J/k bro... glad to see you back in the car... sorry about the ticket, and the city of Kyle also calls it deferred disposition if you pay the extra cash to keep it off your record and don't get another ticket for 90 days...

ask me how I know.....

When we pulled the clutch out of the car a few weeks ago we sent it to Monster Clutch/SNL Performance in Dallas to get a replacement. They told me that they will charge my credit card for backup, only till they receive the old clutch back.

Well once they received the clutch they determined that the clutch failed due to oil on the disk. (not sure why something as small as that voids the warranty, seems like a regular hazard), anyway, thats what they claimed, which means that my disk and pressure plate are not under warranty and they already had my credit card info so they left the $550 charge on my card.

Ok... now some of you may be "why is he mad, it is a valid reason that the warranty would be voided".... to those people...
I am not done with the storey yet
.
.
.
.



So granted maybe that does void the warranty, but... my issue now with Monster and SNL is the fact that they did not ever WARN me that when they got the disk and pressure plate back that may not cover it. I was never told that I may be responsible for the charges they put on my card "as a formaility". Owen from ARD was awesome enough to take high res pictures of the old clutch, so Monster knew exactly what they were getting... That is strike 1, maybe 1.5 if you agree or disagree with the diagnoses of the clutch .

Strike 2 - I am talking to them on the phone and I say, ok, well I am buliding a new transmission so I do not want your brand new clutch, can I send it back..... they reply "sure, for a 25% restocking fee"... wait... what... a $125 restocking fee for two pieces of metal that was delievered to me in a cardboard box and plastic wrap? Who at the shop actually gets the 125 to place it back on the shelf? I want that job.

Strike 3 - Is not directed at Monster... its directed to X-HP... the bane of my existence... Monster assured me that this failure was due to the original shop and the installation of the their clutch. So almost 1 year down the road... xtreme hp is still costing me money.


urgh... its been an awful couple days... well almost an awful week now, haha.

write up on the trans is still in the works.

It does suck for Kyle to be going through all the headaches...

Keith... I'll see if I can find it, but there is an advertisement for a caretaker at a drive through Zoo in Ok... They need some that isn't afraid of Ostrichs... has experience with big birds... etc... I can't remember it all...

Hope everything is going good for you up there in the Big D area...

Holy sh!t, man...that's HORRIBLE.

You know, I'd fight that crap right down to the end.

You sent back a product, expecting it to be replaced under warranty. You were not told they were going to send you a new one in place of the old one as you DID NOT ASK FOR A NEW ONE IN PLACE OF THE OLD ONE IF THE OLD ONE COULD NOT BE REPLACED...(or did you?)

So I'd tell them to take that 25% restocking (rip off) fee and tell them to shove it up their ASS. YOU are the one with the credit card and YOU are the one either allowing or disallowing the charges. YOU call the bank if you did not authorize the charges for a brand new clutch, restocking fee, etc.

Tell them you will pay for the shipping of the old clutch back...nothing more, nothing less.

If they refuse, call the bank. Deny the charges. Then file a complaint on them with the BBB. One complaint won't change the world, but as they begin to tally up, stuff happens...kind of like a little old shop in Dallas.

+1. They can't just randomly charge your card. You never authorized that. I'd absolutely call your credit card company.

Sorry this happened bro.

That pretty much blows Kyle.

Definitely stay on them. Send a dispute to the credit card company.

...and on a good note - glad your car is running so well NOW !!!
