Any one dealt with Rotorlab?

EDIT: finally talked to him over the phone just now, he's been taking time off and apparently Im still 11th in the queue , hopefully I get the brakes soon.

Has anyone on here dealt with Rotorlab?

I purchased an 18Z front and rear brake kit from him back in the beginning of June and thought I'd check up on how they're coming along by emailing him last night with a quick "hey how are the brakes I ordered turning out?". No response. Shot him a call and went to voicemail. Left a brief message and my call back number, hopefully i get a response by the end of this week :/

Im aware he isnt running it at "retail" standards, but damn Im pretty bummed at the lack of contact, after I've purchased them. Friends are calling me an idiot for "walking into a scam that easily", but idk I trust the guy and after all, we made the transaction with paypal goods and services so Im not too worried.

Just wondering if anyone has purchased from him and has some feedback concerning Rotorlab, thanks.

Ive never worked with him, but did he tell you a estimated lead time before you ordered?
11th in queue still after a month and half waiting is a bit long imo... he should probably limit his orders to a couple per month if he isnt fully committed to doing them. Just My opinion.

There are people that have purchased from him on here. It does take some time to get it ordered as it's just him and one other guy building these kits. There's always downsides to good deals.

Yeah he informed me 7-8 weeks when I ordered them, its been 7 so far and I hadnt gotten a word from him til last night after I tried to reach him. He informed me he has been limiting his queue shortly after me and telling folks to call back in a month or so due to the overwhelming demand. Im going to have to wait , really dont have any other choice.

I have no experience with this guy. Hope it works out for you. One thing to consider is Paypal may not help you since so much time has past. You might want to check with them on that.

I had my done from them last year. I was 7th in Que and it took 9 Weeks.
I didnt have the best experience with them.
First off: the epoxy paint looks good, but it is soft and not great at protecting and a drop of brake fluid will ruin the paint.
Second: The hardware is not treated correctly and will rust the first time water hits.
Third: After a year the Seals started leaking around 1 of the pistons.

Rob over there informed me if its not broke they do not fix it. So not all seals are fully replaced.
You get what you pay for, but if i was to do it again i would by a proper brake set up.

Damn, yeah he told me about the paint which I found a bit odd. Im still waiting in the queue, maybe I shouldve shelled out a bit more money and bought something else :/

If you have second thoughts & are still in the queue maybe it is time to leave the queue?

I bought a set from him. He does take a long time. I haven't used mine yet as the car is still under construction so I can't comment on his rebuild but they are easy to rebuild if I have any issues. The weak point is the paint, looks very nice but I don't think it is going to hold up well but we will see.

Problem is I already paid the guy and probably wouldn't receive all my money back :/.
