If that is true, and we all know its not, then why have you posted 36 times in this thread and only once in the thread the young man started about his build??

This statement is an out and out lie.

Not true. We will call out any company that makes a bad product or fails to deliver on what has been promised. Especially those who attempt stealth marketing here.

Actually having the aftermarket be so diverse is a VERY GOOD THING. It means that anyone building a car had hundreds of choices when it comes to what goes into his build. He can choose what manufacturers frame, body, fenders, grill, suspension, interior and every other component rather than be backed into a corner and have few choices at all. THAT IS A GOOD THING.

Once again you miss the mark entirely. Its not that there are other trash bodies being manufactured its the fact that people have the choice which body to buy. Its up to the consumer to decide what he wants and Streetbeast effectively takes all those choices away and with their design forces the builder to return only to them for replacement parts.

Thank you. One of the design faults on a Streetbeast is the grill and it definitely needs a new one. With the crappy one they have now you can tell a Streetbeast a mile away and it is one of the many flaws in the overall design that make the car look like crap.

Oh, yea...... thanks for leaving.
