    hehe - it's really not a big deal Daley. I think there's like a total of 5 of us on this board who are women. Hehe

    I'm into cars, trucks, bikes (anything with a motor), car audio, computers, electronics, etc....I catch slack all the time, it's like water off my back a this point

    didn't even think twice about it honnestly.

    no need to hate!

    see, I'm going to say this, but I don't want to be rude....

    I worked my *** off for the past 8 years to get to where I am right now. I competed fairly seriously in SPL for 6 years, never more serious because I couldn't afford it. I managed to get a few sponsors back then, but nothing major (Treo was one of them that might sound familiar to some on here). I've spent countless hours, money, and efforts to get here. I'd dedicated to going t shows, even if they are 20 hours away. I try and get others involved and I try and help out when I can if someone has questions.

    To just hand off my rewards to someone else, especially to someone who is so new to the game, well, it would be hurting myself to do that.

    If you want to be sponsored I have a few tips for you.
    • You're going to have to spend the money up front, no wary around that. You have to spend a lot of money to get to this point. Kinda like an education, you have to spend the money to get a good education, then you'll be educated enough to make it all back and then some...
    • Companies don't want to sponsor someone they don't think will do them good. There are a lot of people out there who just want free product. They will get that free product then drop off the face of the earth and never be seen or heard from again, until they want more stuff. You have to be dedicated to showing your car, to competing, and to keeping it well maintaintd and updated.
    • Many times in this sport, you have young guys who are really really really interested, at the same time, those are the same guys who like to party HARD. Companies aren't going to want to have their name plastered on the car that's doing all the stupid ****, and who'se owner is getting thrown in jail thanks to public intoxication (I'm not saying this is anyone on here - it's just an example). Companies want someone who is repsectible and who will do their name good.
    • Getting in with the right people will just help your situation along that much quicker. Who you know does a lot for you. I just happened to be good friends with Chris Pate before he started to get REAL serious with this stuff. We worked together and partied together. We both competed. He works for a shop and does this stuff for a living, naturally he's going to have more connections than me. He passes some of those on to me when he can. Again, it's who you know.


    All I can really say is LEARN, get involved, and HAVE FUN! Some people get into it only to realize that they hate it, others thrive on it. I'd suggest trying it and see what you think, you never know, it might be the best thing you've ever done!

    There's other women on these boards??? JK Red, Congratulations! I think this would bring a lot of positive attention to carputers and finally put an end to that thread asking if they can keep up with head units...lol.
