    The Black Friday 2020 Sale Is Here!!!

    Our Black Friday sale is here and it's running for a whole month! It is a little different this year. My hope is that this post will help everyone understand the discounts and pricing. For those that just want the bottom line:

    • 20% off of Borg Motorsports manufactured products
    • 30% off of Borg Motorsports merch
    • 10% off everything else we sell
    • Sale runs from Monday Nov. 23, 2020 until Sunday Dec. 20, 2020
    • No discount code is necessary, the site already reflects the sale price (normal pricing shown as "Compare to" in product description)

    Now for the reason it's a little different this year. Our prices have remained the same since opening in 2015. In that time, I have been able to find ways of keeping the costs consistent (more efficient machining programs, machine upgrades, bulk material discounts as sales have increased, etc.). Unfortunately, these options have been exhausted. Between the lack of cost control options, increased material costs, and increased shipping costs, our prices need to increase and they are increasing prior to the Black Friday sale. I know this sounds bad, but read on.

    To counteract the price increase and give everyone time to buy what they want at the old prices before they become permanent, the Black Friday discount in 2020 will be increased to offer better prices than we did in 2019. In 2019, we had a 12% discount. This year we are running 20% off on our products. Doing so means that the price you pay during the Black Friday sale is lower than what you would have paid last year, even at the higher MSRP. Hopefully this alleviates some of the pain of the price increase and gives everyone plenty of warning before the price increases are permanent. The new MSRP of each product is listed on the product description as the "compare to" price. On Dec. 21, 2020, the prices will change to these compare to prices permanently.

    As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out through the contact us form. Thanks for all of your support over the years. I am really looking forward to all the growth we have planned for 2021.

    C7 Bushing Kits Are Here!!!

    We've launched our bushing kits for the C7 Corvette, both in Standard Delrin and Premium Delrin AF100 Blend. They are in stock and ready to ship now.

    To celebrate, we are running a 7% off sale when you enter "C7DELRIN" at checkout. The discount applies to everything on the site, not just C7 kits. The sale runs through July 15th at 11:59 PM CT. Many of our non-C7 kits are also in stock and ready to ship thanks to a large production push at the end of the second quarter.

    There are no plans for an offset kit for the C7 however, the front upper control arm position is identical on the C5, C6, and C7 frames, both steel and aluminum, so if you really need the extra camber, you can purchase those from the Individual Bushings section of the website.

    Let us know if you have any questions. Thanks for the ongoing support!

    Product Discontinuation Annoucement - C6Z Offset

    Based on extremely low sales, I will be discontinuing the offset kit for aluminum frame C6's. This product will remain available on the site for the remainder of May. For anyone thinking about purchasing an offset kit for their C6 Z06 or ZR1, please do so by May 31, 2020. The Individual Bushing product for the offset Rear Upper Control Arms for the C6Z will also be discontinued on the same schedule. This change does not affect the Standard or Premium kits.

    In the event you need more camber/caster on an aluminum-framed car after May, you can make your own partially offset kit in the Individual Bushings section of the site. Lower control arm bushings are the same for aluminum frame and steel framed cars (between the C5 and C6) and the offset bushing version of these positions will still be produced. This won't create as much of an increase in camber as the full offset kit, but this combination should provide more than enough to cover 99%+ of your alignment needs.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out. 

    COVID-19 Status

    Since I have been getting a significant number of questions on this, I want to make sure everyone is up to date on our business status. Borg Motorsports is open, manufacturing, and shipping orders with the standard 2-week maximum lead time on backordered items.

    It seems like most of my customers don't know the full story of the company, so for those of you unaware, Borg Motorsports is a very small company. I am not only the owner, but I'm the sole, full-time employee of Borg Motorsports. I have hired contractors in the past, but it has been over a year since I had any on-site. In addition to that, the shop is on property that I personally own and that is not shared with others. This gives me the ability to continue operations, even under a quarantine situation, without putting anyone at risk of spreading the coronavirus. 

    Supply chains are still intact, shipment providers are still operational, and none of the materials used for bushings or other products are currently being triaged for medical use. Obviously, these are things that can change quickly, but at this time I can still operate Borg Motorsports normally, with plenty of material and supplies on hand to fulfill orders. While I have been unsuccessful thus far, if I am able to find a way to use my available manufacturing capacity to help fight the coronavirus, I will be temporarily holding orders to help. If any of my readers know of someone looking for manufacturing capacity to help supply the medical community, please reach out to me at lane@borgmotorsports.com. Until then, I will continue to provide the best suspension products I can.

    For those individuals that have placed orders in the last month, thank you. Sales have understandably slowed significantly and individual sales during this time mean a significant amount to the health and longevity of the business. Thank you again for your support.

    Changes to the Site

    I'm making a couple of changes to the site that might affect some people so I wanted to announce them before they are implemented.

    Specifically, no one has used the Affirm payment option, so that will be removed at the end of the year.

    Second, the number of people using Amazon Payments is low enough that Borg Motorsports doesn't qualify for Amazon's preferred status. This means payments are tied up for at least a week, but often closer to two. I know two weeks doesn't sound like much, but when Shopify and PayPal have money in the bank in a couple of days, that delay has a measurable effect on cashflow management. It's also just an additional system that needs to be monitored and maintained for little to no added value. Because of that, I will also be taking down Amazon Payments at the end of 2019. 

    If you plan on using either of these payment methods, please either make your order before the end of the year or contact me to discuss options. Thanks everyone.
