Nemo Foss, Rage Technologies Inc.

I dropped off my silver 2004 Dodge Neon SRT-4 on 05/19/2008 at Rage Technologies Inc.. I have paid Nemo Foss $20,875.62 for parts and labor, plus $3000.00 cash loan on 9/11/2008. I gave him a Haltech ems E8 that cost me $2,000.00 , radio, speakers, wheels, tires, turbos, wastegate, intercooler, injectors, fuel pump, and intake. I have spent over $100,000.00 on the car and I need the car and money back. Nemo told me that he should have my car ready and shipped to my house by 3/15/2017. Thank you for your help.

What? This doesn't make a lot of sense. Are you saying someone has had your car for 8 years?

When was the expected return?

What has been going on in the meantime?

Why did you give someone a cash loan that (as you are saying) has nothing to do with the car?

How the hell did you spend 100k on an SRT-4?

Are you asking for your car and money back now? Or are you waiting till March?

What is the point of this post? There are far too many unanswered questions here?

post sounds kind of fake...

Rage isn't even in business anymore and hasn't been for quite some time. Nemo left to go work for Porsche

Yes, Nemo has had my car for over 8 1/2 years.
He told me the car would be ready in 3 months.
Every time I call he tells me the car will be ready in a couple of months.
I lent him $3000.00 to order a batch of 5th gears, which didn't get made and he told me that he would pay me back in 3 months.
I bought the car in Sep. 2003 for $33,000.00 because I was $10,000.00 upside down on my Honda Accord Lease. $9,000.00 at Seņor Stereo, $17,000.00 at Lujan Motorsports, $23,875.62 at Rage Technologies Inc., $7,000.00 at the Dealer for repairs, maintenance, and adding parts, $5,000.00 for online parts, $7,000.00 for Insurance and gas.
The sooner I get my car back the better, but I will wait until March.
The point of this post is my review of a tuner shop, to make people aware of the problem and hopefully speed up the process of getting my car back.
I answered all of your questions.

This is real.
According to sunbiz.org Rage is still active with a new address.
Havi took over the shop and agreed to install all the parts at no charge and was waiting for Nemo to build the engine. Havi still has the same phone # that Rage had.

First question we ALL have is why would you leave the car there for so long?

Also, the following may or may not be relevant to your review but they're questions the readers are all going to have:

$20,875.62 for parts and labor - What work is/was being done?

$17,000.00 at Lujan Motorsports - What did you have done here?

$7,000.00 at the Dealer for repairs, maintenance, and adding parts- See my previous 2 questions. Also, why would you pay for repairs on a warrantied car?

$5,000.00 for online parts - If you had paid for so many parts from other sources what did you buy online?

$7,000.00 for Insurance and gas. - no comment.

TBH....your story sounds outlandish. If you had 100K to drop on a Neon (tell someone and watch their face)....why didn't you ram a lawyer up their ass by now? A lawyer should be a drop in the bucket...I can comfortably afford a lawyer and I don't have 100K to drop on a Neon.

He was the only shop I could find that would do all the upgrades. When I saw it was taking longer so I asked for a refund and he told me he didn't have any money and couldn't refund me so I waited.

Some of the parts and work that was paid for at Rage are sequential direct injection, Tial waste gate, fuel system, 1000cc injectors, new turbo, 3.5" side exhaust, rear control lower arms and bushings, bolt strap kit, cnc head, cnc intake manifold, camshaft, rods, pistons, cam gears, oil pump, crankshaft, belt, bearing, ati balancer, water pump, gaskets, r and r motor, rewire ac, 4" ram intake, 3/4 shift fork, scatter shield, agp billet shift selector, accelerator input shaft, clutch pedal pivot, syncros, 1st gear, shifter bushing and mount kit, coilovers, tube insulator, accell transmission, act clutch, transmission mount, aem water/meth kit, brake rotors, brake lines, vehicle dynamic processor pioneer, input shaft and 8 gears, remove tec3r and install new ems, dyno tune.

Some at Lujan was gt40 turbo, haltech e8 ems, msd dis 2, brake pads and resurface rotors, remove shaft, traction bars, bushing kit, camshaft, shortshifter, dyno tune, clutch, agp intake, 180 degree thermostate, spark plugs, hks blow off valve, agp hard pipe, msd wires, agp motor mounts, greddy oil catch can, agp actuator, greddy profec B, super afc, tach driver, hp racing exhaust, fuel system, injectors, pump, rail.

Some at Dadeland Dodge dealer charged me $1000.00 for a clutch plus synthetic oil is not covered in the warranty, short shifter, tires.

Some online stuff are transmission mounts, aem water/meth kit, brake rotors, pads, lines, eyelids, fog lights, injectors, fuel rail, pump, wheels and tires, traction bars, bushing kit, camshaft, shortshifter, pioneer vehicle dynamic processor, solar panel.

I went to a lawyer and he wanted $1,000.00 upfront. I don't have any money now.

I would like to sell the car for $10,000.00 and I will eliminate Nemo's debt. I live in Homestead, FL and have the title and receipts to the car, Nemo's # is 954-274-4175 or rageparts@aol.com, Havi's # is 954-915-0016 if the car is still in the shop. Let them know you would like to see it, send some pictures, and/or buy it.
I need your help. Thank you.

Save up and get a lawyer....don't know what anyone on this forum can do for your situation.

I find it odd though....drop 100k on a Neon but can't come up with a measly 1k for a lawyer.

So you don't know or haven't seen the car lately and you live in Homestead? I thought you were out of Florida.
After 8 years being pushed around a shop I doubt you will be able to get 10K for it, even with low mileage.
I wonder what type of condition it is in right now for curiosity sake.

Probably torn apart or in the same condition it was when it was dropped off. 8 years is 8 years too many to leave a car at a shop. Maybe the shop parted it out. Who knows at this point.
