Beautifully turned out car. Good luck to you guys!

Any Updates on arrival and shipping? I need to make some decisions about tire mounting soon on my 9" wheels. Id like to swap my 275's onto 10" by the week of the 18th. And thus I could put extra track tires on my second set of 9" for the week of the 11th.

I am strongly considering taking my car to Solo National finals next year and seeing the Kubo/Fraser mobile is not helping me not want to. Id take the roll bar out and I think I can get close to my minimum weight. Maybe add a bigger rear wing. After being 8 tenths up on Andy McKee at Packwood this year when we both had dry runs on day1 It has me believing I could be competitively in the mix for a podium in SSM. Iíve beaten last years National 4th place finisher every time this year.

Looking like mid October now. After we made a last minute design tweak, we lost our production slot and had to wait for another one.

I've had 275's on it for a few years now but only on 9" wheels. They are pinched and it tends to make the outer shoulder dig in and wear quickly. I also think they will be noticeably faster with 10’s. I’ve been waiting forever for Emilio to finally make 10’s.

OCTOBER!?!?!?!? Any chance of free shipping or some other compensation for those of us that have given you a 5 month $1,000 working capital loan for free?

muhahahHAHAHAAAA ahhh. Same happened to us first 6ULR customers. It's what you get if you want a baller wheel apparently.

I'd wager your interest payment on October 2012 btw, right after the Rev8's arrive...

Dude chill out. There was design change to make them better. **** happens when an individual has to develop a wheel from scratch and then get certified without capital from huge profits of civic parts. Also this is why there is production runs because he can't float the production costs. Welcome to life.

Nuthug much?

It's not like I was asking for free wheels. Just free shipping

And welcome to life? Really? You have never asked for compensation when someone you have business dealings with doesn't meet their end of the contract?

Why don't you call him and ask for free shipping instead of posting on a forum where he may not see it for weeks?

Want to know why he gets to demand full deposits up-front? Because out of the entire production run, there are four wheels left. You didn't have to order the wheels when you did - I'm sure you could have waited and taken the risk of not getting a set at all.

It's not unreasonable for a customer to be angry when a shipping date is missed, but you're displaying that anger in an inappropriate way. Just call Emilio and tell him what you want and I'm sure he will give you an option that will satisfy you.

If you don't like it, go buy ****-wheels to show him who's boss. The best thing you can do is act like a ****** online and cry like a bitch.

I though the 5 wannabe hustlers on this forum might fill the gap, but no one fills the gap like huslter himself.

Let's get a few things straight here bitch...

I will establish some facts before I get started on your ginger trolling punk-***...

1.) When I give my ******* word, I keep it. I kept my word for 12 years to a nugget with a severe personality disorder even when it meant wiping her *** and pulling constipated **** out of her *** with my bare hands. So you ******* better believe that when I say something I ******* mean it. She cheated and I was released from my word or I WOULD STILL be keeping my promise.

2.) I've been locked up not once, but TWICE because everyone who knew me knew I was gonna ******* kill someone.

3.) I'm generally a nice cool dude, but you have pushed the wrong combination of my buttons.

So, with that said, consider this. If you don't ******* step the **** back I will swear to the following fact. I will use all of my considerable knowledge of the internet, computers and security to track you down and post every sickening relevant detail of your life to every forum on the internet. Oh I do love the taste of revenge turned cold. It won't be today or tomorrow because I will have an entire network or hacked computers gathering information and waiting to DDOS your personal information to every forum, blog, and website I have access to, and there are thousands of them.

I try not to **** on people too bad in meaningful threads.

I dont know what the big suprise with the extended dates are! I was one of the first folks to pay for these. I also knew going into that the date would get pushed back, not like it hasnt happened before with stuff that Emilio has CUSTOM made!. Emilio trys all he can but sometimes you cant control life.

Thanks Emilio for the updates. Cant wait to get them.

Having mounted 275 R6's on 9" rims and seeing the amount of rollover I have to say the 10's are a must if running 275's.

Hoosier states best performance if rim size is with +-1/2" of tire width. Hoosier 275's are 10.1" if I recall correctly.
