Yeesh.  That poor guy Whalleyboy is being led up and down the garden path by every douchebag and his brother.  I feel really bad for him.

Looks like the end of Jack Metcalf?  And good riddance.
The funny thing is this...he may truly beleive what he is saying, that he found the source of Velocity's motors...but there are twenty different motor factories and trading agents that could send you the same photos and swear up and down they are the original manufacturer...does not mean it's TRUE!

Exactly.  He may have found the same factory, but the factory will say, "Okay Mr. Metcalf you want motors for less than we sell them to others, who pay us more and have spent considerable money in promoting the brand?  Sure, we'll sell you them, but we won't produce them the same way".  For example, they have two guys winding motors: One's better than the other.  The better guy winds the motors for the preferred distributor.  etc...etc...
As usual, the communication skills were horrible here also.  He made himself look terrible when making his weak case at rcg.
