When are ready to release this we will let the pricing be known at that time.

Point being, he should not even be making deductions and tossing his poo around either way let alone passing stuff along of that he has no idea. There are hidden agendas in each of his posts, really just to deter customers and spread the misinformative hate into the heads of many others who just take what he types as the gospel. He is a pro at the old game of divide and conquer. There is nothing positive, constructive, technical, unbiased, or in a lot of cases true about these sorts of posts. This should go without saying, but he should spend more time in threads titled with VTT and disregard threads that say "RB, Pure, Hexon, etc". It seems quite insecure of him to constantly feel the need to berate others in their own respective vendor threads, but after 3 years of dealing with the same personality it certainly is par for the course.
Rob I agree. I just want to mention that due to Tony's ridiculous conduct, I'll be buying my posts from you or Hexon in the spring.

95% of what Tony says isn't true. That's why everyone gets mad. Above he tried to belittle the GT3RS I beat earlier in the week. Acting like it was a weak kill blah, blah, blah... According to this article the GT3RS does the 1/4 in 11.2 seconds.

http://www.carscoops.com/2015/03/por...t-911.html?m=1

Whether it's true or not, I have no idea but I can tell you it was one of the coolest cars I've ever seen in person ($175,900+) and it was the fastest car I've raced. I don't go out of my way to race because I'm having fuel issues (currently) and I'm waiting for my PI kit.

But back to Tony, I just posted the second smoking VTT car that popped up this week in another thread. It really bothers me that he pretends it's the turbos fault and takes advantage of the fact that VTT sells less turbos than RB.

What bothers me almost as much as Tony's fabrications is the fact that some people actually believe him. When I joined the forums everyone was talking about his legal problems. Then they talked about how he held their money for several years while he claimed to be building/designing his upgraded turbos. Now he spends most of his time bashing his competition or his competition's customers. He obviously feels the need to belittle others to help build himself up. Take what he did to ***** yesterday as another example. Tony made some serious accusations and gives little to nothing in the form of information to back it up. I can't imagine dealing with someone like Tony if I had his turbos and a warranty issue.

Everyone has the option to wait, or move on to a different solution....

This is the exact reason why Rob hasn't taken a penny from anyone- nobody is being held hostage from a consumer standpoint.

If anyone is being held "hostage" it's Rob- he has a large sum of money tied up in this project, I am sure he more than ANYONE wants this to come to fruition.

That being said- if you can wait, wait....if you choose not to, that's on you, it has nothing to do with a shop that "does right" by their customers, no hard ETA was given for this setup, so nobody should feel put out....

Thanks to them I will be able to drive my car after a long wait

I hope this product is efficient and reliable as expected, is not fun to fix turbos every year.


I was on the waiting list...
Sooooo you're upset that your turbos blew and the EVOs that rob never put a completion date on nor took anyone's money are not ready in time for your bad luck?

Looks to me like this person has been affected by a turbo issue, and may be updating their signature to reflect the new turbo provider they have gone with...

Why JB4? MHD + MaxBoost is more than capable. Also, what about the set for the BB giveaway?


Enjoying the new tables discovered and the XDF progress made? if you'd like. Every bit is appreciated!

There will be a rather large RB Turbo announcement the first week of November, a release so to speak, and the Super RB EVO's will certainly be a part of it (and finally be production ready).

A set went out last week, and another set this week, so there are some more sets been sprinkled around now as well.

A picture has been attached of the kit.

Thanks,
Rob
