    Hey everyone I just wanted to let you know that we will not be taking any new orders as of friday the 9th for approximately 2 weeks while we revamp our shop. We started to run into the problem of getting too big, too fast. As a result our lead time has been horrible and we realized there is quite a few things we can change to address this problem. With all the orders coming in we haven't had the time to make the changes.

    If you have a pending order with us don't worry, we are shipping all orders before we do any in-house work. Our first priority is to get out everyones parts as quickly as we can.

    Our goal with this is to cut down our lead times and get you your products faster.

    Thanks for your understanding.

    Sounds like a very stand-up prudent thing to do. Rather than keeping a runaround visious cycle.

    I haven't done any business with you but that sounds like the smart thing to do.:waytogo:
    On another forum I used to read there was a guy that was selling drivetrain and suspension parts to members at cheap prices but got so far behind in it, thanks in part to his cheaper than cheap prices, that he eventually had to stop selling the stuff, work his primary job to pay people back, and eventually even left that forum due to hard feelings.
