The brand whore bolt-on wonder boys can hate all they want, but I've seen the pics some of them are posting of their "OG" flares..... I'm at a loss for words at the laziness of the bodywork on some of those installs. Those gaps! If you're going to parade your original parts around and hate on every knock-off part you see, do us all a favour and install them properly so they at least look good and you don't embrace yourself.

Call me old-school but, a car that's built with taste, time in a garage, scared up hands, and lessons learned, regardless of brands used is head-over-heals more respectable than a car that's just been bolted together with high-dollar parts.
100% agree its all about putting effort into the car and building it to the highest standard you can. I have seen some terrible installs of these flares hence why we came out with ours. You'll always get the wonder boys who will only put original parts on their cars, which is fair enough, but my thought is why pay more for a part you can get somewhere else half the price that does exactly the same job.

Its a shame forcewekz never got it right but you can always count on us to provide quality fitting products. The photos we use for advertisements (unless stated) are always from our demo cars or customers cars.

This guy is right. He is a vendor and a supporting member to the Nasioc community.

Yeah. The guy selling reps says that it doesn't matter if the part is genuine or not. All that matters is that it's your car and that you put 100% into it and it will be an awesome car. Who would have guessed that?

shouldn't you be posting on a vendor account?

this sounds a lot like a non-vendor attempting to advertise.

you couldn't even be bothered to support the community you're pimping your fake products to.

Selling it for half the price like that makes it better let's rip off **** that took loads of money in r&d. No **** you can sell it for less you don't have to recoup the r&d money u just sit and wait like a savage then steal it. Like paying 700 for a set of flares is so expensive to many broke fuks around if you can't afford **** I'm sorry stop moding your car. Youre ruining the community. Like I said before get your **** and gtfo.

You are the essence of everything negative in the car community. You think that if they can't afford a set of authentic flares that they shouldn't even do anything to there car? That has to be the most ignorant thing I have ever heard. You need a reality check son. Just because you can't get the biggest and best part doesn't mean you shouldn't work with what you got.

Anyone can afford any part they want the laziness people have and don't want to save up. **** I saved for 2 years to buy my wing could I have gotten a cheap knock off and not saved for so long yes but that's gay. People would rather spend less then save up for quality parts. But no you Gota try to get them scene points and that Internet fame. It's fake companies that are killing the real ones. No one wants to come out with parts just for someone to replicate it with in months of the putting it out it's disgusting and sad instead of being innovative and coming out with your own **** they would rather be a fukin leach and take it then replicate it

I also love that people still got force****s even when Krod was still making them all to save $50 god damn dollars. It made my day to find out they fit like ass hole. Saved $50 but wasted more to get them to fit. Carbon creation I remember you telling Matt "apron" that u made them cuz they are out of production. Yet you make voltex v wings and do luck trucks and thoes are still in production. And now u come out saying oh you do it cuz the lazy people who can't save up so u come out with cheaper alternatives aka reps. Pick a back story. It's easy to just rip off a companies that spend time/money in wind tunnels vs just making molds of others ****. So go make your own crap spend money in r&d then come back here and see if you can sell stuff for cheap.

Handbags at 10 paces chaps we have a live one here

I have developed loads of products in the past that have been ripped off, I have updated them and been ripped off again. Such is life my friend. If people want to pay more for a genuine product thats their choice but you cant hate on others wanting the same product for cheaper if they arent bothered about branding.

I dont know what IP is so cant comment. All im saying is we have all been there. I have developed products and had someone else come in and do a similar thing im not sure why you are all shocked that these have been copied

Look at the rocket bunny stuff, they develop good looking over fenders and now companies all over the world are doing the same design. End of the day its business, it doesnt have to be pretty it just has to work

Lol people are doing the rocket bunny style they are not strait making molds of the exact ****ing part they are making their own unique stuff not buying a set then making a strait copy so your argument is invalid.
