    Slowboy Racing is Nomore Racing?

    Word on the street Slowgirl Racing is closing the doors at the end of this month. Guess all the rip offs they got away with finally caught up with them. Surprised they made it this long seeing the laundry list of forum complaints and many complaints to the Better Business Bureu (BBB). Last year they tried to scam me from a refund for an item I bought with cash and they tried telling me they cant give refunds and got the run around for 6 weeks to get my refund. The customer service is horrible and tell you what you want to hear just to get your money and your lucky if you get your parts in a month if they even ship it. From all the other forums they are known for taking your money and not sending the item and then play dumb that the part was "lost". Just glad there is one less scamming shop out there to take peoples hard earned money!

    incorrect. You have absolute control over your employee's and to fix and make sure you have a good staff.

    Guys stick with facts only, if you have not had a first hand exp. with the company, do not post about what you heard.... good or bad its hard for us mods to determine what needs to stay or go if your just talking about what you heard. thanks

    I am an employee...so no i do not. lol.

    And these said employees are no longer with us, so that has been fixed, but the damage they have done still exists.

    But trust me, i have spent many countless hours fixing problems i did not create just because they needed fixed...so im not saying its not my problem if i didnt create it, because as a part of this team its what i need to do. Yeah it sucks and yeah i dont agree at all with the way some customer have been "done wrong" for lack of better terms by previous employees, but i dont play those kind of games and neither does Mike.

    With that said, if you currently have an issue (anyone) please take it up with me in a PM and i will get you taken care of.

    Well, they can't be any worse then the other forum sponsor shop that tells people to buy new genesis 2.0t and they can safely make 450whp out of it


    IMHO, 99% of local "shops" are all rip-offs. They are just people that think since they built a honda to go 15's, they can open doors and work on people's cars with knowledge they learned off forums.

    Honestly folks, I've seen work done by a lot of "local" shops. You can do better on your own. The people working on your car are no more knowledgeable then you.
