You should have seen the "flameage" going on in his forums over the last couple weeks.
I wouldn't doubt he killed the site himself to stop the bad publicity.

I can't believe how much money I wasted paying him for tunes he didn't send me. I hope he goes out of business because he was running a hell of a scam

Yeah I paid for a tune and it works alright but I'm having some problems with it when I first start up in the mornings when it's cold and tried to contact him about it and only got through twice to him and nothing got done. I will be going to Tom from now on.

To bad that he can't just do what's right and let people know what's going on himself and not having everyone else talk to HIS customers for him.

I have nothing but good things to say about the guy. Its unfortunate that whatever circumstance has cause this recent lack of customer service and the possible end of his business. When he was around his customer service was excellent. I got the chance to meet him at the last G2G I went to and he is an awesome person. He always helped me when I needed it, sent me new tunes, I always got stuff through him and always shipped on time and at an awesome price. For one thing he is not running a scam. Who knows what is going on down there, but he would never intentionally do anything like that. I just hope we can hear from him sometime and get the story. Until then, sorry to those that have had bad service and hope to hear from him sometime again.
