    Default Zok Race Carbs Testimonial

    I would like to take this opportunity to providesome feedback on my recent experience as a customer of 'Zok Race Carbs' inBrisbane QLD:

    To cut a long story short, my past experiences until now have not been a greatsuccess. I continually found myself being taken for a ride by dishonestmechanics who where only interested in the payment of the bill rather than thequality of the product in question. I'm sure this isn't a new problem to thecar scene, and im also sure my naivety and ignorance has contributed to myexperiences which have all been mistakes I have learnt from.

    Stories aside, I am happy to report that Zoran from Zok Race Carbs has providedone of the most honest and accommodating services to date. Aside from thereputation as the "Carby King" which seems to be growing on the forumalready. I had Zoran build a 308 from the ground up for my WB Holden Ute. It'snot destined to be a record breaker or set the best time down the 1/4 mile, butto be a very appropriate combination for the street that still stands the hairsup on end when the loud pedal is squeezed.

    Throughout the entire build, the continual support and advice Zoran providedwas fantastic. Taking the time to clearly explain each step of the process andthe options I had on what direction this build could take dependant on theoverall goal, what I was looking for and most importantly the Budget. There wasnever a time where I was unsure of the process or left out of the loop as thebuild took place, ensuring that the work that was undertaken had the customer’sapproval first. Something which I found very comforting compared to the 'pastexperiences'.

    There were always photos of the build along the way and phone calls withupdates of progress etc, since completion the car has been a pleasure thedrive. It's travelled approx 500km since the keys were handed over, and I'mthoroughly looking forward to heading back down to Brisbane for the 1000kmcheck-up, which will also give me the opportunity to get the old girl on thenew Dyno Zoran is setting up, which should see the engine through its finaltuning and some power runs.

    Overall following my experience, I would happily recommend anyone to Zok raceCarbs for any services they might require, from a simple tune-up to full enginebuilds. The emphasis on customer service and honesty Zoran applies to hisbusiness are attributes you don't see very often anymore and I am very glad it wasZok Race Carbs I chose for my recent work.

    Listed below for those interested is a Build Sheet of the 308, So it should beinteresting to see how it goes on the Dyno in the coming weeks:

    Glad to hear your happy with the product and hats off to Zok, it's great to see real customer service rather than the lip service we seem to have become accustomed too.

    Yeah Zoran is a great bloke with awesome attention to detail and product support.. I have sent several carbs/dizzys to him from W,A for various mild budget builds and had nothing but success and great support inbetween, would not hesitate to use again..

    another happy customer here have had a couple of carbys done what can I say " they just work like they should" and in some cases better than they should :-)

    I saw a fella with a bumper sticker saying:
    "I am a vet, therefore I drive like an animal."

    Suddenly I realised how many gynecologists

    Where in Brisbane is he based. I need my car tuned and I don't want to get just anyone with a dyno to do it. I want someone who knows Holden v8s.

    I think its more an optical ilusion the shiny bits are from the car being driven onto the trailer so its been polished from rubbing against each other
