J-auto uprated pillowballs
« on: September 15, 2015, 04:15:03 AM »
I have this running on FDuk but details below

Update from J-auto we need 5 for a 10% discount but he has also reduced shipping
We would also need to add tax and postage within the UK (or collect from japshow) but I would do this once it's been shipped if everyone is ok with that?
I could really do with ordering these asap so please add names below if you want in, as normal PayPal with fees covered please (will PM details if we get 5)

Hi Mark,

Thank you for your e-mail. These pillow balls were just redesigned: each pillow ball body is now made out of hard anodized 6061 aluminum and the bushing spacers are now 17-4 stainless steel. This shaves almost one US pound of weight per pillow ball kit and the hard anodized body and stainless spacers will not corrode/rust.

I can give you a guys a 10% discount on the pillow balls for 5 orders. I can't offer a discount on the pillow ball rubber seals because I sell them very close to my cost. Shipping to the UK is $64 (£41.49) via USPS priority which takes 6-10 business days for delivery.

You're looking at $297 (£192.58) for each set of six pillow balls after 10% discount and $81 (£52,52) for twelve pillow ball dust seals (no discount on these). Shipping for each person in the group buy comes out to $12.80 (£8.29) which is a significant discount from the $64 each person would normally pay if purchased individually.

WITH dust seals: $390.80 (£253.40) per person including shipping ($64 shipping charge divided by 5 people = $12.80).
WITHOUT dust seals: $309.80 (£200.88) per person including shipping ($64 shipping charge divided by 5 people = $12.80).

These are ready to ship and orders go out the same day or next business day from when the order is paid for. Let me know if you have any more questions and I'll be happy to help.

Thanks,
Juan

Update from Juan
Hi Mark,

Correct, these can be rebuilt whenever the spherical bearing wears out for roughly $100. I haven't had anyone wear these out yet so unfortunately, I don't have an answer as to how long these last compared to OEM since they're such a new product. Feedback has been very positive so far.

Customers running these pillow balls have FDs ranging from 100% street cars, full blown time attack machines, and everything in between including my dual purpose FD. I personally have many street and track miles on them without dust covers (to test longevity) in dry and rainy conditions.

Pictures of the updated pillow balls were just posted on Instagram. Look me up @j_auto or like me on Facebook at www.facebook.com/jauto

More FD products are coming shortly including spherical bearing replacements for all bushings.

Thanks,
Juan
