Holy crap, stay as far away from that place as possible. He absolutely does not know what he's doing despite the game that he talks. If you do a search about about Diamond Don and Don Walker, you'll see some of his greatest hits.

Seriously, I wouldn't trust him changing my oil. If you have your car there, stop what you're doing now and go retrieve it if you value it. The good folks at High altitude imports and CRN (Colorado Racing Network) will happily share their experiences. They're not pretty.

Im not sure why you have an issue with me, since AFAIK you have never been to my shop, ever met me in person, or know anything about me beyond what you have read on the internet, especially on a forum I cannot view what is being said or reply to what has been said. You might also consider your "source" since its pretty chickenshit honestly, to specifically speak out on a closed forum where you know the person you are talking about cannot defend themselves- really shows a lot of class and depth. If you ever want to really know what your talking about feel free to come down to the shop and have a look around.

To the OP- feel free to come by the shop and check us out, see who we are and what we do. I have nothing to hide and if you dont feel like working with us thats completely fine, no harm no foul. there are other competent people out there to do work on Evos, and I can recommend several.
I did indeed work for 3R, and am on good terms with Bob and company, despite local legend. I dont "talk a good game"- I have spent half my life at various race tracks across the country and the cars I have been involved with have done consistently well. I will admit to having made some staffing errors early on in my business, but that has been corrected. I have also dealt with customers whom I should not have, and that has been corrected as well.

I usually like to give anyone the benefit of the doubt......I just got this 03 Evo (BBY..looks cool) and have been wanting to do some upgrades. I just moved here from San Diego and live kind of near your shop, so I started to ask/look around for local car clubs, etc.

To be honest though sir, I just joined up on a colorado site called coloradoracing.net....

This link showed up specifically about you........and to be honest, I would feel very scared to give you any of MY money.

Board Message

Could you care to explain? This person said he paid you quite a chunk of change ($3300) over a year ago, and ANOTHER guy said you owe him money too!



I sure would feel ripped off if I gave you $3000 and didn't get anything!
I'm sure you probably could do good work, but wow....I couldn't believe what was written!

I have personal experience with Don and Chance, and I can say for a fact that they don't know shit about cars and they take no pride in their work. They always have a reason on why they didn't do anything "yet" to the car. It's almost impossible to get a hold of them when they have your car hostage at their place.

So I'm glad you did some research and stay far far far away from these lowlife!

That's because he used to work at Carz for a while, which caused them quite a few problems and work that Don couldn't deliver on that had to be corrected by someone else and numerous "lost" parts.

Glad to see that you went the route you did and found a reputable shop.
