get legal advise and get with other members that are in the same boat, an S-corp or LLC isn't bullet proof.

Chris, I can't answer for what went down with KY-Turbo and everyone. It's a bad deal for all parties, and you all have the right to be pissed. I don't want the start of my business to end before it starts just because Im starting out in the building that KY-Turbo was in. Josh helped me build the page on FB, and sent invites to people who he knew to help me out. Josh warned me that this would getting shitty for me and RaceFab and apologized before hand. I work full time and I have been working on my car in my free time so I can use it as advertising. If I need to pack my stuff back up and find a different location so their in no affiliation between the 2 shops then I will.
Guys I can't imagine; those effected; what your going though , I know I would be pissed also.

You better move, all I can say is on Facebook josh posted the new site and his buddies said that they can't wait to see what he turns out "meaning josh" turns out. I followed it close then he deleted his face book of the old shop then his but posted that he would be doing chassis work if anyone needs it. You are not being truthful. It's a good thing I videoed the posts as proof. Once I post that what will you have to say?

how long does it take to build a kit? sounds familiar... mine originally was "oh thats a easy kit, itll be 4 MAYBE 6 weeks". 16-18 weeks later i had some pieces and a bunch of lies. listening to 10 weeks of itll only be another week got kinda funny (lol once a week i called for updates, because he kept telling me it would be done in a week lol). needless to say i got everything and never had any worries about being ripped off but i had zero trust in what was coming out of his mouth at that point. i didnt post anything on tech about my shitty experience because of all the nut swingers.... it woulda been pointless. im very happy with it now that i have it and dont have any ill feelings towards him. im over it. i guess im only posting this to get it off my chest once and for all and to realize i wasnt alone...

anyways. it is very shitty to continue to takes peoples money when you know youre going down. seems thats how all turbo companies associated ls1's end. a bunch of people outta money at the end of the line.

I thought the whole point of doing business with sponsors was the confidence of knowing you were dealing with a trustworthy company.

how about getting something together to help the people that got screwed, like the people that got together to help josh... maybe a trusted admin on this site could set something up. im sure people wouldnt get everything back, every little bit helps.

By you posting this. It basically means Josh doesn't plan to pay money back or help people get money back.

That's shitty. I got fucked by Six Speed inc. and joe (Edward) went to LMR for ever followed by now has his own shop and I'm still out my money and the physical trany I sent them.

This is terrible.

Man this sounds bad, 22000 is nuts and I personally would either be driving or on a plan to show up in person, that is crazy and I feel terrible for all of you. Hope this gets sorted out.

I'm speechless. That is all I can say. My kit took 7 months to get when I ordered it, but other than the wait I had no issues. I know better now. I've been taking my business to Turbo Joe aka [email protected] aka ttransam. And to think I was going to call Josh up about a month ago to order a pt7675. Glad I didn't go that route.
