It appears that VT is on the way out. They were bought out back in april and split into two companies I guess. VT is no nothing more than a sales office with no shop. All work is outsourced and they are not paying for the work. Several completed motors are sitting at the builder awaiting payment from VT before getting shipped. VT collected the money for them months ago (in some cases as far back as january)...yet they have not paid their bills.

The above thread was started by a soldier that put his build on hold when he was sent to afghanistan...when he returned he had to cancel it due to financial issues, but can not get his parts that hadn't be touched due to the hold nor get a refund.
While, I agree the two salemen Jim and Scott are getting a lot of heat (Scott has since quit and it appears Jim is out soon)....this thread is a must read if you are looking for a VT motor. I'm glad I found it as VT was one of the two builders I was considering. I did not realize they no longer did their own work.
If you are looking to get a built motor, a great alternative is Boss330 Racing...run by Al Papitito (sp?). You can buy through them or check out Lethal Performance as they are an authorized vendor and will handle all of the leg work for you.
