go to bowling green ..look and listen to the vendors SPONSORS continuing to support the racers (its always the same vendors).More importantly its always the same ones that do NOT support the racers .Take it from experience ,they are all ask ! all ask by many RRAs .The few that do give back give to up to 8 classes with cash and gifts year after year . The ones that support us as racers I support

I guess the BS has started, I have bought a ton of stuff from Kirban over the yrs and I don't ever remember it taking more than 3-4 days until it was at my doorstep no matter what it was, in fact that took some of the sting off of the high shipping price they charge... fast forward to late May 2022 and I am at day 9 waiting on a small part.. and no e-mail response.

I'd be willing to guess that kirban's makes a tidy little sum just off the shipping. A lot of these companies will get a discount
from UPS or Fed-X, whoever for the shipper to give them the business. Say an item cost $100 to ship, they get a 50% discount for instance, pay the carrier $50 and charge the customer the full $100. $50 profit for doing nothing.

I'm thinking shipping costs are not the point here........ not at all.

Castlebuono's horsing around here is the point, and nothing else.

Yeah and there is no way in hell it cost $18 to ship a $5 sticker... don't matter if its one screw, $18 shipping, and yes Guy its not the point.. unless it takes 3-4 wks to get it.

This comment has been bouncing around in my head & I keep bursting out with laughter.. probly because here in New England it would sound like "hawsing around"

Problem is:"MONEY TALKS!"
Dennis wanted to sell, nobody else came up with the cash, no matter where it came from.
Dennis also knows that word travels fast, and no reasonable person should blame him no matter whom he sold to, and we all know who will end up holding the wrong end of the stick.
I made an inquiry to the new buyer about headers BEFORE all of this started, and my B.S. O'METER pegged after only a few minutes. Others may be more trusting.
We watch.
We wait.
We hear what happens to folks that think they are still dealing with Dennis.
We make informed decisions.
Meanwhile, get the word out as you have been!
There are other boards on the net, help them.

He's been around FAR too long to have not known wtf is going on with that asshole....
It’s just sad.. I’m wondering if his awareness has just suffered due to age and he is getting taken advantage of or it was all about the almighty dollar.. He and Christina don’t seem to be the same caliber as the castlebendecos… I guess I will just set back and observe.

I agree but it's just another sneaky way of making a few extra bucks for nothing.

You're right, he can sell to whomever he wants but if I had a well known business (especially with my name on it) for that long with a good reputation I'd want it to be run and remembered the same.
I've bought a number of items from him with no problems at all but now would hesitate with all that's now being said.

OK!
Enough supposition.
I have done business with Dennis.
With good results.
I wasn't comfortable with my header discussion with "the other."
I bought my race headers from T/A.
Thats it.
I should have not said more.
The horse is dead.
Lets agree to all watch and wait, and then see what happens.
