I always found it frustrating how he didn't offer paypal. I was part of the group buy when he was taking deposits for the clear "toms" tail lights but that fell through and he was offering two options - get refunded or put the deposit towards original toms and pay the difference. I immediately sent him a PM asking for refund. After not hearing from him after a month I noticed that he made a thread with everybody's name that made a deposit. I think if you asked for a refund he put your name blue or if you wanted the original toms he put red. My name as well as a few others were black which means he never got a respond from us. What really bothered me was, if he didn't get a respond, why the hell doesn't he contact us asking what we want to do?! It's almost as he wanted us to forget and just let him keep the money. I started talking to him through PM and he told me his bank had already processed the refund and that I should be getting it by this day. When the day came I didn't get the money. This happened a couple times! I started getting frustrated so I was like hey, I have PayPal, just send me the money through paypal. His response was that he didn't have PayPal, and that he will have a friend send me the money if the bank doesn't come through. Who the hell doesn't have at least a personal PayPal account if you do business on the internet or if you make lots of purchases online? I don't understand! I got my refund after a few more weeks of waiting. I would never do business with him after that. Just thinking about it makes me frustrated.

Has anyone been able to get a hold of this shyster? I ordered from him Feb. 07, and I haven't received my order. I emailed him and tried calling, but no response.

You won't receive it... Just file a claim through your bank. He's gone, so is his shady self-employed "business"...

It has come to my attention the 86-zn6.com is back up and running, so as President of the Norcal Owners Club (NOC) I would like to post the following statement:

JR (aka 86-ZN6.com and 86Industries) is not currently affiliated with the NOC in any way. Proceeds from NOC merchandise purchased from him do not benefit the club in any way and go entirely to his business. We are attempting to have all NOC merchandise removed from his website at this time, but have been unable to as of this moment. New club merchandise is in the works and will be sold/distributed by current board members (@PMok @MyRx, @BunnyRZed, @NorCalGirl, and me) or our clearly assigned designees, of which 86-ZN6.com is not and will not be at any foreseeable point in the future. Please be aware that you are not supporting the club with these transactions and we as a board are working to get new club merchandise available to you as soon as possible.

Hi, Iím PMok, cofounder of NorCal 86DRIVE. Weíre a non-profit, community oriented car and driving club for the NorCal community. Hopefully many of you have met me or been to our website, or joined us on one of our drives.

User 86_ZN6, also known as 86 Industries, as a sponsoring vendor on these forums, previously partnered with 86DRIVE to offer t-shirts and decals bearing the 86DRIVE logo and name, as a means of fundraising for our club. Many local members purchased t-shirts and decals through his business in order to support our club, and for that we are very grateful.

Unfortunately, there have been issues with 86_ZN6ís business dealings. He has subsequently been banned from the FT86Club forums and ceased all contact with his customers, leaving many of them to file chargebacks to their banks and credit cards due to unfulfilled orders. For a time his online storefront website was removed and he apparently ceased all business activity.

However, we have noted that recently his website has come back online. He seems to have removed most if not all of his contact information from the site but the storefront is active as far as I can tell. So it appears that the store is operational and visitors can make purchases from it.

86DRIVE has, in the interests of preserving its own reputation and goodwill, disassociated itself from 86_ZN6 or 86 Industries. We have sent him written notice that our limited license to use the 86DRIVE logo and name has been revoked and asked him to remove all mention of 86DRIVE from his storefront. To date we have not received any response from him. So his storefront continues to assert that he is an authorized dealer for various brands and manufacturers, including 86DRIVE, and his store may be offering things like t-shirts, decals and hoodies for sale bearing the 86DRIVE name and logo.

This is simply a public notice to any potential shoppers at the 86_ZN6 site. The operator of that site does not have permission to use our name or logo, nor to sell any products bearing our name or logo. Any purchase of such products will not benefit the 86DRIVE non-profit organization and so we discourage anyone from purchasing such products through that site. Please donít be misled. If you have any questions about 86DRIVE or the authenticity of any 86DRIVE merchandise, please feel free to contact me at info @ 86drive . com.

Thanks for reading and thanks for your continued support.

It really sucks that a community member did shit like this.

I'm not sure if I'm more mad about that, or the fact he has a prototype Works turbo kit that I was very interested in. And now I have no one to ask about it.

I am really sorry to hear that Chris, we have missed seeing you at the drives and meets. The new leadership is painfully aware of the damage that's already been caused to the community and is doing what it can to regain the trust of the membership. Hopefully you'll see the changes are positive ones, and hope to see you out on some of the drives again this summer.

Just contact Pete at works directly.

I had been dropping in to the shop on regular basis. But have too busy lately. It was a slow process. At one point we had plans to use my girlfriends FRS as a 2nd guinea pig car.
It seemed like JR had concerns about his car not getting done if we got involved and I haven't heard crap about the process in months.

Thank you P! Part of no showing at meets is my commitment at work on Saturdays... Anyway, will try to go out next time.

I will, but I know he is very busy. I had just heard that the kit was having its issues. Not sure if it was tuning or hardware related. But it did look very good at the SF autoshow.

The little I know. It seems to be car owner issues more than development. I plan on dropping by for the lemons race and will drop by works as well.
