Thunder Hurricane taking FOREVER to arrive?

Hi all,

Just wondering, for those of you who ordered a Thunder Hurricane intake, how long did it take to arrive? I ordered mine on July 7th from Phat Performance Parts and it's still not here. They guys at Phat are cool but they say Thunder is notoriously slow. Great stuff but they move at a snails pace. He said it's why many dealers won't carry Thunders parts.

I ordered a Corbin seat and I'm way over a month on that one too.

So fellow Hurricane owners, what was your experience?

Thanks!

I read some similar experiences from that particular seller and I decided to avoid. Seems they have "selective inventory." I have no knowledge related to the intake but there is no excuse for the corbin seat taking that long.

I'll guess it is because the VTX is no longer made. So, they no longer have the adapter plate in the inventory. So they sit on the order in hopes that maybe another couple will come in for the VTX and they can make a run of 6 parts to have because that is cheaper than making 1.

Perhaps get a refund and order directly from Thunder, or call Thunder directly?

I love this. They don't carry Thunder parts either, but they "advertsie" themselvese as a dealer by "telling" you order Thunder parts from them.
