No kidding..

I just don't respond to any.

Your right, I do however, miss your antics and say it like it is to people. Your advise was always sound good advise. None of that hokie pokie guessing crap.

Speaking of BS posts, that recent post from DR about 180K mileage on his car and still going strong BS. It was a blatant advertisement. SCcheesehead deleted my post. Because I pointed out the obvious and said what everybody was thinking. The balls of him even logging in, let alone posting something.

Did I read and interpret that he has 4.10 gears and no tune???

Regardless.

That thread has to be a hoax.

Funny stuff.

No, I deleted it because it was bullshit pot-stirring.

BTW, all of 4 replies to his thread, so I'd say nobody really gives a shit about the thread to begin with...

That place needs pot stirring. FULL of political correctness. I said it, and everyone was thinking it, but don't have the balls to say it. Too afraid to call a duck a duck.

The admins ought to do the right thing and ban his ass. Too many people have been thrown to the curb because of that asshat. Zack and Travis just to name a few. Not to mention, all the people he screwed over, for the mighty dollar. He could be in a better business situation with more customers if he wasn't an idiot. I guess his wife and Mary got a cozy thing going so he doesn't get the ultimate boot. (rant off)

Your right tho, NOBODY gives a SHIT about that dirt bag.

I like how someone said " I thought your car was S/C Dennis"

Hence why I said in my post that was deleted " Nice advertisement and promotion"

Had my first and last conversation with him yesterday...what an arrogant ass! I have a car in my shop that I don't know who built, it blew a blower belt and in doing so it tore up a couple of wiring harnesses. I had heard through the grapevine that he "may" have worked on it...so I called to ask if he had. Once I asked him he said no but that he knows more about the Mercury Marauder then anyone I'll ever meet...really? So Steve Babcock would not know more huh? Weird...he then went on to tell me how he could diagnose what is wrong with the car at my shop but I'd have to pay him to "help" me...I would understand this if I was working on a stock issue...I was trying to figure out where a wire went that was added by the original builder. He would not let me explain this he just kept insisting on me following his lead carefully cause he knows all...hmm, maybe not...he kept telling me that the wire that was added to the car I am working on does not need to be there just tape it off....how the fuck do you know? You don't know anymore than I do what it is for...then goes on to say that he has 4 Marauders at his shop right now and blah blah blah....so I enlightened him to the fact that there are 3 of them here now and 2 more coming soon...to which he replied that I need to be selling his supercharger kit....complete and total ass, in his own little world, never even heard a word of me trying to get off of the phone with him. I finally said "Thank you for your time Mr. R I have to be going now" and hung up...DOUCHE BAG...For the record I agree he should be banned...and I was not even around to see all of the shit he has pulled over the years...

Interesting story...and I'm not even a little bit surprised. I know you have been around for awhile on MM.net. But in the world of DR, everything is his way and arrogance is an understatement. I'm glad you got a chance to witness the assery first hand. I don't mean that in a serious way, just that, a lot of DR bullshit happened before you came on the MM scene.

Your a smart guy and you have done a bunch for the community with the pedal repair etc. It's guys like you that are good for the community, guys like him just fade away. I can't believe there are still idiots out there that still worship the ground he stands on and spend money with him.

Maybe you will get to see his gay little dog that he lets run rampant at Marauder meets.

That's funny but not funny that you finally get to know first hand now what a D-bag DR is.

Loved Paul Harvey! Thanks for the compliments, just another car enthusiast doing his part. 5 minutes of his blabbering mouth and I wanted to reach through the phone and strangle him!

I got a little story about DR and because of it I have saved alot of money over the years. Registered for his' dyno tuning at MV II in Indy. He indicated that I was number 4 on the list for that day and he could only do two pulls because of all the people that had signed up. No problem I just wanted to see where I was at NA.

Go to the strip in Indy and Dennis was set up and he had a couple of tables their where he was selling MM upgraded parts. So he is working on dynotuning customer number 3's car and he did like 5 pulls for this guy. The next thing I know he is there telling the guy he needs this and that, etc. He has about 20 people their just hanging on every word he spoke and then when he said something improved performance they would just run right over to his' table and buy or order parts.

So I was standing there and I tell him I am car #4 and I am ready to do my dyno pulls. He looks at me and says did you happen to check out my parts table over their and what do you think I will be ordering today? I told him that I just brought the (I believe) $50 for the two dyno pulls and did not really intend to buy anything else today. He looked at me and then turned around and walked away! I stood their with my mouth open and then I thought screw this and went and tracked him down.

What the hell happened? I finally found him by the tables and he was telling this guy who had an armful of stuff to go get his' car as he was next. I said wait a minute it's my turn and he looked at me and said that he had to bump me because I was just a simple dyno pull (check a/f ratio) and he had to do extra things on these guys cars. He promised me he would get me in at the end.

Well needless to say I never got my dyno pull and it was the best $50 I never spent in my life! After that douchery, I learned real quick that he was only about the money and never spent another dime with that guy.

I got banned from CVN because of DR. I almost got banned from MM.net because of DR.
I remember emailing him a question regarding voltage regulator, he kept telling me I needed the wrong one. He kept saying I need the white V/R because that is the one that is not PCM controlled. I was trying to be nice and not tell him he was full of shit but then he started to get angry and be an asshole. He seemed like he was drinking because nothing he was saying was making any sense.
So I told him he was full of shit and went about my merry way.

He is a thief and a liar and just a complete waste of oxygen and just needs to go away and never come back.

I think my biggest laugh and realization came when he tried selling his "Oil Separator". Which was just an air compressor seperator that you could buy for a fraction of the price anywhere else.

Oh looky here! A pic of the joke!
