    I am staying out of this one, Linracing was one of our biggest trolls for a while. When they first showed up they wanted to buy flanges from us then flaked out on payment, after that he trolled almost every single post we made hard, then out of nowhere 2 months later, he is back in our posts congratulating us and being generally cordial. No idea where any of it came from and it really isn't a big deal. No comment on manifold design or price.

    Edit: Just read the rest of the stuff about the shady tatics he is using, if this doesn't scare anyone away from this kit not sure what else will.

    Is there a way to verify that linracing is infact these other people? IP check?

    This really seems pretty $#@!ty.

    Nvm I see that its a matching number here

    He said he took screen shots of the website but didn't post them, also people said he was issuing refunds in the same thread

    I don't think this kind of thing is necessary. The thread is enough.

    I agree I would hate to put 6k into a kit with this kind of background. I would stay as far away from this kit as I could unless I lived local to him and also had direct info as to where the business location was so if I had any issues with welds, fitment, anything I could attempt to resolve them. The easiest way to avoid any issues is to spend $1-3k more and buy your Ventura Motorsports kit, FFTEC, Vargas Stage 3, etc.

    What scams was he doing selling plasti dip? Fake Plasti dip?
    No scams involved with Plastidip. Just do some reading and searching you will find out what I am talking about. I have been scammed from him when I was buying parts for a local friend. I got scammed bc nothing was sent out after the payment and I had to eat it up even though I was trying to help out a close friend and not make a single penny. It left a bitter taste in my mouth since I was trying to help someone fronting the cost of parts but it backfired and I had to eat up the loss since my friend never paid me.

    There are many more threads about his scamming elsewhere. He has a long history and record of doing the same things. I just didnt want to post the threads from e90post on here bc usually Sticky will delete them. Ask Sticky what his old usernames and IP addresses were, that will show you exactly what I am talking about.

    J_hynson sent me a link to this thread this last night. To clear things up, lin is NOT the owner of znsperformance. Lin helped us and provided his car as a test car for our prototype kit. J_hynson is doing a full review on our kit soon. This needed to be cleared up.

    Our team here at zns is small and we aren't making much from this top mount kit. We have since acquired a 135i to build abottom mount kit.

    @NJrep335i

    i completely forgot about that fiasco! Thanks for reminding me. I didn't put this together it was the same guy. I ended up getting a refund from PayPal and they supposedly locked his account. Unfortunately for him the same day he sent me a refund from a 2nd PayPal account and I got double my money back. lol. I emailed him and tried to make it right and give him the money that was double refunded and I got no reply. Unfortunately others weren't so lucky in getting any form of money back.

    Well this is good to know. Do you plan on becoming a supporting vendor here? Have you guys made your name on any other platforms?

    Is he involved in any way with business operations? Any way at all? Why has he been portraying himself somewhat differently here regarding business development regarding this kit?

    LIN has no ownership in ZNS... his was one of the first cars the kit was tried on...people need to get their $#@! straight

    My kit should be arriving here in the next week or so.. Keith was even nice enough to pay for over night shipping once its done and has been sending me pictures of all the progress.

    Even on my thread its ridiculous with all the $#@! talking that's been going on from all the better known "professional" vendors just because VNS is the new kid on the block producing similar products.

    all I have I have to say is when I produce the same "dyno numbers" that these other kits produce im going to be doing a lot of calling out to all the people who talked $#@! on the competition and a lot of bragging about how much money I didn't spend to produce the same results. Ill probably get banned but whatever

    Yeah no doubt. I'm pretty sure you'll get banned for dyno numbers.

    For the record linracing was placed in a guest vendor account for advertising these kits with links through PM's. So I don't understand the 'no involvement' at this point.

    this was the exact email I just received a few hours ago.

    Yes we just tried setting up an account to clear
    up some information they habe about our business. Lin aka (linracing) is NOT
    the owner of our business his car was one of the first cars tested and he worked
    closely with us on the kit. Now they are stating lin is the owner which is
    just stupid and the admin will not even activate our account so we can correct
    this.

    @Sticky you yourself have even shown that some stuff in this thread has been pretty ridiculous. im just adding my piece.

    Anyways so far I have had a very pleasing experience with ZNS performance. sorry for those who haven't..

    still no reason for "professional vendors" to act the way they have recently

    Good point Sticky. It is kind of weird why Lin was trying to advertise a product if he's not part of ZNS. Anyways, good luck to all future customers that consider this product!

    He was probably going to get a cut of every kit that he sold himself. No one advertises and tries to sell a product for free unless they are getting a kick back.
