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.
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?

The elite can I posted a picture of is the ls3 can with one of their existing billet aluminum brackets. I could get part# if you need them

Noticed that immediately. I wasn't sure which can to get because on this forum both RX and Elite get nothing but outstanding reviews. But then Elite had nothing listed for the ZL1 and I didn't want to end up with the wrong can. Now Im on that long wait list too.

It's a forum! He can post if he's upset. Look at the pic this shouldn't have made it out of the shop like this.

My Rx can for my z was correct and painted perfectly. He can expect the same and be disappointed and demonstrate why anytime here.

OP I'm sure they will make it right. Hope to see you at autobahn soon

I have no doubts that a RX can works as intended. Tracey has been great to me in terms of customer service. I just didn't like the way it was designed. You've got a confusing open/close valve where people are still thinking their cans are closed when they're actually open. You've got a clear tube hanging down in your engine bay that has a brown color after the first drain. You've got instructions that are hard to understand (same goes for the breathers). Depending on the installation, the suggested mounting location is not that secure or it's a pain to reach the drain valve. Combine that with recent quality issues, epic backorder, and backlash from the vendor for posting a honest review...

I think I found the LS3 one, but please do post the part #. Was it a straight forward install, do it yourself kind of thing?

Yeah, makes me worry since they dont specify our cars at Elite. I asked the other person to post the part number, I think I will order the one for the LS3 like he did.

That's which one I bought, nice can, clear instructions with photo's, but I had to heavily modify the bracket in order for it to fit. Works great and I have no other complaints or gripes about it.

If you are interested in the mods I did for the bracket see my earlier posts and follow the links to a youtube vid I had made.
