Race Ready will be called RR. First I am a car guy, I worked in auto repair grade school, JR High and High school, as an adult I use shops now. Having multiple cars I took one of my cars to RR to try them out. I knew what was probably going to need to be replaced but also needed a compression test to determine next step, new turbo or new motor and turbo. Was told by RR that the compression test numbers were very low. While still within spec they were low enough that any professional would probably replace the motor. I did not believe the numbers could be so bad. RR said the person who did the test knows what they are doing and does many compression tests. He did state that it was possible that the test was wrong, but said the compression tester was the same they use on other cars and had for years and it was always right, but maybe on my car it was not. I asked him to look into it and he said he would. I asked him to pull the car outside and await further instruction before doing anything else. I called a very well known mechanic in my circle and he stated if the compression test was as bad as stated my motor was shot. He sent me detailed instructions on how to do a correct compression test which I forwarded to RR, with request to test again. RR responded that they knew how to do the test, they work on thousands of cars a year and this is a simple test. As a result, when they re tested my car, low and behold the compression was much higher and my motor was fine. I requested to continue to do what was requested. I will skip to the end when I picked up my car. When I started my car the check engine light came on. Turned car off, went inside and told RR. He said he knew it, and had zeroed out the code previously. Stated they put in a new Rear O2 sensor and it must be bad. Return next week and they will replace it. I returned next week. After looking over car I was told me there were three codes and none of them were their fault. They looked over their work and there was no issue with what they had done. There was nothing they did that would have caused the codes to be showing. RR (Chris, owner) gave three reasons what could be causing the codes. They were so silly I could not believe it. I truly don't know why he thought I would believe them. One was because whoever worked on my exhaust previously pt the rear O2 sensor was way to far back and Chris felt this was also causing a code. It was STOCK exhaust. Chris ultimately though my computer was bad. I new it was not and offered to send it back to company to find out instantly if it was bad or not. He said I should not do that yet. He did offer to "tear into it, the car" his words and see if they could find out what could be causing the issue. RR was willing to charge me over $100 an hr diagnostic time to try to find the issue. I said no I would take it somewhere else. Took car to Walt's automotive in Punta Gorda. Within a few hrs found out, with pictures RR had pinched 3 wires between the bell housing and engine. This was done when they put the bell housing back on. Problem fixed and no check engine light. Look shops are people and they make mistakes. Making a mistake is not the issue, but how you handle that mistake is what counts. A good shop would tear the car apart to find the issue before releasing to the customer. A dishonest shop would do just what RR did. Deny fault but offer to allow you to spend more money to see if the new problem can be found. Stay away from Race Ready, use Walts in Punta Gorda instead. Tell them Allan Densmore sent ya.

Race Ready’s customer service had been an absolute dream to work with in an otherwise not pleasant situation. They made things as easy for us as they possibly could and were knowledgeable, professional and reliable. Unfortunately due to a warranty contract we had to have our vehicle towed to the dealership for repairs and we absolutely wish we could have stayed with Race Ready!
