I emailed them today to ask about the revisions to the induction kit. I am not holding my breath for a response but let's see what they say...
If I had FB I would ask them on their FB page....

I wouldn't waste your time mate.  The best way to show contempt for a company is to simply not buy their products.

The whole thing needs a redesign.  It was never a vehicle specific 'kit' in the first place, but rather 3rd party bits cobbled together.  As consumers, we can do better than that!

I emailed them a couple of weeks ago via the main contact form on their website, just in case Matt had moved on, but nothing. Nada. Squat.

Remember the Shooting Stars sketch where Vic Reeves would tell a sh*t joke, followed by silence and tumble weeds floating across the stage?  Yeah, that's Racingline for you. Completely indifferent and unable to deal with negativity.

I see they are still showing the same old crap on their website, which is pretty despicable if you ask me, considering they are well aware of it's flaws.

I had to remove mine the other week when I change the starter motor, and a large area of the paint internally has flaked off and been eaten. 🙄

The intake was also the limiting factor on my 2+ figures and it just doesn’t flow as well as the Revo.

Really? Even more sh1tness then.  What a bunch of cowboys Ted.

Yeah the Revo intake is one of the best for performance, but the noise of it just wasn't for me.  But honestly, the Revo intake is so much better made and fits so much better.  Professionals vs amateur hour rebranding cow boy f'cks.
