#1 I was left with a bunch of **** plies when my previous tuner and I decided it was best to part.
Sorry you feel that way about Junior, and your situation, but that had nothing to do with me.

Quote:
#2 I aimed you to thank you for doing a good job on my friends Cobalt you tuned VIA HP tuners, he was pleased.
No problem, glad he's happy

Quote:
#3 During our conversation I asked you IF you where happy @ your current place of employment, and that was it. You Told me Danny the boss and yourself are great friends and that you could never do that. I respect you very much for that.

#4 I never BEGGED you to work for me, or even TOLD anyone that Chris from XX tuning was joining forced. That my friend is a huge lie. I asked a mutual customer of our hows Chris as a tuner.
George, I never said that you begged me to work for you, you bugged me to work for you. Here is my EXACT statement:

Quote:
Not sure what pisses you off more, the fact that you offered me a job three months ago and I declined, or the fact that I wouldn't tune your car at either your shop or mine. You bragged to people that you were going to hire me, that I was going to be the new tuner at ICS! Wow, am I glad I am loyal to my customers and my shop because that would have been a bad decision on my part.
Quote:
#5 I even called your employer Dan and explained my situation to him afterwards about a few flower pots that where left here for me to finish up, and if he had time to look @ them. He said he was booked 1 month in advanced. I then asked him with all do respect, if it was possible to have you come down on your own time or company time and help me get these car straighted up and I would gladly pay him up front for travel time and your services.
First of all, you didn't call my employer, you called me, then I told you that you need to talk Dan about me doing work for you so I forwarded the call because I didn't want to be put in the middle anymore.

Quote:
#6 He said that it would be a conflict on interest and that he would not want to make my shop look good. He also brought up the fact of our previous conversation where I asked you if you were happy @ XX tuning. I did not deny our conversation.
Yes he did, I was right there when he did. I am completely open and honest with my boss, I tell him everything... Maybe it's why we are so good at what we do.

Quote:
#7 I did not maniplulate the dyno, thats not my style, besides it cannot be done, that is one a handful that cannot manipulate the dyno.
That is for you to know and for everybody else to make assumptions.

Quote:
#8 I did not try to steal any buisness from you and your company. If a customer of yours or The Shops land on my door for advice or a re-tune.. you bet im going to help him, im not going to say (Hey you know I dont want your buisness im not here to survive) please go back the Chris @ XX or The Shop. Buisness is Buisness @ the end of the day if the customer is satisfied it pleases me.
I respect that. Not sure what you are getting at here?

Quote:
#9 Im am extreemly happy with Big Al (Dyno Flash) he is a stand up guy and does a job tuning. Its a passion for him its not about the $$$. Yes we all need to eat but at the end of the day if he spends more time perfecting a tune and dosent look to be compensated for the extra time.
Ok, here are some instant message logs from conversations you had with me:

[15:06] George - ICS: How do you get along with Jr and Al
[15:06] Chris: It get's crazy man
[15:06] George - ICS: yup
[15:06] Chris: I have never met Jr
[15:06] Chris: Only online
[15:06] Chris: Seems like a stand up guy
[15:06] George - ICS: cool
[15:06] George - ICS: Al
[15:07] Chris: I have no problems with any tuner trying to compete fairly in this business
[15:07] George - ICS: see where it puts me
[15:07] Chris: but f**cking with your dyno to make my tune look bad
[15:07] George - ICS: thats Al!
[15:07] Chris: I have never had any problems with any tuners in my life
[15:07] Chris: until Al came along
[15:08] George - ICS: yup The shop they manpulate the Dyno Dynamics constatly
[15:08] George - ICS: My Dick brother owns the shop
[15:08] Chris: Ahh
[15:08] George - ICS: yes
[15:08] Chris: sorry to hear you don't get along... And you guys own competeing shops...
[15:08] Chris: Wow
[15:08] Chris: That's crazy
[15:08] George - ICS: its him
[15:09] George - ICS: I get along with everyone
[15:09] Chris: I heard
[15:09] George - ICS: the worse part of it is my brother know everything that goes on in my place. B/C of a certain person
[15:09] Chris: I've heard good things about the owners of both ICS and the Shop..
[15:09] Chris: they are nice guys
[15:10] Chris: Honestly, I try to stay out of it, the more people we get along with, the smoother things ride
Quote:
#10 I want to thank you personally on line for sending the young man down with the E36 M3. I found and repaired the problem for him.
Your welcome.

Quote:
#11 I woiuld really appreciate it when BAFOON"S jump in to bash Al and make their little comments that you as a proffesional; would not participate in all of the drama, you are a tuner and should know better than that. As far as stating I like DRAMA your so wrong Chris. I am self made and have an incredible buisness. This Tuning thing to me is a passion and does not by any means pays my bills. Its very convenient to have BIG Al their as a tunes to accomidate the growth of the performance side of my buisness. The Staff Al and Brian and myself will be greatly stepping things up on the performance side of things, since I do have a proffesional tuner in house that I can rely on. The sky is the limit from here on.

#12 This post is to let the NASIOC members know my end of the story and how I feel about things and plan I continue to help and support my customers here on Nasioc

The bottom line is that you did want to hire me, you drove me nuts... But you did what you had to do. I have nothing against you personally, but maybe it's somebody else that is causing all the problems down there in your area... Seems that everybody got along just fine until this person got involved.

I am done with this, I posted dyno sheets two weeks ago, and I told myself I wouldn't get dragged into the drama, but yet again, I was.... Oh well, back to what I should be doing.

Take care,

Chris
