I think this thread has served its purpose..

it sucks that we lost a vendor, and it sucks that whatever it was took over Wayne's life. Good luck to him in the future.

Yeah your right.... I'm going to leave this open though until I hear otherwise from the ADMIN as Wayne's account is still set to 'FF AFFILIATE' which I believe expires soon. With that said, I checked his account again, still hasn't logged in since the middle of August.

As mentioned, his contract will not be renewed on this site but regardless, I hope he comes on here and at least comes clean with this.

Expect this thread to be locked up soon though..........

AMEN! I guess I was one of the members who 'deserved it' by the responses I received when I had legitimate issues with Wayne.

First off, I'd like to say that I had no problems with Wayne when I wanted to purchase an item. It was usually sent out within 2 days. Great service, no problem!

However, my problems started when I purchased an XCal from him and had issues with the tune. I got a couple updates when I asked, but then they seemed to come to a halt. I decided to get an XCal 2 to see if datalogging would find the problem.

My XCal 2 wasn't working out of the box and I sent it back. People were calling me a 'noob' and telling me I wasn't doing it correctly - even though I had programmers for 2 previous vehicles and tinkered with the adjustable parameters MANY times and NEVER had any issues playing with the tune.

*Whatever*

I waited a month before I let out how I felt, receiving my 'fixed' XCal2 nearly 2 months after I sent it out to get fixed. It didn't work again so I sent it back and didn't hear from Wayne for like 3 months (I know my 'Free tunes for 6 months' was comming to an end)! Then again, I sent out the nasty posts and a few called me a jerk (For having a legitimate complaint/issue? Nice guy, sure. Good business man from my perspective, no.).

Ended up getting a Predator/Tune from Tom and haven't had ANY problem getting a reply in a timely manner.

I feel bad for a friend who purchased the XCal2 from me, only because he is having the same problem with Wayne as I did.

I hope nobody had the opportunity to experience the ordeal I did, however it seems like more than a few have since I stopped looking in his forum.

Just as he wrote about what he wanted and how he wanted.

I dont even know what you meant to prove with that? It makes sense though doesnt it? you Buy the ticket, you take the ride. If you didnt want to take the ride why you buy the ticket? Unless your life is full of half lived fantasies that you never really had the nerve to follow through on.

Next time... before you base your statements off a lil news blurb on a website, how about you actually do some reaserch.

i was asking a question. If i intended to make a point, i would have made it.

watch who your calling ignorant broseph.

I would rather keep it open until Wayne can post on it.


just my .02

I wasnt really a Hypnotic customer (bought 1 tune from him a long while back, with no problems) but I am curious as to what happened.

I'll close it on October 1st as that was the date I was told by the ADMIN previously that things would be finalized.

True but in all honestly, he is around, if he was at the show the other day, I'm sure he has time to jump on a computer and make a 30 second post. He's been gone since mid August, that's over 6 weeks or so he's had a chance to come in here and drop a line.

His area of the forum as already been removed from this site and by October 1st, I believe all other entities of the contract are expired.
