I too had a negative experience with him, although not as bad as the ones in this thread. I just found him to do sloppy work. I always recommend Jon at TrackSpec in Fremont. He does all my work.

Wow, they really wear out that quickly? I mean 8x15 is 120min - that's like one trackday. So basically 4 trackdays and they're done? That's horrible.
