Jimmy Day is a great fake name. Steve Jones is a good one as well; you should probably try that when you go troll on other forums that you've been banned from.

Would James be better? I surrender. I guess I will see at least one of you Tuesday if I am back from Super Chevy. Took next week off from work.

Ok J.R.

Great business man sharing financial information with random customers off the street..

If, and that's a huge IF, this is "Jimmy Day," which I seriously doubt... why would a business man share information about other customers with you...

I could maybe understand if you were a long time trusted customer but someone that had received free air... When you jumped in on this, you hadn't bought your "brake rotors" yet... and yet, J.R. shares all this information with you... an unknown person off the street...

The arguments and typing style so match J.R. when he gets involved in defending his inferior products on other forums as well... Though I gotta give you credit for improving some of the spelling skills.

I believe the two of them are sitting J.R.'s office and the new guy is actually typing....

I just don't understand how an unknowing guy that got free air has so much confidence that he is going out this far on a limb, for a banned sponsor (banned on multiple forums)

I need to stop feeding the troll...but the more times he defends this tool, the closer to the top of the page the Granatelli is a crook gets on the internet...

If you have never gotten free air you'll never understand the doors it opens into a companies fiscal information. It's all about free air.

Thanks, thanks a lot. Now I have to go to sleep with thoughts of slowfofo sitting on JR's lap, in his office, trying to put together coherent posts!!

Sounds to me like it's time to take him up on his word and lawyer up...

What a tool...

Again, Mr. Basile asked Granatelli to repair his already broken engine when he first came to us June of 2012. It is disingenuous to claim Granatelli Motor Sports should have been able for foresee future problems he “may have experienced”. Furthermore this RACE engine work was performed June 2012, 12 months ago. Granatelli extended the olive branch to Mr. Basile by offering to inspect his vehicle for free. He asked what it would cost to fix and we told him without a visual inspections there was no way to properly ascertain an accurate repair cost. It was Mr. Basile’s speculation that it could be as much as $5000 not Granatelli’s
BBB works great when a company cares about their rating. When they don't, then you get responses like this and the BBB can't do much.

I'd definitely lawyer up at this point. That or just go onto yelp, yahoo, etc. and write a shit-ton of negative reviews. Worked with the body shop that screwed me over.

Sounds alot like chris@Hunters Performance. I went through the same bull**** just lies over lies and then when you call them out on it that make up complete bs when they are to cowardly to talk face to face. People like this will never change they will lie to the end. It will always be someone else fault. Just lawyer up and be done with it.

thats crazy! i took up on an offer by GMS to install an axleback on v6. i love it. it hasnt failed me either. this was back in november 2012. it was $200 labor included. im college student so i jump on anything under 400. the whole time i was there though, J.R. wasnt there. I talked to jasper. when my car was done, mr. granatelli finally got there and i paid him cash. and he was talking to another customer as well and i do recall me overhearing him angrily talking about being banned from some forum and going to make another account. i guess this is what this is about :o

this isnt positive nor negative, just sharing my experience; what heard and saw.
please dont kill me!

p.s. if any of you guys want to donate a SS my way, please dont hesitate lmfao jkjk

Have you looked these guys up? They got an A rating.

As for them showing me "secret financials" that is really not the case. They never showed me your credit card info or personal info just the fact that you never purchased anything from them other then the turbo which you said were purchased under duress because you were stranded in AZ and your engineer and Turbo Tech who sold you the parts were not there to support you.

You guys all said prove it - I went there to get the info and based on all the crap that was flying around he was more than happy to show me the truth.

Anyone can get an A rating if no one speaks up and then again all you gotta do is slip your local BBB a few bucks and they adjust your rating.

Yes I did. It is why I have not jumped on the "lawyer up" bandwagon. Once that happens, the BBB will stop their investigation. They don't like responses like the one JoeyB got, and their rating will probably go down if he let's them finish thier work. If he lawyer's up, then it will probably stay at an A rating.

I wonder if that isn't part of the GMS MO??? Force everyone to court and keep it out of the public eye.
