Carlo Lopez CLR Motorsport

Has anyone else dealt with Carlo Lopez at CLR Motorsport in Miami FL lately?

I sent him a motor to rebuild in May 2017, along with $7000 pre payment. 2 years full of excuse and lies, and I still haven't received my motor back.
Now he just disappeared completely.

He seem to be well known in some circles way back, I was very surprised he turned out to be a complete fraud.

PM me if you are in the same situation.

sorry to hear that. this is the kind of crap that has destroyed our community for decades. i would try to get on facebook, find some local enthusiasts down in florida that are willing to help you out and contact the shop or even get your motor and money back..

Your first mistake was prepaying $7k. Your second mistake was letting this drag on for more than 2 months (let alone 2 years).

I know this man to be a stand up guy who has one hell of a resume (including the beloved 767 engines among other notable chassis).
I'd be really, really, surprised, if anything bad comes from this. I know he was doing the 767 #202 engine for the new owners recently.
