    Has anyone ever heard of this company? They seem to have some nice stuff. I personally lean towards ORD and Echobit, but its always nice to have other places too.

    I bought his 14bff disc kit off of E-bay about a year ago...realy solid kit, excellent quality and a cool guy to deal with...I was also looking into his D60 arm for when I get a D60 to go with it....

    Their products looked pretty beefy and of high quality. Thanks for the info!

    I could have sworn this was the company Shaggy was having problems with....???

    I think it was the D60 arm with misdrilled holes, etc. I'm sure there is a thread with pics if you want to search for it, or just PM Shaggy for details.

    <font color="green"> I bought a steering arm from them and it was the biggest peice of crap I've ever seen. Completely unusable, except maybe as a paperweight. I've also heard that he has employed somewhat underhanded techniques in order to get designes for his products, but I won't go into that since I don't have the details or the proof. </font>

    I had sent an e-mail asking about parts, he sent one back asking for measurements and he would get back to me on a block for the steering to compensate for my zero rates. Well I sent the measurements and have never heard back which is good since I now have a D60 and it would have just been more parts to try and sell. Plus his prices are a little higher Parts Mike has most of the stuff he carries cheaper and better quality.
