Sounds like all of you guys that he ripped off need to fly to his town and get your engines then beat the travel expenses, and your angst out of him

I HATE thieves and swindlers. It should be teh law that the person they screwed can legally beat the ever loving hell out of them for their losses

Thats why I dropped him as one of my sponsors. Whenever I talked to him, he was cocky and talked like he had more money than Donald Trump. He also acted like he was the only one in the world that knew how to correctly mod a nitro motor. I'm not that desperate, as to need a sponsor like that. He did a decent job modding motors, but not any better than other modded motors that I've used.

So is it possible that you have another way to get in touch with him by chance? (a cell or home number maybe...)
I plan to send another certified letter to him this week. I don't really know what else I can do.

trust me , there are only so many things you can do to this design of an engine and see a noticeable increase in power . the trick is to create a stupid fast engine with a useable powerband and great fuel efficiency

That's been well over a year ago and I got a new cell 6 months ago. I didn't bother adding his number in my new one.
Everyone that's been ripped off by O'Donnell should go here to file a complaint. http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx
Maybe it'll help....maybe it won't. Wish I could help you get your stuff back. If you know where he lives, go wait outside his house and when you see him, introduce him to your little friend.......not that little friend....your other little friend.

You could blame Hessman for getting all of us started with him. I was lucky I was able to get every thing back, but I never used him again. In the beginning he wasn't bad to deal with but when the phone calls stopped being returned, that was it I stopped. That was a little bust on Hessman he's still a good guy. I guess I was lucky, sorry for your bad luck gregg. I have heard some really bad thing about him this last year.

Gregg, you could try sending a pm to Travis Dupree on the Trinity site he was the last guy I knew that had a good relationship with Chris? For what it's worth.

Thanks Tim, I actually already did that. He no longer deals with CEO either. More of the same story....
Sure wish I knew of all this earlier....
In the meantime, I sent him another certified letter yesterday. I really don't understand how anyone can operate this way.
