Anyone tried to buy a msd dizzy of late ??
Just looking to buy a msd dizzy for a motor, the Pro billet one not the ready to run vac style, the part number off another i have is MSD-8589 that i previously bought from summit racing , but they have completely vanished from the US market Jegs Summit racing etc ? whats that story as i see Aussie ebay guys are still selling them ? Only for sale through Aussie dealers ? Or have they simply just changed the part number, anyone know ? cheersBe a innovator not a imitator.

not sure if anyone is interested, but i contacted Summit regarding not being able to buy the holden billet msd distributors they once sold and they said MSD wont supply them anymore, i tried to contact msd on several occasions regarding the issue, they only responded to me once i posted the question on there forum. So they have now confirmed they have helped rocket monopolize the market on these distributors. from paying $240 odd from summit and now $390+ from rocket. i should probably stick to chevs...

Yeah, they are all gone, you can get mallorys but they cost $390 before the shipping ....

The reason they're only available through Rocket is that they were specifically made for Rocket in the first place. Rocket did the development on them with MSD and had to commit to buying large volumes of them to justify MSD making them in the first place.
Bottom line is if Rocket didn't do the work in the first place the MSD Holden dissy's wouldn't exist. It's easy for Summit, Jegs, etc to just put their 5% on and sell it when they didn't have to develop it, they don't have to stock it and they don't have to pay GST when they import it.
Disclaimer: I know about this stuff because I'm a long term employee of Rocket.
