Silence! Genius at work! If you're so blessed, one day you will have some shocks too!

Have you emailed or called John and weekend-racer.com? That's who you're supposed to email.

Dude havent you heard? It was under my impression that everyone had heard.

B-b-b-ber-ber-ber-b-bernie's the word!

Get off his back man! He's busy working on real customer's cars. Like, race cars. You ******* wait until its your turn and don't bother him in the meantime.

Seriously though. I think its complete bullshit.

Wannafbody, seriously, STFU. Don't you understand? Other people's shocks are more important than yours. You are being unreasonable.

You all need to be thankful that Bernie @ Steward Development blessed you with the privilege of giving him your money and guessing when you'll actually get something for said money.


lol


On a serious note: when is someone going to grow some ***** and sue him already? There's like 10+ threads or some ridiculous number of people with no money and no product and not a single update or response.

I guess Emilio and others should just start scamming people too because they're "too busy at the race track" to respond to emails/calls or send out a product that was paid for? **** is ridiculous

Yes, I emailed and called John a couple different times-he didn't respond to my last email.

The Xidas look like a great shock but I already spent money on the springs, sleeves and top hats. It's frustrating to consider spending all that money again because someone can't figure out how to treat customers right and run a business. And I've waited for over 6 months so I'm not going to cancel my order. This site needs to kick Bernie in the ***.

Do they even make just shocks without the threaded body?

Which springs? I'm looking for something soft to put on my daily. I have GC perches.

I have a few of 2.5 inch springs in the 300-550 range. I was under the impression that the Xida take a 2.25 inch spring-will the larger 2.5 inch springs work?

Wannafbody, you and I spoke Tuesday night about 15min after you put up this post... Here's an update.

Bernie was called out of town a day early... Call it a mini vacation but truth be told he's also doing some R&D/testing at the track. He will be back at the shop Tuesday 6/14 AND has told me he'll be working on Miata Street shocks over the week. I'll know more on Wednesday.
