Now Stoptech is a HUGE company, AND they are located in the same state as me, yet they still managed to take 5 weeks with NO communication.

Did i freak out? no.
Did i trust the company to deliver? yes.
Did they deliver? yes.

i understand there is some anxiety associated with a foreign seller who is taking longer than anticipated with no good communication, but damn. If i was Slonik, i mite think twice before offering any new products to this community, which would be a shame since as stated before his products are top notch and innovative.

As i stated in another thread, i have ordered the previous 3 products he has offered, all of which took a long time to receive, but they arrived eventually and i wasn't mad. I was still happy that somebody even bothered to offer these parts to us way over here. But oh well, keep making more threads about how you waiting too long for something that was offered AT A DISCOUNT... there is an old saying, you get what you pay for. Maybe if you had paid full price you would have received your parts earlier separate from the GroupBuy, i mean you wanted a discount, something has to give. In this case is was production time!
Yeah I see where you're coming from, but unfortunately when the supplier (slonik) had indicated 3-4 weeks then after 8 weeks no communication you can see why some guys were getting anxious

This wouldn't have escalated to where it is now if he'd had spent 5 mins to respond to his thread with an update.

Custom parts take time, and unfortunately things dont always go to plan.

Update: I have received pictures of my front brake kit. I also have tracking. Slonik says that my rear brake kit is going to ship later this week.

I too heard back from Slon last night (I think his name is actually Mikhail) -- in short, he started shipping group buy purchases one by one, starting Monday of this week. Unfortunately he cannot ship everything at once because he does not want to raise issues with customs, which is fair enough.

This is all good news. Has one verified tracking numbers. I can't get a reply out of him. What email address are you guys using? WhatsApp isn't working for me.

Hey here's some good news. I chatted with Slon. My kit ships tomorrow and a Blue one went out today. I hope to have the tracking number soon. I got a picture.



This is what I was hoping for; a positive resolution. Will report back if I hear more.

Great to hear and thanks for posting up the pics they look stunning (like everything slonik produces)

I ordered a blue one (with engraved red brembo font) hopefully that blue one was mine

Sucks about the delay, but I'm glad to hear that you guys are getting your parts! I have the Slon DCT pan and it is truly a very nice custom piece.

I purchased mine on 28th June after 3 weeks I'd asked for an update and he told me basically i'll email you once they're ready.

Id purchased a set off him in nov 2018 and it took 2-3 months back then also (he had issues with colour matching the F8X ///M blue back then) i was hoping he'd come through with the 3-4 week promise

Got a tracking number but too early to reflect delivery estimate. Hopefully this time next week I have brakes!

Please don't open another thread asking about where he is

Since his first group buy it's been the exact same thing. He doesn't have good communication, for whatever reason. If you don't like it then don't buy from him.


It's hard to believe mods have locked his thread... what a waste of everyone's time.

Nobody forced you to come in here and comment so don't blame us for wasting everyone's time. This thread was intended to get his attention and be a central place for those in the group buy to communicate and guess what... it worked. There have been numerous valuable updates posted for that group of people participating in the group buy and we have collectively received positive updates.

There's been no Slonik bashing in here, simply informative info for those that desire it. Not sure why you and some others (who don't have thousands of dollars outstanding for 3+ months by the way) feel the need to comment calling us babies for whining or time wasters. Literally the definition of trolling.
