

    Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
    That thing is sweet,my friend has one and he was detailing a Harley with it.Im gonna get one so many uses with that.

    Recieved my missing backing plates today, and got a chance to try it out. I'm not sure if this is just mine or what but very little pressure can be applied before pad will stop rotating. I'm also having an issue with the machine just stopping. Does this with the batteries and while being plugged in. Not sure what this could be. I'll be having to make another call to uses Monday.

    Was there ever a resolution for this?

    I noticed the same thing. With the rotary adapter, it works fine. Throw on the 3mm or 12mm, and I can barely touch the paint and it's almost stopping.

    That's trying with a variety of polishes (Included RUPES polishes, Sonax 4/6, CarPro Reflect, FG400, etc)

    Something is off there. I am finding that 12mm throw with the 2'' pads almost refuses to stop spinning for me. Do you still have the shroud on?

    Shroud off.

    At first I thought it was my own operational error, but even with varying my technique, I can't get pads to spin. That's when I went deeper into trying other polishes.
