Modern Motorsports - anyone recently placed an order?

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Has anyone successfully placed an order on modern-Motorsports.com?

I've been trying for a couple months with no luck.

I get to the shipping address section of the checkout process, hit Next and can't proceed further, it always returns me back to the same window.

I've emailed them repeatedly about this and the only answer I get is a semi-automated one saying the webmaster will have the cart issue resolved in a couple days... But it's been over 2 months...

Anyone else having this issue?

I tested on both Safari & Firefox to see if maybe it was a web browser issue and got the same result...

You might be lucky that your order didn't go through. Apparently the owner has not been very responsive in the recent past.

Wow... what a thread...

bummer, too...

I've gone out an bought 89-94 240SX calipers and a set of 83-84 300ZX rotors and all I need is Ross' bracket to complete my rear disc swap...

If he's not answering emails (or his phone, I just checked and it rang and rang), has anyone made a similar bracket with the correct spacing for this combination?

Thanks,

I have had similar problems with obtaining 300ZX CV adaptors, I have sent him the cores along with a personal check, his preferred method of payment, for the modified adaptors and shipping costs and frankly don't know where I stand. I did get several emaisl - copied below. Perhaps he's just resetting his operation and all will work out.

Ross has also indicated that his machining operations fro the modified ones and billets are performed "back East". I followed the instructions on his website.

I have quite allot invested in getting a set of 300ZX CV axles and getting them rebuilt, is there an other source.

Ed, thanks for your notes and apologies for our slow replies.

The mated sets are not a v. quick item for us to turn around. We'll

confirm receipt of our cores later today and then they'll ship back to

US on Tues (long weekend here coming) with an extra charge related.

Then be welded up their etc. Billet's typical choice of vast majority

but we retain the welded option as a lower cost choice.

I know accountant hasn't deposited your check, I'll look for it.

Paypal's certainly simpler, can we upgrade you to billet and discount

it $35 as aid to our slow responses?

So after months of trying to place an order on the site and having no luck due to some issues with the way the site was programmed, I did actually get through successfully on Fri May 20. I ordered a set of the rear disc adapters (minus rotors) for $315. I followed all the instructions on the site and have received an order confirmation email with order # and so on...

Now it's been two weeks and so far no news about when they might be shipping out.

The phone number listed in the hybridz thread just rings and rings and rings

i've tried calling it at different times of the day

emails are going un-answered too, whether i use the contact form on their site, or if I email them direct...

We'll see what happens...

I'll update if parts turn up or if I give up on waiting and seek a refund through paypal

I received an email from Ross yesterday with a link to PayPal. So I just bought a set of billet flange adapters, hopefully all this will come to a happy ending. Otherwise I am stuck since I sent him my flange adapters as cores and would not be able to use the stock drive shafts. He is suppose to give me credit for the cores and applied to the billets.

Thanks, EdK

I haven't dealt with Modern Motorsports, but this subject keeps coming up. Does anyone think it would be valuable to have a Forum to review and list vendors?? Sorry for the hi-jack.

Great parts, nice guy, but don't expect much in the way of responsiveness. Go into it assuming it will take 3-6 months from your first inquiry to getting your parts. At least that was my experience.

I've now received most of my parts!

I ordered the rear disc conversion bracket kit (brackets + hardware + clevis pin conversion + brake lines + kvr pads but without rotors) on May 20.

I received the KVR brake pads straight from the manufacturer on Friday June 17.

I received the brackets + hardware but without brake lines from Ross today June 23.

I'll give him a call and ask if the brake lines are coming direct from a third party vendor...

Yes, like Adam said, it does take a while, but the stuff does get there in the end...

I have been on this thing since beginning May, about 1 1/2 weeks ago I received the hardware for the

CV flange adapters. So, things seem to be slowly moving along. Hopefully Quicker than 3-6 mos.

BTW: How's the quality of the parts received?

I've now received everything. The brake lines did in fact come from a third party (here in LA) so now I'm good. As with my previous Modern Motorsports order I'm very happy with quality. You just can't be in a rush to receive the parts. It took a total of 5weeks for me.

Anyone been successful in ordering in the past week? I got the calipers first since I thought they may be hard to come by locally, but can't get an order for the rear brake kit placed. The payment options are credit card, which I see elsewhere he doesn't actually take and Paypal (the pay later by check/money order doesn't show up). Unfortunately Paypal won't process any payments to Modern Motorsports, so the order form can't go any further. :disappoin

Since receiving the bag of hardware for the CV axle conversion kit, a month + ago I have not heard anything from Ross Corrigan, owner of Modern Motorsports LTD, I have called (604-224-2592) and send emails asking on the shipping status of the CV flange adapters. I paid for them with PayPall. At this point I will consider it a small miracle to hear anything positive. What a shame that this man would dive his business into the grpound. I am not aware of an other source. I am basically stuck because I sent him my stock flange adapters to be modified to the CV configuration and can not even resort back to the stock configuration. Where would I get an other set? Additionally I spent resources buying a nearly pristine set of 300zx axles and had them professionally rebuilt to their specs at a significant cost. Because of this company, my beautiful and very fast 72 240Z has become undriveable. Its become a hangar queen.

Email me at Jon M AT m2differentials.com. I may be able to help you out and get rid of my installed but never run 4 lug 36 spline stub axle and companion flange MM setup and sell you a shorter CV shaft for the driver's side.

More info on the shorter shaft here: http://forums.hybridz.org/index.php/topic/100094-cv-axle-discussion/

I finally received the billet 300ZX CV adapters from MM a few weeks ago. They are of excellent quality! I am not sorry now for the long wait, in the end what I received was what I needed. Fit and finish is first rate. I sent them off to Beta Motorsports who assembled the stub axle, bearings, CV conversion adapters, etc. in my rear strut assemblies and I am very happy with final result. At the end of the day, you get what you pay for. In this case not only money, but time too. Thanks to all who contributed to this thread, EdK:)

I managed contact with Ross after registering with MM's website and using the contact form there. An order was placed for the rear brake conversion July 31st and the parts arrived the first week of September, except for the brake pads. Ross e-mailed they were being sent direct from the manufacturer and would arrive separately. They arrived a week later.
