Synaptic 3 Fixed all the stuff my previous shop did wrong. Good work costs a fair wage. Be an informed customer when you hire a shop. Ask for a rough estimate of time. Tell them if you have a budget. Ask to be contacted if they run into problems. Ahead of time, discuss your plans and ask advice.
S3 takes the install and function of parts and systems very seriously. They don't simply throw on whatever you bring them for cut rate labor.
Those of us who went to VIR with them had a great time, because our cars were all superbly prepped. Incredible, fade free brakes from 140+ off the back straight, lap after lap. Reliable speed. Safety. Neutral, predictable handling.
When you're four-wheel drifting your car through turns 1, 2 and 3 at VIR on R Comps as a novice racer, you don't think about whether you could have gotten your work done for a little less. You're just enjoying the confidence that a properly prepped dual purpose track/street car is giving you.
Dope, sorry your experience was more expensive than you planned.
