Wow.
1) Josh = President of RaceFab
http://apps.sos.ky.gov/ImageWebViewe...spx?id=5307792


2) Administrative Dissolution on Sept 11, 2012 - He knew this was happening 3 months ago.

3) Racefab = another "name" for Ky-Turbo


Sounds like RaceFab is responsible for everyone who got screwed. Who's president of RaceFab? Oh... right... See #1 Above..

Josh is no longer a sponsor so I don't see why they would lock it now.

Just seems too convenient.



People that get convicted of fraud get convicted of mail and wire fraud because when you make phone calls and mail documents that contain false information, mail fraud. Since the mail system is Federal the FBI has jurisdiction any phone calls to insurance co. Or customers that are documented are federal offenses. The FBI lives for this type of investigation.

People who have documentation need to take this to the federal level. Unless he declared bankruptcy, something has to be done here.

Well luckily, that's not what he was doing. He decided to keep the doors open in hopes that he could work his way out of the situation, completing everyone's vehicles in the process.

And Josh... pretty ******* shitty of you to pawn off the return of peoples property on to someone else.

If anyone has anything there theyd like secured and returned... just let me know. Id be glad to help.
There is not a building at his house. He expressed a desire to build one months ago, but he was unable to due to the obvious financial situation.

As a one man operation, he can only take on so much work. If he took on every little job, there would just be more pissed off customers without anything to show for their money.

Well hurricane Issiac came and flooded my car. Now it's totaled and I have no car or kit. I told josh all of this and wanted a refund or the kit so I can sell it to get my money back. I was assured everything was fine and that it would take time. That's in September!!! How long does it take to build a kit? Now after a month of him not calling me back I see this **** posted. I could go on about what I really know but won't. I just hope people don't fall for his new business that he personally told me two months ago he was going to get in the chassis game. Hint the new name for the business. Some how he is affiliated with it unlike what Ryan said, it was his business. Don't fall for it and tell other boards what he has done.
Why in the hell would an engine builder need a turbo kit to build a motor? That is about the most ludicrous thing I've heard in my life. You know why? I had a motor built long before I got in touch with Josh.

There are two sides to every story. 75% of the people posted in this thread don't have a ******* clue, and are basing opinions on what people are saying, when those people can't even formulate a coherent sentence.

That business is shot thanks to this thread. RaceFab's success was everyone's only hope at receiving the work they had previously paid for. So great job.

If anyone has been to his shop after the break in you would see empty beer cans all over the place. Now is that how you run a business? No like I said before there are things people don't know about and will keep quiet until legal action takes place.
And the parts purchased with that money were stolen, as is the case with a few people, including myself. If you didn't like how he ran his business, then why would you fork money over to him? That makes ZERO sense.

The point of an inside job is to collect insurance money, and Josh had no insurance. What would the point in this be? If there is one, please enlighten us all and I will drastically change my tone. Until that occurs, your speculation means precisely dick.



Truth be told, I am in the same boat as many of you. I began speaking with Josh while I was still deployed in Iraq. We shot some messages back and forth and decided what the game plan was. I arranged to have my car taken to his shop. While admittedly, my car did sit for a long time, I was 6,000 miles away and my car was not at the top of the list to get done, which is totally logical.

Fast forward to the break-in, I am now stateside again. The only thing missing from my build was my turbo. Seeing first hand just how much **** went missing, I knew that everything was going to slow down drastically. At that point, I could've demanded to get my money back, but what good would that do? A guy with no insurance just lost thousands in assets that weren't his, that he now has to attempt to cover. I spoke with Josh multiple times after this while fiasco. He told me that things would be taken care of, but the time frame was shaky at best.

At this point, I decided to downsize my build. I moved from the single 91mm, to twin 62s, eventually settling on the single 76 that Josh delivered to me just last week. If my car complete? No. Will it be tomorrow? Nope. But I bet you'll see me at a few LSx events next year rocking a KYTP setup. Patience is a virtue.

Your perspective is skewed slightly IMO since you got basically what you wanted. Some people in this thread have NOTHING to show for their money.

He ATTEMPTED to keep the shop open. Yes, it was a risky move that ultimately backfired, but he did make the attempt. Maybe you should read my statements a few times so that you can fully understand the entirety of my message. Attempting to pick nits will ultimately get us nowhere and continue the utter lack of productivity displayed throughout this thread.
