Default Zzyzx no more?

Was doing a search online for Zzyzx stuff and stumbled across this thread over at EvoM:
http://forums.evolutionm.net/evo-tir...ned-zzyzx.html

Granted, it's a couple of months old now, but a couple of posts caught my attention. Don't want to start rumors or anything though, so maybe someone who has some first hand input can chime in.

I've been trying to get in touch with him via email off and on for a few months, and no luck. Hopefully my emails are just getting lost, and he's still around.

It's sad to see the small quality parts makers and vendors struggling and going under. I think 2009 may be even worse. I find the service from the smaller vendors that i've dealt with to be outstanding. I hope Zzyzx makes a comeback.

I talked to Steve at Nationals. He's still alive and well, but is dealing with some personal issues which are preventing him from spending any time on anything else. Hopefully when he gets those resolved, he'll be back.

Yea, they've been down since this past spring or summer. I've been researching coilovers over on EvoM for a few months now and read a bunch of threads on this.

I ended up deciding on Ohlins DFV Sportlines and am ordering them today. Hopefully ZZYZX comes back because everyone loved his work.

Zzyzx is/was a town named that way to be the last place listed in the phone book. Anyone remember zzyzx mtn bike forks 10-15 years ago. They were HUGE

I remember seeing them all the time in catalogs and stuff and thinking how amazingly awesome they must be.

Hey Guys,

First off, thanks for all the kind words.

I apologize to those up front that I have not returned phone and/or email inquiries.

Zzyzx Motorsports is still alive, but due to a variety of non-business related personal issues I haven't had the time to focus on delivering new product. What time I do have has gone into supporting current customers which is priority #1 right now for the business. And keep in mind, Zzyzx Motorsports doesn't resell any product, it's all manufactured in-house, almost entirely by my own two hands. This is part of the difficulty in delivering product, particularly when I'm strapped with a myriad of other
issues. I'm working to change this but again, time is short as is money.

To save money, I stopped my vendor accounts on the boards I had them on. This was a cost cutting measure only, nothing more.

Areg - Thanks for your persistence and I will call you this week.

TiC - I think I responded to your email(s), but I do have a spam filter that gets false positives and I have lost emails in the past. If there is something specific you want to discuss, please send PM me.

I'm hoping to get things to a point where I can definitively state when product will be available again, but there are just too many unknowns right now to commit to a schedule.

Again, thanks for all the support and I hope my situation settles down sooner rather than later so I can focus on the next run of coilovers.

Steve

I second Annie's comment! I haven't had time to do anything autocross related of late, but Steve's coilovers are first rate. Not only are they art, the support that comes with them is worth the coilover's weight in gold.
