    The upcoming 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is the baddest truck on the planet. Unless you have been living under a rock you know the Raptor's 6.2 liter naturally aspirated V8 is being replaced with a high output 3.5 liter Ecoboost which shares similarities with the Ford GT variant. Over 450 horsepower is expected and it is sent to all four wheels through a 10-speed automatic transmission. The Raptor is not designed to be a dragster but to kick ass off-road with various terrain modes and heavy duty suspension components: Starting at $48,325 this is not a cheap truck but you certainly do get what you pay for. We can't wait to see it in action.

    So many incredible stories but what is truly mind blowing is how the slimeballs manage to stay out of jail and just keep on doing what they are doing. The end here isn't going to pretty for the thieves especially considering one is a felon on probation and house arrest and the other allegedly stole millions of dollars from various parties with the money to go after them. It sucks for Weistec that they got dragged through the mud but fortunately the majority of this is behind them and they resolved issues. Just have to wait for the legal action to be wrapped up and I wonder how severe the sentencing will be. No doubt they will appeal and stall as long as possible.

    In general the auto aftermarket industry has always been so shady. Some real slime balls in the business.

    Um did you not read the article? It tells you all you need to know about dealing with Dime. To make it even more clear, Rod Shuqom who is involved with Dime is involved with litigation from multiple parties and accused to stealing millions. That doesn't sound safe to me.

    Many of you have been hearing various rumors about Weistec Engineering and it is simply time to address the topic. Some of you know that Steve Atneyel and Murad Shuqom were previously involved with Weistec Engineering and that Weistec is going through the proper legal channels to address a multitude of issues. What you need to know right now is the following: 1. Steve Atneyel is no longer with Weistec Engineering. 2. Murad Shuqom/Rod Shegem is not involved with Weistec Engineering. 3. Steve Atneyel is a convicted felon. 4. The two individuals named above are involved with Dime Consulting. 5. Dime Consulting has contacted various BenzBoost vendors and attempted to sell products (likely Weistec products) and get money through backchannels. 6. Steve Atneyel and Murad Shuqom allegedly funneled large sums of money from Weistec. 7. Parts were ordered outside the normal Weistec accounting channels. 8. The full complaint against these individuals and Dime Consulting is outlined below. There is much to this ordeal and we will keep it brief and simple as the legal wheels churn. It is necessary to set some things straight and inform the user base as well as vendors to be cautious at this time as those cited in the complaint continue in various nefarious ways to attempt to source funds. This situation began roughly when Steve Atneyel was arrested by federal agents. Yes, it is true that he illegally attempted to sell an AK47 to an undercover federal agent. Supposedly the ATF was tipped off by Andrew Cluck of MHP infamy. You can not make this stuff up. BenzBoost learned the reasons behind why some members were complaining of not receiving Weistec parts they stated they ordered and why rumors were swirling. Well, if someone takes an order and pockets the cash without delivering the product that certainly will create problems. Weistec and their accounting department were unaware of these backdoor deals taking place. Unfortunately, this type of criminal act happens more often than you think in this industry. HPF (Horsepower Freaks) and Undercover Tuning both had employees who did similar things but eventually the law caught up to them. It will be no different here. The way Weistec dealt with the missing orders was to simply eat the cost and give the customers what they stated they paid for despite Weistec never actually receiving the money which was essentially stolen. This is the right way to handle it and BenzBoost was pleasantly surprised to hear this as many companies would not step up to the plate to resolve theft out of their own pockets. Please read the full complaint for further details which should clarify things for those wondering how this will be resolved. There are others affected as well and that is why pages such as http://rbsroyaltymotorsportscase.blogspot.com/2014/07/were-you-ripped-off-by-murad-rod-shuqom.html exist that attempt to warn people and inform them: BenzBoost would love to delve into this topic further and when the legal action is resolved we will do that. Quite frankly, the full details could fill a novel. Weistec wishes to put this issue behind the company as quickly as possible and it has not affected and will not affect their product lineup or development which moves forward unimpeded. Enthusiasts can look forward to continued quality products and customer service. The formal complaint is below for those who would like to read it.
