yea i think it's 80 or something i don't remember they said that it's to set up your account or something not sure what that was about.

I know that sponsorships only give you a discount on parts but im not sure that you have a setup fee

Why would someone advertising a site make it sound like its a scam?

Maybe its just me, but that sounds like bad advertising.

Cool I have paid and waiting, I hope this is not a Scam

Hi guys, I have paid the 89 bucks, and all I have received are options for products at reduced prices, Now, They SAY, if you attend At least ONE HIN show, you will get ALL of your options "FREE". we shall see about that, I have signed up for the HIN show and will attend the Dallas Show and Houston. My car, 1980 Camaro Z28 , Gosh I hope it is not a Scam
