Ehhh, I reckon he got the heads since they were on the engine and in the car a few years ago. I'm not sure if he still has the car though.

|web01_99||I know the former owner of this Dirtrackthunder.com and he never woould have treated people like this. He had merged with Midwest Motorsports and then later sold his share of the business and Dirtrackthunder.com to another Machine shop and they use the name and take calls. The original owner of Dirttrackthunder.com sells under a new name on Ebay and has a site as well i just forgot who it is.|

re: Anybody dealt with this guy on ebay? Or through Dirttrackthunder.com?
I found them to be total *****. I do not like paying 'handling fees', I'll pay shipping,packaging, but damm if I'll pay a wage for a store to send something.I don't tip grocer or bank clerks for doing their job.
Anyway I took exception to Dirts handling fees,no reply from them, so left negative feedback.Instead of trying to resolve all they did was try and threaten and insult, like that will work on me. Cisco

Killer.... Sounds to me like you have cut your time too close. I have problems regularly where someone tells me that they are shipping something and we should have it in a few days. Unfortunately, at best, you can control your own schedule. You cannot control someone else's schedule. If he had to waut to get the things from someone else, he most likely coundn't control the delivery time to him.
We regularly order parts "overnighted", just to get them in 3 or 4 days.

|1meancuda||Sales 101 would tell a person that they should always under-promise and then over-perform. Sounds like this guy has his heart in the right place, but didn't take things into account like procurement time, other operations in front of yours, the actual work itself, etc. If any one of these operations got held up for any reason, he is not going to be able to meet his schedule. I deal with sales people every day in my line of work and this really isn't an uncommon thing. They want the business, but they take too much on at one time and then their performance starts to suffer.|

... ok man what the hell is the deal...
So I called this guy last week on wednesday or thursday and he said he had the castings in, and that his machinist would have them done AND SHIPPED by friday or monday. Said he didn't answer my emails because his email was down last week (.... sounds like an excuse to me...). Well I was hoping to finish my build this weekend, drop this thing in next weekend and this guy is really cutting into myschedule. Its now been about a couple days shy of a month on this thing and I just emailed him again. 800 bucks is a big deal to me and I need to know everything is on the up and up here, and I keep getting the run around. I mean, fine, if the heads are going to take a month, tell me that from the get go, don't tell me two weeks and then not contact me, then tell me a couple days and not contact me for another week and a half, you know?
What do you guys think is going on?
|06-08-2004 12:53 PM|
well I emailed him today, common email eduquite is 24 hours for a reply. If I don't get an email by the time I get off work tomorrow I'll call him (he's an hour behind me, so I'll get off at 4pm his time).
He could be off for a couple of days too, come to think of it.
I'll let you know what he says-

|Ghetto Jet||I always use a credit card or postal money order when I buy online, or over the phone. Killer give him a call today, he won't mind, he's got your $850 he should be happy to talk to you.|

|Beenaway2long||My brother bought from them. Rated them A+. Must be he's either busy (racing season) or being held up at the supplier level.|

|Native Gearhead||You should just give him a call now. No need to wait. You got $850.00 tied up, you're entitled to a status report at least.|
