    • Jalopnik picks up on BenzBoost story regarding Evosport and Evosport threatens legal action

      One of the largest auto blogs on the net, Jalopnik, has been monitoring our story with Evosport. Things have gotten very heated as of late when Evosport had their attorney, Todd Serota, threaten my father as well as myself with legal action. BenzBoost was given a deadline and told to pull down the articles, looks like we missed it.

      BenzBoost finds Evosport's tactics of covering this story up and threatening us with legal action just rather sad. Instead of going about this professionally, Evosport has been closing threads on MBworld and deleting any mention of it. Since they can not do that on BenzBoost, they have sent their attack dog lawyers after us in an attempt to control things here as well.

      We will not be intimidated or budge from doing what is in our users and the consumers best interest. Consumer advocacy is something we need more of, not less. Mr. Serota, people like you are the problem in this country trying to keep the truth hidden and not having the integrity to do what is right. BenzBoost had the courage to reveal the details of what was taking place and did so accurately. Amazingly, you reached the wrong conclusion but we would not be surprised you would jump to whatever conclusion your clients would want you to jump to.

      You have done the opposite of quieting this down, only making major blogs take notice of it. Aren't you only digging the hole deeper for your own clients? BenzBoost is not afraid of you and not all that impressed with your scare tactics. Plus, aren't you a patent lawyer? Maybe you should stick to that as we can write a much harsher letter than what you provided.

      Also, threatening my 73 old year old father is flat out despicable. We are saddened that Evosport seems to endorse harassing senior and retired family members over forum posts they can not control. This does not reflect well on any company and does not reflect well on you as an attorney. If people wonder why attorneys get a bad name, it is due to actions such as this.

      At this point, it should be clear to you it is impossible to get this story removed as you have now served to propagate it. Well done Evosport and well done Mr. Serota. In our opinion, you have completely mis-managed this situation. Good luck prosecuting the entire internet, it does not seem the Evosport budget will allow for it.

      We have posted the legal documents Jalopnik obtained aimed at BenzBoost here, you can all review them for yourselves and see the lengths Evosport is willing to go to keep the truth from users on MBworld as well as consumers. BenzBoost will continue to do investigative reporting in the best interest of our users and all individuals in the German automotive performance industry.

        Does anyone actually believe that Evosport is not telling people to shut their mouth's or parts won't get delivered to anyone?

        I'm intrigued by the about face that JRCART has done in this thread, by editing his posts on MBW and by commenting on Jalopnik in Evosports favor.

        Just to clarify that's not a clarification post, that's an update. The info reposted by Jalopnik originally posted by Sticky on this site was accurate when it was posted, and at that point you were looking for help from other MBW members to help bring the situation to light. So no, I guess not everyone on the net knows you don't need third parties help when you specifically ask for it. I was one of the people that posted on your behalf on MBW without even knowing you, I won't make that mistake again.

        Members and friends came to bat for you and now after you're taken care of, largely if not solely due to this thread and the support you were given, you just shrivel up and disappear like a grape drying on the vine.

        Just goes to show everyone's out for themselves I guess.
        It's fine, I'm glad Jim is getting what was owed to him and the situation is being resolved for him. Everything regarding him (who is a prominent customer) should be settled by next week I take it, we'll see.

        Someone had to stand up and have the courage to say it and I guess I was the only one willing to do so. No big deal, I'm happy for him and I'm happy for the customers getting their parts.

        If anyone in the future needs any help or is being treated unjustly by a vendor, I will be glad to stand up for them as no other site seems to be willing to. Certainly not MBworld, and certainly not if the issue concerns Evosport.

As of last Sunday March 27 evosport was not done with the car so the decision was made to pull the car from evosport and let Weistec complete the work. Weistec was amazing, they did more work in 5 days than I had seen out of evosport in 5 months and that is no exageration, not even a slight exageration.

        What I find puzzling is that they use the move to their new 15,000 sq ft facility as an excuse for the delays, my question is why are they expanding if they can't financially handle their current work load? Kinda like putting the cart before the horse isn't it?

        There will be more info to come, when the time is right I will be releasing every detail of the JRCART/evosport debacle with detailed e-mail and text correspondance, insurance information, wire transfer info and more. Right now my hands are tied becuase this might(is) be turning into a legal matter and we have been advised to not divulge certain information so I hope you guys can understand about the lack of info I am sharing at this time.

        blair_mbz is Brad, I recieved a email from a MBW moderator confirming it.

        If you notice blair_mbz is trying to discredit some of JRCART's posts becuase one of my friends(Rich) posts under the JRCART name. Truth of the matter is that Rich is 100% responsible for building my BS as well as all of my other vehicles from custom golf carts to ATV's to Harleys, cars, trucks and my RV. For Brad or blair_mbz to infer that Rich's posts are not in my best interest is 100% incorrect. Rich is one of my best friends of 22 years and recently former employee. Rich is the one that saw the writing on the wall with delays back in early jan and cautioned me to put some pressuer on evosport for updates. Rich has a far better technical grasp on things than I and a better eye for making things look cool so he pretty much has free rein to do whatever he wants to any of my vehicles and he drives them all regularly as well so as you can see his interests are with me and all my vehicles. Furthermore Rich can post under my username becuase I know that for the most part his thoughts mirror my thoughts so for brad or anyone to try to discredit him would be wrong.

        Truth be told Rich is the reason my BS got sent to evosport 3 years ago in the first place. Up until 2 days prior to shipping it to evosport in Nov of 2007 my intentions were to send the car to Renntech but Rich had seveal in depth conversations with Bob(brads dad) at evosport and convinced me to ship the car to evosport. As you all know evosport built me one hell of a great car and I honeslty think it's one of the best all-around vehicles ever built, it excels on the strip, road course or driving through town. Up until this last go around with evoport I was very pleased with their serivce and quality, they do offer and build some great products having sent the car there for 3 major winter projects in a row it's obvious I was happy with their work.

        UPDATE I have had some discussions with brad this week and things are getting worked out, I will keep everyone posted.

        ONE MORE THING: MY MOTOR IS NOT BLOWN, THERE ARE RUMORS FLOATING ABOUT THAT THE DELAYS ARE STEMMING FROM EITHER EVOSPORT OR WEISTEC BLOWING UP MY MOTOR, THAT IS NOT THE CASE MY CAR WAS RUNNING WHEN IT LEFT EVOSPORT AND IT IS STILL RUNNING TODAY AND WAS ON A DYNO FOR SEVERAL HOURS LAST NIGHT SO LETS PLEASE STOP WITH THOSE ASSUMPTIONS

Everyone has my word that I will keep them posted, I've got nothing to hide from my side nor from evosports side and for right now I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt, if they spoil that trust then we can cross that bridge when we come to it.

        This is my last post for the time being on this topic but I should be posting up some dyno numbers very shortly

        From what I'm reading I don't think anyone can claim they haven't been "accurately portrayed" and this is just what's posted publicly on this forum by JRCART himself or themselves, no texts, emails, phone calls, etc.

        Yes, and this is what we wanted to clarify as well as you stance changing from inflated costs to now accurate costs. It was implied earlier they were charging too much, and this has changed.

        I want to make it clear to protect myself as well as my reputation of reporting the events accurately. That is all, I agree, this is not a major issue and it is over with.
        The only time I mentioned chargeback was when I was going to have another shop redo the unsatisfactory paint work, at that time I was not aware of California laws that require me to give the vehicle back to that shop to give them one more chance to make it right. In IL the customer is allowed to pick any body shop(any body shop certified by the insurance co) to have the repairs done correctly the second time around and the insurance company will then go after the first shop to try to recover their costs.

        I will admitt that at one point I thought the amount of the insurnace work looked high for the amount of visible damage on the car but I have since obtained a complete breakdown of all charges on the claim from the insurance company. There was quite a bit of damage not visible that was uncovered after the body shop dug into it such as a trans cooler and radiator, those two items alone are several thousand dollars when the labor is factored in. In addition to those two items there was a cracked Dymag and a damaged Vorsteiner splitter so the damages added up pretty quickly.

        As mentioned before I will be meeting with evosport owners and managment on Thursday of next week, and at this point they have delivered on about 90% of what they were contracted to. They have my Vorsteiner splitter yet to be installed but they assured me that they have it in their shop and it will be delivered on my visit next week.

        I was pretty upset with the Jalponik article because although some of what they published was accurate, some of it was not and even more of it was not accurate yesterday or Thursday when the article was published. They were reporting it like it was current and the situation has changed in the past 3-4 weeks. I have never changed my stance I said I pulled the car out of evosport and gave it to Weistec, I said that there were some loose ends that evosport had to still deliver on and that I would keep everyone posted on and I did. I posted an update on this site earlier this week that said that evosport now owed me under $1000 and a Vorsteiner splitter and that they are upholding their end of the deal. So you can imagine my suprise when I see a new article on Jalopnik yesterday that is quoting some bad information and is reporting some 3-4 week old information making it look like it is the current state of the situation. It was very mis-leading. I'm not changing my tune or backing off of anything but when this all came out and started a few weeks ago I promised I would keep everyone posted adn I kept my word, I kept everyone posted when I posted they owe me less than $1000 and Vorsteiner Splitter. Sorry if that is not the answer that you wanted to hear but it's the truth. I have posted the truth since day one regardless of if evosport liked what I had to say, just like I am posting know whether you or anyone else likes what I have to say. I would be just as bad if I did not post up an honest update.

        Exactly, this is all I wanted to clarify. Not a big deal at all.

I told my evosport story 4 weeks ago and I'm telling you the same story today but with a happier ending rather than a bad or nasty ending, sorry you can't be happy for me pal.

        JRCART, I fully expect you or anyone else to post your complete experience from start finish, good or bad. As I stated, I'm glad they are making an effort now after about 6 months and it seems some heat has given them motivation.

        There is nothing wrong with you posting what was owed and if they come through on that, I fully encourage it. That is just my opinion.

        Yes, we will see. Trust me if I walk in there and they don't have my splitter there is going to be hell to pay and I will let all of you know about it but until then I am taking them on their word. I had a phone conversation on Thursday afternoon with them and I was assured they have the new splitter in their hands and waiting for me. I find it very funny that some of you have come down on evosport for being dis-honest yet I post a honest update as to the status of the situation and let everyone know it is nearly resolved and you want nothing to do with it...That's just wrong.

        You are just one customer. What about the rest of the $250K in "backorder"? That represents other customers -- unhappy customers who did not receive the product they ordered.

        Like I just posted, I am not in any way happy about the situation, I am not happy that they had the car 5 months and got only a portion of the work completed. Yes, I did pull the car out an dhad Weistec finish it. I would not say I am happy. I am saying that they have delivered on the majority of what was promised. In one of my last post I said I'm not running out and planning a new round of mods with evosport, so to call me a "Happy Customer" is a bit of a stretch...more twisting of my words

        Personally, I want everything to do with it as fair is only fair. It is ridiculous it had to come down to this to get things done but if things are getting done I'm happy for you in particular.

        Pardon me for being picky, but 90% complete 46 days after the completion date on the contract is unacceptable to me. Houses have been built in less time.

        Not to sound like a broken record, but also as I stated in a recent post, I'm not a pawn in anyones chess game. If people are owed parts by evosport they need to speak up, I'm sure my being open and vocal about the situation did not hurt when it came down to them coming through on my stuff. I guess I somehow became the poster child for the anti-evosport movement but if I were to continue to let people think I was still being screwed over that would be A) Wrong and B) Illegal. I can tell my story and say it took them 5-6 months to get the job done but I can't keep going on and saying they are continueing to screw me when they are not.

I told my evosport story 4 weeks ago and I'm telling you the same story today but with a happier ending rather than a bad or nasty ending, sorry you can't be happy for me pal.

        I think it's great you have resolution. I hope every other customer who was owed something by Evosport finds the same satisfaction.
        For the record, I couldn't care less about Evosport. For disclosures sakes, I've purchased from them in the past and haven't had an issue.

        I guess the point that some forum members are trying to get at here is that everything is NOT hunky-dory.
        In your heart of hearts, can you honestly say that Evosport would have resolved these issues to your satisfaction if the $#@! didn't hit the fan over the last few weeks?

        From the outside, the whole situation reeks of Evosport being backed into a corner by heavy-hitters like yourself - ultimately leading to them doing the right thing by you. And there's nothing wrong with that - your priority is to be made whole.
        Now that some people are getting your issues resolved (which is great), there's a misconception that everything's A-OK again. It's NOT.
        Evosport's recent conduct on MBW, as well as their behavior towards Sticky and Benzboost are just two of the issues in play here.

        If 1% of what you and others have claimed is true, that's reason enough to never do business with these guys again. Call it what you want, but actively and knowingly taking money from customers when they damn well know they don't have the capacity to follow through with their contractual obligations is tantamount to THEFT.
        Trying to cover the entire mess up is even worse.

        Like I said, I will be there on Thursday this week to get the other 10% of what is owed me. They assure me it is there. I already stated I was unhappy with the time-line. You guys need some Hooked-On-Reading CD's I think.

If people are owed parts by evosport they need to speak up, I'm sure my being open and vocal about the situation did not hurt when it came down to them coming through on my stuff. I guess I somehow became the poster child for the anti-evosport movement but if I were to continue to let people think I was still being screwed over that would be A) Wrong and B) Illegal. I can tell my story and say it took them 5-6 months to get the job done but I can't keep going on and saying they are continueing to screw me when they are not.
        They are not all forum members here and it seems that they have been censored on MBW when they have spoken about it.

        I agree 100% it's a shame things came to this and it's a shame if others are still owed parts/products or refunds. Maybe those people need to step up the pressure, I've done what I can do and that is post up my experiences.

        I think this is very well stated.
