    Beware of this guy named race308 or real name Jim Carpenter at 512 n Hassayampa Prescott AZ 86303

    I bought a 308 input shaft that was described as excellent. When I received it, every gear tooth was pitted, 2 bearings had seized up on the shaft and the shaft was galled badly. It had been "bead blasted" to look good on the photo.

    I bought this shaft Dec 8 2003. To date, I have had zero response from this seller.

    I'm hoping someone out there knows this guy, and can help light a fire under his arse to do the right thing and refund my cash.

    He can have the shaft back, but he's paying for shipping. It's a glorified paper weight.

    I have bad experience too with "race308" alias Carpenter, as have others. Here a cut and paste from what I wrote in this thread, http://ferrarichat.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1432



    regarding the GTO mirrors

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As I mentioned earlier, I ordered mirrors from Jim Carpenter but never received them and had to get my money back from my creditcard company by filing in a complaint/recharge form. Today I reveived an email from Mr. Carpenter, the first one since he wrote >"Hi Bert I will get it right out Thanks jim", 30 Aug. I sent him several mails asking about my mirrors but he never answered.
    Since this thread will be in the archives, to make the story complete for anyone searching for "GTO mirrors", I'll post the mail from Mr. Carpenter I received today without further comments. I have drawn my conclusion, you can draw your own. I'm not intending to answer Mr. Carpenters' mail so if you're looking for a pair of mirrors, he has them.

    friday 5 dec 2003:

    Finally the glass came in for the mirrors I know you have charged back the
    payment but if you are still interested they are ready to go and can be
    shipping tomorrow I will pay the shipping for the inconvenience that I
    caused Here are the pictures I am sorry for the delay thanks Jim

    Yeah, I had to tell him that on x date I would be hiring someone to file a small claims case, it got the parts shipped. The parts were a good price and look nice, just a pain to get them shipped. Later I bought a tach on ebay from racer308 not realizing it was the same person....it didn't work, but it was only $50 and looked very nice so I kept it... I glued the guts out of a $25 sun tach into the case and it's fine now.

    Race308 had a throttle body for a 308gtsi listed and I asked if he had one for my 328 as he had a Microplex listed for a 328 he replied he did, but he sent me the 308 tb, I finally got a hold of him told him I needed a 328tb or my money back, i could tell by the way he was hesitating and not answering I wouldn't get it back so I had Kermit bore it out and modify it anyway, he had to weld some pieces to it.

    I wouldn't buy from him again he's very shady.
