How??? By telling him to torque a nut and washer down tight enough to bring the offending lug(s) into alignment?? Not only will that serve to elongate the hole in the hub but it will stretch the lug and weaken it. So.... if Jay follows Street Beast's el-cheapo method one of these days he could be cruising down the road and have a lug or lugs break which could easily cause a rim to separate from the car, possibly at speed.

The good news is that Street Beast's solution to this problem has now been documented, and if something like that happens Jay's lawyers will have plenty of undisputed evidence that Street Beast told him to use an unsafe procedure to correct a simple defect in their kit.

Way to go!

Centerline,

I think we're putting the cart before the horse here. Nobody's suing anybody.

No need.

If in fact if the solution is to swap it out once we get the opportunity to look at it, we will. I did mention earlier that pictures of the rotor will be posted.

Please be patient and Thank you for the concern.

Jay K.

Jay K This is all about customer service. Streatbeast had the opportunity to redeem themselves, and have not shown themselves to correctly take care of the situation at hand. Instead they instructed you to use a "washer and inverted nut" to attempt a proper repair. The proper repair would have been to send you a replacement, at no questions asked.

In my book this would be like buying a big screen TV from Sears, and having a problem with the battery cover on the remote. Do you think they would instruct you to use "super glue" to keep it attached? No they would replace it with a new one.

Just My Opinion;

Stephen

Maybe someone ought to (1) check his IP to see if it's another SB rep, or, (2) see what is really in that pop bottle

What part of that "We will replace repair or do whatevers neccessary to fix Jays problem, " Dont you understand? I find with this thread that you keep asking questions, you get answers, but keep rehashing the same ole stuff on and on and on

The Bayliner reference was made earlier in this thread as a put down of Street Beast, albeit a poor attempt.
Bayliner builds good boats, but they are entry level boats and will never reach or hold the value of, say, a Mastercraft or Ski Nautique.
But without Bayliner and companies like them many people could not afford to get into water sports, you would be suprised at how many tournament skiers I've met that started with a lowely Bayliner, they eventually moved into a higher class boat.
In that context you could use them as a reference to Street Beast, but not as a put down.

The Bayliner put down is an elitist attitude that if you can't afford to buy the best, don't buy anything.

We aren't making fun of where he's from..... we just don't like people who act like they're on something or don't tell the truth.

Actually he posted in his user profile that he is from "indiana".

No one is making fun of where he is from. What we are talking about is that he lied when he posted that he is from "indiana" in his user profile and that the computer he is working on is in Canada. What else is he lying about???
