    Time to do some homework, unless $1100 is chump change to you. Gather facts, all your contacts with him, copy of paypal payments, other posts by people getting screwed, both here, and other forums, and put it into one folder, then call some people, file complaints. Call the nearest Russian embassy, Interpol, FBI, local police, etc. Get case numbers, time dates people you have talked to. Even Kyle now realizes this guy is a con-artist. Most likely a lot of his pictures are of products he bought in Japan, with big plans to copy, then found out it was too much work. Only the resident auzy here thinks I was too rough on the poor little ruskie, that was only trying to help our community...

    Wow, 5 months, and no motion ratios yet.... (might as well get in a few digs before the place is gone)

    Some countries are very difficult to recoup funds from, not to mention parts that they don't like. One of the reasons I stopped selling on that fucked up site. Also the reason I no longer sold to countries like russia, france, anywhere is central, or south America after about 2004.

    I have a chrome set, but..... The driver's side is broken. Seen a good one on YJ a couple of weeks ago, but other than making a full set to sell, I had no use for it. I don't do eBay any longer.

    Bull Shit, or yeti shit, but not the truth.

    I like my Momo adaptor, but only fits Momo pattern wheels. They don't cost as much as a Works, due to there being more of them in the states. If you are planning to go quick release, most of the are dual pattern, so they would fit the Momo hub, and what ever wheel you have.

    Sleeper MX83 build

    Hm, first steel flares I've seen that actually have a 3D formed outer lip & mount surface. Everything I've seen lately has just been flat steel sheet cut in a crescent, that the installer would have to do all the forming. Will take someone experienced with welding sheet metal, as it will want to pull as the weld cools.

    Anything for the same vintage Supra should work. Never used anything from NRG, just Momo, but people up here (that supposedly never come by any longer) have.

    He is, unless he ever comes to San Antonio again for a day, and drag Rue back down here. Chris, don't tell me you are allergic to cats......

    New Look / Same Poor Taste

    Looks like way too many clutch dumps with a heavy stock flywheel, and the stock 2-piece drive shaft.....

    Not a surprise, Toyota put out some 7Ms that still had the mechanical fuel pump cam, and distributor drive gear on the oil pump drive shaft, that was last used on a 4M. They never did stop putting in the mechanical fuel pump flange, and the distributor hole in the block. Hell, they were still pressing in the bronze bushing for the distributor shaft into the block until the end. Sometimes someone misses a production meeting, things don't get updated, or they are sitting with 5,000 cams in stock, and just want to use them up.

    More like big plans by the russki, but not enough spine to follow through, and not enough honesty to refund orders when things get backed up. Not as easy as he thought it would be, hence the quality going to shit. Or too much work to do things right on a timely manner. Probably has already spent the money, so can't refund, or it was taken by PayPal to refund those who paid with a normal, not friends & family type payment. A lot of lessons here on how not to purchase things on the internet...........

    So, you condone fly by night suppliers, who scam some people out of their hard earned money. Typical aussie, don't give a fuck about anyone else, as long as he get's his shit. Wonder how much your scamming the local blokes for this Russian shit?

    X8 motion ratios

    Three months, did you ever get around to do all this measuring ? How about dealing with unsprung weight by digging through the scrap yards to see if any of the late model Lexus rear uprights that are made out of aluminum come close to fitting the X8. What do your wheels weigh? If over about 15 lbs each, you are already making wrong choices. Same with brake rotors, what do yours weigh? While you are at it, measure unibody flex at those spring rates, to see what is moving more, the unibody, or the springs. I keep forgetting that I own an ex-Tokyo taxi, and not a Formula-1 car. I dream of having Rue change jobs, so he is around a 5-axis mill, and could whittle out uprights out of blocks of titanium, or titanium hubs. I salivate when I see ceramic coated titanium brake rotors. Considered buying titanium bolts for everything hanging out by the wheel. (spend thousands to loose 5 lbs of unsprung weight). But then I come to my senses, and remember what I have, and unless I win the Power Ball, none of the cool shit will ever happen.
