We've all heard that line so many times. Guess what, if you are that damn busy something is wrong. You either don't have your priorities straight, you have poor systems, or you need to hire help. There is always the choice to say NO. I know I'm speaking Greek here. ha

It's a big RED FLAG when people are too busy.
The only reason he was “TOO BUSY” was because he couldn’t shut up.... the simplest phone call turned in to a story telling session about me, myself, and how great I was and am..... I told him this 50 times.... SHUT The F UP — answer the questions - solve the issue - make the sale... ship the product or service... plenty of time to BS when you see them at SEMA or some other format....

That should be in Sales 101, but I think a lot of people skip that class. We had a guy here that would be on a call for 30 minutes talking about who knows what and in the meantime 4-5 calls were missed. Some will call back, some won't. If the ones that do get ignored again, guess what happens?

I look forward to the day you get to take the first lap in v2.0.



Somewhere my free RSRT sema shirt is on the shelf at a goodwill store. I hope the poor bastard that gets it doesn't get cursed.


ME TOO!!! Because my one and only “stint” in the car - was a rip around the city streets behind where it was built —- and I couldn’t make it back to the shop..... because all the throttle wiring was melted....

That should have been my first clue — there were MANY....

Agree with your curse comment.... there’s a long line of folks over a number of years and businesses he’s had that haven’t faired so well.

The RIGHT sized dry sump tank installed.... This - along with proper plumbing and deleting the PCV system (idiots).... ought to actually have this system working correctly!

WTF?! You know as well as me, you don't put 2 gallons in a 2 gallon tank, so you got like a 6/7 quart system...less than a stock LS7 by 2-3 quarts. Must be some of that secret sauce race car magic I don't understand.

So not enough oil, and what wasn't being puked out of the tank breather was being whipped to a frothy sauce because of the PCV air leak. I see now why the engine is killed.

I hear via the grape juice vine that being full of Secret Sauce can cost you your business.... We used to call Secret Sauce by another word that starts with S in the old days.

So...... What you’re saying is —— maybe —- just maybe —- running 4 banger dirt track midget cars doesn’t qualify you to be the “know it all” you made yourself out to be?? IS that the Secret of the sauce??? LOL
