    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...

    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.

    WTB: x8 door handles

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Has anyone been posting this shit on facebook ? Like fucking daily ?

    Suggestion: Put all the facts down into one document, and contact the nearest Russian embassy. Do the same with the FBI, and get a case number. Post what you have done on all the social media site, and forums this ass hole has been posting on, even if it means joining a lot of other forums. Ask if anyone else has been screwed, and to do the same. When they contact the FBI, have them reference your case number. The FBI will only get involved if the total dollar figure reaches $10k, but that is easily reached. I had to do this years ago when I put up about $3k for a sniper rifle that a big shot vendor on AR15.com was offering. It turned out that he was nailing a lot of people, and had a history of screwing people on other forums, not only just firearms. Once the FBI seen there was a history of his bull shit, they had a little talk with him, and I got my money back, as did several of the other victims. But I had to do a lot of research on my own, by tracing down his various e-mail addresses, aliases, addresses, etc..

    OK robaphent & whoremouth, seeing you were so positive on this guy, why don't you go to all the 'relevant' social media sites this con-artist hangs on, and post this ass hole Russian's activity ? Maybe people here should think twice about telling me to stop calling something is fishy with a new vender, and saying they smell like roses. Just maybe I may recognize something after 20 years of buying/selling on the 'net, to the tune of $2 million (US, not Canadian, or Australian). Brian, why don't you lock this shit down of every tom, dick, and harry using this place for free advertising ?

    Not even a year.... Wish you the best of luck with PayPal. Wonder how many other PayPal claims are pending against this guy ? Maybe all the members here (past & present) who said this guy was OK will chip in, and cover your loss if Paypal doesn't. .

    Gordo's X8 Ramblings

    Guess it's about time I do a build thread instead of throwing out bits of my stuff everywhere else. It's not going to be in any fucking order. I will post my currant accomplishments, and fill in once in a while with past doings. Just finished building my X8 clutch master cylinder, 3/4" bore to work with my Coleman coaxial throw-out bearing set-up. Rue enlightened me on the 5/8" bore master being a little on the weak side for dislacement. Trouble is, the run of the mill 3/4" masters here have the wrong reservoir for the X8. I know people cram them in, but I wanted the long angled reservoir that belongs on an X8 (same as the IS300 / Mk4 Supra). So after hours of surfing, I found that the Land Criusers in other parts of the world have the correct style of reservoir mount, and are 3/4" bore. So I found one, that is aluminum, and changed out the plastic from one of my spare IS masters. Had to make a spacer for the front, so that it would mount correctly, and used a 5mm stainless shcs, instead of the roll pin that comes from Toyota.

    'tis just a bump in the road.... The costs over purchase price seems steep, just a few months ago picked up some SSR 16x8s that final price was about $450 over purchase price. Typical price to have tires removed has been less that $100. Did you have them flown over, or a boat ride? Nice wheels though.

    SCG 6 piston bracket kit

    So I fucking missed one out of three....... Picture: Kind of helps stop fuckery, it's not like no one has ever got fucked on this site....... (also is just plain courteous, and makes good business sense) Location: Helps eliminate mystery factor. Supra Forums used to have a great for sale set of rules that cut way down on fuckery: Min 50 posts (hard to do here, since few newbs make half that before they bail on an X-chassis) Real Name Picture Price (He met 1, wow....) Location Contact info Maybe I'll just start making posts in this section with a title 'Cressida Part - $100', then never reply to any info requests.
