    • Dime Racing house of cards finally crumbles? Twin turbo Lamborghini Huracan horror story

      BoostAddict reported what was going on behind the scenes with Dime Racing. It seems people have not been paying attention or simply dismissed the reports. Remember when Dime Racing was taken to court by Weistec? BoostAddict posted the entire complaint with further details.


      The court case was not the only warning sign. Dime was caught on social media calling Weistec performance results their own. Furthermore, they used a Weistec dynograph on a Mercedes forum to promote their products.

      Those involved with Dime used to be involved with Weistec. This is exactly what was posted to inform people:

      1. Steve Atneyel is no longer with Weistec Engineering.
      2. Murad Shuqom/Rod Shegem is not involved with Weistec Engineering.
      3. Steve Atneyel is a convicted felon.
      4. The two individuals named above are involved with Dime Consulting.
      5. Dime Consulting has contacted various BenzBoost vendors and attempted to sell products (likely Weistec products) and get money through backchannels.
      6. Steve Atneyel and Murad Shuqom allegedly funneled large sums of money from Weistec.
      7. Parts were ordered outside the normal Weistec accounting channels.
      8. The full complaint against these individuals and Dime Consulting is outlined below.

      Why would you bring your car to a convicted felon in the first place? Why wouldn't you do a simple google search to see the evidence and allegations against Rod Shegem:
      https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/f...FRmMEJpdTM3ekk

      How about a quick search revealing http://rod-shegem.com ? Furthermore, BoostAddict can say that before all of this went south Rod made a request to scrub his name from this website. It was odd, but at the time there were no red flags so his name was edited out of early Weistec articles.

      Hey, BoostAddict reported what nobody else did and did its job. So what you see in the video below should not surprise you.

      Long story short, Dime Racing made promises to this Huracan owner they could not deliver. Originally, the owner wanted go with VF-Engineering and in hindsight he should have.

      Things started to unravel quickly:




      It's your classic delay strategy. Take the money stall, and hope someone else comes in with more money to keep funding operations. Feels like a Ponzi scheme, doesn't it?

      The problem is Dime has people on social media and on forums (a certain Mercedes forum is complicit in deleting complaints and having moderators help cover up issues which could have warned people) constantly pushing their products. Notice they stay away from this forum though? Maybe that's because I have met all of these people since before this all started and know what happened throughout the saga?

      This guy learned a lesson the hard way. It sucks. At least he owned up to it and posted his story. BoostAddict does not believe Dime Racing will be able to continue to fund operations for all that much longer if what we hear behind the scenes is true. Then again, Rod Shegem isn't in jail for all his money laundering so who knows if they will continue to weasel their way through keeping the lights on.

      BoostAddict.com in an odd way is thrilled its reporting is confirmed as 100% accurate. Some people in this industry still care about their credibility.

        Heard from someone this car literally just sat with its bumper off.

        Anyway, he's supercharged now by a reputable company and very happy. I'll post the new vid when he puts it up.

        I know of a Huracan with a TT kit done by Dime Racing. Took a few weeks and it seems to be running strong around 900hp.

        That doesn't absolve any of this.

        Listened to the whole video - he didn't say whether he got his money back?

        personally the dif between35 and 70 on a 1/4 mil isn't enough to not go UGR

        peace of mind not blowing up has a value

        Why $35 and $70k? UGR's stock ECU bolt-on kit is $50k, $60k if you want the race gas tune (which is BS)

        took delivery,drove it for an hour before motor took a dump,i dropped off a perfectly healthy car n got a "built motor" car that lasted one hour,also it drove like crap I couldn't get over 3k and kept dying when coming to a stop...
        they ignored my calls n text until I texted them that the motor sounds like it fell apart inside,they offered to send them the motor back to get it warrantied but after 9 months and they couldn't deliver I knew not to make the same mistake again.
        I still have the car sitting at a shop habent decided what to do with it.

        Have you taken any action to at least recover the money spent (presuming you're not giving them a second chance)?

        Unfortunate that enthusiasts are mislead and suffer on false promises and failure to deliver.

        That's big question mark and what I asked someone as well. Nobody seems to know.
