In all honesty you didn't say which Monday/Tuesday did you?

So how's the progress? I've been out of the country for the last week and hoped there would be an update when I got back.....


Never mind, 729 unread emails, hadn't read yours yet. How fucked is that? one week off the "net" and 729 things I have to do something with. I wonder how many hours a week that equates to? Time to drop off the grid.

Just letting you guys know that everything is going out alright. I'm doing my best to get everyone the units there on Friday. This, the adaptronic group buy, and the frame rail group buy all came to shipping at the same time, so I've been processing about a 100 orders over the last 3 days. YIKES!

I'll get pictures up soon... promise!

The last of the units will be out as of the next coming Monday including international orders (they have been spalayed over the week as I had to build quite a few harnesses) so if you don't get your units by Wednesday then there is a problem and you need to contact me. I've had address changes and so fourth, and although I've tried my best to keep accurate records the protraction of this group buy has made it difficult on both you guys the customers in waiting for sucha long time to get the product and for me in keeping track of everything.

As we bring this to a close, I just want to give my heartfelt thanks to everyone who supported me, and was patient with this whole fiasco. All benefits extended via email to the original purchasers are valid after the units are delivered so if you ever need anything just let me know.

Great update, Travis; Just wondering if you do in fact have my correct address, due to the miss-communication and refund issue and such. Let me know if everything is squared away. Thanks, can't wait to see these!

Default Harness

Some units are still going out. The harnesses are moving pretty slow on me. Sorry I haven't been around, my house has turned a non-stop COP shop finishing up everything. I need to get back to work to fill these orders out today. Attached is a picture of the harness. I'll have 5-8 out by airmail this evening.

Best,
Travis

I've shipped out 4 thus far. Its pretty much been the worse three months of my life. Got into this deal, rainbows and sunshine on function. Scooped over mounds of cash on the perfect design before ... [mod note: internal business issue specifics removed at the request of one of the involved parties]. Since then I learned electronics, learned how to design circuits, wire looms, contracted a workforce at my shop and abroad, tracked down these crazy connectors from indo-china as I was recently cut off from the supply ( and had to use these connectors he selected because I had already ordered thousands of dollars of housings to fit these connectors) I know you guys got a raw deal on this thing, and I'm sorry but damn I've got black circles under my eyes from working so much to get this put together.

Huge group buys if you haven't noticed to pour even more money into the COP project to move it faster to take care of you guys. I think within the next week it should be done, but I don't know what else to do on it. I was left high and dry and I'm a mechanical engineer. This stuff isn't exactly what I have any specialty in so it has been one hell of a struggle to fulfill my end of the bargain and not just default on all this stuff because the orders I already had in were used in the thousands on the perfect design I paid for which was lost when he jettisoned as well as the housings, and coils that had to be bought in baulk. I didn’t have the cash flow to just refund everyone because of the 10k that was invested in getting this thing moving.

Alas this thing is almost over and quite frankly I now understand why other aftermarket companies end up with late deliveries all the time. I think you just have to own one to understand how something can get stretched like this has. Despite getting no sleep, having no luxuries, working for basically pennies on the hour for hours on end , you have to remind yourself that the customer needs what he needs, all while he’s yelling at you as if you can do more than work 16 hours a day to fulfill the orders. This has been a living hell. As for you guys once again thanks for sticking along for the ride.
