WAIT 7 WEEKS FOR RX DUAL CATCH CAN AND LOOKS LIKE CRAP, WITH THE WRONG BRACKET

Name:  CATCH CAN.jpg
Views: 1632
Size:  99.6 KB The can came in today from RX, looks like shit and came with the wrong bracket, After waiting 7 weeks for the can they send me a can thats looks like they didnt put enough clear coat its real dry. I cant believe they would send this can out the way it looked. Im calling them in the morning to bitch. I ordered from JDP and i know tylor said it was for a zl1, This is a dam shame you spend good money on a duel can and this is what rx sends me. I thought the rx markings are supposed to have a red X not black you cant even see the X. Just really sucks, Im calling tracy from rx this is not right.

Size:  148.6 KBi liked the elite, it's not a dual valve but does a great job. Checked it after 1600 miles (2000kms) including 3 trips to the drag strip. Clean about tablespoon of oil out of it.

It doesn't have the nice finish that they show on their website. I wonder what is going on.

Oh man.. No! Not another thread like this... Ok I'm worried now... I almost canceled my order due to another thread... But I decided to give Tracy the benefit of a doubt and continue to wait... I sure hope mine is right...

The bracket should have been black with a slight bend, in there directions it says the straight bracket is not used for the zl1 should have a bend. When i ordered from JDP i asked tylor about the bracket and made sure it was the one i wanted, This bracket is to short to mount by the radiator where is says to mount with out it rubbing. The silver bracket looks like shit with the black.

Thanks. I liked the RX can also but just couldn't wait a month and a half for one. The elite also has a black chrome can I think would look awesome under the hood. I went with red because I got the red hoses with my roto fab and thought it matched the engine cover.

The shop in Canada that did the work to my car Davenport Motorsports stocks elite catch cans, but I believe you can order them right from their website www.eliteengineeringusa.com

That does look pretty bad. Doesn't make sense coming from a shop that has been putting out only top quality products. I'm still waiting on my dual Black can. Order placed 4-26-13. Must of been around the same time you ordered. The reviews and comments on RX products have been outstanding in the past and now all of a sudden another unsatisfied customer. That is a very long wait and that can somehow made it past quality control. Definitely give Tracy a call.

Wow! I had no idea that the wait was so long for these now. I got mine from Ted Jannetty last fall and he recommended the dual valve can instead, so I went that way. Only waited a few days, but it came with the wrong bracket- straight instead of bent. I just bent it myself and you can't even tell it didn't come that way.

I hope you get taken care of, especially after that long of a wait and the subpar quality.

I hate that happened to you buddy. I am ordering the Elite just because of how they did you. I know how pissed off I get when I get crap service/product for my hard earned money. That thing looks like crap, and it took forever for you to get it to boot.

However, on the Elite web site, they dont show anything for the ZL1 at all. Guess Ill call them tomorrow. Hope it doesnt go down the wrong trail with them too.

Can't tell much about the paint from that pic. I understand your frustration, but why not contact them before making this post?
