an EXTREME warning


SLAMMER

Recommended Posts

I'm not too pleased with the treatment I received from EXTREME MOTOR SPORTS over the past 1 1/2 months. two transmissions and a missing hose clamp that covered the bottom, sides and rear of the car in transmission fluid. This could have been a very big fire hazard I learned later. Jan at the least threw his machanic under the bus and at the worst lied about where the leak came from. Some one forgot to put a 2nd hose clamp on a after market transmission oil cooler splice in the hose where a brass barbed coupler was added. Then after Jan pointed out the two metal lines coming from the side of the pan behind the passenger header and told me three times that is where the leak came from. I told him what really happened. That is why the header has burned oil on the front and outside sections of it.

THE CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM I FOUND

Posted Image

NOT THE REAL LEAK BUT SOME HOW A SECOND CLAMP WAS INSTALLED ANYWAY

Posted Image

WHY WOULD YOU PUT A CLAMP ON A HOSE THAT WAS NOT LEAKING.

Posted Image

THIS IS WHY THE LEAK WAS FORWARD OF THE STEEL LINES. BEHIND THE HEADER IS THE STEEL LINES. SEE THEM.

NO YOU CAN'T THAT IS WHY YOU DON'T GET FLUID ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE HEADER FROM THIS KIND OF LEAK

DOSN'T MAKE FOR A TRUSTING BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP.

I ALSO HAD A SECOND SET OF EYES AND EARS THERE TO CONFIRM THE MORNINGS EVENTS.

Not the first or second problem I've heard about them. At least it seems it's taken care of now.

I had an issue with their attention to detail or lack thereof when the put a torque converter in my ride. Seems they didn't read how to properly fill the tranny afterwards and, as Big Poppa's windshield will attest, they overfilled it by a ton. Finding enough towels to clean all of the tranny fluid off of the back of my car and the windshield of anyone following me was fun after 5 hours of blow off. :facepalm:

Well, tonight we went through Slammers car and gave it the treatment to finally get rid of the rest of the tranny fluid all over the car. After two complete coats of the Foam Cannon as well as the two buckets with extra soap. The car has minimal damage from sanding the car when it was washed at the shop. Next week I will finish correcting the paint problems with the Flex in the shop. But for now the car is back to bling and beauty. Slammer is one of the nicest guys I have ever been thankful to call a true friend. He is a very truthful bend over backwords family and friends kind of guy. Way to go Tim for being a Super Trooper during these crapy times, hang in there your car is back to spinning tires and lighting fires.

Take it to a Stealership and file a warranty claim.
