I would say that the majority of those mods were donated for advertising on the show. I can't believe Turner gave them a new $4000 LSD for the project. That's pretty impressive right there.

I also can't believe that they put 20" wheels on that thing. ...and it's supposed to be a track car?!?!?!

yeah, I noticed that they had to hack it all up to make it fit the guys car. It was pretty apparent that there was a ton of work needed to make it fit right. I thought to myself? That can't be an authentic kit... So, it wasn't from you guys after all? That's lame-o. But I guess you guys get free publicity out of it, right?

Y'know, if you wanted to, maybe you could sue them for saying it was an authentic flossman kit, when it clearly wasn't...

first of all to S4izzle. they never said it was an authentic flossman kit...they said it was a GTR kit from gofastparts.com or whatever. and to TColville...it wasn't an ACS wing it was the OEM Clubsport wing....and to BimGrowl...i thought the same thing...track car? with 20s? with a HUGE front braking bias? they hardly did anything...evosport just did all the engine work. and some janky bodyshop did all the bodywork while "jack mac" trimmed the body pieces himself after the wheels were installed. so halfassed.
