I've bought probably a dozen parts off Mike and never had any problems. He also offers advise any time its needed and always has times for DSMs at his house. Let's be serious now, everyone knows "Rizz".

Bought and sold, parked and stored, loaded and unloaded, all with a smile and gracious hospitality. And he pays his bills for what he orders, which is nice, says me.

I've bought a couple things from Mike and they were always as advertised and a good price.

He helped a friend of mine out who was in need of a radiatior at 10pm on a Sunday night. He helped pull the part and the cost was reasonable.

Plus I got to oogle the red 1g. Laughing

I wouldn't have been into DSM's without Mike and his family (I'll include Stu here). He helped me for no other reason than knowing that I couldn't do it without him. Frankly one of the reasons I often consider moving back to southern NH.

I blew the tranny in my 92 AWD up on my way to work one Saturday. A quick post to the list and the next day I was leaving Mike's garage with a nice low-mileage unit that lasted until I crashed the car. I bet that tranny is still floating around in the club somewhere actually. Oh yeah, and even though I was obviously in a pinch and needed something ASAP the price was still right. He could have violated me like a bad sleepover at Jim Read's place, but I got a good deal.

Gave me a fair price on a semi complete turbo throttle body, nice guy to deal with and very informative.

As Doug mentioned, Mike isn't just a great person to do transactions with, he is a great help.

He has given my brother and I trailer help and garage space more times than we can count. Thanks a ton Mike.

Mike is the Man. Helped me out a bunch of times. Always willing to help someone out of a jam. Awesome guy, I learn something everytime I talk to him!

Mike is a very helpful guy, he pulled me into the scene as a newbie 3 years ago and got me on a good "track".

Mike lets me come over his house and help install my FMIC with me. Plus when he gets tired of putting up with me and sends me home even though my car isn't finished, he lets me take the focus home... then again who didn't take the focus home at some point... ugh i need to take a shower.

I have to agree, Mike is great! Not only has Mike helped me with many of my crazy ideas he has give me a place to store my heaps for the past 3 years at no cost.... I owe Mike and his family big time, I am not really sure how I will ever repay Mike for all the work and time he has put into my cars.

I bought an HKS GCC from Mike. Excellent shape, good deal. He instructed me on how to use it with my VPC. He sent it out before he even got payment for it. I wouldn't hesitate to deal with Mike again.

Mike has come through more than once in letting me store and work on my car at his place when it breaks at the track. Always helpful, and always a gracious host. Can't thank him enough...

I have got a number of things off of Mike and all parts were exactly what he said they were. It is nice that he always opens his home up to anyone... who breaks at the track as well. Confused

Mike has done a lot to help me over these years. He has sold, bought, traded, and been the middle man on many parts transactions, and has gone out of his way to help out. Mike is one of the most valuable and honest members of this club. Like many others, I would not be into these cars if it wasn't for him.

Good Guy Vote!

Mike let me bring over my "project car" which we both agreed would be easy to fix. Well fast forward 11 months and it is still taking up his valuable garage space. To make matters worse Mike has now informed me that there was a "rental fee" on the garage space and not only does he now own the car, but I owe him like $37.50. Wink

Seriously if the home cooked meals at Rizzotti Racing were not so good, I would probably be driving the convertible by now. Smile

Oh and regardless of what he tells you, he is NOT a certified Snap-On representative just because he has a catalog.

I remember back in the day (03 shootout, i believe) Mike sold me a 4 bolt LSD for an awesome price. I think he kicked himself after letting it go for so cheap! From what I remember Mike is a great guy, although I recall after only a 5 minute conversation, I was talking with a New England accent! Very Happy

I can't even count how many times Mike has helped me out. For years he has treated me like family over at his place. Thanks Mike!

Mike went way out of his way this Saturday and plugged his laptop into my car to see what was up with my tps and checked my idle switch.
The TMO chip I have now does not work. He was nice enough to let me use his old TMO chip so I can race at the Nopi event. Thank You Mike!
Very Good Guy! Thumbs Up

Just bought a short block from Mike. I have dealt with him on several other occasions and have always had a good experience. This one was no different, everything went smoothly. Thanks Mike!

I sold Mike his AEM Ems last year and was very easy to deal with. Even has opened his garage up for me to snag some axles when I was in a jam at the track. Thanks Jay

Awesome guy! He got me a valve cover when I was desperate and has hooked me up with gaskets. I'll be back for more later.

I sold Mike a 1g ECU and drove it up to him. Not only did he have the cash ready for me when I got there but he payed for gas as well. Wouldn't hesitate to do business with him again.

(Sorry the ECU wasn't polished Razz ) Laughing

Comes through again. From the time I posted, to the time I had the part in my hand, was about 4 hours. Part was indeed "mint" like he said, but then again he is Rizzotti. Also shared some insight on a few questions I had, and had a fun all-around talk with him. Thanks Mike!

P.S. Not to mention he put the part in a bag for me when he saw I was driving my fathers truck, so I wouldn't get it dirty Laughing .
