If you think this forum purposely perpetuates any viewpoint above another, you've missed the point entirely. What's coming out in this thread is 500 posts of people in the hotrodding community making their points about a product. Nobody in this thread has been censored. No viewpoint has been disallowed.
This didn't start at hotrodders.com. Jon posted quotes from ALL OVER THE INTERNET complaining about streetbeast quality. So whatever "resolution" was made after CMC closed, quality issues were not resolved when streetbeasts started selling their product.
A kit car is an expensive item. The people who buy them are well within their rights to ask about others' experiences with them. And if there's a consistent quality problem with one kit over another, they're also well within their rights to say "well what's the deal with that, or where does that come from?" To be frank, if you'd solved the quality issues when the streetbeasts name was formed, you wouldn't have all the questions and probing about history that's clearly so unpleasant.
The attitude I'm getting from the above posts is that "hey we paid our debts to society and formed a new company, you guys just can't let the past go!" How can you say that, though, when the same quality complaints followed you into the new company? That's like getting stopped for speeding and doing a burnout in front of the cop as drive off, then crying when he pulls you over again.
