A little more to it. I sent Ron my measurements and inquired about a seat the first week of July and it took weeks to even figure out if my Sasquatch like figure would fit in a ďtallĒ or if I needed a custom build. Once it was determined I needed a custom they had the money the following day.

The ONLY reason I didnít cancel the order was Butler already had my dimensions laid out and weíre moving forward...itís a slow part of the season for them and they were on top of the order in a matter of 4 days- 2 of those being a weekend. Kudos to Butlerbuilt!

After this seat and bracket deal Iím done with RSRT.

And another issue since Iím coming clean. The call to Butler was suggested by a friend who will remain nameless...mostly because I canít come to grips with giving Dave praise for anything 😂

Thanks to Greg Iíve met some really, really good people from this site, folks I consider good friends and Iím pretty sure have me going in the right direction most of the time.

This whole thing is sad
If any one has any questions about that subject i will do my best to answer them as fully as I Can.
Blake you have nothing to worry about. Speedtech turns out nothing but high end, quality products. Additionally the customer service is second to none. Speedtech has a solid reputation that was earned by doing things right.

Speedtech equipped cars are dominating the autocross course these days proving the product works, is well built and dependable.

Fake vid, His normal voice actually sounds like tiny Tim.

Vendor/member feed back thread is a great place on lat g to post recent or current transaction experiences.

Describe and Rate any recent or current transactions good or bad and it can serve as a resource for those lat g members about to engage in a transaction.

Transparency is always good and it gives the vendors or members an opportunity to rebuke or fix any problems that may have occurred vice versa - tough part is to post even after getting burned but doing so just helps everyone else out so kudos to Greg for doing so.

My limited experience with vendors has left me top notch transactions with dse and forgeline - highly recommend both to all

Really sorry to hear you are dealing with this Greg. Messed up deal, REALLY messed up....Hope you are able to get everything sorted out in a quick manner. Your question on "I don't know how a guy could function or sleep at night knowing he's done so many people wrong. Amazing to me -- I'd have never ever thought it!" is a great question. THANK YOU for standing up and getting this experience out there in hopes others may be saved from dealing with it themselves.

I have a plan for Dirt Missile...... Leaving tomorrow to drive back to Cali (12 hours) and drag her to a few more hours for a full damage assessment.... Motor comes out and goes back for full rebuild after 30 laps.... don't care if it's hurt or not - I suspect every square inch of the car now..... did I get what I paid for.... are they really the parts as spec'd.... is the suspension worth keeping or is it scrapped for "more normal" or graft a SpeedTech sub to the front now... IDK -- but we'll find out and just move forward ASAP.

Thank you to ALL OF YOU - (and you know who you are) - that have come forward with advice, and support... THIS IS THE REAL COMMUNITY WE HAVE.
