    shameful
    This must be a joke, I HAVE never nor would I EVER tell anyone stage 3 was going to be ready in 7-10 days when the kit wasn't even in production. So please be sure you get your facts straight before you post things that are just plain crazy. As far as a delivery date, honestly I am not going to give one and end up passing it, I am going to let Doc Race work as fast as they can and when its done its done, anyone who wants a refund in that time frame, just ask and I will give it to you.

    Toni apology but that comment was not for you or your work


    that would have tried to sell you one of his kit assuring me they were going to send me anything but paying $ 8,400 during 7-10 days
    stick has all the information can

    is assured me that nothing would make me pay shipping in a few days.


    apparently is a provider here

    ho if you want I can post it here for all the world to see

    Yes please, show me where I said a kit would be shipped in 7-10 days. I look forward to it. My guess is something got lost in translation. But please do.

    There is something lost in translation and carcars tends to jump the gun a bit. Look, when I sold him a tshirt he got upset about how long it took to get even though I had to send it to freaking Spain and the US domestic shipping cost did not cover it. I still sent it at a loss.

    Carcars, you aren't being singled out. Nobody has their Stage 3 kit. Tony updated the thread. If you can't wait, don't wait.

    There is no both sides to the story, it was posted in public from the very beginning I thought the kit was going to takd at least 6 months to build, I had initially said September release, as we a know it's been way past that now, but these guys want people to believe that with a September release date announced in public, but I am going to tell them 7-10 days? My guess is like a lot if people they asked about different stages and due to the language barrier got things confused. Telling someone a kit is going to ship in 7-10 days when everyone knows the kit hadn't even started production, again just plain doesn't make sense.

    Bahaha! That's supposed to be an email I sent!! I wrote our United States holiday of the new year is Jan 1st? Also the kit waant tested until feb and did not go on sale until March. So I told you to wire me money and brought up New Years holiday in a March or sometime during the middle if the year? Um, yeah bud. You got your wires crossed somewhere. I love that I post a new thread with positive updates and people are still trying to throw dirt. If you dont want to wait DONT. Refunds are on the table, reach out and take one if you wish.

    Um there is your problem bud, you may want to contact us directly next time. Our stage 3 kits are being handled or sold by no one but us. Whoever send you these emails, has nothing to do with us. If you wired this person money, you better make sure we even have an orde for you. Because whoever that was emailing you, has zero affiliation with us. Do you have an invoice from us directly? If not you better start trying to get a hold of that guy, as you might have been scammed.

    Ok, I am at an actual computer now. This is no laughing matter you guys. If you sent money to someone telling you they were representing us, you need to contact that person immediately. We have no one selling our stage 3 kits for us, EVERY single order comes directly through us. This explains the fake delivery promises, etc. I am utterly baffled as to how this could happen, we have websites, phone numbers, and full forum presence with direct emails posted. How did you manage to order a stage 3 kit from someone else? Please email me directly and let me know who you paid, and if you have an invoice number or anything from us confirming your purchase, I never know who on the forums has actually placed an order as the names are always different. My direct email is Tony@vargasturbo.com. If you or other people have ordered these kits from someone claiming to represent us. PLEASE contact us immediately!

    From what I gather from his broken communication is that he purchased a kit from someone on the forum, first thought was maybe someone sold him their Stage 3 spot in line.Now after posting those emails it seems someone was/is posing as a VTT endor, I just don't see how/why anyone would try purchasing these without contacting you.

    This is no joke, and if international, then not really much you can do. carcars, for you sake I hope that you end up ok in this matter, It sounds like the guy he bought from is on the forum as well though, so

    Whoever wrote you this has NOTHING to do with us. NOTHING. Everything he told you is not true unless he had a previous order and you guys switched, but thats not even possible. Because every switch goes directly through me, and all that have, are accounted for. You guys need to clear this up, but one thing that is VERY clear, I made no promises to you for any delivery times, you were listening to someone outside of our organization.

    Sounds like he did, and it really amazes me how so many people are just so willing to send people money with little information. I'm in the construction business, and can't get over how often I hear stories of how much money people have sent contractors without any work done. I feel like we have to jump through hoops most of the time to make a sale and collect on time, yet other contractors end up screwing people for up to 50% of a major job without every even ordering product....people just need to be smarter.

    I really hope this did not happen. It will be such a shame if it did, even more so with how easy it is to get a hold of us directly. I am hoping something is just not translating correctly and we have this guys order. @carcars what is your invoice number. You do not have a legtimate order without one.

    but have failed to warn estafarme.yo only attempt what they were up to deceive and tell everyone in this forum.

    [QUOTE=lfelunden]Hey.

    Yes Max says around 7-10 days! Just wanted to see how fast people are getting them. I'm just helping Max with sales nothing else, btw with the cp-e kit they will push it more and more. They will only give a date for the release within 1-2 months. Tell me if you're still interested in the VTT stage 3

    I am beyond baffled at why any of this is happening. It is VERY EASY TO CONTACT US DIRECTLY. We have 3 different emails that are checked daily, we have phone numbers listed on the website, we have PM's here on the forum. I do not understand who you guys are talking to or how you could possibly fall for someone telling you they had a kit in STOCK, that the company making the kit is posting in public forums that it is still being delayed. This is a common sense matter it seems. I am sorry this has happened, you better try to get your money back, and tell the other people who have ordered from this person as well. I am very confident now, we have none of your orders. How many of you have purchased kits through this person? And please post his name and email publicly so other can be warned.
