Beware of RDPStore

After being a long time customer of RDPStore it saddens me to post this.

DO NOT BUY PARTS FROM THIS BUSINESS..

No one from there will respond to any questions at all. Some of the email addresses have been disabled, getting server bounce backs after sending an email. Phone calls are disconnected after selecting a prompt.. If you do choose the chat feature, you will get an auto reply telling you to send an email... Similar experiences have been posted in the Corvette & GMC forums...

Anyways, I ordered a DSS driveshaft back in Jan with a 10-12 week lead time per the main contact at that time. So basically 4/12/22 ETA. After 12 weeks was told it would be another 3 weeks. 2 weeks later the main contact leaves.. New contact doesn't respond...

Thankfully my impatience caused me to order GM ZL1 conversion driveshaft from RockAuto back in early March as I didnt want to wait until the DSS arrived.

If a message does get through to RDP through chat etc, DynoSteve will email you from his new business. I did speak with him and he explained how this all went down and some about the owner of RDP. DynoSteve was kind enough to offer help to get the part through his new store/site quickly. I decided to hold for now.

I did dispute the charge and got my money back...

Sometime after July 3rd, the FB pages for RDPStore disappeared... Site is still up though..

This actually may turn out for the better as I have been leaning towards a 4L80 swap anyways which would require a completely different driveshaft...

Anyways, I hope no one else has been in a similar situation with RDP.

Just for old times sake, I thought I would try and see if the rdpstore.com site was still up or not..

That would be a negative ghost rider... lol

Yes I was bored the other day and checked as well and it's not, I am annoyed that I paid for tunes for life and got a couple months of time.

That's what happens when one person keeps a company alive and they can't pay him despite all that.
Then you can't be surprised that Dynosteve went his own way.
He basically had no choice.


He cannot live on the fruits of the forest and graze in the meadow.


I ended up exactly the same as you.
So I bought a new license from Dynosteve and continue to work with him.
Its quality of work and technical support are simply worth it.

I do... RDP always had issues. Sold or not Steve was still here. I've seen so many shops go down and come back with another name with the same outcome again. There is just more to this story but hope history doesn't repeat itself this time.

Looks like DynoSteve didn't renew the forum sponsorship or got booted. All his posts are gone as well. For those of you still dealing with him - best of luck.

It says there is a page 2 to this thread but every time I click it I go back to Page 1. I really hope he is still honoring his Tune for life deal since I paid twice. DSP Page is still up.

Pretty sure it's due to DynoSteves posts being removed. If you see his name on a post and click on it, it goes to the last "active" persons post and not his.

Very satisfied with the tune I received from Steve so , no issue there. However, very glad I went with the single tune, rather than the lifetime. Hemmed and hawed about it for awhile and thought, this is probably as much engine mods as Iím going to do. No need to pay the price for lifetime tunes.
