Hello,

My name is Benny and I was exposed to this project few months ago.

Let's say that before this project I never knew nothing about electronics parts,I learn this project but in the bad way.

I ordered from "Electrical Design Concepts the" the full kit for 125$ + 10$ for the 0.4 board (price with out shipment).
first of all this kit is not include (they say it in the web site):
Ic4 - OLAD
DRV8825 - optional mounting point has been added for running stepper based idle motors (Eg https://www.pololu.com/product/2133)
Map sensor - MPX4250AP-ND

In first shipment I got the wrong items, in the second shipment i got missing parts.
The supplier offered to send the missing parts by USPS and I refuse to get it from USPS because I didn't want to wait another 2-3 weeks. I placed the order in 11th,March, if I was agree for his offer I need to wait for the rest of the parts until 5th may. so I refused and asked for my money back from Paypal, (This case is still running).

For make easier life for the forum users I shared a cart in Digi-key website.

Benefits:
- comes with Arduino Mega (on digi-key it cost 52$~, you can buy it on aliexpress up to 10$ http://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale?cat ... =mega+2560)

- comes with Hammand Manufacturing case (http://www.hammondmfg.com/1455.htm)
- comes with IC4 component for OLAD output
- comes with Map sensor
- work with responsible company
- cheaper (just for compare: if you will order the same parts From Digi-key instead "Electrical Design Concepts" it will cost you 52$)

Weaknesses
- You still need to buy speeduino board separately (dose not come in EDC the kit)
- You still need to buy DVR8825 separately (dose not come in EDC the kit) - optional


Just to make the math for you.
This all project can cost you 115$~ (without shipping costs) and it will include all the parts that you need.

- All the electronic components
- DVR8825
- Map sensor
- Case for the boards
- Arduino Mega

What you will need to do is:

1. You can order the Speeduino 0.4v board and the VR conditioner from me,
just hit me here, PM or email me to 9582510@gmail.com :D

2. Enter the cart that I did in Digi-key - http://www.digikey.com/short/3jrbvt
you can buy the Arduino mega in Aliexpress and it will cost you 40$ less.

3. If you have problem with getting the VR, you can order it from here. http://www.jbperf.com/dual_VR/v2_1.html#Buy

In worst case, Totally you will pay the same price but you will have more thing that not include in the kits. (Arduino mega, Map sensor,Case,DVR8825 for step motor and IC4 component for OLED output)

If there is a cheaper or cost-value way to make this project works, I will loved to here.

I hope that I helped you.

Benny

Gentlemen:

I just got out of the hospital yesterday and I'm trying to get all things in their proper order once again.

My son has been running the show and three orders got swapped around and sent to the wrong persons. He was trying to resolve but the emails back and forth got a little problematic for him, so we decided to stop all of the Speeduino sales at the end of the month. I agreed with him on this when I saw the contents of the emails and how things were addressed.

1) We had one email claiming not to have received their order when in fact they were delivered the day before.

2) We had received several email from this gentlemen where he demanded parts, which are clearly cited on the website as not included. He also filed a claim with Paypal, which we escalated and let Paypal determine the outcome and now he has no recourse but to follow Paypal's instructions which we know he can't.

3) We had other emails claiming a free parts kit which should be included with the VR conditioner board.

Other emails, problems and concerns had come to mind so we decided to stop the Speeduino sales until our board is fully tested. Our unit will be sold assembled, packaged and tested or in kit form.

Sorry it has to come to this but for now, at the end of the month Speeduino will be discontinued from our store.

Sorry to hear about this.
But when people start complaining about things , because they lack information or missread/missunderstand.
Then it´s no bueno.

I´m not taking side , just sayin.
This is a low cost , lot´s of work , evolving opensource project
which lack some in the wiki section , but were gettin there , right?
Diy isn´t for everyone that´s for sure.
You have to know so much about a lot of things.
But if you are new to engines , soldering and engine management
then you are in for a step learningcurve. :D
On the other hand this site holds some realy cleaver guys.(girls?)
So all you have to do is ask.
(I´m not one of them.......by the way :D )

@ Juan.
Welcome back i wish you a speedy recovery. (SPEEDY , get it :mrgreen: )

(Yeah i know there are some cogs missing in my gearbox.)

Is your cog missing a tooth? How many? Before or after top-dead-center?

First of all I want to wish you good health,

Secondly,

Where you see that that the damage??
If it was damaged why I asked from you son to provide me the missing parts? I just ask him o be responsible for the mistake that he did in second time!!!
So in the 3rd shipment I asked for express shipment because I did not want to wait another 2-3 weeks.
I also provide him picture of missing parts on board and list of missing parts.

But he didn't want to give a good service and be responsible for this case.

I don't know what he told you, but I payed more 25$ for the VR. (On second shipment)

I can provide PayPal payment if you want.


Please make a real house check before Embarrass me in public.

Wishing you good health.

Yes we have a single account but we both speak for the same cause. I understand we had a mix up in shipping, some people did not get the kit they ordered and we are taking care of that. Some others received part of a kit including parts they did not pay for, but yet they go unmentioned.

I can post emails and other stuff showing our point, also reflect to my website where all information is there before you even buy the units. But it has gotten to the point where, our help and generosity up to a point, is being used against us by people that think they deserve more.

So since we have no problems with our other 72 products we sell, our metal cutting section is on track so we want to just keep selling our stuff as it is for now.

You don't need our help to embarrass you in public, you do that very well on your own. The second shipment you paid for the VR parts kit which is not included and we sent you an assembled unit. You then threaten us twice with getting your money back from paypal and keeping the merchandise, so we let you place the claim with paypal and we escalated it further.

I can prove alot and we have emails to back up our saying, but my son refused to work with you after your insults and referred you to one of our technical specialists, which you insulted as well. So considering all of that, we refused to pay $85.00 for federal express shipment to you for just a couple of resistors, a capacitor and a diode.

I am done with this topic, your parts have been packed and ready to ship for over a week. If you had allowed us to ship them to you, instead of invoking Paypal, you would have them by now. You asked us to honor the Paypal compromise and we did. We will return your money if you follow the Paypal's compromise as you requested.

Otherwise let us know when you want us to ship your parts.

Please provide the email that I told you or you understand that the board had been damage.

Do not put me in situation that people think that I'm not telling the truth.


I don't have any complane about your products,
All components are in good quality (orderd in mouser).

I just want to let people know the service that that I got from your son.

And most important thing to make this project cheaper.

What is the point of order from you parts that not assembled in 125$ that you can get them in more then half price in same quality?

You can tell me that people paying for service and someone that you can talk with if you have a problem,
But in your case it's not right. Actually your son was responsible for that while you was in hospital.

I want to think that you would handle this case better and your son is not a good example for your company service.

In this kind of project people work together and helping each other.

People here are writing in here on there free time and helping people to make this project better and cheaper. As I did.
