We just wanted to send this message to express the unethical way that Sunbelt Technologies has conducted business with Riley Racing. We hired Sunbelt to prepare and develop our Volvo racing engines, and 6 months later, we received our engines back with engine parts thrown into a crate (connecting rods, pistons, crankshaft, bolts, etc.), never run, and Sunbelt still has $11,000 of our money. We have given Sunbelt an additional two and a half months to return our monies, and to date they have not even returned our calls.<p>We have since then found another engine builder, L&B Engine Development, and are having great success with this operation. We are pleased with their progress and development with our Volvo engine. <p>Because of this 5 month period of being lied to and cheated by Sunbelt, plus an additional month of getting our parts back, our car has not been able to compete in any events yet this year.<p>We will be making our debut as soon as the car is finished, which even with this setback should be within the next month.<br>

Re: Riley Racing Update (prodriver)

Ill build it for you <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Its a shame when people go back on their word but it is all too common place these days, especially in a very competitive business like racing.<p>Do you guys still plan on running at Road Atlanta? I am going to be there all weekend and would love to check out the car and meet the face behind the name. <p>Best of Luck Jameson and if there is anything that I or the swedespeed community can do to help then let us know. We need more Volvo's Racing!!

Argh! No engine!? Well, thanks for the update. We've been wondering.<p>Does "next month" == Mosport?<p>Tom.

Re: Riley Racing Update (tmtalpey)

Mosport is a possibility...Road Atlanta race is more likely. 6 months were literally wasted because of Sunbelt Technologies, and now L&B is having to work overtime to get it finished. L&B is doing a great job, and has already some successful pulls on the dyno. Remember, with this Volvo engine, everything is custom...all ECU information is being written for the first time with a Motec ECU with this engine, so it is time consuming.<p>JR
