Hello Fellow Fighter Pilot! YES! The product is brand spanking new. Sent an email and waiting on response...Cant speak to Rick's Stators, but I recently bought a Forseti stator off fleabay and it was in pristine condition on arrival, looked fresh and as per the advertising image below, and seems to work after 1000km or so. Im guessing Rick's are a rewind rather than a new build?
