I would like to announce the first locations you will be able to purchase our tires. As you have read Unilli will primarily focus on being a regional tire for the short term so we can focus on how best to bring this product to the racers nationwide. Most of these locations are centered around the location of our track in Kershaw , SC which is southeast of Charlotte , NC.
That being said we have had many calls from racers in all regions still wanting to purchase our tires. To those racers please be patient as we get our shipping and other operations in place to handle those orders. I know many of you have called Brian or myself by phone. If he or I have not got back to you we will shortly.
You may also contact one of these reps , and they may ship to you directly. We choose to work with these people first for a variety of reasons. Those included people who race at Hanging Rock , and people who could give us feedback to better serve our customers. Our partners have many years of experience as racers and their knowledge will help our racers to be competitive on the track.
Feel free to tap into that knowledge, by doing so you will gain valuable insight into what it takes to compete at the top level of karting. As you decide where to purchase Unilli tires I would like to also remind you these guy's are professionals and with the cost savings you will enjoy ,you should consider letting these guy's do your tire work for you.
It may be time for you to consider the safety aspects of your tire program , or perhaps you keep spending money on every tire prep on the counter. You may really be having a hard time finding time to do those tires. Friends may I suggest an alternative , tap into the resources we will be providing free, develop a relationship with these guy's ,tap into the experience they can give. These partners will be running the tires and will be able to help you in detail in the coming weeks.
We hope to better serve all of our customers as we move forward. We are working hard to rework our operation and will be improving as we press ahead. To the many racers who have commented on what we have done we appreciate you passion for karting. We hope as we move forward we develop a relationship with our racers that will help them be competitive on the track and save them cash too.
Racing is only fun when you can be competitive. We hope you will give us a look the next time you purchase tires . Thanks Randy Brown

Mike Robinson -- 704-545-8080 Mint Hill NC
Mike and I have been friends for over 20 yrs , it is he who first helped me set up a kart. With Mikes help 20 yrs ago I was able to find my way to the winners circle a few dozen times over the years. Mike will be leading up our out of state sales and by the end of this week he should be able to start shipping out orders to our customers out of this region.
Please be patient as we get Mike up and running . We are confident Mike will be able to help with your order and answer all you questions about this product. Mike will be in constant communication with our tire experts and will be available to share all the secrets with our customers.
This is our first list of partners with Unilli Tires. In the future we will be adding more locations that you may purchase our tires. We appreciate your patience as we set up this network. As you can see we are progressing towards a transition and are building up a network of partners to help us improve.
Over the next few weeks as we take the tire to the track ,we will learn many things about this product. If there are defects that we are unaware of we will correct those mistakes. If you purchase a tire and are not happy with the performance or you are not sure of the right track you should compete at , give us a call or drop us a line.
We will work very hard to serve our customers who purchase this product. It is your input that helps us to develop and improve on our product. Though we have many experts to help with our tire , it is you the local racer who can help us the most. We ask that you give us a chance to try and bring this low cost tire to your area.
We know from experience that it will not be the product alone that will bring success to what we do, it will be our customer service to you that will make the difference. If we are slow to respond now , please do not give up. We are working very hard to get all the things in place to give great customer support.
Most distributors choose to depend on the dealers for customer support, we are going a step further by communicating directly with the customer as the distributor. It is this extra layer of customer support that we feel will make our tire the tire of choice for many tracks across the country in coming months.
Thanks for all the feedback we have gained by this thread, we are now ready to move forward and put this tire on the track. Remember this Saturday Feb 14th Fastrax Speedway will be having a free entry class paying $200 to win.
We will be scoring that race and I myself will come out of retirement in order to participate in the Unilii class. It will give me a chance to further my knowledge of the product we are bringing to the racers. Thanks and look forward to racing soon. Randy Brown
