Then have someone put out an e-mail once the orders have gone unfilled beyond a certain amount of time (4 wks maybe?). As I said, I don't mind waiting but if the vendor is proactive in letting me know what's going on, at least I don't feel forgotten. Hang in there and maintain your quality.
Great suggestion. We actually have the newest office staff Irene (just been here a few weeks) doing that now. Thx for the tip. We also should have it stated on the site the wait time...I'll email the webmaster on this (I am computer illiterate)

Cool, that pretty much sums it up. The title of the thread could not be more targeted to damage us, and could have been far better thought out. I understand the frustration and anger, but what does attacking in such a way help anyone? We shipped 93-94 or something cans in the past 3 days, and missed the ship deadline today (have to bring them to post office on Saturdays) by 7 minutes due to traffic or more would have shipped today as well.

Again, the title is clear the intent to damage us financially so I would rather just refund the OP's money at this stage. The damage is done, and all I can do is keep doing our best.

Finally got my catch can in but got the single valve instead of the duel valve. Which I really don't care, it's still going to work, but they need to reimburse me some money. Afraid to send it back, don't want to wait another 5 weeks.

I don't understand it, 900 miles on a small block is not going to kill you. On a DI engine I would be worried, but I don't see a reason why on a port injected engine. Hell, I have 14k miles (12k when I bought it) and Tracy said I don't have to worry about ordering a can and cleaning the engine it right away. Will I do it? Yes. Am I stressing over it? No. Think about how many small block engines don't have catch cans; you'll be fine for 900 miles.

i think mods should delete this thread, the vendor is clearly doing their best, and i don't understand why people think their engine is going to self destruct without a catch can

I was in Tracy's shop today and all I can say is they are doing their best. They're making each can by hand until they get the CNC machine in. Tracy knows what he's doing, give him a break.

I didn't get to bring my car home today, but it ain't the end of the world.

I wouldn't be nowhere near as mad as I am had your company A) plainly stated these items were not in stock and B) had I not been told my order would ship on this date when it didn't. I am familiar with HTML web programming and I do know changing a few words on a website doesn't require a degree in IT to accomplish this task. I'm guessing this is something that has missed your attention and it keeps missing your attention. just post the approx shipping estimate dates so customers like myself do not depend on something that's obviously not going to arrive in a timely manner.

I'm also in the retail business but it's a rare thing that I let my customers down. however, when I do, I more than compensate them by giving the extra effort in making them feel like their disappointment was worth the let down. All I have from RX Performance is a more than likely oil soaked intake track and a few empty promises on product delivery.

^ not a very good batting average on your company's behalf.....
Sorry dude, but the panicked tone in your post literally made me laugh out loud.

Your car isn't going to melt down without a catch can on it. Don't you think GM would have considered that if it were such a big deal?

I ordered one through another vendor (not directly through rx) end of April. Still waiting patiently. Was told this week it is close to shipping

It looks like OP is asking Tracy to buy him a new ZL1. Sorry, found this funny

Amen brother!

People, I have the utmost respect for Tracy and what he does for our community he actually has my car right now and know that he'll produce something magnificent in the end. As far as CC are concerned there are other options out there and as customers we have some control on how things turn out. I personally am an impatient person to begin with and when I spend my hard earn money I want what I paid for now! After doing some research and comparing features and availability of the CC, I went with Elite CC not because they were better than RX but because I wanted it NOW and I preferred the way the can was emptied.

So, bottom line is that it's our choice who we buy from and how long we are willing to wait.
