new here...

hello all, my name is Josh and I am from a business called Tru Power Motorsports. We are dealers of many different companies including Tech Art, HRE wheels, Brembo, Hartge, and about 125 more. We are located in Twin Lake, Michigan. We are just starting out so we don't have a store yet. We work out of a house and run an online store until we get enough for a store front. Thank you. Josh

Welcome to the site Josh. Do you have a Boxster? Are you a forum sponsor?

When people risk their lives, shouldn't it be for something very important?
Well, it better be.
But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?
Lots of people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well.
When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.

Josh -

Was looking over your site, do you even sell Porsche / Boxster equipment?

What? You mean you don't want to put any Edelbrock or Greddy components on your Boxster?


Anyway, Josh, fix the grammar on your website. It's hard to buy from someone who sells 150k different parts out of their home (with no information on parts, just a list of manufacturers). But that combined with the lack of understanding of basic grammar --commas, capitalization, etc., just leaves a giant flag out front saying "I'm actually a 16 year old using the old computer in my parents' basement to try to scam some people!"

Just a suggestion.

Your right, I wouldnt trust that website with my money. I wasnt at all impressed by the customer rides section... He should take the picture from that thread I started yesterday regaurding the wrecked boxster and place it on his Rides section... Maybe take credit for the lowered stance that DJ admired so much

HAHAHA that picture is great.

I guess that dusty basement with plastic drop cloths taped to the ceiling is their paint shop?

I was trying to see if I could get a glimpse of mom bringing down an after-school snack of milk-and-cookies in the background, but I guess that's cropped out.



I wouldn't let these jokers so much as service my lawnmower.

Come on now, don't be so tough on the guy. Just look at the finished product from the car above. I haven't seen waves or frosted paint like that since I fixed the qtr panel on my old chevy in high school (in my driveway with a few cans of spray paint.)

the website layout is pretty nice, i guess we all have to start somewhere, kudos to you for trying to start this from scratch. but i would remove the shop pictures from your site, i think it may be hurting your image.

O.K., so I'm thinking the guys are being a little harsh. After I read hdpt73's post I figure maybe I'm right, so I visit the site. It's obvious they're just starting out and trying to make a go of it. That's cool...until I found this under "Customer's Rides".



What did they install? The broken dual windshield wiper blade?

No Grizzly, thats the car that was in the body shop... they did all the body work and primer so that it completes the look with the clear turn signals and custom painted black stock rims.

Did they faux paint that giant rust hole on the bottom of the door for effect???

Maybe it's a 10 second sleeper and they camouflaged it that way so the competition doesn't realize 'till it's too late. In fact, maybe it's so fast that a big piece of that door moulding blew off.

It's got the pillar mounted fire extinguisher, so it must be quick...unless, of course, they're just afraid it's going to catch fire.

Thumbs down Can't Take a Flame

What a dweeb, I am sure you will do fine in business..... not!

Check all the prior posts of some of the sponsors where they were flamed a hell of a lot more than you, but they had the ability to stand up for their product and became a sponsor of this site.

You just showed everyone that you are an immature little kid, now go home Mommy's calling.
