Okay so I saw this auction on ebay for aftermarket high horsepower halfshafts for the 1.9L. I knew they had to be custom made somewhere so I asked who made them so I could look into getting some for my EGT. I know once I boost up to 14psi my drivetrain is not going to be that friendly with me.

Here´s a copy of our email correspondence and how rude he was, and how he insulted ALL of us on here. I say dont buy from him....even though the half shafts could be quite appealing.

axles, because I´m planning on pushing the boost up to 14psi and I´m worried
about the drivetrain.

Hello,

I apologize, but I dont due posts or forums. All the knowledge and
custom work I did to achieve 290+hp and the current 340hp 1.98 ZVH project
was attained from extensive research and personal experience. Discussing
ways to boost performance by adding a Home Depot leaf blower to the intake
isnt exactly my idea of a serious tunist. But you can go to
www.driveshaftshop.com and they´ll be more than happy to assist you in your
axle selection. Thanx for check´n out the aftermarket axles and Good Luck.

And look at that he can slam a person, but can´t even sign HIS OWN NAME TO IT.

I say screw him and let everyone know what he´s really like. Imagine if there was a problem with shipping and you had to deal with him....think he´d care ?

Well from looking at his Feedback rating..he´s been an [email protected]@hole to a few other people, and reading what they described (rude, vulgar and just plain nasty), this guy isn´t worth dealing with. Blade, just find out where this jerkoff works, stop by, smoke his weak dumb ass w/ your badass turbo Scort and laugh going back home.
Of course, get the shafts from another place before you do race him.

good idea donnie I would be up for doing that. I can´t beleive he actually thanked you for looking in to his half shaft after he just put you down like that. what an ass. Reaserch?? I bet he had someone do the work for them and he just watched, thats probably the extent of his reaserch.

Yeah, he´s an ass. Sucks to be him. No in my response email I sent after posting up, I told him how rude I thought he was, then appologized because I guess I could understand the "I put an intake and exhaust and got 20HP because I drive a Civic DX" attitude, and sent him the link to my homepage, and then told him to check out the FEOA anyhow. I´m just hoping he sees this post when he does visit


Yeah I try not to brag about how much better my car is over someone elses with a "know it all" attitude, because I´ve found there are alot of people that really know their stuff, they just dont have the time or cash to make it all work. I just feel lucky I was able to go the hard road and do the turbo install, learn about it, and now spend the months hating how its not working right and learning how to trouble shoot it.

Yeah blade I wish i had the time and money to go that route with the turbo. I have been looking through the junk yards for a turbo but they usually go pretty fast when they come in. But I want to turbo my scort in the worst way. To do it your self is the best way to learn naything, even the all the problems that come with it are a good education.

I´m a dick.... I just sent him a message asking him the most rediculous question that I´m sure he´ll balk at. This should be good.

Fuel for the fire.... read below and please laugh heartily..... what a jackass.

I disagree with you 100%. I know quite a few Escort power enthusiasts who have Escorts ranging from 1.8L turbo-charged models, guys who are looking at importing the Laser from Australian (AWD turbo), guy who have dropped Taurus SHO engines in their Escorts, etc. All of whom are not "loners" and are more than happy to share their knowledge and experiences with the rest of us aspiring "ultimate sleeper car" owners. I myself had completed and documented numerous modifications to both Gen 1 and Gen 2 escorts and have no problem sharing those with the rest of the community at www.feoa.net. Don´t get me wrong, if you don´t want to share your knowledge, that´s fine. I´m sure you´ve worked long and hard to obtain everything you know to make your Escort an 11 second car. However, for you to make such a generalization regarding the rest of us Escort Power Enthusiasts is both unfounded and ludicrous. I have no doubt that I can get custom half-shafts manufactured at just about any speed shop willing to give it a try as I know that I can bring them multiple orders for a product that they will spend the time manufacturing. In closing, thank you for your prompt response to my question, but I disagree with your generalization and I look forward to seeing you on the track.

Hello,

Uhhh, no. Those of us who own Escorts and are true power enthusiasts, are loners. Everyone underestimates the Escort until they see low 11´s. You might wanna try http://www.driveshaftshop.com to see if they can suit your needs. Thanx

Got another response from the guy... This is great. All I really wanted to know is if he knew of somewhere else I could get the half-shafts, since I wouldn´t be buying them from him. I understand he probably wants to sell his, but I wouldn´t buy from anyone with an attitude like his. I´m actually enjoying this.

Once again, refusing to even sign with his OWN NAME, but a "Team" Name, or at least I "thought" he was a loner and didn´t do the "Team," "Club," "Association" kind of thing ?
