    What the hell is this... Final-Gear.com

    I just found this and was kind of unhappy how they are ripping off our name

    http://final-gear.com/

    Viper and Quiky, do you guys know if these people are in violation? Did we ever register the name?

    I ran across this site a while back. The name is one thing and not the end of the world. Annoying, but meh.

    However completely ripping off our logo is a totally dick move and really lame. I sent them a quick email:

    Hi guys,

    That's a fairly dick move you know to completely rip off the logo of my site, FinalGear.com, which has been around for 11 years now (much longer than your site). It would have been nice to show some creativity on your own part to come up with something original. Not cool.

    No. It would be rather hypocritical of us to be complaining about copyright validation considering what this site started out as, wouldn't you think?

    ... I ask Herb Helbig, vehicle synthesis manager for SRT and a member of the original Team Viper development group since day one, if they'd ever thought of adding traction control. "It comes with two," he says, pointing at my feet. "Learn to use them." Got it.

      It's also is a bit idiotic considering that Google will list this site well ahead of theirs.

        Their logo is in neutral. Site should be called Neutral Gear.
