Greg Weld/ RaceStar Industries Wheels & Info
Thanks for the info on the lug nuts & washers....
I made an attempt to contact RaceStar Industries (both phone & E-mail)to inquire about their wheels (as a match to the 2 rear Greg Welds I had already purchased)
I inquired about the lug nuts & washers they recommend, using anti-sieze on the washers, what improvements they had made to the wheels since they were now making them etc.
Let me tell you what....I have NEVER dealt with a bigger dic#head in my life. The guy at RaceStar industries offered ZERO help, ZERO advice, ZERO solutions, ZERO information about improvements to the wheels, ZERO knowledge of any kind....
He was completely oblivious (or at least he pretended he was) to the prior issues of the Greg Weld Wheels....he was defensive about anything/everything.....
All he wanted to do was slam wheels out the door....
Since I had already bought the rear set of Greg Weld's I really wanted to keep on that track and finish out the set with 2 RaceStar skinnys....but after talking & e-mailing with that total jerk...I was not about to put a nickel toward RaceStars.
A couple days later I attended the Bradenton, Fla NMRA event where I spoke to several racers, saw Race Stars on several cars, talked to the guys at BlowByRacing....ended up purchasing the 2 RaceStar skinnys and 20 new open-ended lugs & washers from BlowByRacing.
I'm hoping to finish my car up & get it to the track in the next 3-4 weeks...I'll let you know how things go with the wheels & lugs.
Regardless....If I'm making recommendations to a friend....I would tell them to STEER CLEAR of RaceStar Industries...they are a bunch of as$holes!
Stick with a reputable wheel builder and you won't have to worry, jump through hoops,take special precautions, and lose sleep over something as simple as bolting wheels on your car. This is a clear case of.....YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!
DONT BUY: Anything from Pro-M, LRS non-ford authorized resto parts, MSD EFI distributor (302), McLeod hydro clutch kit.
