I google search doesn't really reveal anything. Have you been looking for sponsor?

edit:
google does work. you had it spelled wrong!

It looks like if you are accepted you pay them $99 then they send you offers that may or may not even cover the full costs of the parts.

Not that I have heard of the company before but I would be wary of opporntunities that involve having to pay money for the chance to get free stuff. Not saying it is a scam, as there are several legit things were you pay money upfront and get more later but unless you were actually seaking out a sponsor, this does sound a little iffy.

they do sponsorships with certain companies, but all the cheap ones. Like Fujita air intake systems, kyowa rims, and etc.

It maybe legit, but someone has to give them a try. they have commercials on MTV all the time and it's been around for a couple of years. just do a bit more reasearch on google. im sure someone has tried them out and had something to say.

*edit* with a little research of my own, i came to find out that many people had bad reviews on them.

Some people have tried it and Overall, not worth it. It's about the application fee of $90 that you have to pay before "getting approved". if you're one of those few that gets "rejected" then you won't get a refund. if you do, then you'll get a list of "sponsors" for cheap quality parts to buy from (yes buy from) at twice the amount you would have spent on eBay. you can only get a refund if you haven't been approved yet within 30 days, or if you already have been.

To get a well-worth sponsorship from a real legit company, would be like going for an interview for a high-priority job, they don't just hand those out to anyone.

"You never get something for nothing" Mark that in your book and learn it. It will save you lots of money and time in your life. If you have to ask the question about something being a scam just go a head and walk away. No use even investigating. There is a 98% change that its not want it seems. This should be applied to all monetary situations by everyone.

this.

if the comapany is gonna be giving u parts, they wanna know whats in it for them. how are u gonna make them money? most want u to go to car shows and events and spread the word about their company, and show off the goods they can produce. ive stayed away from these "sponsorship" sites.
