    Vendor was moved here after being ran off of other forums for failing to deliver the goods after taking everyone's money in a group buy.

    Elite Off-Road I'm guessing was ran off of a site then tried to make this home. Just a guess. Backstory anyone?

    I'll dig up the full backstory - but it was a group buy that became a rip off on that tard warld. There was no defense for taking all the money and then disappearing.

    Seen many people "kickstart" their companies by offering Group buys to tards when they have never even manufactured anything yet let alone have a shop to do so.

    "Hey guys, 100 people give me $400 so I can get you a deal in 6 months" and they still bite. lol

    Watch our for Primsu racks. Guys ripping people off and not shipping products. When they do ship the fab is fubar.

    Then I'm glad to have posted it. Guys in a "secret fakebook" group were losing their shit last night. Linked a thread on TW and it sounded bad. They referenced another Elite type situation. Dudes not shipping products or responding to inquires after charging peoples credit cards.....at the same time he's throwing group buys to new customers to collect more peoples money. Sounds like a typical pyramid scheme.

    All hearsay so take it with a grain of salt - I don't know the guy or company at all.

    That's weird. I have a Prinsu rack and have met the owner (forget his name) in person at Rock Therapy. I wonder what's going on.

    They did have a lot of group buys going at one time for a smaller company. Was it @unevolved that recently did get a rack from them?

    It's one of the Prinsu owners threads. I have no access to those accounts from work (on purpose lol). Thread is locked now awaiting the owners response to everyone's fraud claims. People are legally going after him for illegally taking payment via CC then not supplying any ship dates and being non-responsive for weeks after taking their money.

    I feel dirty following that link.... felt even dirtier when I posted on there last night. I just stopped by to harass a mod who thinks his sh*t don't stink.

    Yeah, I got mine in reasonable time, and I was (am) real happy with it. I remember reading somewhere the guy was an engineer that was doing the roof rack stuff in his spare time, and it sounds like he got in WAY over his head. Wasn't able to keep up with demand and sort of just shut down.

    Thats too bad.. seemed like a great product.

    Edit.. from what I've seen it's a great product.

    Yeah, I'd agree. Hopefully he can salvage his reputation. It's an elegant design, two formed aluminum side rails and a bunch of off-the-shelf 8020 rails and hardware. So I'm not super concerned as an owner if he goes under, I can always just buy hardware from McMaster that works with it.

    Hopefully he gets it all squared away and everyone is happy enough.

    He does have a beautiful design to his roof racks.

    Yeah I hope he works it out. Truth being told I'd pay full price for one... as long as I got it.
