I don't really know anything about that.. It seems he got his car back idk.. Sounds like a totally different scenario to me, but @RichWVU is a little cryptic in his response, so I don't know how to make sense of what he said. It sounds like he's trying to defend Jim and that's fine... I'm not making a case against Jim personally, but you can't defend the way he's conducted business regardless of the excuse.I'm pretty sure Rich was the one who had his car sent to Maine and was paying for everything to have Jim try to figure out DCT conversion for us all.
Robbing peter to pay Paul... this is exactly what I expected to be the case, but it's not some unfortunate thing that happens to a good person. You have to make a willful choice to take the $20k someone just gave you and use it to pay your bills or whatever rather than providing the service your customer has paid you for. So, the willful misuse of customers' money as well as the willful neglect of communication with the customer is borderline fraud, if it isn't outright.The issue is. It becomes a snowball effect where you are robbing Peter to pay Paul, lying to customers to buy time for other customers, etc.
This - I've bought a bunch of stuff from both of you guys over the years and have always received prompt responses over email and what not, especially when dealing with delays etc, or just logistic of shipping bulky sh!t (I think you sold me the red back seats?) The radio silence is telling, far more than anything else.I was being politically correct with my message. And I would say I agree with you 100% in the message you shared. The problem is. When the previous work flow funds are spent. It is difficult to suspend any further incoming sales in order to get cash flow to pay for the old outstanding work orders. I think we all can read between the lines of what you and I are both saying. The only thing that is worrisome is the fact that there has been no response from Jim which concerns me due to the fact that he typically posts very long responses and I would have thought he would nip this in the butt the day it was posted.
Issue is _ something as simple as $1000 rod bearing sale can open up what I believe is north of a $60,000 can of worms worth of issues if you figure the other two outstanding stroker builds that were paid for years ago and those people have shared their information with me as well as David did who is the third guy of the 3 strokers. This figure is aside from the money I am owed it you add them all up it is six figures.
Glad to hearI received a message from Jim today. He's processed a refund for my order and I'll hopefully see those funds return within a couple days. I appreciate his honesty with me. At this point, I can't necessarily recommend for or against purchasing from Fast Attack Motor Sports. I can only recommend that, whatever you do, you establish and maintain a clear and reliable line of communication up front before making your purchase and I hope that Jim will, likewise, make that a bigger priority as well.
My 20K advance was a big reason why people were able to get parts during that time. That's obvious from the threads but just to be clear, you can thank me.I'm so glad that it was just because he was "at sea". So glad that it was just a simple "miscommunication." Lol. Jesus guys.
