Default Ray A Racing Turn-Around Time

I did a search on "Ray Racing" and came up with nothing and I don't want to bother him with an email that may take him away from doing his magic so...

How long have people typically waited for a sleeve to be resized and returned from Ray A Racing?

Thanks, that's good to hear. I shipped on Monday and delivery confirmation shows is was delivered on Friday so hopefully mine will show up soon. I know this is crunch time for end of season races so I imagine he is as busy as a tornado in a trailer park.

THAT is the link I remember reading not too long ago but my search didn't bring it up. I guess the search term "rayaracing" would have been more productive than what I used (ray racing).

After adding that and Mark's (from Powerhouse Mods) testimonials, I figured he had his act together.

He's racing this weekend at one of the GLORCs races this weekend. I'm sure you will hear from him soon if someone sent him an email.

His service is awesome. Very helpful and great guy. He took the time to explain things to me. I handed it to him in person.

Do you send just the P/S or the whole engine and let him tear it down?

Ray is a great guy with outstanding work. His turn around time is usually less than a week and most of the time seems to be about 2 or 3 days. Send in just the piston and sleeve with rod attached, type of tightness preferred, engine type and return address. Select payment type whether it be paypal, cash or money order. Send payment and you are set to go. Hope this helps the cause!
