Did YOU custom order a color and supply every spec or just the color?

What was said, BY YOU, when you called to discuss the "issues" you have with the carb?

Did YOU drop the f bomb over and over and over?

Did YOU return the carb for corrections?

Do YOU blast each and everyone that disagrees with your "way" of doing business?

Curious,

What are the specs on the engine in your tube frame, race car that has such a radical cam that it has no vacuum and requires a 650 CFM carb?

Like to understand this one...

It is not a 650, the proform part number that TRAILERKING shows is a 1050 CFM mechanical secondaries race series carb.

Go to the proform website and see for yourself.



I did some research, TRAILERKING could show his car and give a little info if he wants to get a little more respect here.



Later, mikey

Obviously you would already know all that info seeing that you are on the inside with Bigs and know all the details of the transaction. However it was likely left out in your conversations about the removal of the (2) 750's, tunnel ram, two stage foggers all to go to a single four barrel 1050/4150 config.
On a final note.
You sir, OHD, aka On H___y D___s are an act like/know it all/r____d.

This thread is one post away from getting locked.

Any assumptions about mental states, ancestry, level of intelligence or any more digs at a person will do it.

By anyone

Thanks Bernie.

That's the same car I saw when I was looking around last night..using the detective tools in my moderators toolkit .

What kind of times are you turning with that car?

This thread has been split.

The posts that were sent to the dump are not conducive to getting a resolution between Bigs Carbs and Trailerking.

Any more posts in this thread that will not help achieve a resolution will be dumped.

That includes posts that contain sideline observations and theoretical questions by anyone not directly involved in the disputed transaction.

I will include here, a statement from one of those dumped posts that shows that Jmark is the most instrumental one here in achieving that goal.

Why? Is there more stuff you want to say? If so, please say it to the owner of the company, where it belongs. This has gone way far enough.

(1)Just keeping others informed on the reality out there.
(2)Same as #1
(3)Been there done that however that doesn't help all the other victims.
(4)It's all true and letting others know. No need to pretend it's not happening.

Ok, you've had your say and after reading 4 pages of Google articles about Big's carbs, you are the ONLY disgruntled person I found.

I'm sorry you had a bad experience but things happen. I have not found any other "victims" out there sharing their experiences, so for now, this thread is done. It serves no useful purpose anymore other than you telling and re-telling the same story.

Mark
