Hereís a couple of memes Iíve saved, and Philís latest post from earlier today.
I find the hangover memes to be the funniest, it seems much fitting with Phil and Doug as the main characters.

Don’t forget to review Torq Motorsports on Google maps. Also hit up their messenger, instagram DMs, and email both [email protected] & [email protected]. Don’t ask questions, just get in the van!!!

I guess I don't see it that way. It seems pretty obvious that Doug has been trying to get a refund for quite some time, with little success. Having quite literally thousands of people blasting Torq on various avenues in just over a few days might make them care a little bit more than 1 guy hounding them. Plus, it puts the Buyer Beware message in plenty of people's heads. I like the product that Torq is selling, even though I'll likely never have a rig worthy of that type of axle. After this fuck-up though, I'm sure there's a lot of people that were considering Torq, that are now looking elsewhere.

Take a look at what happened with Ballistic Fab awhile back on this board. They went from a supporting member of the forum to basically going off the grid after this Pirate crew got done with them. I see the same thing happening with Torq. This much negative publicity is hard to come back from.

It's 15k, you get a lead time, and you stay on top of it.
In my business, if a vendor takes my money, they damn sure better deliver when they say. If they don't, i call them daily. It's not that hard to get people to understand you're serious. I understand that you become complacent with the answers they give you after delivery day and no delivery, but damn 15k for a down payment on toys? He should've went straight up the chain and talked to a more important idiot, or started a lawsuit. Waiting 2 years and getting nothing sucks, but torq isn't the only guilty party.
If im wrong and he called and emailed every day, then that's that, I'll eat crow, but i doubt I'll need to. Post up the rest of the emails so we can see the correspondence back and forth. I see they were trying to push the 14 bolt thirds on him, but he said no. It seems line they kept going on about the 14 bolts though. I think we're missing some of the emails.
Honestly, i feel bad for him, but wonder if the whole story is out there for everyone

So you're on a forum complaining about people on the internet? Or he didn't call/email enough, he needs to get a backbone and call/email more? That really shows you mean business? You're a little vague still.

Phil said this morning that Doug and the axle dude had a chat, axle dude said "maybe" 4-6 months to get him some money but he better call off the dogs or he'll sue Doug for slander, and hell spend every last penny to do it.

How do you sue a person for slander when it's everyone else doing it ?

I'm thinking they will get a double barrel middle finger to that response. They obviously don't know pirate or their customers that well..

Hope Torq doesn't have a lot of sunroofs....

Oh....making threats? Damn, this could escalate things real quickly.

No complaints, only observations. With the info given in this thread i came up with my conclusion that the guy should've been on top of this long before the 2 year mark, like legal action? Torq is not in the right here, but Doug isn't either. Isn't the old saying, 2 wrongs don't make a right? This isn't a very good resolution to the situation, and now torq is talking about suing Doug? Sounds like he is in quite a pickle at the moment. Hope he gets his money back though

LOL. For every 37,000,000 threatened law suit there might be 1.

Can't come up with $15k but threatens a $20-40k lawsuit.

yep, I agree with you. It is all the buyer's fault for not calling everyday. that would have magically made those axles appear. it's fact

If he doesnt have $15k how does he have money to pay a lawyer for a frivolous lawsuit? Lawyers dont take slander cases on contingency.

How is it Slander when it's not a lie?

If this statement is true, it's an admission.
