Oh but you can still order on Ebay but the feed back is looking kind of shady recently.

Can we stick a fork in this one? Not really sure why everyones so sad about this vendor going away.

By most accounts, they're done. Last I heard, there was a chained padlock on the door to their (former) shop. We removed their sponsor logo several months ago after they bounced the sponsor check on us.

The amazing thing is that I understand they've still got stuff advertized on eBay, so beware YB-Performace = NACS.

Despite all the denials, (Daz was "King of Denial"!) they're LONG gone.
I feel for anyone still awaiting stuff, but the writing was on the wall for a LONG time.
Unless things have changed VERY recently, Ebay STILL hasn't removed the auctions, despite several people telling them they're gone. Wait'll THEY try to get paid. :lol:
It's not a hobby, it's an obsession!

Just had a long phone call from an Irish fellow in Boston yesterday who told me they got him for $14500 for a wicked ass normal aspirated YB Cossie motor and about 9K on other stuff.
He said he has more current phone and has banking details ( a key thing to help track them down), I said I know people in Vancouver very close by who may be able to check and advise.

I thought all along there was too much obviously wrong hype.

A fellow from Salem in Oregon bought a roller 86 shell and a really sweet all black interior from me last year and he said he was getting some ultimate spec YBG 4x4 powerplant but when he came to pick up the shell he said dayum I had more blocks, heads, gearboxes , crossmembers diffs etc laying around than he saw there.

I can't find my phone logs for the guy, it would be good to see if he wants to chase them, too.

Gotta initiate some sort of serious legal action before they disappear back to UK where the law seems to condone financial criminals.


Anybody know somebody in Oregon who was planning on a big 4x4 conversion?

FYI - you still have them listed (+ link) on the "Our Vendors Page" off the MCA main page.

Thanks for the heads-up Mike - I guess we only got them off the home page - they'll be jettisoned from there as well.
