Have not looked at the Thrasher site lately. It used to state they don't sell Thrasher chips but it gave the email of Scott Simpson and Russ Salerno as distributors. It is a long story as to why they don't sell them. Skipping the story, the designer of the chip basically gave the rights to distribute the chips to these two guys with the understanding that they could make only minimal profit on the distribution. More of a public service gesture, not to mention a "screw you" to a rival chip maker.

Once again, this is the info on Thrasher Chips, Note the types of injectors that the chips are available for.

Far as I know from the list above which Scott wrote not so long ago, there is no chip for 50s.

Scott is usually pretty quick to respond unless he is out of town.

Can't say enough good things about Scott Simpson. He's basically supplying Thrasher chips for his cost. Just drop him an e-mail with the chip you want (See Steve Wood's reply above) and you're in business. But check first to see if a chip is available for the msd 50's.

I can't speak for Russ Selerno, but he told me in an e-mail a few months ago that he was about out of the raw materials to make any more chips.

I'm the current and proud owner of Russ's TTA. He sure took good care of it for me :)

Just read a post by Scott on the other board that said he'd be out of pocket until after 7 Jul....

I just recieved my Thrasher in the mail today from Scott. He sent me the same list that Steve posted when I emailed him about buying one last week. I used Paypal which made the purchase real easy. :)

Once again. Thrashers don't normally come with in a 50# version.

We gave you Eric Marshall's name who posts here under the name of Eric Stage One and others in prior posts. Here is his site again. http://www.turbotweak.com
:)

Any vendor that you choose to call can provide a chip burned by someone.

No one. The Thrasher chips are originally designed for stock (28#) or Blue Top (36#) injectors. The 50# Thrasher chip came about when I modified a stock Thrasher chip. It's not supported (or possible even known) by Thrasher or their distributors. The 50# chip worked ok but I wouldn't recommend using one if you did happen to find one. It's no secret, any chip burner can simply change the injector constant in the EPROM and whalla..

also,usually when i'm on this site ,a column will come up after a few minutes .this colunm comes up on the left of my screen and has different selections ;one selection is the "VENDOR'S INDEX" we'll yesterday i wanted to get it to come up so,i could contact some chip burners but it never came up and today it hasn't either.
