Moving my shop from CA to Austin

Hey guys,

I'm in the process of moving my shop from Riverside CA to Austin TX. I offer everything from parts sales, installs to full builds. looking forward to growing in Austin. .



I have in house Dynapack Dyno and authorized AEM, Apexi, Haltech, Link, UpRev, ECUTEK & Nistune service facility. I'm also a distributor for most brands available such as OSGiken, Tomei, HKS, Jim Wolf Technology, Radium, Injector Dynamics, and many more to list. I should be fully operational in April of this year (2019) already brought my first load of equipment and parts. once I'm all settled in I'll have a grand opening BBQ

thank you!

You're going to love being in TX over CA! Hopefully I can visit your new shop when I visit family over that direction once you're set up!

The drift scene is big in San Antonio. Austin is more fanboy and rich kids. I'm slowly building my car and doing all the fabrication work due to the outrageous prices. There is an old sage here though. The Z Clinic all ways comes through. I hope u find your space.

Word. You know it's out of control when $500k is the low-end for purchasing a decent house


Doing business here is also much more expensive, as I'm sure you're aware of lol

I honestly have no idea why anyone into automotive stuff would ever want to live in California. It blows my mind that the car scene out there is still as good as it is and that a mass exodus hasn't occurred yet.

OP, best of luck in Austin and welcome to the real America.

I'm so happy for you brother! Make sure to let me know when that Grand Opening is and ill talk to the wife so we can go show our support and help out. That'll give us a chance to go and look at where we will move to when the time comes soon if not sooner. Ready to leave California now.

Advertising wise, I'm thinking the same approach i had here in California. Let the cars I build do the talking for me. I'll be going out to meets and things of that sort initially, but once the shop gets busy and ball gets rolling i'll spend most of my time advertising at competitions or track events. I'm 100% flexible on it since I'll have to adapt to the market really but the focus is the same building reliable fast cars.

DUDE that is litterally what I tell everyone who moves out of the state, this state is so fucking broken. I've questioned if my vote even matters anymore with all these tards in office voted in by all the other tards.

Sounds good! Best way to reach me right now due to the move is email ([email protected]) once the construction is 100% done at the shop I’ll have an actual phone to contact.
