Just like with any other deals...ask for complete contract disclosures (I hope they do have those) and read ALL fine print. I do not know complete details of the site, but just be sure to be real thorough with your rights and how much control they are asking for over your ride if this is legit. I highly doubt you can load up on parts and just show up to 1 show that's conveniently near you.

Some of the things from my experience...Some sponsors dis-allow use of other products, shops or sources of getting parts, so you would not be able to use competitions' products or labor. They might ask for complete rights over where your car has to be present to show off those sponsorships...which means you need to be where thy tell you or you break contract and they take you to court and/or potentially take your car...etc etc etc

Pretty much the same lessons...there is no free lunch...or...if it's too good to be true, it probably is...Just read all the fine print.

okay...I just read all their privacy stuff of the site and I suggest you tread very carefully...

they contact you only "if we have sponsorship opportunities that you qualify for...we use an automated dialer to contact you and inform you of sponsorship opportunities and to ask you to secure them during the phone call"...and sound like if you cannot answer it because you are at work/school/etc you are ineligible.

So pretty much you pay them up-front in hopes of getting matched up to a sponsorship deals with no guarantees that you will ever even get one. You are paying for a service of POSSIBLY receiving one with additional implications if you do...

yea dude don't do it. My boy has an SRT-4 and they called him too because they wanted to sponser him. They wanted him to pass out flyers at car shows and stuff. But the thing is, the party they wanna sell to you aren't even worth it. My friend checked them out, and the parts they were selling for him were much cheaper on ebay. And nothing was really performance parts. Most of them were just like L.E.D. Lights and stuff. Plus at car shows, it costs you like $35 just to get in, then on top of that a $99 fee? It's bullsh*t. Trust me, don't do it.

dude its a scam. my old roomie looked into it. You are gonna pay $99 for a list of possible sponsors. all you are doing is paying opfr alist that you can look up on the internet.

and then YOU have to call all of these sponsors to see if they will give you free ****.

not to mentions they want you to go to all of these cars shows on your own dime and pass out their ****s. shirts and decals and what not. and then if the get x amount of calls back then they might give you a sticker. and then you have to do mor eandf more and more to get anything.

super scam dont do it.

they are not legit. i have a friend matt who put is 09 s2k cr on and they emailed him saying that its just a scam to most ppl to get them to buy ****ty parts a little over whole sale, but if you have a rare car you can go into a tear program where you can move up to parts like turbos and stuff but you have to put alot of stickers(give you hella whp!) on your car and go to stupid street glow shows and ****. its dumb my opinion do not do it.
