    Don't forget that Danny with the Blue Slate G37S has had major issues with Forged as well when he sent his car there for a turbo build. Blown head and failed transmission. This post doesn't surprise me at all.

    That may have very well been as much of a driver issue as a build issue. I don't know, just sayin...

    UPDATE: Sharif banned a guy (not the guy who's car he hacked up, a different forum member) on the forum from the airstrip run at Z days (it is FP's event, not an official Z days event) for shyt talking on the forum about his hack job. Then dude complained and he unbanned him form the event. Douche move. What he should have done is told dude that if he shows after taking that garbage up he's getting his azz kicked. Then backed it up. That's what I'd do. Wait, no I wouldn't. I probably wouldn't say anything until he showed up and then walk up behind him and sucker punch him. Yeah, that's what I'd do.

    Considering how most people in the G community "build" their cars this is quite a lot. Objectively its a lot of money. But for all out performance on the R35 platform, it's not mind boggling if the results were up to par. Unfortunately, he didn't get wht he paid for with the engine/transmission part of the build.
    Ya, I knew it was like 3 or 4 different builds....Still a lot of money though. Was just trying to put things into a little perspective.

    My dad always told me "if you're going to do something, do it right the first time". I feel like that kind of applies to this unfortunate situation.

    As far as sharrif banning that forum member from the air strip event just because he had an unpopular opinion/comment is a d!ck move IMO. I realize its a private event that has nothing to do with zdays, but still. And the fact that he "unbanned" him just shows he thinks it was the wrong thing to do.

    I'd be curious if FP makes it through this. This is a lot of bad publicity
